When the Pilgrims reached Delftshaven, Holland, they found everything was ready for them to go the next morning. The Speedwell was to take them into Southampton, England, where the Mayflower was waiting to receive them.

I have been working on a tabular overview of the ancient history of the middle east from Egypt to Iran.

The current state of affairs can be seen on this graphic here:

I am planning to include the following regions:

1. Egypt

2. Canaan

2a. Israel

2b. Lebanon

3. Ugarith

4. Aram Damascus (Syria)

6. Aram Naharain (Assyria, northern Iraq)

7. Sumer (Babylon, southern Iraq)

8. Arabia

9. Iran

So far only Egypt is...
This is Part II.  To see Part I first go here:


The first thing that happened when Adam and Eve sinned was the recognition of their nakedness.  They had not noticed that before.  We read earlier: "The man and his wife were both naked, yet they felt no shame."

What changed?  First they were naked and unashamed and now they are naked and ashamed.  How could a man and woman be nak...
I'm not sure whether to put this under history or religion.  I believe Adam and Eve and their story to be a historical narrative and fits all criteria of being so by using names of people and places as would be expected in any other historical accounting of events. 

Of course, we find their story written in one of the oldest manuscripts known to man today.  That is, a book thought to have been written by Moses and perfectly preserved by the Jews through the centuries....

Nearly a century back two young scholars from Oxford University, B P Grenfell and A S Hunt set out to excavate a site on the banks of the Nile in Egypt at a time when the tensions between the French and the British over the status of Egypt was particularly accute. Napoleon had already discovered the antiquities of Egypt and had published them in 11 volumes and Joseph Champillon had read the Rosetta's stone thereby unlocking the secrets of Egypts past. Just at a time when the pursuit of archaeolo...

The land that was originally the kingdoms of Israel and Judaea became in 63 BCE a client kingdom Judaea under Roman control. In 6 CE it became a province Judaea.

After several revolts the Romans, bent on destroying the association of the land with the people of Israel and their god, renamed Judaea "Syria Palestina" and Jerusalem "Aelia Capitolina". The first name, "Palestine", stuck. And even today there are those who call the land "Palestine" and who, at the same time, deny the connection of...

There is an interesting tradition cherished by the Syrian Christians that they possessed their own king at Valeyadattu or Villarvattom near Udayamperur in Kerala.

Tradition records that the first king was named Baliartes or Beliarte, which may be a corruption of the Malayalam Valeyadattu.

The kingdom of Villarvattom comes into prominence twice in the course of Nasrani history. While the first is a part of our folklore the second instance has been documented with some concrete evidence.

Ancient history is facinating largely due to the unexpected surprises it throws up/ Where is the tomb of the great conqueror, Alexander? Where is the last burial spot of Gengiz Khan? There are no answers to these questions. Only speculation tinged with the eternal hope that someday such questions will be answered. May be we have spoken too soon. The facination of ancient histoery probably also lies in the realisation that some questions will for ever remain a mystery. Last week saw the untanglin...

The first ever RAW aired on the USA Network in 1993, and for the first time in five years, RAW was going back home to where it all started. Mr. McMahon and RAW General Manager Eric Bischoff promised a WWE Homecoming for the ages, and that’s exactly what was delivered.

Hey everyone

It's a lunch break at work at the moment so I thought I'd seize the opportunity to say hi. Sitting down at the computer very briefly on the weekend I realised I couldn't remember the last time I'd used the internet at home. Usually after being in front of a computer all day at work I have better things to do, and I don't usually feel right blogging at work. Thus has my silence on the JU pages come about.

So yeah, I hear it's a new year? Time flies... and so much has happened i...

The statues of Easter Island
Easter Island is renowned for the nine hundred massive carved statues known as Moai, some weighing more than fifty tons.

Located 2200 miles due west of Chili and 1200 miles east of Pitcairn Island, is a sixty-three square mile island formed eons ago by two volcanoes. Because a Dutch seaman, Jacob Roggeveen, came upon it on Easter Day, 1722, we know it on our maps as Easter Island. Polynesians know it as Rapa Nui.

By either name, Easter Island is renowned f...
