E.A. Wallis Budge never ceases to amaze me. Every time I think I have everything he ever wrote, I think I find 3 new titles. He's so prolific and seems to be the end all be all on Ancient History. Found some tidbit of from the ancient world you'd like to investigate - there's probably a Budge book for that. His prose is nothing special, and at times even a little boring, but I love reading his work and hope to read it all before I die.

Note for Homeschool Moms: This was my "grown-up reading time" during my 5 year old's ancient history year. It was neat teaching her the bare bones of the Babylonians and Assyrians out of Susan Wise Bauer's Story of the World and memorizing tidbits from the Classical Conversations curriculum, while getting a deeper dose for myself. I'll continue this effort of furthering my education while I begin hers as long as I can. If you don't have time for that, I understand completely; but if you do, this is a worthy book to select.

I bought this because I wanted a reference book on Babylonians and it was very cheap, 8 bucks at Barnes and Noble.

It's extremely dated and makes vast assumptions that are horrifying. The blurb on the back advertised a discussion on Babylonian "vampires", to which I said "Really?". The passage that discusses vampires is about one page long and is simply a tangent proclaiming that Egyptians were terrified of vampires, evidenced by how they seal up organs in jars and entombed their pharaohs. This is absolutely untrue.

The blurb also mentions a practice called "baby-farming". The index says "baby-farming" can be found on page "xi", which of course is the introduction. The introduction is a repetition of the blurb on the back. So I will never know what 'baby-farming' is.

The text is by a Victorian writer, something that makes itself very apparent when discussing marriages and he states that marriages are arranged 'much like ours are'. What he considers pertinent is bizarre and how he comes to his conclusions are vague at best.

An absolute waste of money.

First off, Amazon's price of $17.95 for the paperback version of "Babylonian Life and History" is $10.00 more than I paid for the Barnes & Noble Books' publication at Barnes & Noble Bookstore today, July 4, 2006.

Secondly, I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book, written as a first hand account in 1923 by Sir E.A. Wallis Budge, noted British scholar of Egyptian, Ethiopian and Mesopotamian hieroglyphics, languages and history who collected for the British Museum. The book is rife with illustrations, maps, drawings, photographs and Sumerian hieroglyphics.
