From a tiny fragment of the page of a Bible found in the grave of an Indian girl buried in the 17th century, it was possible to discover the particular edition of the Bible that it came from.
In the long run this is another nail in his coffin and a severe dent for Britain within the EU. People over the hill are past the 'rush hour' of life and can just relax and enjoy!.
Olsson went on to add that she was considering pressing her claim in court and secure the right to exhume the tomb. The rationale is that Renoir would probably spin wildly in his grave at the notion that a black and white photographic reproduction of one of his colored paintings was in any sense his responsibility. By the close of the 18th century, grave robbing was a common practice in Britain and the terms used describe these men included body snatchers and grave robbers.
In an especially fine chapter, he shows how debates on political economy linked moral battles over such seemingly disparate issues as slavery, feminism, and body-snatching. Hawass: Goodness, it will take thousands of years! How can you do a straightforward quest? You cannot demolish each and every building around the site, can you? For us to be able to excavate, we have to wait until the buildings age and people order a reconstruction.
It is going to be a project of a lifetime. There are millions of people in the area and relocating them is not an option. ETN: So what is there to do? For how many years? Hawass: We will have to wait for people to repair their homes. Thus, my answer is thousands of years. ETN: But if people renovate and call on you to assist, what can you do for them?
Will you compensate them for turning in their lot? Hawass: We will assign an inspector to watch the foundation. If we find something, we would stop work completely and start with the excavation operation. If we take the land, we will definitely pay the estate value. For instance, the open museum you see is just this size, for now, until we find more people willing to surrender their discoveries in their own backyard.
ETN: Is the excavation being shared with other foreign groups? Hawass: It is purely an Egyptian effort. We are sufficient with trained staff equipped with advanced excavation skills. We need the world to cooperate with us with the preservation of antiquities we discover. Foreign groups who come should restore treasures they find. In terms of funding, we are sufficient. ETN: Aside from the what-seems-to-be an infinite tomb city of el Matareya, what else is your department working on?
Infostat in old Cairo or civilization museum will contain artifacts from pre-history until the reign of Mohamed Ali. Royal mummieswill be its biggest attraction. The existing Cairo Museum will be converted to serve as the museum of the history of arts in the Pharaonic period. We will close the Islamic museum to open in May , as well as the Coptic Museum to open next year. We are building a museum in Sharm el Sheikh and Sohag and just recently opened a museum in Luxor with a sea of artifacts from the Army in the Golden Age.
We are also building specialized museums such as for mosaic in Alexandria, for portraits in Fayoum, and for coins in the Citadel. Bahariya will be in the works after I re-excavate the Golden Mummies next month. Most importantly, we are doing a site management program for sites to protect them from tourists.
For instance we surrounded the site of the pyramids with a km long wall to protect the GIZA Pyramids from many camel- and horse-riders. We are doing the same project at the unfinished obelisque in Aswan, where we found on the granite quarry evidence of cutting stones. We are also recording our monuments and changing our security system from guards with sticks to guards with knowhow. We teach Egyptian adults and children through formal schooling on how to care for our ancient inheritance.
Finally, we are busy welcoming the return of more than stolen pieces, one of which is a big styla from the 26th dynasty retrieved from the US just last few weeks. Every artifact that has been stolen will have to come home following the rules of the UNESCO convention of stipulating all, including museum overseas need comply. TV - your news source for the travel and tourism industry. The museum will be closed before visitors next month till the project comes to an end within 12 months.
The project includes renovation of showrooms, light system and showcases to prevent stealing of antiques. Dr Okasha El Daly of UCL's Institute of Archaeology will reveal that Arabic scholars not only took a keen interest in ancient Egypt but also correctly interpreted hieroglyphics in the ninth century AD - almost 1, yearsearlier than previously thought.
It has long been thought that Jean-Francois Champollion was the first person to crack hieroglyphics in using newly discovered Egyptian antiquities such as the Rosetta stone. But fresh analysis of manuscripts tucked away in long forgotten collections scattered across the globe prove that Arabic scholars got there first.
Dr Okasha El Daly, of UCL's Institute of Archaeology, explains: "For two and a half centuries the study of Egyptology has been dominated by a Euro-centric view, which has virtually ignored over a thousand years of Arabic scholarship and enquiry encouraged by Islam. It was assumed that the world of the pharaohs had long since been forgotten by Egyptians, who were thought to have been incorporated into the expanding Islamic world by the seventh century. In reality a huge corpus of medieval writing by both scholars and ordinary people exists that dates from long before the earliest European Renaissance.
