The Ethiopians, according to Herodotus, “reverence of the gods Zeus and Dionysos alone, and these they greatly honour; and they have an Oracle of Zeus established, and make warlike marches whensoever this god commands them by prophecy and to whatsoever place he commands.” Science was also believed to have traversed from the Upper Nile, the homeland of the Ethiopians, into Egypt.

Were there others that came perhaps before and during the original population of North and South America by those that would later be called “Native Americans”?

More > their original form they have long been difficult to obtain; they are reprinted now to supply the needs of candidates for the Oxford Diploma in Anthropology, and of the numerous visitors to the Pitt-Rivers Museum in Oxford. But they will certainly appeal to a far wider public also, as a brief and authentic statement of their author’s discoveries. The four Essays are reprinted substantially as they were first delivered and published. But verbal errors and actual misquotations have been corrected; and allusions to specimens or diagrams exhibited during the original discourses, but not published, have been replaced so far as possible by references to similar objects figured in the Plates. The Plates are photographic reproductions of the original illustrations, from a faded original; have been translated original texts.< Less

More > place all these articles in one place to serve as both a resource for the academic researcher and casual cultural reader. These articles and the effort to identify ancient place names of Kapolei grew out of the mission of the Kapolei Hawaiian Civic Club to give the new city of Kapolei a Hawaiian cultural presence. Much like many other new cities Kapolei is a place of migrants. Most everyone is from somewhere else. They bring with them their personal values that help them make decisions. These decisions can play a big part in shaping communities. Rather than changing or creating a new place with foreign names, perhaps the ancient names will give us an appreciation of its past. Hopefully this book will not only help city and state planners, developers, architects but also us....those who seek knowledge.< Less
