3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What was it like to live as a queen in ancient Egypt, or as an Amazon warrior in western Africa? African Princess tells the stories of six remarkable royal women and the eras in which they lived, from 1473 B.C. to the present. Some lived in great luxury; others lived in exile as freedom fighters. The rise of the slave trade and the arrival of European colonists unsettled the entire continent and forced rulers to find ways to govern and protect their kingdoms. Consequently, many of these royal women ruled in extremely difficult times, marked by palace intrigue, foreign invasion, and harrowing adventure. Richly illustrated with portraits and archival material, African Princess reveals the lives of these powerful women to be as complex, rich, and intriguing as Africa itself

Ismannen by Shelley Tanaka( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in Norwegian and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fortellingen om Ismannen er historien om den eldste og best bevarte menneskekroppen som noen gang er funnet. Det er over 5300 år siden Ismannen levde, og da han døde ble kroppen og eiendelene hans gjemt og bevart under en isbre, for å bli funnet av to fotturister i en helt annen tidsalder. Bokaer delt inn i tre deler: den første omhandler selve funnet og arbeidet med åstadfeste hvor gammel Ismannen virkelig var. Del to er en oppdiktet historiehvor man ut i fra mannens eiendeler, klesdrakt osv. har tenkt seg hvordan han kunne ha levd og hvordan omstendighetene kunne ha vært rundt hans død. Parallelt følger en del faktaopplysninger om det vi vet om tiden han levde i. Den siste delen forteller om hvordan vitenskapen prøver å ta vare på kroppen og eiendelene for å finne ut hva nytt han kan fortelle oss om samtiden sin. Dette er en fascinerende historie, skrevet i et lett språk, der blandingen av fag og fiksjon fungerer godt for å levendegjøre stoffet. Faktadelen er illustrert med fotografier og instruktive tegninger utført i tusj og akvarell, mens fortellingen er illustrert med tegninger og oljekritt. Bakerst fins det tidstavle, ordforklaringer og en kort litteraturliste. Cappelen, 1997