Analysis reveals that not only did Moslems have a deep interest in the study of Ancient Egypt, they could also correctly decipher hieroglyphic script. While Western medieval commentators believed that hieroglyphics were symbols each representing a single concept Dr El Daly has shown that Arab scholars grasped the fundamental principle that hieroglyphics could represent sounds as well as ideas. Using his unique expertise in both Egyptology and medieval Arabic writers, Dr El Daly began a seven year investigation of Arabic writing on ancient Egypt.
Even when they were, they were often wrongly classified so I had to go through each one individually - it is not like researching in modern books with an index which you can check for relevant information," says Dr El Daly. Ibn Wahshiyah's work on ancient writing systems showed that he was able to correctly decipher many hieroglyphic signs.
Being an alchemist not a linguist, his primary interest was to identify the phonetic value and meaning of hieroglyphic signs with the aim of accessing the ancient Egyptian scientific knowledge inscribed in hieroglyphs. They valued history and assumed that Egypt was a land of science and wisdom and as such they wanted to learn their language to have access to such vast knowledge.
They were also keen on the universality of human history based on the unity of the origin of human beings and the diversity of their appearance and languages. Furthermore, there are likely to be many hidden manuscripts dotted round the world that could make a significant contribution to our understanding of the ancient world.
The Panopticon, which means 'all-visible' in Greek, will be unlike any other museum in the UK because the entire collection will be on display and publicly accessible. Other highlights will include works by Durer, Rembrandt, Turner and Constable; anunrivalled collection of John Flaxman's drawings and sculpture; the first edition of Milton's Paradise Lost and the George Orwell archives. The study, to be published next month in the Canadian Association of Radiologists Journal, reaches a diagnoses of diffuse skeletal idiopathic hyperostosis DISH.
Thought to be the second most common form of arthritis after osteoarthritis, the disease is mainly characterized by excessive bone growth along the sides of the spine's vertebrae. The finding challenges a previous diagnosis of ankylosing spondylitis A. S , a condition by which some or all of the joints and bones of the spine fuse together.
That would have meant that the pharaoh spent most of his life in pain, feeling feverish and experiencing night sweats. The third king of Egypt's 19th dynasty, Ramesses ruled for 67 years B. Known as a courageous warrior, he created an empire that stretched from present-day Lybia to Iraq in the east, to Turkey in the north and to Sudan in the south.
To reach their diagnosis, Chhem and colleagues read and interpreted both the published and unpublished radiographs of the mummy. Changes that were detected in the mummy's spine and pelvis were not consistent with the diagnosis of ankylosing spondylitis suggested about 30 years ago, said the researchers. This would fit more to Ramesses II lifestyle. Also, radiological evidence shows a spinal disease of an old man," Chhem said. Indeed, epigraphic data tell us that Ramesses II died very old. In a period when life expectancy was about 40, he is thought to have died at the venerable age of It could be interesting to use the new, non-invasive technologies on the mummy.
National Museums LiverpoolChemical analysis of animal mummies from the Liverpool Museum in England, such as this one of a cat, indicate that the Egyptians used great care in mummifying animals. Animal mummies were treated with the same exotic ingredients and care as human mummies, a new study shows. Millions of animal mummies decorate Egyptian tombs, some as beloved pets but most as sacrifices to the gods.
Scientists had thought that the animals would have been hastily mummified, perhaps dunked in resin and wrapped in rough bandages. A University of Bristol research team, led by biogeochemist Richard Evershed, has now shown otherwise. Chemical analysis of cat, hawk and ibis mummies from the Liverpool Museum uncovered hints of fats, oils, beeswax and other costly ingredients.
The mix resembles that used to treat humans from the same time period B. Animals were viewed not only as pets, but as incarnations of gods.
As such, the Egyptians buried millions of mummified cats, birds, and other creatures at temples honoring their deities. Because of the sheer scale of animal mummy production, many archaeologists thought the vast majority were churned out in relatively slipshod fashion. But a new study suggests the mummification techniques ancient Egyptians used on animals were often as elaborate as those they employed on the best-preserved human corpses. Researchers at the University of Bristol, England, conducted thestudy, which is described in tomorrow's issue of the science journal Nature.
The mummies are housed in the collection of the Liverpool Museum in Liverpool, England. Chemicals detected in tissue samples from the animal mummies revealed the presence of various natural products found in human embalming materials used by the ancient Egyptians. These included animal fats, oils, beeswax, sugar gum, bitumen, and pine tree resins. The researchers found these products had also been applied to the bandages used to wrap up the mummies. But he noted: "If you started to find the same range of different embalming agents on these mummies as you did on humans, then you'd say it looks like [the ancient Egyptians] were taking some care over this.
