If you want to learn about early African History then I suggest you start with my series of books as they are probably the best introduction to the ancient and medieval history of Black people. This history is as important as the history of the peoples of Asia, Europe, or the Americas. Moreover, the achievements of the early people of Africa are as amazing and inspiring as the achievements of any other people. This history is much older than the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade and looks at the ancient civilizations of Africa particularly those of the Nile Valley such as Nubia and Ancient Egypt. All books are fully illustrated and they each make recommendations to other books for more in depth study.

Understanding The Book of The Dead

understanding the BOTD

The Ancient Egyptians had a practice of burying the dead with a papyrus roll called ‘Coming Forth By Day’. This roll, better known as The Book of the Dead, was a text of the utmost importance.

It addressed the biggest questions of human existence and the afterlife.

What happens to your soul after death?

The Book of the Dead contains the oldest documented body of human ideas on this question. However, later religions have copied the Egyptian ideas and claimed them as their own.

It is for this reason that unscrupulous Christian ministers, dealing with topics they barely understand, have misled their flock into believing that the end of the world is coming soon.

In this text I explain the following:

1. Egyptian ideas and concepts of life and death
2. How the Egyptians used the Book of the Dead
3. The prehistory of the Book of the Dead
4. The Mysteries of Amenta
5. Judgement in the Hall of the Two Ma’ats
