Unit 1: Ancient Near East Egyptians Egypt's Influence on Greece, Reconsidered From Lefkowitz, Mary R. "Ancient History, Modern Myths." As reproduced in Black Athena Revisited , ed. Mary R. Lefkowitz and Guy MacLean Rogers (Chapel Hill, NC: University of North Carolina Press, 1996), 12-19. The question of Greek origins recently has been broached again, and become a subject of passionate popular discussion, with the publication of the first two volumes of Martin Bernal’s Black Athena: The Afroasiatic Roots of Classical Civilization in 1987 and 1991. Unlike most of his Afrocentric admirers, Bernal can read hieroglyphics and Greek, and he claims to know other ancient languages; and though his field is political science, he seems at home in the chronological and geographical complexities of the ancient Mediterranean. Moreover he insists that he reached Afrocentric conclusions about Greek origins independently of the Afrocentrists. “I had been studying these issues for eight years,” he writes in his first volume, “before I became aware of this literature.” As Bernal’s discussion, notes, and bibliography testify, he has read widely and thought strenuously about the Mediterranean as a whole, if not exactly with an open mind, at least without giving priority to the Greeks, as classically trained scholars tend to do. Still, his assessment of the evidence for the Egyptian contribution starts from the premise that European scholars have distorted the evidence, documentary and archeological. His first volume, subtitled

By Marie Parsons
From Death and the Afterlife in Ancient Egypt by John H. Taylor From the earliest days of royal and noble burials in ancient Egypt, objects and jewelry of gold, precious stones, alabaster and faience had been placed within the tombs for the use of the kings in the afterlife. Even the golden masks on the deceased, like this example of King Psaunnes, would have been hacked off. It was important that the deceased be provided for in the afterlife as well as he had been in this life. But often, for many reasons, then as now, the temptation of the sight of a treasure trove proved strong enough to overcome the devotion and esteem generally given to the king, his wives and his courtiers. One hundred deben of copper, in the 20 th Dynasty a thief’s share of loot, was equivalent to ten months of worker rations, in one haul. The gain was perhaps worth the risk. So thieves have always thought. Providing the dead with commodities and objects of value thus brought with it the threat of tomb robbery. The tombs of the elite were most at risk, since they contained a higher proportion of valuable objects, but even poor graves were robbed for the sake of the meager offerings and adornments placed with the dead. Grave robbers were present from the earliest times. Old Kingdom inscriptions contained warnings that robbers would be judged by the gods in the hereafter. Severe punishments awaited in this life as well, more definite than any curse.

Downloadable Script of a DVD video lecture, by
Karl W. Luckert
Portland Oregon Heliopolis While no land is holier than any other, there appears to be nevertheless one place on Planet Earth that qualifies as having been the religious and intellectual birth-place of Western Civilization. This place in ancient history was the city of Junu , in Egypt , dedicated to the Sun deity and named “ Heliopolis ” by the Greeks. The stones that formerly were assembled here for the sanctuary of Atum-Ra are scattered now. They were re-used among generations of later structures. So little is left of this place, that no travel office could show me a picture of it. I had to come here and see for myself. The ancient Sun temple that stood here, in Heliopolis , is known to have contained the bnbn -stone. And this sacred stone is believed to have been the prototype of all subsequent Egyptian obelisks. It symbolized the rising of the sungod Atum-Ra at the moment of creation. It is somewhat unlikely that this only surviving obelisk, here in Heliopolis , is the original one that stood in the main temple. But this being the only one that remains, its presence at this site is enough of a coincidence to feel inspired to quote from an ancient Pyramid Text that reminisces the first sunrise at the moment of creation (1652-55)—according to the ancient Heliopolitan “trinitarian” theology.

Ancient Nordic Egypt
by John Paul Jones
I often travel to Egypt. It provides an excellent holiday for a White nationalist: Beautiful weather, a friendly people with an acute awareness of the Jewish problem, a TV news station broadcasting uncensored news in English and a wealth of history. However, as much as I enjoy Egypt, it is sadly a primitive shadow of its former greatness. The Egyptians have reverted back to a desert economy, dependent on tourism, handouts and revenue from the Suez Canal to support the whole country.
I am amazed when people claim that the former great Egyptian empire was founded by Blacks. Anyone making such a claim has clearly never been there. Just a walk around the Egyptian museum in Cairo will dispel these myths. (A huge building, if you inspected every artifact on display for 30 seconds it would take you 9 months to see them all!)
The fact is that the decline of Egypt began when the original Mediterranean and Nordic founders were completely bastardized by racial mixing. The period known as the 25th Dynasty (746 - 655 BC) is the final resting place of Egypt in world history. It was at this time that Egypt had become race-mixed from the bottom of its society to the top and the earliest race-mixed pharaohs with Black features appeared.

    Ancient Egypt:
    A bibliography Mummies…Pyramids…Pharaohs. The history of ancient Egypt spans 5,000 years, and much of what we know about this long period does come from funeral artifacts and paintings found in the pyramids. The full story is much more than how the Egyptians buried their dead, however. Hieroglyphic carvings, papyrus fragments, and artifacts leave an intriguing picture of a culture of artisans, engineers, doctors, scribes, and laborers who celebrated life with as much enthusiasm as they prepared for their afterlife. This select bibliography was developed to support a sixth-grade interdisciplinary unit on ancient Egypt. Books were chosen primarily for their readability, appropriateness for sixth graders, and content. Generally speaking, I did not include picture books, although many beautiful picture books about ancient Egypt have been published. (I did make one exception in order to include Eve Bunting's beautiful title I am the Mummy Heb-Nefert.) One or two titles in this bibliography would be challenging reading for sixth graders, and I have tried to note these in my annotations. I have included a mix of fiction and nonfiction. Works of literature represent several genres, including romantic suspense, science fiction, mystery, poetry and folklore. Nonfiction books were selected for their organization and their usefulness across the curriculum. I found titles by searching the archives of LM-NET , the premier listserv for practicing school library media specialists. I had hoped to limit my selection to books currently in print, but there were too many wonderful books that are currently out of print to impose such an artificial limit. Most, if not all, of these books should be on the shelves in school and public libraries.

