Volume 45, Number 5 Chicago House Rescuing History Written and photographed by Arthur Clark Take me to Chicago." Egyptologists, artists and photographers working out of this rambling headquarters are rescuing history, recording the inscriptions and reliefs on endangered ancient monuments before they crumble into dust. With what they learn, they're rewriting history, too. Among the most intriguing recent discoveries is that the pharaoh Tutankhamen, long held to have been a youth with no real claim to fame when he died in 1325 BC, may in fact have been a mature, chariot-riding warrior who led an army against Hittites and Nubians. One hypothesis: An official "coverup" after Tutankhamen's death, perhaps of a battle wound, expunged records of his military exploits (See box, page 45).

Voyages of the Pyramid Builders: The True Origins of the Pyramids from Lost Egypt to Ancient America > Customer Review #1: Nice theory, but dry, dry, dry

VOYAGES OF THE PYRAMID BUILDERS by Robert Schoch is the geologist famous for re-dating the Sphinx (with John Anthony West) thousands of years earlier than Egyptologists had determined. However, Schoch is not much of a writer, and even with a co-author, this book is about as exciting as your college physics textbook. The problem is over-research. I get the feeling the Schoch is so used to writing academic papers that he feels that every single fact must be documented and footnoted. In the popular press, the reader is willing to go along with some ideas as long as they are documented now and then. Once you get past the format, its not hard to apprehend Schochs primary theme. He believes that the pyramid structure has not popped up all over the globe by accident, but that ancient mariners brought the ideas with them. He wont date the time of this migration, but it sounds quite a bit like an Atlantean diffusion. Schoch finds pyramids in China, India, Africa, the Mid-east and the Americas. There also are the mounds in North America.

by Denis Wright On -Line Museum Guide: Cases 1 - 10
Case 1 - Archaeology Case 2 - The Etruscans
There are many puzzles surrounding the Etruscans, including their place of origin. They were at their height of prominence between 700-500 B.C. comprising a loose federation of agricultural, seafaring and commercial cities in north western Italy. Most knowledge of this lively culture comes from frescoes and artefacts found in their elaborate rock cut tombs, often clustered in large numbers. The cutaway model at the bottom of the case with the sculptures of a man and woman is characteristic of tombs about 400 B.C. Great technical competence and vigour rather than brilliant artistry is seen in the typical 'Black Pottery' painted terracotta head and the bronze fibula. The Etruscans merit attention in their own right, but it is their influence upon the Romans which is best remembered. Examples here are the introduction of the arch and barrel vault, chariot racing, gladiatorial contests, use of symbols of authority (the fasces) and the use of auspices in administration of the state.

Legend: The Genesis of Civilization

Egyptologist David Rohl challenged long held beliefs about ancient Egyptian history and its timeline in his first book, A Test of Time (a.k.a. Pharaohs and Kings in its American incarnation). In so doing, he backed into demonstrating that early Hebrew tradition and history correlates with the records of Egypt and other regional nations of the time, from the Patriarch Joseph to the initial Israelite kings. This book continues that re-evaluation of history by adding a fresh look at the earlier... more...

Rider Notes: November 21, 1997
Breakfast: The usual Lunch After a few hours hiking around the pyramids, we paused for lunch in the shadow of the Sphinx (see our Person of the Day ). Sitting on enormous stone blocks in the Temple of the Sphinx, we pulled bread, cheese, and vegetables out of our bags and started making sandwiches. The Sphinx, inscrutable as ever, did not seem to mind, but the passing hordes of tourists eyed our food hungrily. One young Egyptian schoolgirl even asked andrEa for a taste of her avocado, but failed to correctly answer andrEa's riddle. Dinner Once back in Cairo, we hunted out a restaurant that had been recommended to us and had an honest-to-goodness sit-down meal. Everyone started with soup and salad. The meat-eating men moved on to moza (roast lamb on rice) and fatta (see our Food of the Day ), while the women stuck with plates of rice and vegetables. Food of the Day: Fatta (with rice)
Fatta is a dish of sticky rice mixed with bread that as been soaked and fried in garlic. In case this isn't enough garlic, some extra cloves are added to the top of the mixture. We ate the whole plate and then wondered why our after-dinner taxi driver kept making faces when we spoke to him.

God Against the Gods: The History of the War Between Monotheism and Polytheism > Customer Review #1: Kirsch Is Usually Much Better

As a rule, I am a huge fan of Mr. Kirschs books. He is a very provocative writer on religious issues and certainly has produced another interesting volume here. However, I wasnt as pleased with this one as I have been with his previous works. In this book, Mr. Kirsch examines the triumph of monotheism over polytheism in the West beginning in the fourth century AD. In it, he takes through the period of Emperor Constantine and those that followed him, particularly Julian. He uses these two men to illustrate the competing factions of Christianity (Constantine) and "paganism" (Julian). And, in many ways, he succeeds in making an important point: that, despite what we would like to believe and often put in our histories, the triumph of Judeo-Christian monotheism was by no means easy or assured. As usual, it is a good point and one worth making.

African Historiography
Joel A. Rogers, a Jamaican scholar, whose work in the field of African world biography is still not appreciated as well as it should be by blacks, is comparatively unknown by whites. The following quote is from my Introduction to the re-publication of his book, World's Great Men of Color "J. A. Rogers devoted at least fifty years of his life to researching great black personalities and the roles they played in the development of nations, civilizations, and cultures. This book is his greatest achievement. In his lifetime his books did not reach a large popular reading audience. All of them were privately printed and circulated mainly in the black communities; he died, unfortunately, on the eve of the "Black Studies Revolution." Mr. Rogers had already delivered what some of the radical black students were demanding. He had looked at the history of people of African origin, and had showed how their history is an inseparable part of the history of mankind. J. A. Rogers started his research at a time when a large number of black people had some doubts about their contribution to human history. In books like

Egypt History
The Ancient Empire of the Nile
The valley of the “long river between the deserts,” with the annual floods, deposits of life-giving silt, and year-long growing season, was the seat of one of the earliest civilizations built by humankind. The antiquity of this civilization is almost staggering, and whereas the history of other lands is measured in centuries, that of ancient Egypt is measured in millennia. Much is known of the period even before the actual historic records began. Those records are abundant and, because of Egypt's dry climate, have been well preserved. Inscriptions have unlocked a wealth of information; for example, the existing fragments of the Palermo stone are engraved with the records of the kings of the first five dynasties. The great papyrus dumps offer an enormous amount of information, especially on the later periods of ancient Egyptian history.

"Aisha" is an intriguing and mesmerizing story of an unforgettable character who comes alive in the author's words. Aisha is fiery, passionate and determined, yet feminine and desirable. She is a believable heroine, one that will be admired by modern women. The factors that affected and directed her life show us that adversity cannot quench a lively spirit.

Will the real Nubians please stand up? Geography, we may say, is partly discovered and partly invented. Every region of the globe can be defined, objectively, by a unique combination of mountains, plains, rivers and other topographic features. But geography, like all other realms of human knowledge, is never wholly objective. Every inhabited regions is also a landscape of the mind, where it may appear very different to its inhabitants and to intruders. To the inhabitants it has the beauty of familiarity; it is part of the definition of the Self, or in other words of “We”. To the outsiders its appeal, if any, may lay in its unfamiliarity; it is often part of the definition of the Other, or of “They”. The same is true in regard to history . It begins, in theory, with an objective record of events, but that record is refracted through the eyes of human observers and recorders, and it too becomes part of the definition of the Self or of the not-Self. In the process it becomes in some degree myth and in some degree propaganda. Again, it may appear very different to those whose ancestors did and did not take part in it.
