Giants on Ancient Earth: An In-Depth Study on the Nephilim

The records of the Old World excavated from the Near East to the western shores of ancient South America are filled with obscure references to a race of giants. Even most biblical scholars are unaware of the over 80 references to giants found in the books of the Old Testament just as historians have overlooked the hundreds of references to gigantic people mentioned by ancient chronographers. The greatest common denominator in the pages of the world's oldest epic texts concern giants. Enormous humanoid skeletons have been unearthed in the past and today, huge weapons and megalithic architecture explainable only by the presence of historic giants. This race in Genesis is called the Nephilim and this stunning research delves deeper into the mysteries of the giants than any other known work on the subject.

ATLANTIS SOLON AND PLATO FOR FROST? [NEW EDITION]

Look again at the ATLANTIS legend and discover the hidden truth within the myths and legends handed down through the generations and cultures of the ancient world.

Solon one of the Seven Fages of Greece a celebrated lawmaker, Poet and Statesman travelled the world in search of a blueprint for perfect state.

Whilst he was in Egypt studying beside the sacred priests of the deity Neith at Sais he was informed of the ancient history of Athens and the ancient lost superpower and island empire called Atlantis.

Solon was shocked by the history the priests relayed from their ancient Library archives within the temple grounds of the deity Neith but he listened mesmerized by the details of the island empire of Atlantis.

He continued his travels but recorded the details of Atlantis and when he returned to Athens he incorporated in his own works the accounts of the ancient island empire of Atlantis.

An old friend of Solon's retained the works a man called Dropides who was an ancestor of Plato and handed the works down to Plato.

Atlantis through the words, works and influence of Plato was delivered to the wider world and the once forgotten ancient island empire Atlantis was reanimated and today it still inspires and intrigues people around the world.

K.T. Frost was among the first scholars to associate the island empire of Atlantis with the Minoan world centred on Crete.

His work titled The Lost Continent was published in the London Times on Feb 19th, 1909 an inspired article that drew on the excavations on Crete by Archaeologists on many ancient sites on Crete such as Sir Arthur Evans discoveries on the Knossos

site.

Atlantis by its association with the Minoan world was when later discoveries were uncovered by archaeologists on nearby Santorini back in the news again.

Archaeology and now Science and technology along with many scholars and historians began to associate the Theran eruption event with the Minoan and Atlantis island empires.

Ancient lost island empires ruled by seafaring peoples who controlled the high seas of the ancient world by their superior technology in navigation and shipbuilding.

Imperial Matter

At publication date, a version of this title will be available through Luminos, University of California Press' new open access publishing program. What is the role of the material world in shaping the tensions and paradoxes of imperial sovereignty? Scholars have long shed light on the complex processes of conquest, extraction, and colonialism under imperial rule. But imperialism has usually been cast as an exclusively human drama, one in which the world of matter does not play an active role. Lori Khatchadourian argues instead that things-from everyday objects to monumental buildings-profoundly shape social and political life under empire. Out of the archaeology of ancient Persia and the South Caucasus, Imperial Matter advances powerful new analytical approaches to the study of imperialism writ large and should be read by scholars working on empire across the humanities and social sciences.
