Taureans, ever wondered what the Sun-signs tell you about love and life? This unique anthology of poems for love and life relates directly to your Sun-sign, Taurus. If you were born between the 21st of April and the 21st of May, you will relate to many of the themes identified with your sign's characteristics and personality traits. The poems in this collection have been chosen because they reflect a Taurean attitude to life. They appeal to the interests 'ruled' by your sign; the animals, flowers, trees, plants and places celebrated by the poets and associated with the sign of Taurus over three thousand years of traditional astrology. Some have been chosen simply because we believe you will enjoy them, and that they will awaken or re-awaken your love of poetry.

This collection of essays presents a synthesis of current research on the Oxus Civilization, which rose and developed at the turn of the 3rd to 2nd millennia BC in Central Asia. First discovered in the 1970s, the Oxus Civilization, or the Bactria–Margiana Archaeological Complex (BMAC), has engendered many different interpretations, which are explored in this volume by an international group of archaeologists and researchers. Contributors cover all aspects of this fascinating Bronze Age culture: architecture; material culture; grave goods; religion; migrations; and trade and interactions with neighboring civilizations, from Mesopotamia to the Indus, and the Gulf to the northern steppes. Chapters also examine the Oxus Civilization’s roots in previous local cultures, explore its environmental and chronological context, or the possibly coveted metal sources, and look into the reasons for its decline. The World of the Oxus Civilization offers a broad and fascinating examination of this society, and provides an invaluable updated resource for anyone working on the culture, history, and archaeology of this region and on the multiple interactions at work at that time in the ancient Near East.
