Product Description
The twelfth annual Current Research in Egyptology symposium aimed to highlight the multidisciplinary nature of the field of Egyptology. Papers in these proceedings reflect this multidisciplinarity, with research based on Archaeology, Linguistics, Cultural Astronomy, Historiography, Botany, Religion and Law, amongst others. By means of one or several of these disciplines, contributors to this volume approach a broad range of subjects spanning from Prehistory to modern Egypt, including: self-presentation, identity, provenance and museum studies, funerary art and practices, domestic architecture, material culture, mythology, religion, commerce, economy, dream interpretation and the birth of Egyptology as a discipline.
Product Description
Author John Andrews described his early childhood as growing up with the remnants of Amador s early history around him, as he herded cattle in Lancha Plana and Campo Seco. By the time he was 15, he was becoming aware of the ephemeral and fleeting nature of historic buildings, places and old town sites.

Many years later, he would write about the DeAugostine Flour Mill at Pokerville, built in the late 1860s or early 1870s. It was still standing when the 15-year old explored the building in 1914, but was gone by 1916 or 1917. He had studied the flour mill so closely that he would later describe the carpentry of the structure as built with timbers, broadaxed and square fitted with mortis, tenon and hardwood pegs. It is not just the old method of construction; it is the best.

At the time Andrews arrived in Musicdale, located on the Amador side of the Cosumnes River. He would later describe it as "There is nothing written of it as it only survives in the remembrance of old timers."

The earliest miners were from Missouri mostly from Pike County. Some old dwellings still housed inhabitants until just before the war, in pre-1914 days. There was one old man still living there, a Frenchman called Mr. Lafferty. But young Andrews was learning to observe, as he saw the old man write his name as Labarde. This tiny village of Musicdale was between today s Latrobe Road and Highway 49.

He often wrote in frustration, as when he tells of a two-story building said to have been a stage stop, still standing in the late 1940s in a location known as Live Oak on the Carbondale-Plymouth Road. The next time he visited, he found that "Imbeciles and half-wits in a stupid search for treasure, tore the second story floor joists away and brought the whole thing down in a complete ruin."

Occasionally, he would have tantalizing thoughts, wondering about the little town of Live Oak and how it came to be, and suggesting it was "...a fine subject for additional research."

Today, many of those town sites he visited such as Lancha Plana are known mainly to fishermen as a location on the waters of Lake Camanche. Butte City is the location of a singular, sentinel stone building which "...had the misfortune to be right at the edge of Highway 49 and thus subject to the tender mercy of Swinus Americanus." Carbondale is a flat spot on the Carbondale-Plymouth Road, and what was once Muletown is now located close to a state prison on Mule Creek.

He had a visual way of describing the color and the crowds of people that makes the reader also "see" through his eyes. In 1967, after traveling around the county, he lamented that "Our once delightful countryside is rapidly deteriorating into God s own junkyard."

Serendipitously, Volcano Press discovered the existing illustrations of Amador County native and superlative artist Robert Richards.

Using Andrews book, Richards had visited and sketched these locations over the years. Thus, the alchemy of Andrews text and these fine line drawings evolved.

Richards also contributed many anecdotes to this edition of Ghost Towns of Amador.

Located on the western slope of California s Sierra Nevada mountains, the importance of Amador County during the Gold Rush era cannot be overstated. Millions of dollars of gold were mined during the lat

Real Monarchs SLC add two new players, release two others

The loan of Amet Ramirez , a forward who made 8 appearances on the wing for the Monarchs toward the end of the 2016 season, has been terminated by mutual agreement. He has already returned to his former club, Plaza Amador in Panama. Charles Boateng , another forward, whose loan from the West African Football Academy in the Ghanian First Capital Plus Bank Premier League was announced early in January of 2017, failed his physical with the Monarchs and his loan has been terminated. Michael Gallagher , a 22 year-old graduate of the University of Washington who spent the 2016 season with Portland Timbers 2 in the USL, has been signed by the Monarchs for the 2017 season. While with Timbers 2 Gallagher made 21 starts primarily as a left center back, but did not see the field for the final month and a half of the season. If his name sounds familiar to Monarchs fans, it is probably in connection with the 13th minute goal scored by Mikey Orellana in the August 17th game against Timbers 2 at the RioT. Emmanuel Ocran , a 20-year Ghana, who recently received a call up for the Ghanian national team during qualifying for the African Cup of Nations, was also signed by the Monarchs. During 2016, Ocran made 19 starts for the 2016 champions WA All-Stars of the Ghanian First Capital Plus Bank Premier League and scored two goals as a winger. This leaves the Monarchs with 14 signed players. Seven of those players, Max Lachowecki, Emilio Orozco, Nick Besler, Charlie Adams, Andrew Brody, Daniel Haber, and Chandler Hoffman have been with the parent club in Portland while the remaining players have opened camp under new head coach Mike...
