Re: Free resource: books about ATG

That was a general link for the webpage where you can search for many different topics. For ATG books you have to type his name in the search bar. Here is specific link to Alexander https://www.pdfdrive.com/alexander-the-great-books.html

Teachers of Alexander

Yesterday, October 5, was World Teachers' Day - to all teachers here - thank you very much for the important job you are doing. I wish you all to have attentive and inquisitive students! Alexander was definitely an inquisitive student of Aristotle but whether he was attentive - it's a question mark....

Re: "Trampling in the Land of Woe"

There are cheaper ones on Abebooks.co.uk. Anyone know what the other two volumes are called or about? Yes, the second book is called "Sparks from a Cruel Grindstone" and it is about Boudica, the third one was not published yet, I think. The second and third books are not about Hephaistion but about...

Re: "Trampling in the Land of Woe"

This is interesting. Thanks. I looked it up, but it costs somewhere around $150 used. I may collect ATG fiction, but that's too rich for my blood. LOL! Still, the author seems to have a page on Goodreads. Their may be another option to get a hold of the novel. $150 USD used? I bought a new book on ...

Re: Visit to Vergina

Hi, Delos. Thank you for posting the link to this. I'm enjoying going through the images! Thank you. This time I fell in love with Vergina, despite all the drawbacks of restriction in taking photos. Though many love Pella better, Vegina's current advantage is that most of the finds are from time of...

Re: Chamber 4

The most early burial (chamber 4 ) was luxurious and housed a man of 33/35 ca years old ( parts of the skeleton were recovered) whose feet touched a rectangle object that contained Hephaestion s ashes that was in turn brought there from Babylon after his own burial/ cremation . The ashes have been ...

First, a very important disclaimer. I know it is a hot political topic so I want assure you I am not posting it here in order to ignite any sort of controversy. While browsing Facebook I saw this caricature but almost scrolled down because my Greek is too poor to translate any political witticisms. ...

I found some maps of this campaign in the books of N.G.L. Hammond. The last of these books I bought is: 'The Genius of Alexander the Great', London 1997. The maps are at page 33 (the Balkan area) and 38 (The manoeuvres at Pelium). Sorry, I'm not able to post a photo... Thank you, hiphys! I found th...
