Full description for The Death of Gods in Ancient Egypt
Originally published by Penguin Ltd., this revised edition features unusual Egyptian artwork, striking pictures of eclipse phenomena, and numerous sky-charts and computer printouts. These are used to support the author's contention that the origins of Egypt's key religious myths are revealed by computer correlations of observable precessional changes with a dramatic eighty-year period of predicted total eclipses. Egyptologist Richard H. Wilkinson wrote, "you have certainly packed a great amount of research into the book and have provided much food for thought. Certainly, you have encouraged me to look at a number of things in a very different light" And the late Lovell Thompson, publisher of Hamlet's Mill, wrote, "Giorgio's Hamlet's Mill and your Death of Gods are the only two books which propose, elaborate, and support a highly credible theory of the origin and uses of ancient myth. You have the right tiger by the tail."