Therefore, it was important for embalmers to remove water along with a corpse's internal organs before mummification. Water is essential for bacteria, which can quickly rot a corpse. To dry out a body, the ancient Egyptians rubbed salt into the corpse. He says animal mummies represent a largely untapped resource for scientists and historians. He said the vast majority of these animals were mummified because of their link with ancient Egyptian gods.
For example, cats were seen as the incarnation of Bastet, goddess of music and joy and protector of women. The Apis bull, a sacred animal to the Egyptians, came to be known as the incarnation of Osiris, god of embalming and cemeteries. Likewise, ancient Egyptians associated hawks with Horus the god of light , ibises with Thoth the god of wisdom and learning , and so on.
However, Taylor agrees there is no doubt that some animals were preserved to an extremely high standard. It was certainly no less elaborate than the mummification of an important human," he said. Pets were also mummified and buried in tombs with their owners. Such pets weren't limited to dogs and cats but included baboons, monkeys, and gazelles.
As with other animals, the exact embalming procedures involved in pet mummification remains largely unknown. Evershed, the study coauthor, said, "The mummification process just isn't documented by the ancient Egyptians, which is why we are doing the chemical analysis. It was a secretive process. For instance, knowledge of the precise embalming agents used should shed new light on the extent of trade between Egypt and its neighbors.
Just like those famously bandaged Pharaohs, it seems the vast menagerie of animal mummies left behind by the ancient Egyptians have many more secrets wrapped within. For the moment, we can only marvel at the glimpses that its sculpture or its objects, many of them uncovered in recent excavations, allow us into a history as old as that of Egypt. In the early phases, one looks in vain for a continuous thread. Information relating to objects is so scanty and vague as to be meaningless. Two remarkable earthenware vessels pieced together from fragments dug up at Jabarona in the Wadi Howar area, west of the Nile, are thus given dates some time between the fourth and second millennium B.
We know nothing about the people who had that feeling for delicately burnished red surfaces and subtly translated into the potters' idiom patterns evidently derived from basketwork. Stupendously beautiful pottery was molded at Kerma. A small beaker with a burnished red lower part, irregular stripes of ashen gray half way up and a beautiful black sheen at the top ranks among the world masterpieces of ceramic art.
A slightly earlier piece, a red and black shallow bowl, calls for comparison with early Dynastic pottery from Egypt for its color scheme but remains entirely original. That the Egyptian role was important during the Old Kingdom to B. Dominique Valbelle writes in the exhibition book that the Nubian princes were brought to Memphis to receive an Egyptian education.
From that time on, the Egyptian connection would never be severed, even when the pendulum of political power abruptly swung.
JUEGO MISTERIOS DE EGIPTO
During the years B. A 16th-century B. The Hyksos ruler invited the Kushite ruler to strike an alliance against the Egyptian kingdom of Thebes. But the Egyptians won. The founder of the 18th dynasty, Ahmose B. The imprint of Egypt on Kush became indelible. Egyptian temples were erected and a school of Egyptian-style carving thrived.
Pablo y sus Viajes, – ¿Reales o Imaginarios? Misión Imposible
But Kushite individuality was not subsumed into Egyptian culture. The sculptors of Kush displayed a striking propensity for catching individual expressions and feelings underneath the stylized masks. The admirable "block statue" of the scribe Amenemhat with his knees drawn up before him looks Egyptian at first glance. Then, viewers become aware of the asymmetrical eyes, and the vicious glee that the smiling face conveys. The poignant mask of a woman from a cemetery at Sai exudes barely contained distress.
The Egyptians retreated from Kush in the s B. Yet the powerful aesthetic personality of Kushite artists continued to come through. But the astigmatic eyes and the sadness have no equivalent in the art of Egypt. The most Egyptian-looking mythical creatures were transformed at the hands of Kushite artists. The human face of the sphinx of King Senkamanisken, which was discovered in the Temple of Amun at Djabal Barkal, is a masterpiece of psychological portraiture. Grim despair emanates from the staring eyes.
Even the images of gods conceived by Kushite sculptors are profoundly human. With its dilated eyes under raised eyebrows, it expresses irrepressible terror. A smiling ruthlessness emanates from the sandstone head of a man from the second or third century A. Were the sadness, the fear, the ferocity, related to the darker side of Nubian culture?
Archaeology reveals that human sacrifices were part of its rituals as early as Neolithic times. According to Charles Bonnet, sacrifices associated with the great royal tumuli were in the hundreds during the last phase of the Kerma period.
