Ancient Egypt
Ancient Egypt - An Illustrated Reference To The Myths, Religions, Pyramids and Temples Of The Land Of The Pharaohs - Lorna Oaks & Lucia Gahlin

The allure of ancient Egypt has endured over many centuries - and this comprehensive volume offers further intriguing insights. It examines, in authoritative detail, the main sites, temples and tombs and investigates how mythology and religion underpinned this civilisation.

The first section of the book looks at the tombs of ancient Egypt and devotes chapters to the most famous ancient burial sites: Giza, Saqqara and the Valley of the Kings, where the tomb of the boy-king Tutankhamun was discovered.

The second section of the book investigates the temples, from the impressive mortuary temples of the pharaohs, such as Ramesses II, to the temples of the many gods and goddesses of ancient Egypt.

The third section introduces us to the gods and goddesses, their characters and identifying features, the myths surrounding them, and their role in Creation. It then discusses the pharaoh as the human embodiment of a devine being and examines how the priests underpinned the devine order.

The last section looks at the religious beliefs and practices that accompanied the ancient Egyptians through life and death. Elaborate funerary rituals, offerings, festivals and superstitions reveal how far religion influenced and enriched the lives of ordinary people.

With maps, chronologies and colour artworks supplementing hundreds of full colour photographs, Ancient Egypt captures the essence of this fascinating epoch.


Ancient Egypt Myth & History
Ancient Egypt Myth & History - Geddes & Grosset

A comprehensive, illustrated account of the fascinating mythology and ancient history of one of the world's oldest - and longest surviving - civilisations. There was a culture in ancient Egypt that existed for over three millennia and produced monumental buildings that have stood the ravages of time. But it also produced what was, on the whole, a stable state, dependant on the River Nile, around which an elaborate religion developed. In Part One of Ancient Egypt Myth & History, the mythology of this religion is explained against its historical context while Part Two is a concise and informative A-Z of the dynasties, rulers, historic sites and archaeological objects of ancient Egypt, from the beginning of its civilisation to its overturn by the Romans.

The Tutankhamun Prophecies
The Tutankhamun Prophecies - The Sacred Secret of the Mayas, Egyptians and Freemasons - Maurice Cotterell

For more than 75 years, since the tomb of Tutankhamun was opened, 'experts' have attempted to explain the legacy of the enigmatic Pharaoh without success. Now, Maurice Cotterell - the man who broke the code of Mayan carving - sheds new light on the mysteries of ancient Egypt. How did he do it? He found a key, inside a pyramid in Mexico. Using this, he was able to decode the treasures from the tomb of the boy king and explain the true meaning of the sacred secrets buried more than 3,000 years ago on the banks of the Nile. His discoveries are as remarkable as they are sensational:

Akhenaten could not have been Tutankhamun's father
Tutankhamun's chamber could not have been robbed: the chaos in the antechamber was only part of the riddle
The leaders of the Maya - Lord Pacal - and the Egyptians - Tutankhamun - were one and the same
The book of Revelation in the Bible and the decoded treasures of Tutankhamun and Lord Pacal all tell the same story

This ancient knowledge is known and thrives today, concealed in sacred geometry and cherished by the Church, the highest orders of Freemasonry and other secret societies. For the first time ever, Maurice Cotterell reveals the explosive reasons for the secrecy - reasons which affect the future of each and every one of us.
