Now you've done it...you awoke the wrath of Pharaoh Chris...a sacrifice may be needed to appease him.

By the way...does anyone have any good info on the Kingdom of Kush? ...In some ways, they seem even more mysterious than the Egyptians.

Oh, great and glorious moderator

I humbly beg to atone for my suggestion that the "Regards from..." thread ever varies from its straight and noble path!



Ignore the lil' fellow below -- I have no idea where he came from...

Chris- nope...Southern part of the Nile, near Sudan...also known as Nubia. I've not read much about the culture but I remember it from art history class! link

CJ - That sort of mockery will not get you a pyramid!

I think you might find more info looking for 'Nubians' on the net.

I can only quote Lord Byron.......


The mind can make substance
and people planets of its own
With beings brighter then have been
and give a breath to forms which can outlive all flesh!!

Fordham University Nubia/Kush links

Univ. of Chicago

...and the mesoamerican mysteries and art of the Olmec, Mayan...Olmec

Olmecs and pre-Columbian people and their art have always fascinated me -- probably because their location is so much closer -- I just remembered that I would like to see the Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City before I get too old -- anyone here traveled there or to some of the ruins?

http://studentweb.tulane.edu/~dhixson/
Arizona State University
Canada's Civilizations website - Maya and Egypt

http://www.civilization.ca//civil/egypt/egypt_e.html
Hmmm, looking at all of these links makes me realize that I have forgotten almost all of what I learned (and there's probably been lots of new discoveries to boot), so perhaps I've got some reading to do...

CJ
The friends who visited us last evening just returned from a trip to New Mexico where they explored some cliff dwellings which had been inhabited by a group called the Anazi. The pictures of their dwellings which were in caves carved out of almost sheer vertical cliffs were astonishing.Also they had these ceremonial caves called kivas. I have not been to NM but I would like to go. A few years ago we were in Phoenix and visited a wonderful museum named - named I belive " Heard ". We tried to get up to Sedona but didn't make it. For some odd reason I had a problem with the altitude as were were driving there and had to turn back. I do regret missing it.

I've been to several of the major ruin sites on the Yucatan-way back in the mid 70's just when Cancun opened up. That was when there was nothing there except the ruins. It was extraordinary what they carved out of the jungle.

Have not been to Mexico City. My all time dream place to go to would be Tibet but I don't think it will ever be a possibility for me.

CJ

That quote from Byron was beautiful. I must reread him. For me what it said was that you create your own reality.

Paulette, I know you meant to write "Chris" instead of "CJ" regarding the Byron quote -- and I want to make sure that Chris, our beloved moderator, gets all the credit he's due ( -- NOT mocking, just very sincere.... and fearful of the moderator's ability to move/rename a thread -- which could leave us in a very weird place).

Chris, do you really quote Lord Byron without having to look it up? Even if you look it up, I am truly impressed. You frequently have an apt quote from someone I've read only in school

Paulette, the Heard Museum is a wonderful little museum, isn't it! They may still have former Senator Goldwater's Hopi Kachina doll collection on display. I've been to some of the cliff dwellings here in Arizona, but not the New Mexico ones. You've visited there and the Yucatan Peninsula -- wonderful! I need to make up a timetable for me to visit there also. Tibet would be wonderful, but I know I'm not going up that high in the mountains -- I hope you surprise yourself and figure out a way to get there.