    In the Fullness of Time: Masterpieces of Egyptian Art from American Collections
    Blockbuster touring exhibits of ancient Egyptian antiquities, nearly always accompanied by grand glossy catalogues, are much in vogue these days, both in the States and Europe. This trend continues to speak of the perennial fascination of the wide general public with the colourful civilization of Egypt of the pharaohs, which can only be seen as extremely healthy for the growth and future development of Egyptology. Patrick F. Houlihan visited an exhibition of some of the finest pieces from collections in the US, touring some lesser-known venues. For those who would like to take in a display of Egyptian treasures, but do not live nearby one of the venues scheduled for these colossal events, or who might not wish to fight the large crowds, big-city traffic, and costs, there are a considerable number of other outstanding presentations currently underway in smaller localities on both continents. These shows are a superb opportunity to catch a view of an array of brilliant works of ancient Egyptian art. It is also quite encouraging to note that important Egyptian exhibitions are being organized in mid-sized cities, reaching even more people, where the world of the pharaohs previously, may have never been the subject of focus at the respective institutions (also see, for example, AE 3 no. 3 [2002] pp. 48-51).

    this summary as a doc file HERE
    SUMMARY Environmental interpretations of social history have become a matter of growing scientific interest. In this respect, pharaonic Egypt is among the richest as well as unique fields of research: besides the Nile Valley, there were few regions in the ancient world where everyday interdependence of man and nature has been so close and effective a factor in the social and political genesis. The extent of our knowledge about the ecology of Ancient Egypt allows us to begin a dynamic reconstruction of the environmental conditions during the emergence of pharaonic civilization as well as through its several thousand-year evolution. At the same time, the importance and true range of natural processes which influenced Ancient Egyptian history have yet to be sufficiently estimated. In other words, the environment in its transformations has never been interpreted by scholars as one of the main characters in the "dramatic theater" of pharaonic civilization. This can partly be explained by the omission of relevant information or, even, the use of obsolescent scientific data. Examples of this include, among others, information on the changes of the Holocene climate. This monograph presents an important first step in the socio-ecological history of Ancient Egypt in the chronological limits from the Fourth to Second Millennium BC (all dates in this Summary are calendar).

The information which has been yielded on the southern Levantian Timnian Tradition (a pastoral tradition existing between 7000-3000 BP) is invaluable. Settlement patterns and the adaptive responses of the peoples to their changing environment is examined in graphic detail.

    [Excerpted from Egypt: A Country Study. Helen Chapin Metz, ed. Washington, DC: Federal Research Division of the Library of Congress, 1990]
    Historical Setting
    THE ROOTS OF EGYPTIAN civilization go back more than 6,000 years to the beginning of settled life along the banks of the Nile River. The country has an unusual geographical and cultural unity that has given the Egyptian people a strong sense of identity and a pride in their heritage as descendants of humankind's earliest civilized community. Within the long sweep of Egyptian history, certain events or epochs have been crucial to the development of Egyptian society and culture. One of these was the unification of Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt sometime in the third millennium B.C. The ancient Egyptians regarded this event as the most important in their history, comparable to the "First Time," or the creation of the universe. With the unification of the "Two Lands" by the legendary, if not mythical, King Menes, the glorious Pharaonic Age began. Power was centralized in the hands of a god-king, and, thus, Egypt became the first organized society. The ancient Egyptians were the first people of antiquity to believe in life after death. They were the first to build in stone and to fashion the arch in stone and brick. Even before the unification of the Two Lands, the Egyptians had developed a plow and a system of writing. They were accomplished sailors and shipbuilders. They learned to chart the heavens in order to predict the Nile flood. Their physicians prescribed healing remedies and performed surgical operations. They sculpted in stone and decorated the walls of their tombs with naturalistic murals in vibrant colors. The legacy of ancient Egypt is written in stone across the face of the country from the pyramids of Upper Egypt to the rock tombs in the Valley of the Kings to the Old Kingdom temples of Luxor and Karnak to the Ptolemaic temples of Edfu and Dendera and to the Roman temple to Isis on Philae Island.

A chronology may be either relative that is, locating related events relative to each other or absolute locating these events to specific dates in a Chronological Era .

    The best-studied and most widely spoken of the world's language families. Similarities between I-E languages were noted even in ancient times, but the key realization that they derived from an extinct protolanguage, and the important connection to the Indo-Iranian languages, were first clearly stated by William Jones in 1786. Within a century scholars had produced the first reconstruction of Proto-Indo-European. One of the striking features about PIE is its reliance on vowel changes in conjugation; some of the rare survivals of this in English are verb paradigms such as sing/sang/sung. PIE had a rich system of inflections, including three numbers (singular/dual/plural) and three genders. A readily available reference on Proto-Indo-European is the back of the American Heritage Dictionary , a readily available source on PIE and quite interesting to anyone interested in etymology. Why be satisfied with a derivation from Latin or Germanic when you can trace a word back to PIE?
