AHE's Osama goes on a detective journey of discovery in Iraqi Kurdistan to determine the real history of the Stela of Iddi-Sin, an important archaeological find. This research triggered a new dig and the change of a museum plaque.

The people who run the Ancient Warfare magazine have come up with a brilliant new idea for a magazine. One that focuses on ancient politics, society, religion and culture. But first they need to see the type of response this magazine would get. Please head to the website to fill out a short survey. http://ow.ly/HHfMh #Media #Magazine #AncientWarfare #AncientHistory #Culture #Entertainment #Society

Both Pythagoras and Plato of Greece were said to have been influenced by Egyptian beliefs in reincarnation and Roman religious culture borrowed as extensively from Egypt as it did from other civilizations.

Human existence was understood by the Egyptians as only a small segment of an eternal journey presided over and orchestrated by supernatural forces in the forms of the many deities which comprised the Egyptian pantheon.

Tiye was a queen of Egypt of the 18th dynasty, wife of the pharaoh Amenhotep III, mother of Akhenaten, and grandmother of both Tutankhamun and Ankhsenamun. She exerted an enormous influence at the courts of both her husband and son and is known to have communicated directly with rulers of foreign nations.

Whether it was a plebian or patrician, a consul’s powers remained the same: he presided over the Senate, proposed laws, and commanded the army. The position of consul was often the highpoint of a Roman politician’s career. After he left office, he remained a member of the Senate and would most often be rewarded for his service and named governor of one of the Roman provinces, a pro-consul. http://ow.ly/yvtnm

The Amorites of the Bible are depicted as pre-Israelite inhabitants of the land of Canaan and clearly separate from the Israelites. In the Book of Deuteronomy they are described as the last remnants of the giants who once lived on earth (3:11), and in the Book of Joshua they are the enemies of the Israelites who are destroyed by General Joshua (10:10, 11:8). If modern-day scholarship is accurate about the patriarchs of Israel descending from the Amorites, then there must have been some reason why the Hebrew scribes went to so much trouble to separate their own identity from that of the Amorites.
