Anonymous: Gosto muito do teu blogue e do teu cabelo. Quando fores arqueóloga, espero que partilhes as fotografias das tuas descobertas por aqui.

Obrigada querida ou querido. Eu adoro receber mensagens que me fazem sorrir, e esta é mais do que incrível. E se tiver este blogue no futuro vou partilhar as fotografias das coisas belíssimas das minhas descobertas, sim. Um does meus sonhos e para encontrar um sarcófago de uma rainha.  Desculpa porque escrevo terrivelmente em português . 

Anonymous: Falas português?

Sim, falo perfeitamente e sei escrever mais ou menos.

Book of the Dead of Neysushutefnut, the 4th century BCE, Late Period, Dynasty 31-early Ptolemaic Period
This page from a long funerary papyrus illustrates chapter 125 of the Book of the Dead called “The Weighing of the Heart.” The ancient Egyptians believed that the heart of the deceased was weighed on a balance against the feather of Maat (the goddess of truth and cosmic order). If the deceased passed this test, he or she would be reborn in the afterlife.
From the Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead. The Ani Scroll, Spell 17.
Seated statue of Gudea, 2150–2100 b.c.; Neo-Sumerian period Probably Tello (ancient Girsu), Southern Mesopotamia. The Akkadian empire collapsed after two centuries of rule, and during the succeeding fifty years, local kings ruled independent city-states in southern Mesopotamia.

Felt they could provide a residence for a deity by creating their own artificial mountains.
