Throughout this book the authors explorations links the scroll to the Ancient Egyptian king Akhhenaten, The priests of Aten, the Essenes and the location of the hiding places of the lost treasures of Amarna, confirming a long suspected influence of this pharaoh’s religious beliefs on those of the Hebrews. The famous Dead Sea Scrolls compromise the oldest collection of Biblical documents ever discovered. Of the Dead Sea Scrolls, none has baffled experts more than the 2,000-year-old Copper Scroll, discovered in 1952 by a team of Bedouin led by Henri Contenson of the Ecole Biblique in Eastern Jerusalem. Appearing to be a list of buried treasure engraved on copper pieces, the Copper Scroll is considered to be the work of a highly secretive Jewish sect of devout Essenes, who lived by the Dead Sea around the time of Jesus. No one has been able to explain its meaning or discover any of the 64 locations where the biblical treasures it lists were buried. Now Robert Feather, combining his scientific background as a metallurgist with his journalistic expertise, has unravelled the enigma of the Copper Scroll in a fascinating study that takes the reader on a journey to  the ancient Egyptian island of Yeb (modern day Elephantine), Lake Tana, Ethiopia (home of the Falasha Jews), ancient Mesopotamia, through Canaan, into Egypt and back to the shores of the Dead Sea. Fascinating reading which is full of intrique.       Author:  Robert Feather Publisher: Bear & Company Isbn: 9781591430148

BREAKING THE MIRROR OF HEAVEN: The Conspiracy to Suppress the Voice of Ancient Egypt

This book exposes the many cycles of monument destruction and cultural suppression in Egypt from antiquity to the present day – Details the vandalism of Egyptian antiquities and suppression of ancient knowledge under foreign rulers who sought to cleanse Egypt of its “pagan” past – Reveals the real reason behind Napoleon’s invasion of Egypt: Freemasonry – Shows how the censorship of nonofficial Egyptology as well as new archaeological discoveries continued under Antiquities Minister Zahi Hawass Called the “Mirror of Heaven” by Hermes-Thoth and regarded as the birthplace of civilization, science, religion, and magic, Egypt has ignited the imagination of all who come in contact with it since ancient times–from Pythagoras and Plato to Alexander the Great and Napoleon to modern Egyptologists the world over. Yet, despite this preeminence in the collective mind, Egypt has suffered considerable destruction over the centuries. Even before the burning of the Great Library at Alexandria, the land of the pharaohs was pillaged by its own people. With the arrival of foreign rulers, both Arabic and European, the destruction and thievery continued along with suppression of ancient knowledge as some rulers sought to cleanse Egypt of its “pagan” past. Exploring the many cycles of destruction and suppression in Egypt as well as moments of salvation, such as the first registered excavations by Auguste Mariette, Robert Bauval and Ahmed Osman investigate the many conquerors of Egypt through the millennia as well as what has happened to famous artifacts such as the Rosetta Stone. They show how Napoleon, through his invasion, wanted to revive ancient Egyptian wisdom and art because of its many connections to Freemasonry. They reveal how the degradation of monuments, theft of relics, and censorship of ancient teachings continue to this day. Exposing recent cover-ups during the tenure of Antiquities Minister Zahi Hawass, they explain how new discoveries at Giza were closed to further research. Clearing cultural and historical distortions, the authors reveal the long-hidden and persecuted voice of ancient Egypt and call for the return of Egypt to its rightful place as “the Mother of Nations” and “the Mirror of Heaven.”              Author:  Robert Bauaval & Ahmed Osman Publisher: Bear & Company Isbn:  9781591431565 Date available: 25th July 2012
