Pharaoh's Daughter: A Novel of Ancient Egypt
- Book Review, by Julius Lester

In his introduction to this engrossing novel of ancient Egypt, Julius Lester says, "It is difficult not to see Charlton Heston when one thinks of Moses." But not in this book. Lester's Moses is a bungling teenager, scared and confused as he tries to find the courage to decide who he is and what he believes in. Raised as the pampered grandson of Pharaoh, he enjoys the attentions of three mother figures: Yocheved, his birth mother, who constantly implores him to return to his own people; Almah, his older sister, who has left her traditions to dance naked as a priestess of the goddess Hathor; and Batya, Pharoah's daughter, who saved him from death when he was a baby. But now his anger at his unresolved split identity has goaded him into a terrible act of violencean act that will have a vast impact on history. Julius Lester, a distinguished African-American writer best known for his Newbery Honor Book To Be a Slave, startled the literary world in 1981 by converting to Judaism. In Pharaoh's Daughter he follows the time-honored Jewish tradition of Midrasha way of exploring a sacred text through the use of one's imagination. Armed with an impressive knowledge of the Hebrew language and the history of ancient Egypt, he jolts us out of our expectations and brings a fresh and richly detailed perspective to the Exodus. As Moses flees with his father's blessing"You must go and come back and teach us all to be free"we can only hope that Julius Lester plans to tell the rest of the story.

Here, you'll find out what's real and what's imaginary and get today's perspective on the events, people, and places described. In each View box, you'll also find links to additional information in World Book articles and their related information. Why Ancient Times? In Ancient Times, people first began making records of events. The first great civilization was Sumer, in the Middle East, where writing was invented and history literally began. Civilization and knowledge developed in many other parts of the world, including Africa, Asia, and Europe. In time, the Roman Empire grew, and took over other civilizations. Many historians regard the fall of the West Roman Empire, in the late A.D. 400's, as marking the end of Ancient Times. The Gupta Empire in India ended at about the same time.

City states become empires and develop pointless warfare to a high art. They
despise and fear the nomadic tribes around them - often with good reason. Nomadic tribes still wandered the wide world beyond the first civilizations. Indeed in the Americas and Australia, and in Africa south of the Sahara, the nomads had no idea that any alternative lifestyle existed. Nomadic people in Europe and Asia had more contact with settled societies. They followed their herds from summer to winter pastures and constructed a social life around that seasonal movement. They lived in their own tribal units but could be broadly split into three important groups. The Mongolian peoples roamed the grasslands of central Asia and were skilled with horses; the light-brown-skinned Semitic tribes used the deserts of Arabia to rear goats and sheep; and the pale-skinned Aryans occupied much of Europe. 2,400 BC

There has been an upsurge in the study of the early cultures of the region between Aswan and Khartoum, that is southern Egypt and the northern Sudan (between the first and sixth Nile cataracts). This can be seen from new running exhibitions and publications, and the book under review.[[1]] Some museums even changed their names to reflect this new trend, e.g. the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, which now has a Department of Egyptian, Nubian and Near Eastern art. The Sudan Archaeological Research Society[[2]] operates from the British Museum with David Welsby as honorary secretary. A colourful journal, , is published by the society and edited by him. There is a similar society in Germany.[[3]] In South Africa very little worth has been done on this subject.[[4]] The region under discussion was known in ancient times as Kush (Egyptian Kash), the Ethiopia ('burnt-face people') of the classical tradition, but not to be confused with the modern state. Sometimes it is called Nubia, but this refers to the region and not the modern language nor modern tribes with the same name. Incidentally, the Egyptian word for gold is

Wallis Budge From the Preface by Sir E.A. Wallis Budge: The Papyrus of Ani was found at Thebes, and was acquired by me for the Trustees of the British Museum in 1888. It measures 78 feet by 1 foot 3 inches, is mounted under glass in thirty-seven sheets, and bears the number 10470. It is the largest, the most perfect, and the best illuminated of all the papyri containing copies of the Theban Recension of the Book of the Dead. Its rare Vignettes, Hymns, and Chapters, and its descriptive Rubrics, render it of unique importance for the study of the Book of the Dead, and it holds a very high place among the funerary papyri that were written between B.C. 1500 and B.C. 1350... The Papyrus of Ani is, in short, typical of the Book of the Dead in vogue among the Theban nobles of his time... ...and the pious Egyptian, whether king or ploughman, queen or maid-servant, lived with the teaching of the Book of the Dead before his eyes, and he was buried according to its directions, and he based his hope of everlasting life and happiness upon the efficacy of its hymns and prayers, and words of power. By him its Chapters were not regarded as materials for grammatical exercises, but as all-powerful guides along the road which, passing through death and the grave, led into the realms of light and life, and into the presence of the divine being Osiris, the conqueror of death, who made men and women "to be born again."

Ancient Egypt
An Overview
People began to settle along the Nile River between about 8000 and 5000 BC, moving off the Saharan grasslands into the protection of the river banks, making use of the annual flooding of the river to irrigate their crops and provide fertilization. After thousands of years of taking root, the Egyptian civilization eventually burst into flower under the first of the pharaohs in about 3000 BC and lasted a record-breaking 2700 years. Egypt was ancient even to the ancients. Indeed, the classical Greeks and Romans viewed Ancient Egypt with the wonder with which we in the 21st century view the ruins of Greece and Rome.
Egypt's civilization is generally divided into four eras:
  • The Archaic Period (3100 to 2800 BC) during which the early pharaohs consolidated their power over the Nubians in the south.
  • The Old Kingdom (2700 to 2200 BC) was the period of the great pyramid building. (See note)
  • The Middle Kingdom (2000 to 1800 BC) was marked by expanding political strength and an expanding economy.

