Book Description :

Dura-Europos, on the Syrian Euphrates, is one of the best preserved and most extensively excavated sites of the Roman world. A Hellenistic foundation later held by the Parthians and then the Romans, Dura had a Roman military garrison installed within its city walls before it was taken by the Sasanians in the mid-third century. The Inner Lives of Ancient Houses is the first study to consider the houses of the site as a whole. The houses were excavated by a team from Yale and the French Academy of Inscriptions and Letters in the 1920s and 30s, and though a wealth of archaeological and textual material was recovered, most of that relating to housing was never published. Through a combination of archival information held at the Yale University Art Gallery and new fieldwork with the Mission Franco-Syrienne d'Europos-Doura, this study re-evaluates the houses of the site, integrating architecture, artefacts, and textual evidence, and examining ancient daily life and cultural interaction, as well as considering houses which were modified for use by the Roman military.

Book Description :

The ancient world comes to life in the first volume in a two book series on the history of Egypt, spanning the first farmers to the construction of the pyramids. Famed archaeologist John Romer draws on a lifetime of research to tell one history's greatest stories; how, over more than a thousand years, a society of farmers created a rich, vivid world where one of the most astounding of all human-made landmarks, the Great Pyramid, was built. Immersing the reader in the Egypt of the past, Romer examines and challenges the long-held theories about what archaeological finds mean and what stories they tell about how the Egyptians lived. More than just an account of one of the most fascinating periods of history, this engrossing book asks readers to take a step back and question what they've learned about Egypt in the past. Fans of Stacy Schiff's Cleopatra and history buffs will be captivated by this re-telling of Egyptian history, written by one of the top Egyptologists in the world.

Book Description :

Examining a wide range of archaeological data, and using it to explore issues such as the sexual body, mind/body dualism, body modification, and magical practices, Lynn Meskell and Rosemary Joyce offer a new approach to the Ancient Egyptian and Mayan understanding of embodiment. Drawing on insights from feminist theory, art history, phenomenology, anthropology and psychoanalysis, the book takes bodily materiality as a crucial starting point to the understanding and formation of self in any society, and sheds new light on Ancient Egyptian and Maya cultures. The book shows how a comparative project can open up new lines of inquiry by raising questions about accepted assumptions as the authors draw attention to the long-term histories and specificities of embodiment, and make the case for the importance of ancient materials for contemporary theorization of the body. For students new to the subject, and scholars already familiar with it, this will offer fresh and exciting insights into these ancient cultures.

Book Description :

This absorbing book approaches the perennially fascinating history of ancient Egypt in a highly original way. Egyptologist John Ray has chosen twelve lives drawn from across the three millennia of that civilization to illuminate it. Some are famous: Imhotep, Egypt's Leonardo, royal architect (of the Step Pyramid), inventor of stone building and seer; Hatshepsut, the female Pharaoh, Egypt's Gloriana; Horemheb, self-made politician and general and finally king, who cleaned up the mess after Akhenaten and Tutankhamun; the legendary magician Pharaoh - Nectanebo II, the greatest builder of temples. The lives of others much less famous have been preserved thanks to the desert: Heqanakhte, a cantankerous peasant farmer who has problems with his sons - and they with their stepmother; Prince Khaemwise, son of the megalomaniac Rameses II, High Priest of Ptah and restorer of ancient monuments - the first Egyptologist; Petiese, a scribe whose petition to the authorities preserves a feud stretching back over generations that has poisoned the temple-based economy of a small town. Most fascinating of all perhaps are the people of the Serapeum: a Greek recluse, his brother, rootless adolescent and police informer, two temple dancers with financial difficulties, and a temple scribe, whom we can briefly come to know intimately, even their dreams. Last is the god Osiris, judge of the netherworld, creator of the land of Egypt, before whom all the above believed they would appear at the end of their lives.

During the course of a day we meet 24 Athenians from all strata of society--from the slave to the politician, the fishmonger to the philosopher, the soldier to the vase painter--and get to know what the real Athens was like by spending an hour in their company. We encounter a different one of these characters--all from different walks of life--every chapter, with each chapter forming an hour in a day in the life of the ancient city. We also get to spy on the daily doings of notable Athenians through the eyes of regular people as the city hovers on the brink of the fateful war that will destroy its golden age.
