The forgotten Prince

by Monika Mangal

At the beginning of King Seti's third regnal year, the aspiring architect in the making Siamun sets out from his hometown Iunu in order to join the royal architects. In doing so, he hopes to make the most of his exceptional talent and the knowledge he has acquired during his studies in the temple of Ra. While Siamun pretends to be the son of a lesser architect, he anxiously guards the secret of his true parentage which must never be unravelled.Sooner than expected, his dream of working on one of the ambitious royal building projects comes true. Quite by chance, the king's attention is drawn to the gifted young man. Intrigued by his brilliant ideas, Seti subsequently entrusts him with the construction of his two dearest monuments, oblivious of the potential threat Siamun poses to him.However, Siamun's sudden rise is not without its downsides. Powerful individuals who envy his extraordinary success leave no stone unturned to ensure his fall from grace. Soon, devious scheming and even plots of murder follow his every step.Despite all this, Siamun carries on carving pharaoh's grand visions into stone without wavering - until the day he discovers the unspeakable outrage hidden, of all places, inside the very temple he has been building with so much devotion. From then on, nothing is as it used to be, and Siamun faces a hard decision. Inexorably, dramatic events begin to unfold...

History of the Later Roman Empire

by J.b. Bury

THE first of these two volumes might be entitled the “German Conquest of Western Europe,” and the second the “Age of Justinian.” The first covers more than one hundred and twenty years, the second somewhat less than fifty. This disparity is a striking illustration of the fact that perspective and proportion are unavoidably lost in an attempt to tell the story of any considerable period of ancient or early medieval history as fully as our sources allow. Perspective can be preserved only in an outline. The fifth century was one of the most critical periods in the history of Europe. It was crammed with events of great moment, and the changes which it witnessed transformed Europe more radically than any set of political events that have happened since. At that time hundreds of people were writing abundantly on all kinds of subjects, and many of their writings have survived; but among these there is no history of contemporary events, and the story has had to be pieced together from fragments, jejune chronicles, incidental references in poets, rhetoricians, and theologians. Inscribed stones which supply so much information for the first four centuries of the Roman Empire are rare. Nowhere, since the time of Alexander the Great, do we feel so strongly that the meagreness of the sources flouts the magnitude of the events.             Although we know little of the details of the process by which the western provinces of the Empire became German kingdoms, one fact stands out. The change of masters was not the result of anything that could be called a cataclysm. The German peoples, who were much fewer in numbers than is often imagined, at first settled in the provinces as dependents, and a change which meant virtually conquest was disguised for a shorter or longer time by their recognition of the nominal rights of the Emperor. Britain, of which we know less than of any other part of the Empire at this period, seems to have been the only exception to this rule. The consequence was that the immense revolution was accomplished with far less violence and upheaval than might have been expected. This is the leading fact which it is the chief duty of the historian to make clear.

History of Ancient Babylon

by George Rawlinson

Babylon, the capital of the Fourth Monarchy, was probably the largest and most magnificent city of the ancient world. A dim tradition current in the East gave, it is true, a greater extent, if not a greater splendor, to the metropolis of Assyria; but this tradition first appears in ages subsequent to the complete destruction of the more northern city; and it is contradicted by the testimony of facts. The walls of Nineveh have been completely traced, and indicate a city three miles in length, by less than a mile and a half in breadth, containing an area of about 1800 English acres. Of this area less than one tenth is occupied by ruins of any pretension. On the admitted site of Babylon striking masses of ruin cover a space considerably larger than that which at Nineveh constitutes the whole area of the town. Beyond this space in every direction, north, east, south and west, are detached mounds indicating the former existence of edifices of some size, while the intermediate ground between these mounds and the main ruins shows distinct traces of its having been built upon in former days...

The Ghost of Rome: Volume I - The Gothic Wars

by Virgil Cain

It was famously stated by the English philosopher Thomas Hobbes that “the Papacy is not other than the ghost of the deceased Roman Empire, sitting crowned upon the grave thereof”.“The Ghost of Rome” explores that concept in detail, utilizing a character-driven narrative to bring life to the final years of the greatest empire the world has ever known. It is the rare work of fiction that informs even as it entertains, illuminating an era that is often derided as the decline of an empire rather than the birth of a kingdom.As Rome fell into disrepair, the Kingdom of Christ emerged. It was a transition so seamless that one can only be intrigued by the machinations that allowed the improbable rise of Christianity from a lone hilltop in Judea to conquer the Roman world inside of 350 years. It is a series as ambitious in its aim as it is broad in its scope. It puts you in the shoes of those who lived it, bringing life to many of Roman History’s most overlooked contributors while offering the reader a front row view of the rise of the barbarian, the fall of Rome, and the emergence of Christianity as a legitimate superpower.

Rivals in Blood

by David Galvin

The far off war horns of roman legions marching to battle won’t be heard from the Villa Juliana, but their coming together will have its repercussions as Britannia’s army is usurped by the rebel Magnentius and unless a ruling compromise is agreed with the legitimate emperor Constantius, citizen soldier will again face up to citizen soldier. None is forthcoming.Therefore, from the mosaic splendour of rural pagan life, the Briton Salvius Castus is unwittingly drawn into this struggle against his will. Fighting far from home and uncertain that he will ever return, what is to be left of his father in law’s promises for him? Will the cautious and politically sensitive Flavius Martinus rise up against the new order or will he too succumb? What of Salvius? What is he set to lose?

