Depending on the star�s size and the resulting temperatures and pressures, various larger elemental nuclei can be produced.� Iron is the heaviest element created during a large star�s primary fusion process.� Nuclei larger than the simplest hydrogen nucleus contain neutrons as well as protons.� As the name implies, neutrons have no net electric charge, but have about the same mass as a proton (an electron has less than a thousandth the mass of a proton, so virtually all the mass in atoms is provided by its protons and neutrons).� Radioactive decay into daughter isotopes is mediated by the weak nuclear force The Conquest of History: Spanish Colonialism and National Histories in the Nineteenth Century (Pitt Latin American Series).

Although Afr ica did not lose its megafauna as Australia and the Americas did, visitors to North Africa today from 10,000 years ago would be amazed, and not just because of modern civilization, but because of all the megafauna that disappeared from North Africa and how desert-like the environment became.� Before Egyptian civilization arose, the Nile valley hosted nearly the full complement of iconic African megafauna, with elephants, hippos, lions, rhinos, giraffes, and many others, and a staggering abundance of waterfowl lived in the Nile valley and on its delta. �That early graveyard of slaughtered humans (which was only discovered because the dammed Nile would soon sink it), was on the Nile�s banks, so humans had been fighting over the Nile�s resources for many millennia when civilization appeared there.� Migrants from the Fertile Crescent began settling in the Nile valley beginning about 6000 BCE, not long before �atal H�y�k and Jordan Valley settlements were abandoned.� Around 3600 BCE, the Nile�s villages began their rise to civilization, and about 3100 BCE the first polity that controlled Upper and Lower Egypt appeared and dynastic rule began .� Gold was mined for the first time on Earth on an industrial scale, and Egypt set the standard for labor brutality in gold mining, not pyramid building.� In one of many juxtapositions of the �divine� and profane that would be seen in subsequent civilizations, gold was a sacred metal in Egypt, and pharaohs were literally depicted as sons of the solar deity Ra .� A pha raoh�s primary �job� was interceding with the gods to ensure a proper annual Nile flood.� When the floods failed, so did the peasantry�s faith in the nobility, and droughts brought an end to pharaonic dynasties; subsequent rulers were more modest about their divine abilities to affect the Nile�s annual flood. [662] By the e nd of the Old Kingdom around 2200 BCE, elephants, rhinos, wild camels, and giraffes were locally extinct in the Nile valley or on the brink of it. [663] � Old Kingdom ships sailed to Lebanon to raze their trees by 2650 BCE, which was a century before the Great Pyramid of Giza was built .� Slaves do not seem to have built the pyramids, but mainly agricultural workers working for a wage during the off-season.� The entire Giza complex was built in about a century and remains the ultimate elite-aggrandizing monumental architecture.� It has been estimated that all the energy of Egypt�s agricultural surplus for a century was devoted to building the complex at Giza. [664] � Ancient E gypt reached the height of its power during the reign of Amenhotep III in about 1350 BCE.� Amenhotep III claimed that he personally killed 102 lions; hunting lions was the ultimate sport of pharaohs, after playing with their harems. � Tutankhamun, the pharaoh with the resplendent tomb, ruled a generation after Amenhotep III.� The lives of thousands of slaves paid for the solid gold coffin and the mask of Tutankhamun�s mummy. (Source: Wikimedia Commons) Nubian gold mines were filled with the skeletons of dead miners.� Nobody survived mining for the pharaohs; they were uniformly worked to death, whether they were men, women, children, elderly, or disabled, and an endless supply of new slaves replaced the dead ones. [665] � The Incas had a Sun god religion, and gold became a sacred metal reserved for royalty (and silver was sacred and represented the Moon, which Incan royalty also claimed descent from ), but they did not work people to death to obtain it. [666] � A great deal of Nubian gold ended up in royal tombs, to be looted after the New Kingdom collapsed after the Twentieth Dynasty in about 1060 BCE Sources of Chinese Tradition: Vol. I and II.
