From Combining archaeological and environmental evidence with iconographic analysis, this study examines the place of the dog in pre-Pharaonic Egypt. After a discussion of the types of fox, jackal and hyena that would have inhabited Palaeolithic and prehistoric Egypt, Gransard-Desmond discusses the domestication of the dog, the development of different types, the history of the relationship between man and dog, the different uses made of dogs and their role in religion. In addition to seals, decorated tablets, figurines and paintings, the inclusion of dog figures in burial assemblages hints at their special place in early Egyptian society. Includes a catalogue of objects and sites.

Du site de l'éditeur : À l’occasion de la commémoration du centenaire de son installation dans le palais Mounira au Caire, l’Institut français d’archéologie orientale, en association avec le Conseil suprême des antiquités de l’Égypte, présente au Musée du Caire une rétrospective des travaux archéologiques menés au cours des 25 dernières années. Durant cette période, une importance croissante a été donnée à l’exploration des zones désertiques de part et d’autre de la Vallée du Nil, sans pour autant négliger des zones mieux connues comme celle des Pyramides, proches du Caire. Cette exposition témoigne de ces récents développements, en proposant une sélection d’objets exhumés par les fouilleurs dans une dizaine de sites, illustrant la variété des époques et des problématiques concernées.

From the book cover: From Áha, king of the 1st Dynasty at Memphis (2920 B.C.), to the pleasure palaces at Zerukha, this fascinating A-Z dictionary places more than 1,500 entries on the rich world of ancient Egypt right at the readers fingertips. The first single-volume reference of its kind, [this book] vividly combines the historical, religious, creative, artistic, military, and personal details of this venerable civilization on the Nile.
Covered in this easy-to-use dictionary is a wealth of information from the Predynastic period around 3000 B.C. to the fall of the New Kingdom in 1070 B.C. ...
Abundantly illustrated with over 170 maps, charts, and drawings based on reliefs, paintings, and statues, [this book] is an extraordinary compendium of the vitality, daring and energy of the dynasties of ancient Egypt as they established new horizons of art, architecture, and spiritual insight on the human journey through time.
book coverA Glimmer of Light from the Eye of a Giant
Tabular Evidence of a Monument in Harmony with the Universe
Joseph Turbeville
ISBN 1552124010
© 2000   Trafford Publishing
Categories :  Archaeology  
From the book cover: A mathematical combination of the Fibonacci series with a process of number reduction by distillation led to the development of several numerical tables that provide evidence of a direct numerical connection to the Great Pyramid and the cosmological order of the universe.

Reviewed by Francesca: What a title! How promising! The author may be ahead of modern thinking and mathematical inclinations and beliefs, but he sure has a clear view of what his own thinking process is. He says that many of the summation numbers and ratios he comes up with are present in the Great pyramid and in nature: i.e. in petal counts, in plant stems, in leaf arrangements and in pine cones. Whether the author discovered something new or only explained clearly something we simply never saw is irrelevant: His work remains exceptional and enlightening. This book may be small in size, but its contents follow an old law of nature explained to me by my own great-grandmother: 'Precious things often come in small containers and small doses.' Thank you, Joseph Turbeville, for your 'receptivity of any little nudge that life may give you.' And now, one question: Did the Egyptians know about quantum physics, and what they were doing while building the pyramids, or was it simply instinctive?