The History of Ancient Rome: Book I: The Period Anterior to the Abolition of the Monarchy

by Theodor Mommsen

The Mediterranean Sea with its various branches, penetrating far into the great Continent, forms the largest gulf of the ocean, and, alternately narrowed by islands or projections of the land and expanding to considerable breadth, at once separates and connects the three divisions of the Old World. The shores of this inland sea were in ancient times peopled by various nations belonging in an ethnographical and philological point of view to different races, but constituting in their historical aspect one whole. This historic whole has been usually, but not very appropriately, entitled the history of the ancient world. It is in reality the history of civilization among the Mediterranean nations; and, as it passes before us in its successive stages, it presents four great phases of development—the history of the Coptic or Egyptian stock dwelling on the southern shore, the history of the Aramaean or Syrian nation which occupied the east coast and extended into the interior of Asia as far as the Euphrates and Tigris, and the histories of the twin-peoples, the Hellenes and Italians, who received as their heritage the countries on the European shore. Each of these histories was in its earlier stages connected with other regions and with other cycles of historical evolution; but each soon entered on its own distinctive career. The surrounding nations of alien or even of kindred extraction—the Berbers and Negroes of Africa, the Arabs, Persians, and Indians of Asia, the Celts and Germans of Europe—came into manifold contact with the peoples inhabiting the borders of the Mediterranean, but they neither imparted unto them nor received from them any influences exercising decisive effect on their respective destinies. So far, therefore, as cycles of culture admit of demarcation at all, the cycle which has its culminating points denoted by the names Thebes, Carthage, Athens, and Rome, may be regarded as an unity. The four nations represented by these names, after each of them had attained in a path of its own a peculiar and noble civilization, mingled with one another in the most varied relations of reciprocal intercourse, and skilfully elaborated and richly developed all the elements of human nature. At length their cycle was accomplished. New peoples who hitherto had only laved the territories of the states of the Mediterranean, as waves lave the beach, overflowed both its shores, severed the history of its south coast from that of the north, and transferred the centre of civilization from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic Ocean. The distinction between ancient and modern history, therefore, is no mere accident, nor yet a mere matter of chronological convenience. What is called modern history is in reality the formation of a new cycle of culture, connected in several stages of its development with the perishing or perished civilization of the Mediterranean states, as this was connected with the primitive civilization of the Indo-Germanic stock, but destined, like the earlier cycle, to traverse an orbit of its own. It too is destined to experience in full measure the vicissitudes of national weal and woe, the periods of growth, of maturity, and of age, the blessedness of creative effort in religion, polity, and art, the comfort of enjoying the material and intellectual acquisitions which it has won, perhaps also, some day, the decay of productive power in the satiety of contentment with the goal attained. And yet this goal will only be temporary: the grandest system of civilization has its orbit, and may complete its course but not so the human race, to which, just when it seems to have reached its goal, the old task is ever set anew with a wider range and with a deeper meaning...

Mythology: Norse Mythology, Greek Gods, Greek Mythology, Egyptian Gods, Ancient Egypt

by Patrick Auerbach

Mythology can refer to the collected myths of a group of people—their collection of stories they tell to explain nature, history, and customs—or to the study of such myths.As a collection of explanatory stories, mythology is a vital feature of every culture. Many sources for myths have been proposed, ranging from personification of nature or personification of natural phenomena, to truthful or hyperbolic accounts of historical events to explanations of existing rituals. This book covers:Norse MythologyIn this book you will find information, about Norse Mythology. Norse mythology, or Scandinavian mythology, is the body of mythology of the North Germanic people stemming from Norse paganism and continuing after the Christianization of Scandinavia and into the Scandinavian folklore of the modern period.Most of the knowledge used to create this book, is from the Icelandic historian and poet, Snorri Sturluson, who has written The Prose Edda around the year 1200.The Norse gods and goddesses were loved by the Vikings. The Vikings came mainly from Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Faroe Island, and Greenland.Greek GodsThe ancient Greeks believed there were a great number of gods and goddesses. These gods had control over many different aspects of life on earth. In many ways they were very human. They could be kind or mean, angry or pleasant, cruel or loving. They fell in love with each other, argued with each other and even stole from each other. The ancient Greeks built great temples and sanctuaries to their gods. They held festivals in their honour, with processions, sports, sacrifices and competitions. Stories of the gods' exploits were told to children by their mothers and to large audiences by professional bards and storytellers. People today still enjoy hearing stories about the Greek gods.This book tells the tales of gods and goddesses such as Zeus, Aphrodite, Apollo, and Athena and heroes and monsters such as Helen of Troy, Perseus, and Medusa will fascinate and engage your imagination.Greek MythologyGreek Mythology is the body of myths and teachings that belong to the ancient Greeks, concerning their gods and heroes, the nature of the world, and the origins and significance of their own cult and ritual practices. It was a part of the religion in ancient Greece. The Greeks were polytheistic in their religious beliefs. Polytheistic means they believed in and worshiped many different gods. Modern scholars refer to and study the myths in an attempt to shed light on the religious and political institutions of Ancient Greece and its civilization, and to gain understanding of the nature of myth-making itself.Egyptian GodsWorshiped for over three-fifths of recorded history, ancient Egypt's Gods and Goddesses are among the most fascinating of human civilization.. The lives of pharaohs and commoners alike were dominated by the need to honor, worship, and pacify the huge pantheon of deities. From lavish tomb paintings and imposing temple reliefs to humble household shrines, countless tributes throughout Egypt reflect the richness and complexity of their mythology. Ancient EgyptAncient Egypt's impact on later cultures was immense. You could say that Egypt provided the building blocks for Greek and Roman culture, and, through them, influenced all of the Western tradition. Today, Egyptian imagery, concepts, and perspectives are found everywhere; you will find them in architectural forms, on money, and in our day to day lives. Many cosmetic surgeons, for example, use the silhouette of Queen Nefertiti (whose name means “the beautiful one has come”) in their advertisements.Scroll to the top of the page and click Add To Cart to read more about this extraordinary chapters of history.
