CLASSIFICATION: Faceted Peridot Ovals. ORIGIN: Burma. 19th Century. SIZE: Length: 6mm. Width: 4mm. Depth: 2mm. All measurements approximate. WEIGHT: Approximately 0.93 Carats(the pair) NOTES: Upon request we can set your gemstones as a ring. Pendant, or as earrings(click for more information) DETAIL: The name“peridot” is derived from the Arabic"faridat" meaning"gem" Peridot was mined as early as 3000 B.C. on an island in the Red Sea off the coast of Aswan. Egypt known to the Greeks and Persians as“Zebirget” or“Zabargad” later renamed“St. John’s Island by Medieval Crusaders) This barren little mound of land was one of the best-guarded areas of the ancient world. The Egyptians valued peridot so highly that guards stationed on the island were given orders to kill anyone approaching the shore without permission. Many pieces of ancient Egyptian jewelry(some as much as 4,000 years old) featuring peridot have been uncovered by archaeologists. To the ancient Egyptians, the glow of Peridot symbolized"Ra" their sun god. According to some accounts, peridot gemstones were a traditional“gift” given by the Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt to their High Priests, ensuring according to one source, that the priests might"keep their minds free from envious thoughts and jealousies" concerning the pharaoh's powers and wealth. Here are two absolutely gorgeous. Pastel green faceted peridot ovals from Burma. High quality, transparent, at a minimum eye clean, these lustrous semi-precious gemstones possess a beautiful, light, citrus character.

The Search for Cleopatra by Michael Foss. DESCRIPTION: Hardback with Dust Jacket: 192 pages. Publisher: Arcade Publishing; 1997) ISBN: 1559704225. Cleopatra. ... moreThe myths surrounding her are such that it is a daunting task to separate the real person from the legend. For centuries she has been portrayed as a frivolous oriental temptress who seduced first Julius Caesar and then Marc Antony. A woman without scruples who used her sexual wiles to subvert the course of Roman rule. In this biography Michael Foss looks through and beyond the myths. Using fresh research to bring to vivid life the historical Cleopatra. Cleopatra was a descendant not of pharaohs but of the Macedonian rulers who succeeded after the death of Alexander the Great in 323 B.C. The dynasty founded by Ptolemy. Alexander's crafty and seasoned general, shrewdly grafted Greek sensibilities to the ancient religions of the land it occupies. Eventually the Ptolemies followed Alexander's example and pronounced themselves gods, intermarrying to ensure the purity of their bloodline. What was ensured, of course, was decline. Culture and diversity thrived under the Ptolemies. But Egypt was an unruly kingdom, a complex and volatile chemistry of cultures. And the Ptolemies ran to fat. Egypt's decay coincided with the rise of Rome, and it is in the contest between East and West that Cleopatra's story unfolds. The Romans greatly feared Cleopatra. She represented decadence and chaos, and her entanglements with Rome’s mighty rulers threatened its sense of order. To the Romans, she was the Orient; intriguing, entrapping, and dangerous. Yet as Foss shows. Cleopatra played her hand in the only manner she could. Determined that her kingdom would survive, she was prepared to do whatever it took to retain power and very nearly achieved dominance of the whole of the eastern Mediterranean world. When finally she surrendered her ambitions, it was with the larger-than-life style that inspired ancient chroniclers, and Shakespeare and Hollywood alike. Fully illus

NEW Ancient Egypt Pharaoh Akhenaten Historical Fiction
King of Egypt. King of Dreams by Gwendolyn MacEwen. DESCRIPTION: Softcover: 328 pages. Publisher: Insomniac Press; 2004) ISBN: 1894663608. MacEwen sets out to write a deeply serious novel that also functions as entertaining historical fiction. The novel's hero is Akhenaton. Pharaoh of Egypt's Eighteenth Dynasty, who was the first ruler to introduce the idea of monotheism. Akhenaton's single-mindedness in his quest for his own brand of reason is a powerfully paradoxical distillation of the artistic temperament: originality, fertility and beauty set against death and despair and an inability to love. Author Gwendolyn MacEwen was born in Toronto in 1941. The author of numerous books of award-winning poetry. Including A Breakfast for Barbarians, The Shadow-Maker and The T.E. Lawrence Poems, she also published novels, plays, travel ... morememoirs and children's books. CONDITION: Remainder mark on bottom. Otherwise New, never read.

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.

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.

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?
