In this book, Cyril Aldred argues against the belief of Ancient Egyptian Art being static and unchanging over the many centuries over the Old, Middle and New kingdoms. He tries to show the subtle developments that Ancient Egyptian Art went through and draws a chronological sketch of the progress in Art, Architecture, and sculpture. Substantiated by numerous illustrations, the author compares the art objects made by the Egyptians under the rule of several Pharaohs and points out at the differences in each reign - epistemological and ontological. My work is informed by Aldred’s study of ancient Egyptian barges and they have provided
The Political Infrastructure varies greatly between Egypt and Mesopotamia. In Egypt the authority of government was created around 3100 B.C.E. from an individual named Menes which later caused for the authority of Egypt to be in the hands of Pharaohs during the Archaic Period (3100-2600 B.C.E.) and Old Kingdom (2660-2180 B.C.E). Pharaohs of the Archaic Period and Old Kingdom An example of a pharaoh that ruled Egypt would be Pharaoh Ahmosis, which during his reign from 1500 B.C.E had the full authority of Egypt.
Therefore, Ancient Egypt witnessed cycles of what historians refer to as the ‘rise and fall’ or ‘formation and reformation’ of the State. The First Intermediate Period is “characterized as a period of chaos, decline, misery, and social and political dissolution: a ‘dark age’ separating two epochs of glory and power” (Seidlmayer 145). By using terms such as ‘fall’, ‘decline’ or ‘collapse’ of the State, modern Egyptologists largely present a negative image of the First Intermediate Period.

if some passions high have warm’d the world, If queens and soldiers have play’d high for hearts, It is no reason why such agonies Should be more common than the growth of weeds (II, 11-14) Now Lamia is transformed from a half woman/half serpent into a woman and her cunningness shows that she cannot be trusted. This allegorical poem has deeper meanings. It is also ambiguous, which is how Keats always refers to women, as ambiguous and indicates that she recollects her essentially demonic nature: Ah, happy Lycius! ?for she was a maid More beautiful than ever twisted braid. Also, she is said to be A virgin purest lipp 'd, yet in the lore Of love deep learned to the red heart 's core: Not one hour old, yet of sciential brain To unperplex bliss from its neighbor pain; As though in Cupid 's college she had spent Sweet days a lovely graduate, still unshent, And kept his rosy terms in idle languishment.
Indeed in Valentin’s morphine dream, which closes the novel, Molina – as seductive, though nurturing spider woman – is inescapably caught in an essentialist web of gender: unable to move.” The films are evidence of their control over an individual through their power to decide the appropriate behaviour of an individual. This is represented by Molina’s description as a female, and Valentin who cannot surrender to the seduction of Molina and keep his political ideas. The spider woman is not a metaphor of an character but rather of society as a whole. Society creates a web of standards that is fed to the characters and related again through the stories of the films. In conclusion, Kiss of the Spider Woman is not a story about a story of gay love but it is still a tale of seduction.

In term of History, there are two similarities and one difference. At first, both Angkor Wat and Stonehenge were built for more than 1,000 years ago as mentioned above. Angkor Wat was built in 1113 but it still managed to remain most of its shape until today (Kimsoryar Tour, 2014). On the other hand, Stonehenge was built since over 3,000 years ago (Nomadic Matt, 2008). Additionally, they both were once abandoned by human kind.

Her Best Friend When a spider spins a web she lies quietly, patiently, deathly still, until her prey is tethered by the fine stands clinging to it. Impressively, all she is left to do is wait and watch her victim struggle as it writhes desperately to escape, only to find that the more it moves, the more entwined it becomes it the sticky threads. Unbelievably the spider does not twitch as her victim drives itself to exhaustion and eventually stops struggling. Let me tell you a story about a girl I used to know. She was smart and cheery, she loved seeing her friends, loved playing sports, drawing and frankly, couldn't understand how people lived without reading a book, or multiple books.
