The Fertile Crescent, which stretched from the Nile Valley to the twin rivers in Mesopotamia, gave us our earliest glimpse of organized man. But organized how? For one, both locations gave us writing—hieroglyphics in Egypt and cuneiform in Sumer. There is still some debate about who was first.In this book, we will start by looking at the gods and goddesses of Kemet—Ancient Egypt. Then, we will turn our attention to the monsters which likely gave them nightmares and humbled them in their quest to bring order to the world around them.Finally, we will look at the mortals which shaped their civilization and made Egypt the bedrock of our own history. Though Egypt today is only a third-world nation, struggling with terrorism and poverty, their heritage remains vital to the understanding of who we are as a species.Just some of the topics covered in this book includeOsiris, Isis, Seth, and HorusThe Sun and CreationGods and HumansApep: Great Snake of ChaosSett: God of Desert, Storms, War, Evil, and ChaosImhotep, the 27th Century BC PolymathAkhenaten, the King Who Upended TraditionRamesses the GreatCleopatra, End of an Epoch...

    A Fascinating Guide to Understanding the Ancient Greek Religion with Its Gods, Goddesses, Monsters and MortalsThe ancient Greeks were explorers in many ways. They traveled to new places, creating colonies in strange lands far from their original homes. They were survivors. They were honorable thieves. They used their cunning to explore the frontiers of philosophy and they wrested from the chaos of the surrounding wilderness the building blocks of civilization.Though the Greeks were late to the game of writing, what they wrote became an important part of our world’s heritage.Greek heroes taught us many lessons, from Homer’s poetry about war and a warrior’s return home to the tales of Cadmus, Jason, Herakles and even Oedipus.The myths of Greek heroes give us a glimpse beyond the edge of history, into the lives of very real people. How much of their tales are true, we may never know. But this book will present their tales in a new light, hopefully making their experiences a bit more real and perhaps shining a light on what may have really happened behind the distortions of time and generations of misunderstanding.This book is broken into four parts.
