Michael C. Carlos Museum: Permanent Collection: Ancient Egyptian Art The collection of Ancient Egyptian and Nubian antiquities at the Michael C. Carlos Museum covers the full spectrum of Nile Valley civilization, from the earliest Prehistoric times, to the period of Roman domination. At the core of the collection are the artifacts acquired by Emory professor William Shelton, who traveled to Egypt in 1920. The collection has experienced tremendous growth, beginning in 1999 with the purchase of Egyptian antiquities from a small, private museum in Niagara Falls, Canada. The objects from the Niagara Falls Museum had been purchased in Egypt during the early 1860s, and include ten mummies, nine coffins, and a variety of other artifacts. The Niagara collection consists primarily of funerary material from the 21st Dynasty (ca. 1070–946 BC) to the Roman Period (ca. 31 BC–395 AD), a time of great achievement in the funerary arts. Included in the 1999 purchase was a previously unidentified male mummy.
L'Egypte - Le blog de l'Ancien Empire Samedi 14 août 2010 6 14 /08 /Août /2010 00:14 L'Egypte est un pays à 70% désertique traversé pratiquement du Nord au Sud par le Nil, bordé à l'Ouest par le désert Libyen et à l'Est par le désert du Sinaï. La bande étroite formée par le fleuve est la seule partie cultivable de l'Egypte. Sur ces rives était, pour les anciens, la terre des vivants et au delà, était la terre des morts sur la rive Ouest. Du Nord au Sud, on compte plus de 90 pyramides réparties sur plusieurs sites, qui sont les tombes des souverains des ancien et moyen empires. Les sites principaux de pyramides sont : Abou Rawash, Guizeh, Abousir, Saqqarah, Dashour, Meïdoum, Licht et dans le Fayoum. Plus au Sud, on trouvera des temples dédiés aux dieux et d’autres dédiés aux pharaons morts. Karnak et Louxor dans l’antique Thèbes, Abou Simbel, Philaë , Ednou et bien d’autres. L'histoire de cette civilisation aura aussi une part très importante. Je vous remercie de votre visite. Références : Les cahiers de sciences et vie.
Cross Staff and Plumbline and the Great Pyramid Revealing the discovery of a geometrical, spherical measuring instrument in the Pyramid of Khufu By Crichton E M Miller This advanced protractor, similar to the cross and plumb line, is an advanced mathematical device, capable of astronomy, navigation and surveying. It is proposed, that the ancient Egyptian architects and astronomers used this hybrid Celtic cross, for the purposes of stellar alignment and timekeeping. The proposal and thesis is based upon the discoveries and calculations of the author, whilst working on the proposal that the Celtic cross was an instrument derived from the astrolabe and quadrant. How did the ancient architects survey and lay out the constructions? It is known that the ancient Egyptians used plumb line technology in several different areas, particularly in weights and measures. Degrees are broken down into minutes and seconds of arc. 1. 2.

Tour Egypt Monthly: Queens of Egypt, part III - Celopatra The Ptolemic Period recalls several queens in Egypt named Cleopatra; the most famous and influential in history was the seventh.
