Ancient Letters

Biridiya of Megiddo - A Letter from a Canaanite ruler to pharaoh - possibly Akhenaten around 1352-1336 BC.

"To the king, my Lord, my God and Sun, thus speaks Biridiya the loyal servant of the king. I prostrate myself at the feet of the king seven times and seven times.

May the king know that since the archers have gone back Labayu, king of Shechem, carries out acts of hostility against me. We cannot pass through the gate and we cannot shear the wool in the presence of Labayu. He knows that you have not given me archers and now he intends to take Meggido. In truth, the city is destroyed by death as a result of pestilence and disease.

Give me one hundred garrison troops to guard the city, lest Labayu take it. Certainly, Labayu has no another intentions. He tries to destroy Meggido."

Imagining Egypt

My book will be published in the spring and you will be able to purchase a copy of Imagining Egypt from most bookshops in the USA and Canada.

It has taken me two years to produce the 192 pages of text and 600 illustrations. While doing research in Egypt my wife and I produced over 2000 photos. (Some of which I hope to make available to Newsletter subscribers next year.)

I will be producing a special signed edition which will include a bookmark and a CD containing a free copy of the Hieroglyphic Print Machine (still on the drawing board as yet). This version of the book will only be available from the website.

If you would like to register your interest in obtaining a copy of this special edition *click here* to send me an eMail - Please include your name.
