TRANSLATE Arabic Chinese French German Greek Indonesian Italian Hindi Japanese Korean Swedish Portuguese Russian Spanish Private Life in New Kingdom Egypt ... moreby Lynn Meskell. NOTE: We have 75.000 books in our library, almost 10,000 different titles. Odds are we have other copies of this same title in varying conditions, some less expensive, some better condition. We might also have different editions as well(some paperback, some hardcover, oftentimes international editions) If you don’t see what you want, please contact us and ask. We’re happy to send you a summary of the differing conditions and prices we may have for the same title. DESCRIPTION: Hardcover(256 pages) Princeton University Press(2002) Much of the literature on ancient Egypt centers on pharaohs or on elite conceptions of the afterlife. This scintillating book examines how ordinary ancient Egyptians lived their lives. Drawing on the remarkably rich and detailed archaeological. Iconographic, and textual evidence from some 450 years of the New Kingdom, as well as recent theoretical innovations from several fields, it reconstructs private and social life from birth to death. The result is a meaningful portrait composed of individual biographies, communities, and landscapes. Structured according to the cycles of life. The book relies on categories that the ancient Egyptians themselves used to make sense of their lives. Lynn Meskell gracefully sifts the evidence to reveal Egyptian domestic arrangements, social and family dynamics, sexuality, emotional experience, and attitudes toward the cadences of human life. She discusses how the Egyptians of the New Kingdom constituted and experienced self, kinship, life stages, reproduction, and social organization. And she examines their creation of communities and the material conditions in which they lived. Also included is neglected information on the formation of locality and the construction of gender and sexual identity and new evidence from the mortuary record. Including important new data on the burial

TRANSLATE Arabic Chinese French German Greek Indonesian Italian Hindi Japanese Korean Swedish Portuguese Russian Spanish Ancient Egyptian Literature: ... moreA Book of Readings by Miriam Lichtheim– Volume II: The New Kingdom. NOTE: We have 75.000 books in our library, almost 10,000 different titles. Odds are we have other copies of this same title in varying conditions, some less expensive, some better condition. We might also have different editions as well(some paperback, some hardcover, oftentimes international editions) If you don’t see what you want, please contact us and ask. We’re happy to send you a summary of the differing conditions and prices we may have for the same title. DESCRIPTION: Softcover: 239 pages. Publisher: University of California Press; 1976) This second volume of new translations is designed along the lines of the first Volume. In keeping with the ancient view. It defines literature broadly so as to include monumental inscriptions carved on stone and literary texts written on papyrus. Where the first volume outlined the gradual creation of Egyptian literary genres in the course of many centuries, the present one shows the elaboration of the genres within a single cultural period, and in a relatively short span of time. The literary production of the New Kingdom was much larger than that of the earlier periods. Hence even a whole volume devoted to it can do no more than focus on the highlights. Moreover. In the New Kingdom both the monumental inscriptions and the papyrus texts usually ran to greater length than their Middle Kingdom counterparts. The selection made from the vast quantity of stone-carved inscriptions contains famous pieces along with some less renowned ones. Together they illustrate the principal topics that were deemed appropriate to the always functional monumental context. Similarly the works written on papyrus have been selected to show the variety of themes and forms. And to single out those compositions that we outstanding in their day and have retained a timeless inte