Nubian Royalty
The ancient region of Nubia was located in northeast Africa, in what is now southern Egypt and northern Sudan. The first group of Nubian people that we know much about, called the A-Group by archaeologists, lived around 3500 BC, but there is evidence of civilization in Nubia as far back as 8000 BC. Because Nubians were great archers, the Egyptians called Nubia "Ta-Seti," or Land of the Bow. The name Nubia came into use in the Middle Ages. Although it was a hot, dry land, ancient Nubia was a treasure trove of gold, ivory, stone, and other riches, and therefore a tempting target to foreign rulers. At times Egypt ruled Nubia; at other times, various Nubian kingdoms flourished. The great kingdom of Kush (or Cush) was located in south Nubia. The ancient Greeks called it Ethiopia. In the 8th century BC, Kush led by King Piankhi (or Piye) and later his brother and successor King Shabaka conquered Egypt. These Kushite kings founded Egypt's 25th ruling dynasty. After Shabaka died, Piankhi's son Shebitku became pharaoh; he was succeeded by his brother Taharqa. But the Nubian Dynasty's reign in Egypt proved to be short-lived. In the middle of the 7th century BC, Taharqa was driven out of Egypt by the Assyrians. He and his cousin Tanutamon, who succeeded Taharqa as king of Kush, tried but failed to regain the Egyptian throne.

ANCIENT EGYPT ASSIGNMENT Well-researched, well-written historical fiction can be a useful and interesting way to learn about the past. Using the knowledge you have already acquired about Ancient Egypt, supplemented by the information below, you are to write a 2 to 3 page short story. Remember, good historical fiction includes accurate and appropriate information about the people, place, and time period in which the story is set. You must enhance the historical significance and depth of your story with information and descriptions of images from at least three of the categories listed below. You may include information from more than one Kingdom (especially those topics listed under the Old Kingdom) since many of the beliefs, practices, and artistic guidelines developed during the Old Kingdom changed little throughout Egypt's long existence.

Current Archaeological Discoveries in Egypt -Part 2
Ancient Egyptian Tomb Discovered in Saqqara February 12, 2001 - Cairo - Reuters A tomb dating back to the reign of New Kingdom Pharaoh Amenhotep IV in the 14th century BC has been discovered in the Giza suburb of Sakkara, an antiquities official said on Sunday. ``This is a unique discovery because it is the first time we have uncovered a tomb in Sakkara from the reign of Akhenaton, who had his capital at Akhetaton (now called Tel al-Amarna) in Upper Egypt,'' Adel Hussein, director of Sakkara at the Supreme Antiquities Council, told Reuters. The tomb once occupied by the high priest Meryneith, whose name means ``the beloved of Neith (goddess of war and hunting),'' was discovered by a Dutch-Egyptian archaeological mission on January 31 during excavation of New Kingdom tombs at Sakkara. The excavation work, which is still under way, has so far uncovered two store rooms in the east of the tomb, three small chapels in the west, wall reliefs that include depictions of funeral rituals, five columns with hieroglyphic inscriptions and a burial chamber, Hussein noted. ``No mummies have yet been uncovered, but we have come across bones. There is a good chance we will find a mummy once excavation work on the burial chamber is complete,'' he added.

Origin of the Ancient Egyptians
by Cheikh Anta Diop The general acceptance, as a sequel to the work of Professor [Louis B.] Leakey, of the hypothesis of mankind's monogenetic and African origin, makes it possible to pose the question of the peopling of Egypt and even of the world in completely new terms. More than 150,000 years ago, beings morphologically identical with the man of today were living in the region of the great lakes at the sources of the Nile and nowhere else. This notion, and others which it would take too long to recapitulate here, form the substance of the last report presented by the late Dr. Leakey at the Seventh Pan-African Congress of Pre-History in Addis Ababa in 1971. It means that the whole human race had its origin, just as the ancients had guessed, at the foot of the mountains of the Moon. Against all expectations and in defiance of recent hypotheses it was from this place that men moved out to people the rest of the world. From this two facts of capital importance result: (a) of necessity the earliest men were ethnically homogeneous and negroid. Gloger's law, which

W e headed to Cairo originally thinking of Egypt as little more than pyramids and King Tut; perhaps a pretty common image held my many. Boy, were we wrong! The history of Egypt is complex, and the vast period of time is hard to imagine. In the United States, we think of things being old when they are 150-200 years old. In Europe, Old is 500-1000 years old, or up to 2000 years. But Egypt has a rich history and culture that began over 5000 years ago! We were glad to have Susan's brother, Jon, as our guide and interpreter. It made our time in Egypt more enjoyable and much less frustrating than it would have been otherwise, and allowed us to spend more time seeing Egypt instead of having our noses in a map or an Arabic book. And rather than being carted around with a group of tourists, we were able to see places the tour buses don't go, and to linger where we had the most interest. Our brains are stuffed with great memories, as well as lots of facts, from our trip to Egypt. Learn More!
