QuoteFor the ancient Egyptians, it may have served as the north star. About 4,700 years ago, when the Egyptians were building the earliest pyramids, Thuban was likely the axis around which all the other stars appeared to spin at night. Some researchers think the

The Book of Two Ways, considered as part of the larger cannon of Coffin Texts, is dated to the Middle Kingdom and is a precursor to the later Book of the Dead. It is an illustrated road map and plan for the deceased to navigate the underworld so that they might successfully reach Rostau-the realm of Osiris.