TRANSLATE Arabic Chinese French German Greek Indonesian Italian Hindi Japanese Korean Swedish Portuguese Russian Spanish The Secret of the Hittites: The ... moreDiscovery of an Ancient Empire by C. W. Ceram. Translated from the German by Richard and Clara Winston. DESCRIPTION: Hardback with Dust Jacket: 279 pages. Publisher: Knopf; 1956) ISBN: 0880295937. The Secret of the Hittites" returns to the startling panorama of the author's first book. Gods, Graves, and Scholars" in the continued examination of the most ancient world known to man. Since the publication of C. W. Ceram's famous first work, a new discovery of enormous significance transformed the perception of ancient history. The darkest archaeological riddle of the Orient is on the verge of an ultimate and improbable resolution. And this with dramatic suddenness in the space of a few momentous years. The mysterious ruins discovered in central Turkey in 1834 were perplexing. Yet no one was willing to ascribe them to the Hittites, a people given scant acknowledgement in the Bible and dismissed as a minor Syrian tribe. It was not until 1880 that a hero of archaeology advanced the dynamic theory that there had once been a mighty Hittite Empire stretching from the Black Sea to Damascus. By 1910, only archaeologists and historians had begun to gain a faint and fragile knowledge of its lost history. Furthermore. Only in the years since 1946 has there been any hope of reading the fantastic Hittite hieroglyphic inscriptions, and only recently has anyone actually done so. Finally, almost twenty centuries after Christ, we know that twenty centuries before Christ the Indo-European Hittites descended into Asia Minor. We may now establish a third great empire beside the Babylon of Hammurabi and the Egypt of Ramses II read the first fragments of a profound unknown literature, of which Mr. Ceram provides stirring excerpts. The truth about Kadesh as one of the few battles that truly shaped world history is now known to us. The first great political treaty. Betwee

King of Egypt. King of Dreams by Gwendolyn MacEwen. DESCRIPTION: Softcover: 328 pages. Publisher: Insomniac Press; 2004) ISBN: 1894663608.

PUBLISHER REVIEW: REVIEW: In 1575 B.C. the Pharaoh Ahmose I of Thebes freed Egypt from the rule of the“foreign chiefs” The Semitic Hyksos kings, pursuing them from their capital at Tanis to the southern frontiers of Palestine. The period known as the“New Kingdom” opened up with the Eighteenth Egyptian Dynasty, a dynasty whose rulers included the“Pharaoh with breasts” Queen Hatshepsut, and the famous conqueror Thutmose III, who carved out an empire in Syria and Palestine. During the reign of Amenhotep III(1405-1367 B.C. Egypt was at the height of her glory. And foreign tribute poured in from the conquered nations of north and south. No less abundant than the wealth of Amenhotep was the wealth of the ruling priesthood of Amon in the capital city of Thebes, for Amon-Ra was supreme deity of king and state. The ancient capital of Heliopolis which had flourished in former days, and its sun-priests of Ra, had long since been eclipsed. The empire extended from Kush(Eth

Egypt: People. Gods, Pharaohs by Rose-Marie& Rainer Hagen. DESCRIPTION: Hardback with Dust Jacket: 240 pages. Publisher: Taschen; 2003) This is a huge. Very heavy and high quality art book filled with descriptions of life in ancient Egypt and with absolutely superb full color plates. It is a presentation quality publication. The world’s first strike took place in 1152 B.C. We do not know how many workers laid down their tools, but we do know why they did so. They had not been paid their rations of grain and oil, and so the tomb workers in the Valley of the Kings went on strike. In modern times, the ancient history of Egypt has only been about its rulers and monumental architecture. You will certainly find the Pyramid of Cheops and the Temples of Ramesses and Hatshepsut in this book. But what you will also find is an account of a long-neglected ... moreside of Egyptian history: the people’s everyday lives. How did they picture the world? What sort of relationship did men and women have to each other? How did they spend their leisure time? And why did they develop such a perfect technique of preserving the body after death in the form of a mummy; as light as a blown egg and as hard as a statue” The authors investigate stimulating questions and dare to take a fresh look at an ancient past that seems much more real to us from this new perspective. Rose-Marie Hagen was born in Switzerland and studied history as well as the Romance languages and literature. After longer study periods in France and Florence. She began lecturing at different institutions including the American University in Washington, D.C. Rainer Hagen was born in 1928 in Hamburg, and graduated in literature and theatre studies in Munich. He went on to work for radio and TV where his latest position has been as chief editor for Northern Germany’s public broadcasting service.

