Upon hearing that there is to be a book about discovery and exploration in the ancient world, many people
express some surprise: “Were there explorers in the ancient world?” “What did they discover?”
Such doubts are understandable because there are so many preconceptions and misconceptions about the nature of discovery and exploration.

(BQ) Ebook Ancient Greeks - Creating the classical tradition chronicles the lives and accomplishments of Greek figures whose influence continues to be felt today. We read about Greeks from all walks of life, including one of the greatest physicians who ever lived, the father of logic, and a brilliant mathematician who once said, "Give me a lever long enough, and a fulcrum strong enough, and I will single-handedly move the world". And move the world he did, but with his ideas, not a mighty fulcrum.

Tho' The Chronology of Ancient Kingdoms amended, was writ by the Author many years since; yet he lately
revis'd it, and was actually preparing it for the Press at the time of his death. But The Short Chronicle was
never intended to be made public, and therefore was not so lately corrected by him. To this the Reader must
impute it, if he shall find any places where the Short Chronicle does not accurately agree with the Dates
assigned in the larger Piece. The Sixth Chapter was not copied out with the other Five, which makes it
doubtful whether he intended to print it: but...
It is more difficult to justify the restriction which will be imposed in the following chapters on the word
Ancient. This term is used even more vaguely and variously than the other. If generally it connotes the
converse of "Modern," in some connections and particularly in the study of history the Modern is not usually
understood to begin where the Ancient ended but to stand only for the comparatively Recent.
No one who is interested in the growth of human ideas or the origins of human society can afford to neglect
Maine's Ancient Law. Published some fifty-six years ago it immediately took rank as a classic, and its
epoch-making influence may not unfitly be compared to that exercised by Darwin's Origin of Species. The
revolution effected by the latter in the study of biology was hardly more remarkable than that effected by
Maine's brilliant treatise in the study of early institutions.
We propose a computational model of text reuse tailored for ancient literary texts, available to us often only in small and noisy samples. The model takes into account source alternation patterns, so as to be able to align even sentences with low surface similarity. We demonstrate its ability to characterize text reuse in the Greek New Testament.
The Metropolitan Museum takes delight in providing educational programs for the general public and especially for teachers and their students. We are pleased to offer this comprehensive resource, which contains texts, posters, slides, and other materials about outstanding works of Egyptian art from the MuseumÕs collection.

The ancient Egyptians were an intelligent, social, active, and
peaceful people. Despite the many hardships that challenged their re-
markable civilization, they maintained their pride, optimism and love
of life. Their priorities were centered on their gods, their families and

This book is more about ancient history and the origins of religion than marijuana. It even touches on the philosophy of conciousness and linguistics. It reads like an extensive research paper or thesis (with footnotes on every page and an impressive bibliography). It took me a whole year to get through it all! Green Gold The Tree of Life: Marijuana in Magic and Religion quotes respected historians such as Mircea Eliade and famous authors such as Terrance McKenna. It has inspired me to read more into the history of religion. It is a very valueable resource for anyone interested in...
Ancient philosophy, the basis of Western thought and science, evolved in the course of
almost one thousand years. In the sixth century BC that process was begun in which we
still find ourselves: the attempt at a rational explanation of the world and of man’s place in
An attempt has been made in these pages to trace the evolution of intellectual thought in the progress of astronomical discovery, and, by recognising the different points of view of the different ages, to give due credit even to the ancients. No one can expect, in a history of astronomy of limited size, to find a treatise on “practical” or on “theoretical astronomy,” nor a complete “descriptive astronomy,” and still less a book on “speculative astronomy.
For more than a millennium, the ancient Olympics captured the imaginations of the Greeks, until a Christianized Rome terminated the competitions in the fourth century AD. But the Olympic ideal did not die and this book is a succinct history of the ancient Olympics and their modern resurgence.Classics professor David Young, who has researched the subject for over 25 years, reveals how the ancient Olympics evolved from modest beginnings into a grand festival, attracting hundreds of highly trained athletes, tens of thousands of spectators, and the finest artists and poets.....
In the temple of the goddess Isis on the island of Philae, a few miles to
the south of the city of Aswan, one wall bears a brief hieroglyphic
inscription. Its significance is not in its content or meaning but purely
its date – it was written on 24 August ad 394, and as far as we know it
was the last time that the hieroglyphic script was used. The language of
ancient Egypt survived considerably longer (Philae temple also contains
the last graffiti in the more cursive ‘demotic’ script, dating to 2
December ad 452), and in a sense it still exists in fossilized form in...
About Plato: Plato (Greek: Plátōn, "wide, broad-shouldered") (428/427 BC – 348/ 347 BC) was an ancient Greek philosopher, the second of the great trio of ancient Greeks –Socrates, Plato, originally named Aristocles, and Aristotle– who between them laid the philosophical foundations of Western culture. Plato was also a mathematician, writer of philosophical dialogues, and founder of the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in the western world.
