4. Herodotus Book 2
herodotus's account of Egyptian life after the invasion by the Persians.
Herodotus Book 2
Chapter 1
[1] After the death of Cyrus, Cambyses inherited his throne. He was the son of Cyrus and of Cassandane, the daughter of Pharnaspes, for whom Cyrus mourned deeply when she died before him, and had all his subjects mourn also.
[2] Cambyses was the son of this woman and of Cyrus. He considered the Ionians and Aeolians slaves inherited from his father, and prepared an expedition against Egypt, taking with him some of these Greek subjects besides others whom he ruled.
Chapter 2
[1] Now before Psammetichus became king of Egypt, the Egyptians believed that they were the oldest people on earth. But ever since Psammetichus became king and wished to find out which people were the oldest, they have believed that the Phrygians were older than they, and they than everybody else.
[2] Psammetichus, when he was in no way able to learn by inquiry which people had first come into being, devised a plan by which he took two newborn children of the common people and gave them to a shepherd to bring up among his flocks. He gave instructions that no one was to speak a word in their hearing; they were to stay by themselves in a lonely hut, and in due time the shepherd was to bring goats and give the children their milk and do everything else necessary.
[3] Psammetichus did this, and gave these instructions, because he wanted to hear what speech would first come from the children, when they were past the age of indistinct babbling. And he had his wish; for one day, when the shepherd had done as he was told for two years, both children ran to him stretching out their hands and calling "Bekos!" as he opened the door and entered.

5. Herodotus Of Halicarnassus
Jona Lendering's guide to herodotus features a biography and several essays regarding the historian's originality, causality, and moral views. The Greek researcher and storyteller herodotus of Halicarnassus (fifth century BCE) was the world's first historian.
home ancient Greece index Herodotus of Halicarnassus The Greek researcher and storyteller Herodotus of Halicarnassus (fifth century BCE) was the world's first historian. In The Histories , he describes the expansion of the Achaemenid empire under its kings Cyrus the Great Cambyses and Darius, culminating in king Xerxes' expedition in 480 BCE against the Greeks, which met with disaster in the naval engagement at Salamis and the battles at Plataea and Mycale. Herodotus' remarkable book also contains excellent ethnographic descriptions of the peoples that the Persians have conquered, fairy tales, gossip, legends, and a very humanitarian morale.

Herodotus on causality
The Histories
Herodotus of Halicarnassus hereby publishes the results of his inquiries, hoping to do two things: to preserve the memory of the past by putting on record the astonishing achievements both of the Greek and the non-Greek peoples; and more particularly, to show how the two races came into conflict. These are the confident opening lines of Herodotus' Histories , and the Greeks who heard them must have been surprised. Preserving the memory of the past by putting on record certain astonishing achievements was not unusual, but the bards who had been singing legendary tales had been less pretentious. Even the great poet Homer had started his

The Persian Wars:
The Battle of Marathon
Herodotus (484-425 BC) is considered by many to be the founder of history as philosophical discipline. In this excerpt from his greatest work, the Persian Wars, he describes the crucial battle of Marathon between the Greeks and the Persians. So Hippias believed that in this way his dream was fulfilled. The Athenians were drawn up in order of battle in a sacred close belonging to Hercules when they were joined by the Plataeans, who came in full force to their aid. Some time before, the Plataeans had put themselves under the rule of the Athenians, and these last had already undertaken many labours on their behalf. The occasion of the surrender was the following. The Plataeans suffered grievous things at the hands of the men of Thebes; so, as it chanced that Cleomenes, the son of Anaxandridas, and the Lacedaemonians were in their neighbourhood, they first of all offered to surrender themselves to them. But the Lacedaemonians refused to receive them, and said, "We dwell too far off from you, and ours would be but chill succour. Ye might oftentimes be carried into slavery before one of us heard of it. We counsel you rather to give yourselves up to the Athenians, who are your next neighbours, and well able to shelter you." The Athenian generals were divided in their opinions, and some advised not to risk a battle, because they were too few to engage such a host as that of the Medes, while others were for fighting at once, and among these last was Miltiades. He therefore, seeing that opinions were thus divided, and that the less worthy counsel appeared likely to prevail, resolved to go to the Polemarch, and have a conference with him. For the man on whom the lot fell to be Polemarch at Athens was entitled to give his vote with the ten generals, since anciently the Athenians allowed him an equal right of voting with them. The Polemarch at this juncture was Callimachus of Aphidnae; to him therefore Miltiades went, and said:

