Tutankhamun was very different from other pharaohs and was well known around the world. His tomb was discovered carved into cliffs in the middle of modern Egypt. Many people call this area the Valley of Kings due to discoveries of many other tombs (Hawass).

Bill Bryson Literary Commentary 13/01/2016 Liam S.Hare Introduction: Chapter seven in the book, “The Lost Continent” written by Bill Bryson, struck me as a rather disappointing chapter in the book. Because of its endless repetitiveness, i found myself just as confused and irritated as Bryson must have been writing this chapter. The Chapter in question, commences in the morning in a town named “Tupelo”. Famed worldwide for being the birthplace of Elvis Presley, as you already know. Bryson is taking a tour of “The King’s” birthplace, a tidy white little house situated in the shade of the vast Elvis Presley park.
Introduction Alabaster name may derive further from the Ancient Egyptian word alabaste, which refers to vessels of the Egyptian goddess Bast, who was represented as a lioness and frequently depicted as such when placed atop these alabaster vessels. It has been suggested that the name was derived from the town of Alabaster on in Egypt, while an arabic etymological origin has also been suggested by Harrell, 1990 . Travertine also is commonly referred to as alabaster in the Egyptological literature, with this term being derived from alabastrites, the ancient Roman name for the stone . The technically correct name for the Egyptian stone is "travertine" and its dense, non-porous character classifies it as the sub-variety "calcareous sinter". It is very different from the spongy-looking, highly porous "calcareous tufa" from near Tivoli, Italy, which is more closely associated with the name "travertine" in the minds of many archaeologists and art historians.
Eleanor and Park also often reverse what might be considered to be traditional gender roles. Park frequently tells Eleanor that he loves her, but Eleanor doesn’t say it back to him. Eleanor is physically larger than Park, but Park is more emotionally sophisticated than Eleanor. Eleanor dresses in men’s clothing frequently, which is partly out of convenience, since she gets her clothes form Goodwill and doesn’t have many options. However, she also chooses to wear men’s clothes, dressing up in a shirt and tie for her phone date with Park because this outfit makes her feel powerful and confident in herself.

Known to be the oldest surviving English epics, Beowulf was written in the sixth century by the Beowulf Poet. The combination of blood feuds, Paganism, Christianity and gender roles has led historians to believe that the Anglo-Saxons and monks had an influence on structuring and forming the narrative. A classroom classic, Beowulf tells the story of a heroic king fighting against evil until his death. Like many countries during Medieval times, England also did not give women as many rights as men. Though women were not of much importance, as thought by the Dark Age people, the small female role seen in Beowulf had a large impact on the central idea.
