The ancient Egyptian world by Eric H Cline( Book )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taking readers back 4,000 years, to the fertile land around the Nile River, The Ancient Egyptian World tells the stories of the kings, queens, pharaohs, gods, tomb builders, and ordinary citizens who lived there. Using papyri, scarabs, tomb inscriptions, mummies, and a rich variety of other primary sources, Eric H. Cline and Jill Rubalcaba uncover the fascinating history of ancient Egypt. Scarabs, which scholars call "imperial news bulletins," record important moments in a pharaoh's reign. The Edwin Smith Papyrus details the injuries sustained by the builders of the great pyramids, and the remedies used to treat them. For a worker who has had a stone fall on his head, it suggests: "bind it with fresh meat and treat afterward with grease, honey and lint." A complex recipe for a top-of-the-line mummy describes a process that could take 70 days and involved drawing the brain out through the nose with a crooked piece of iron. These primary sources also tell the stories of the people of ancient Egypt: Pepi II, the six-year-old boy king who commanded armies; Ramesses II, whose mortuary temple boasts of his expertise in battle against the Hittites; Queen Hatshepsut, the only woman to rule Egypt as pharaoh; and Cleopatra, who courted Roman statesman Mark Antony as part of her quest to extend the Egyptian empire. The Ancient Egyptian World honors the history of a civilization whose monuments and tombs still capture the imagination of the world thousands of years later
The early human world by Peter Robertshaw( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Robertshaw and Jill Rubalcaba tell the story of early human life using an incredible variety of primary sources: 3.5-million-year-old footprints preserved by a nearby volcano provide evidence of our walking on two legs. A recently discovered cave in France hiding 32,000-year-old drawings reveal our ancestors' artistic side. A grave dug for a dog 8,500 years ago proves the extraordinarily long history of man's best friend. The Early Human World explores not just how we came to be the homo sapiens we are today, but also what life may have been like 300,000 generations ago. Glimpse the world of the earliest Australians, who encountered freakishly gigantic beasts: kangaroos as big as houses, tortoises the size of cars, and snakes twenty-five feet long. Imagine a time when the Sahara Desert was a fertile land, full of farms and herds of prehistoric cattle. The Early Human World brings to life stories from millions of years ago through the adventures of the archaeologists and their remarkable discoveries. The World in Ancient Times dusts off ancient artifacts and texts and assembles them anew as pieces of the never-ending puzzle we call ancient history. Readers become part of the process of historical investigation as they explore these primary sources, learning not just what we know but how we know it. Accomplished historical novelists collaborate with leading historians and archaeologists to weave the most up-to-date scholarship into stories that are vivid, suspenseful, and fun
