Overview

The scandalous rape of Ancient Egypt is a historical vignette of greed, vanity, and dedicated archaeological research. It is a tale vividly told by renowned archaeology author, Brian Fagan, with characters that include the ancient historian Herodotus; Theban tomb robbers; obelisk-stealing Romans; Coptic Christians determined to erase the heretical past; mummy traders; leisured antiquarians; major European museums; Giovanni Belzoni, a circus strongman who removed more antiquities than Napoleon's armies; shrewd consuls and ruthless pashas; and archaeologists such Sir Flinders Petrie who changed the course of Egyptology. This is the first thoroughly revised edition of The Rape of the Nile - Fagan's classic account of the cavalcade of archaeologists, thieves, and sightseers who have flocked to the Nile Valley since ancient times. Featured in this edition are new accounts of stunning recent discoveries, including the Royal Tombs of Tanis, the Valley of Golden Mummies at Bahariya, the Tomb of the Sons of Ramses, and the sunken city of Alexandria (whose lighthouse was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World). Fagan concludes with a clear-eyed assessment of the impact of modern mass tourism on archaeological sites and artifacts.

    A real one :)

    Me and my boyfriend, Noah, have been dating since 2011. After school, I hugged him goodbye but he began making out with me. I squirmed, though I loved it having his rock hard er<_>ction pushing against my throbbing pu<_>ssy. He pulled away, grabbing my hand and pulling me into an empty classroom. Noah ripped my jeans off, and his too and pushed me backward harshly onto the teachers desk. I was surprised by his dominance and I froze. "Do you have a co<_>ndom?" I asked worridly. "Co<_>ndom Shmondom, I have been waiting to fu<_>ck you all day." He replied, digging his foot long co<_>ck up my extraordinarily wet pu<_>ssy. I groaned, panting as he sped up. "Noah!" I whisper shouted as I reached my point. I came, shaking hard. He tensed up, and his ba<_>lls tightened. "I'm going to come." He moaned, pushing farther up me. "No! Pull out!" I shouted, trying despretly to pull away. He came. Today, I am pregnant with twins, and I am in 9th grade. Hope chu enjoyed!
