Ancient and Modern Mysteries of Civilization: The great mystical ways of the ancients

by Gina T. Gibbons

Why is humanity trying to find out what was millions of years ago, what knowledge did ancient civilizations have? We are looking for a source, because we think that by revealing it, we will know why we exist. Mankind wants to find where the starting point is, where it all began, because it thinks that there probably has an answer “for what is all this” and what will be at the end.The history of civilizations has more than one thousand years. During this time, whole cultures appeared and disappeared on the planet, about which very little is currently known. Scientists, however, argue that almost all of them had a very high level of development that surpasses the modern one many times.In the book “Ancient and Modern Mysteries of the World” we will acquaint readers with obscure pages ...

The Moctezuman: A SciFi Horror Comedy (Lunch Reads Book 1)

by E.C. Stever

"It's The Martian meets The Evil Dead... at the end of the Aztec Empire." A new prehistoric scifi horror from an Ancient Alien visitor. I wish he'd hurry up and sacrifice me, like I planned it. Otherwise I might die in this dank temple. But here he stands, nephew to the emperor of a quarter-million Aztec warriors, and Moctezuma does the one thing I don't want: he waits. I've been locked up on this planet too long. If I don't get home soon, I'll be one dead alien. All I really need is for Moctezuma to drag me up to the altar, pluck out my beating heart, maybe coat his forearms with my blood if he has time. Is that so much to ask? I wonder...Maybe Moctezuma knows what I really am. I mean, I look human. At least I think I got all the head-holes in the right places. But what if Moctezum...

For a Hundred Centuries, from her Sacred Seat the Cat Watched and Beheld the Pharaohs Raise the Greatest Civilization of History: Mystical Egypt

by M.G. Hawking

Explore History’s Most Magnificent Civilization and its Profound Mystical Knowledge.For centuries, devoted scholars have endeavored to penetrate the mysteries of Ancient Egypt, the stone-age culture that abruptly rose to create the greatest civilization of known history. Champollion, founder of Egyptology, was the first of a thousand such men, living simply in the heat and dust, trying to read for us the riddle of the achievements of a mysterious civilization, to snatch from the secretive soil the science and technology, the art and literature, the history and wisdom of Ancient Egypt. By its side Sumeria's culture was but a crude beginning; not even the culture of Greece or Rome would surpass it, far less our own.How did a small community just emerging from a Neolithic stage suddenly gen...

VACATION TO ANCIENT EGYPT

by Anne Elizabeth Nixon

Ancient Egypt is seen through the eyes of the author as she and her son visit in 1980. On a camel ride out into the desert scattered with huge pyramids, they're invited into the tent of an old Egyptian man who serves them tea—and she wonders, have their cups ever been washed?
She tells of their travel by rail from Frankfurt, Germany, with a day's stopover in Rome, Italy, and along the coast of Greece to Athens; then by air they are off to Cairo.
After a few days in that ancient city they rent a car to begin a trip south through small towns along the Nile River to Luxor. The Karnak Temple has stood there for over a thousand years and its ruins are spectacular, as is the light show that reflects into a lake. One day they ride to the sweltering Valley of the Queens, and the n...

Classical Antiquity: A Captivating Guide to Ancient Greece and Rome and How These Civilizations Influenced Europe, North Africa, and Western Asia

If you want to discover the captivating history of Classical Antiquity, then keep reading...Free History BONUS Inside!From about the 9th to 5th centuries BCE, the population of Greece grew unprecedently large, expanding from about 800,000 people to as many as 13 million. About a quarter million of these lived in Athens. The average size of urban households during this period grew considerably, a fact that suggests that food was suddenly available in excesses sufficient to keep larger families healthy and alive much more effectively than just a millennium earlier. Bigger families meant bigger armies and larger communities that would eventually grow into the metropolises of Classical Greece. This incredible stretch of time is called Classical Antiquity; the age in which Western civilizat...

Chaucer and the Poets: An Essay on Troilus and Criseyde

by Winthrop Wetherbee

In this sensitive reading of Chaucer’s Troilus and Criseyde, Winthrop Wetherbee redefines the nature of Chaucer’s poetic vision. Using as a starting point Chaucer’s profound admiration for the achievement of Dante and the classical poets, Wetherbee sees the Troilus as much more than a courtly treatment of an event in ancient history—it is, he asserts, a major statement about the poetic tradition from which it emerges. Wetherbee demonstrates the evolution of the poet-narrator of the Troilus, who begins as a poet of romance, bound by the characters’ limited worldview, but who in the end becomes a poet capable of realizing the tragic and ultimately the spiritual implications of his story....

Sons of God Daughters of Men

by Edward Malkowski

Sons of God – Daughters of Men is a history book written for a general audience. It inherits it’s title from the peculiar introduction to the story of Noah’s flood, in the 6th chapter of the biblical Genesis, where the "sons of God" saw that the daughters of men were beautiful and took them as wives. There, they are described as "heroes of old" and "men of renown", supposedly at a time when mankind was just created, eight generations before Noah.
This rather eerie reference to seemingly divine men has been, for myself, a continuous source of curiosity. If they were so famous, why then are there no other writings of their acts and deeds? And why were their offspring and descendents referred to as giants? Never having obtained a plausible answer from anyone, I contend that someth...
