REVIEW: It was said, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” True, very true! But what if a picture is hard to understand or does not explain what we are looking at? This happens quite often in the vast literature and history of ancient civilizations. Especially, when the inscriptions on or under the pictures or illustrations are written in a language we do not understand, such as Cuneiform, Ugaritic, Akkadian, Sumerian, Phoenician, and similar writing systems of the ancient Middle and Near East. In addition, there are thousands of slabs, cylinder seals, tablets, and obelisks of ancient and/or vanished civilizations, which are hard to decipher. And in many instances, no pertaining inscriptions or texts were ever provided to explain what the statues, figurines, slabs and tablets represent. To fully understand the scriptures, texts, epics and literature of Mesopotamia, Sumer, Assyria, Chaldea, Phoenicia, Ugarit, and the Anunnaki, one must become familiar with the meaning (Hidden or revealed) of the inscriptions, the symbolism camouflaged in intricate details, and the religious-artistic-philosophical nuances of the art of the era. This requires authentic description, translation and explanation of: Ancient symbols; Archeological finds; Maps; Seals and Slabs; Cuneiform inscriptions and writings; Statues and figurines; Carving/Illustrations/Drawings; Familiarity with historical sites, ruins, and cities; Linguistic analogies. This book was written in order to deal with and to explain all these concerns, and above all to provide the readers with sufficient guidance, translation and explanation of major archeological finds, ranging from a figurine to a massive monument. The author included, translated and explained Mesopotamia, Sumer, Babylon, Akkad, Assyria, Phoenicia most important: Symbols; Archeological sites, ruins, and cities; Ziggurat; Maps; Seals; Slabs; Cuneiform Inscriptions; Statues; Figurines; Obelisks; Stone Carvings; Illustrations; Drawings; Plaques; Monuments; Temples; Mysteries and related subjects. PROFESSIONAL REVIEWS: REVIEW: Outstanding. Standard guide for students and researchers. [Professor S. S. Narayanan]. READER REVIEWS: REVIEW: My country Georgia has three kinds of alphabets. The oldest one is very close to the Sumerian Language. Scientists and linguists in Georgia made a study of the ancient Georgian language and the Sumerian language and found out that 70 percent of the ancient Sumerian words can be read using the old Georgian Alphabet. I advise people to have a look at the Georgian language in Britannica. This book is important because it explains the origin of many languages, strange inscriptions and mysterious alphabets. Because I like history and ancient civilizations, I find this book very important. It explains many secrets and mysteries from 5000 years ago and some are still related to modern mysteries in Europe, Georgia, Armenia and other countries. It is wonderful. I always ship books Media Mail in a padded mailer. This book is shipped FOR FREE via USPS INSURED media mail (“book rate”). All domestic shipments and most international shipments will include free USPS Delivery Confirmation (you might be able to update the status of your shipment on-line at the USPS Web Site) and free insurance coverage. A small percentage of international shipments may require an additional fee for tracking and/or delivery confirmation. If you are concerned about a little wear and tear to the book in transit, I would suggest a boxed shipment - it is an extra $1.00. Whether via padded mailer or box, we will give discounts for multiple purchases. International orders are welcome, but shipping costs are substantially higher. Most international orders cost an additional $12.99 to $33.99 for an insuredshipment in a heavily padded mailer, and typically includes some form of rudimentary tracking and/or delivery confirmation (though for some countries, this is only available at additional cost). There is also a discount program which can cut postage costs by 50% to 75% if you’re buying about half-a-dozen books or more (5 kilos+). Rates and available services vary a bit from country to country. You can email or message me for a shipping cost quote, but I assure you they are as reasonable as USPS rates allow, and if it turns out the rate is too high for your pocketbook, we will cancel the sale at your request. ADDITIONAL PURCHASES do receive a VERY LARGE discount, typically about $5 per book (for each additional book after the first) so as to reward you for the economies of combined shipping/insurance costs. Your purchase will ordinarily be shipped within 48 hours of payment. We package as well as anyone in the business, with lots of protective padding and containers. All of our shipments are sent via insured mail so as to comply with PayPal requirements. We do NOT recommend uninsured shipments, and expressly disclaim any responsibility for the loss of an uninsured shipment. Unfortunately the contents of parcels are easily “lost” or misdelivered by postal employees – even in the USA. That’s why all of our domestic shipments (and most international) shipments include a USPS delivery confirmation tag; or are trackable or traceable, and all shipments (international and domestic) are insured. We do offer U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail, Registered Mail, and Express Mail for both international and domestic shipments, as well United Parcel Service (UPS) and Federal Express (Fed-Ex). Please ask for a rate quotation. We will accept whatever payment method you are most comfortable with. If upon receipt of the item you are disappointed for any reason whatever, I offer a no questions asked return policy. Send it back, I will give you a complete refund of the purchase price (less our original shipping costs). Most of the items I offer come from the collection of a family friend who was active in the field of Archaeology for over forty years. However many of the items also come from purchases I make in Eastern Europe, India, and from the Levant (Eastern Mediterranean/Near East) from various institutions and dealers. Though I have always had an interest in archaeology, my own academic background was in sociology and cultural anthropology. After my retirement however, I found myself drawn to archaeology as well. Aside from my own personal collection, I have made extensive and frequent additions of my own via purchases on Ebay (of course), as well as many purchases from both dealers and institutions throughout the world - but especially in the Near East and in Eastern Europe. I spend over half of my year out of the United States, and have spent much of my life either in India or Eastern Europe. In fact much of what we generate on Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay goes to support The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as some other worthy institutions in Europe connected with Anthropology and Archaeology. I acquire some small but interesting collections overseas from time-to-time, and have as well some duplicate items within my own collection which I occasionally decide to part with. Though I have a collection of ancient coins numbering in the tens of thousands, my primary interest is in ancient jewelry. My wife also is an active participant in the "business" of antique and ancient jewelry, and is from Russia. I would be happy to provide you with a certificate/guarantee of authenticity for any item you purchase from me. There is a $2 fee for mailing under separate cover. Whenever I am overseas I have made arrangements for purchases to be shipped out via domestic mail. If I am in the field, you may have to wait for a week or two for a COA to arrive via international air mail. But you can be sure your purchase will arrive properly packaged and promptly - even if I am absent. And when I am in a remote field location with merely a notebook computer, at times I am not able to access my email for a day or two, so be patient, I will always respond to every email.