11. Herodotus: Xerxes At The Hellespont
Translation of a brief story in which the Greek historian depicts the great Xerxes as a superstitious fool and a bloodthirsty tyrant. The Persian army is preparing to cross the Hellespont, which separated Asia from Europe.
Herodotus: The Histories: Xerxes at the Hellespont (mid 5th Century BCE)
What incidents described below depict Xerxes as superstitious? As tyrannical? They then began to build bridges across the Hellespont from Abydos to that headland between Sestus and Madytus, the Phoenicians building one of ropes made from flax, and the Egyptians building a second one out of papyrus. From Abydos to the opposite shore it is a distance of almost two-thirds of a mile. But no sooner had the strait been bridged than a great storm came on and cut apart and scattered all their work. Xerxes flew into a rage at this, and he commanded that the Hellespont be struck with three hundred strokes of the whip and that a pair of foot-chains be thrown into the sea. It's even been said that he sent off a rank of branders (1) along with the rest to the Hellespont! He also commanded the scourgers to speak outlandish and arrogant words: "You hateful water, our master lays his judgement on you thus, for you have unjustly punished him even though he's done you no wrong! Xerxes the king will pass over you, whether you wish it or not! It is fitting that no man offer you sacrifices, (2)

15. True Strength Hercules And Amazon; Africa's Native Heroes Yesterday, Today And T
herodotus wrote about Hercules as being Ethiopian and Egyptian in origin. This book excerpt reveals that Hercules was actually of African descent.
True Strength Hercules and Amazon; Africa's Native Heroes Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow: The Heroic African Legacy! Forget what you learned in the movies, this is the REAL HERCULES!!!
" Black he stood as night, His bow uncased, his arrow strung for flight". Homer wrote this verse to describe the legendary first world hero known as Hercules. The first verse with some modification could also be true of the legendary first world heroine, the Amazon. They were two African world teachers who left a legacy of goodwill which was emulated by their successors.
Hercules and Amazon were the prototypes of the solar hero and heroine whose origins in Africa came forth as inspiration in the development of schools. In Ethiopia schools were established for the training of the mind, body and will. Training and education for these schools spread to Egypt, the Middle East, India, Ireland, and other places in Europe.
In every era and in various countries men and women and men trained and educated themselves to help humanity. This is even true today. These helpers were teachers, the first law enforcement officers, and ambassadors of good will whereever they traveled. They encouraged the arts and sciences too. Stories of their great deeds have come to our present age as legends. Myths behind the stories are elements of historical events.
Hollywood has erroneously presented Hercules and Amazon exclusively as heroes of European ancestry , and without emphasis on their role as teachers.

The History of Herodotus By Herodotus Written 440 B.C.E Translated by George Rawlinson Table of Contents Book II Euterpe On the death of Cyrus, Cambyses his son by Cassandane daughter of Pharnaspes took the kingdom. Cassandane had died in the lifetime of Cyrus, who had made a great mourning for her at her death, and had commanded all the subjects of his empire to observe the like. Cambyses, the son of this lady and of Cyrus, regarding the Ionian and Aeolian Greeks as vassals of his father, took them with him in his expedition against Egypt among the other nations which owned his sway. Now the Egyptians, before the reign of their king Psammetichus, believed themselves to be the most ancient of mankind. Since Psammetichus

A study of the logistical aspects of Egyptian pyramid construction in the 25th century BC by civil engineer Peter Prevos. Includes bibliography and links to herodotus's comments on pyramidbuilding.
Pyramid Construction
Ongoing research on the logistical aspects of Egyptian
pyramid construction in the 25 th century BC
The pyramids of Egypt have, over the centuries, been the subject of research by many scholars. From the very esoteric theories on why the pyramids were built to a more practical approach on how they were built.
On this page I present my own research and conclusions about the logistical aspects of the construction of the Egyptian pyramids in the 25 th century BC.
I am a professional civil engineer and my approach to the problem is the same as to any other similar problem that I would deal with in my work. I concentrate mainly on the logistical aspects of pyramid construction e.g. the flow of materials, the use of labour and the total construction time. For this I used the construction method described by Peter Hodges in his book ' How the pyramids were built ' because,
The desk study is a very theoretical approach to the problem in which I tried to get a feel for the problem.
In October 1997 I have visited Egypt and from that visit I have compiled a second report . Because of lots of other projects I am doing now I can not find the time to continue my work. Although the method I have analysed in the desk study might not be the way the pyramid actual was built and although I had to make some assumptions to keep my mathematical model simple I think I have proved that it is possible to build structures like this with nothing more then lots of hard manual labour, technical insight and divine inspiration.