Life in Ancient Egypt by Adolf Erman. Translated by H.M. Tirard, with a New Introduction by Jon Manchip White. DESCRIPTION: Softcover: 570 pages. Publisher: Dover Publications. Inc; 1971) What was it like to live in the ancient land watered by the Nile. Thousands of years before Christ was born? How did a man earn a living? What did her wear? Where did he go in his leisure time? What was the relationship between an ordinary Egyptian and his government, his wife, his children? Was life for him grim or gray? Difficult or easy? Reverent or worldly? Did his people travel, explore, conquer? Were they very much different from those of the other great civilizations of antiquity, the Greek and the Roman? What was the nature of their science, art, magic, religion? If the past has lessons for the present, what can we deduce from ancient Egyptian life ... morethat is of value to us today? For generations scholars. Specialists, and general readers have been turning to a monumental sourcebook for the answers to such questions: Life in Ancient Egypt” by Adlof Erman. It is one of the most influential and frequently consulted works ever written, a classic in its field and the basis of numerous other studies and works. It is still one of the very few books that offer the modern reader so satisfying, informative, and complete a survey in one volume. Erman. A rigorously trained scholar, Director of the Egyptian Museum in Berlin and author of standard works on Egyptology, covers his subject thoroughly and with a wealth of interesting concrete detail. He examines ancient Egypt’s political structure, crime and police systems, domestic life and kinships, dress, amusements, religion, learning, mathematics, magic and folk beliefs, literature, art, agriculture, trades, arts and crafts, commerce, warfare, and much else. His objective point of view. Eschewing romanticism on the one hand and frigid pedantry on the other, gives us a treatment that is as trustworthy in fact as it is evocative in effect.

Egyptian Religion: The Beliefs of Ancient Egypt Explored and Explained by Lucia Gahlin. DESCRIPTION: Softover: 128 pages. Publisher: Southwater; 2002) The many gods and goddesses of ancient Egypt. And the sacred sites and temples that are dedicated to them, have fired our imaginations for centuries. Religious belief was central to life in ancient Egypt, and played a fundamental role in the development of their great society. The ancient Egyptians believed that their religious beliefs and practices would accompany them from life into death and the afterlife. In the first half of this book, the state religion is considered, with an examination of the preparation for the afterlife, including the procedures and ceremonies that followed death such as mummification and the Weighing of the Heart. Once these ceremonies were performed, the deceased’s ... moreburial site depended largely on their status and wealth. An in-depth look at mastabas, pyramids, and rock-cut tombs is vital to our understanding of the state religion of ancient Egypt. While the religion of the state concerned itself with the interaction between the gods and the pharaoh. Popular religion permeated every aspect of people’s lives. The second half of the book examines the effects of popular religion on daily activities. Magic, superstition, and ritual were by no means considered unorthodox or an alternative to the religion of the state. Often a priest who performed rituals in the state temples would also be called upon to carry out what we would call magic or sorcery. The religion of this fascinating society has been documented with maps and a wealth of beautiful photographs, reproductions and color artworks, making“Egyptian Religion” an essential reference for anyone interested in this ancient civilization.

Fayum Portraits” By Berenice Geoffrey-Schneiter. Published in New York by Assouline Publishing in 2004. description continues below the picture- DISCUSSION: Miraculously preserved by the dry sands of the Egyptian desert. Some thousand 1st-4th century painted portraits—called"Fayum" after the region they were found in—have fascinated artists and archaeologists for their strange presence. Many are idealized images with dramatic, dark-eyed gazes, yet others are startlingly realistic, capturing the character of individuals from millennia ago. In all, a portrait of a province, which became Roman, comes alive. This book tries to pierce the secret of these fragments of faces. Who were the authors of these portraits, whose modernity of execution does not cease to surprise us? What society was sufficiently rich and proud to exhibit itself ... morethus after death?
