Ancient Egyptian spells deciphered
Posted by: martin on Friday, November 21, 2014 - 03:26 PM
Literature - books magazines & pamphlets For centuries, the ancient Egyptians used spells to banish evil spirits, find success in love and work and gain power. And now a collection of these spells and invocations, dating back 1,300 years, have been deciphered for the first time from an ancient handbook. Written in the now extinct language, Coptic, the codex contains a mixture of references from Orthodox Christianity and Sethianism. The 20-page book of spells is written in Coptic language. It dates to the 7th century and contains a mixture of Orthodox Christian and Sethian invocations and spells, which are typically used to invoke a deity and spirit. The translations were made by Macquarie University professors Malcolm Choat and Iain Gardner. There are references made to Jesus, but also an entry called ‘Seth, the living Christ.’ Sethians were a Christian Gnostic sect who were found throughout the Mediterranean at the time the codex was written. They are said to have idolised Seth, the third son of Adam and Eve...

Was China's Terracotta army modelled on real soldiers?
Posted by: martin on Wednesday, November 19, 2014 - 03:39 PM
Archaeology A team of archaeologists from University College London (UCL) worked with experts from Emperor Qin Shi Huang's Mausoleum Site Museum in Lintong, China, to reveal the ancient design process behind the soldiers. They measured the statues’ facial features focusing on the ears, because they come in so many different shapes that they can be used to identify individuals. Experts measured the statues’ ears, because they come in so many different shapes that they can be used to identify individuals. Experts measured the statues’ ears, because they come in so many different shapes that they can be used to identify individuals. The experts reasoned, that if the warriors depict real people, each statue should have different shaped ears. Because the statues are packed so closely together in the burial pit, they scanned the ears and made 3D reconstructions to examine them without risking damaging the ancient originals. Working from a sample of 30 models, they discovered that no two ears were precisely the same and the amount of variation resembled a real human population. ‘Based on this initial sample, the terracotta army looks like a series of portraits of real warriors,’ said UCL archaeologist Marcos Martinón-Torres. The team will now study a much larger sample of the warriors and other facial features to see if they really do seem to represent individuals...

Nazca Lines of Kazakhstan
Posted by: martin on Tuesday, November 04, 2014 - 12:58 PM
Sacred Sites More than 50 geoglyphs with various shapes and sizes, including a massive swastika, have been discovered across northern Kazakhstan in Central Asia, say archaeologists. These sprawling structures, mostly earthen mounds, create the type of landscape art most famously seen in the Nazca region of Peru. Discovered using Google Earth, the geoglyphs are designed in a variety of geometric shapes, including squares, rings, crosses and swastikas (the swastika is a design that was used in ancient times). Ranging from 90 to 400 meters (295 to 1,312 feet) in diameter, some of them are longer than a modern-day aircraft carrier. Researchers say that the geoglyphs are difficult to see on the ground, but can easily be seen from the sky. Over the past year, an archaeological expedition from Kazakhstan's Kostanay University, working in collaboration with Vilnius University in Lithuania, has been examining the geoglyphs. The team, which is conducting archaeological excavations, ground-penetrating radar surveys, aerial photography and dating, recently presented its initial results at the European Association of Archaeologists' annual meeting in Istanbul. Many of the geoglyphs were made of earthen mounds, although one example, a swastika, was made using timber. Archaeological excavations uncovered the remains of structures and hearths at the geoglyphs, suggesting that rituals took place there, said archaeologists Irina Shevnina and Andrew Logvin, of Kostanay University, in an email to Live Science. Ancient tribes may also have used the geoglyphs to mark ownership of the land, the researchers noted. "As of today, we can say only one thing — the geoglyphs were built by ancient people. By whom and for what purpose, remains a mystery," said Shevnina and Logvin...

Ancient Stone Circles of the Middle East
Posted by: martin on Tuesday, November 04, 2014 - 12:52 PM
Sacred Sites Huge stone circles in the Middle East have been imaged from above, revealing details of structures that have been shrouded in mystery for decades. Archaeologists in Jordan have taken high-resolution aerial images of 11 ancient "Big Circles," all but one of which are around 400 meters (1,312 feet) in diameter. Why they are so similar is unknown but the similarity seems “too close to be a coincidence" said researcher David Kennedy. The Big Circles (as archaeologists call them) were built with low stone walls that are no more than a few feet high. The circles originally contained no openings, and people would have had to hop over the walls in order to get inside. Their purpose is unknown, and archaeologists are unsure when these structures were built. Analysis of the photographs, as well as artefacts found on the ground, suggest the circles date back at least 2,000 years, but they may be much older. They could even have been constructed in prehistoric times, before writing was invented, scientists say...

The world loved the swastika - until Hitler stole it
Posted by: martin on Thursday, October 23, 2014 - 11:48 AM
Literature - books magazines & pamphlets In the Western world the swastika is synonymous with fascism, but it goes back thousands of years and has been used as a symbol of good fortune in almost every culture in the world. As more evidence emerges of its long pre-Nazi history in Europe, can this ancient sign ever shake off its evil associations? In the ancient Indian language of Sanskrit, swastika means "well-being". The symbol has been used by Hindus, Buddhists and Jains for millennia and is commonly assumed to be an Indian sign. Early Western travellers to Asia were inspired by its positive and ancient associations and started using it back home. By the beginning of the 20th Century there was a huge fad for the swastika as a benign good luck symbol. "Coca-Cola used it. Carlsberg used it on their beer bottles. The Boy Scouts adopted it and the Girls' Club of America called their magazine Swastika. They would even send out swastika badges to their young readers as a prize for selling copies of the magazine". It was used by American military units during World War One and it could be seen on RAF planes as late as 1939. Most of these benign uses came to a halt in the 1930s as the Nazis rose to power in Germany. The Nazi use of the swastika stems from the work of 19th Century German scholars translating old Indian texts, who noticed similarities between their own language and Sanskrit. They concluded that Indians and Germans must have had a shared ancestry and imagined a race of white god-like warriors they called Aryans...
