KIRKUS REVIEW

In archaeological terms, this is the period of history between 2134 BC and 1991 BC, which footnotes and reconstructs the civilization and the events of that debatable era. From excavation, exploration, discoveries, the substantiation of theories is presented. The movement from East to West, its influence, and Egypts antiquity are discussed in scholarly detail. Here, from the records of groups, buildings, tombs, rulers, priesthood, the story of actual civilization of 143 years is authenticated in the light of dynasty accounts. A specific for those knowledgeable and with definite interest in basic origins of civilization, particularly of the Near East.
