Meini Hirion and the Sarns of Anglesey

Meini Hirion and the Sarns of Anglesey - William Evans

Anglesey has far more than its fair share of standing stones, in keeping with the large quantity of archaeological sites on the island. Most of these are large solitary stones, mainly of Bronze origin although are some that were erected recently.Since very early times man has puzzled over the reasons for their existence, and many theories have been put forward. generally these have been that they were great places of importance to the people of the time, possibly of "religious" significance. Dr. William Evans noticed that there was a pattern to their layout on Anglesey.

The Serpent Grail: The Truth Behind the Holy Grail, the Philosopher's Stone and the Elixir of Life

The Serpent Grail: The Truth Behind the Holy Grail, the Philosopher's Stone and the Elixir of Life - Philip Gardiner, Gary Osborn

The truth has been buried for hundreds of years beneath myth, symbolism, and propaganda?but it finally comes to light in these pages and can no longer be denied. This is the story of an extraordinary journey of discovery that uncovers the existence of a serpent-worshipping cult that thrived throughout the world in ancient times and whose influences have permeated all the major religions. The cult?s central rite involved mixing together snake blood and venom in a ceremonial bowl, forging a powerful healing elixir?and the evidence shows that this ritual holds the key to solving such enigmatic mysteries as the Holy Grail, Elixir of Life, Philosopher?s Stone, and the lost city of Atlantis. It's nothing less than a radical reinterpretation of world history.

Greek and Roman Warfare: Battle, Tactics and Trickery - John Drogo Montagu

Greek and Roman Warfare: Battle, Tactics and Trickery - John Drogo Montagu

A uniquely detailed work which explores the tactics and battle strategies of the Graeco-Roman period. This incisive study goes beyond the arms and armour to reveal the psychology behind history's most emblematic battles. The technology of an army is of course an important factor in its success, but battles are ultimately won by tactics and strategy. From the cunning ambush to oxen with torches masquerading as an escaping army at night, Drogo Montagu explores the intricacies of waging war in the ancient world. Using his extensive knowledge of Graeco-Roman military history, he has created a gripping account of classical military thought.

This lavishly illustrated book conveys the wonder of Ancient Egypt through the daily activities of its people - not the lives of Egypt's royalty or elite classes, but the typical men and women who composed this magnificent civilization.

A particular strength is the coverage of anatomical material and medical texts.

The Cygnus Mystery

The Cygnus Mystery: Unlocking the Ancient Secret of Life's Origins in the Cosmos - Andrew Collins

It was a universal belief in ancient civilizations that life came originally from the cosmos and ultimately would return there after death. The shamanic journey was always to this sky-world - and it appears that it was always located in the direction of the stars of Cygnus - also known as the Northern Cross - and was accessed either via the Milky Way or an imagined cosmic axis. Andrew Collins has found that this ancient belief is based on an early astronomy which is about 17,000 years old.

A Brief History of Stonehenge

Paperback, 320 pages, Robinson Publishing, 2007

This is a complete new history of the world's greatest stone circle. Britain's leading expert on stone circles turns his attention to the greatest example of them all - Stonehenge. Every aspect of Stonehenge is re-considered in Aubrey Burl's new analysis. He explains for the first time how the outlying Heel Stone long predates Stonehenge itself, serving as a trackway marker in the prehistoric Harroway. He uncovers new evidence that the Welsh bluestones were brought to Stonehenge by glaciation rather than by man. And he reveals just how far the design of Stonehenge was influenced by Breton styles and by Breton cults of the dead.

Stonehenge: The Secret of the Solstice

Stonehenge: The Secret of the Solstice - Terence Meaden

Looking at known facts of archaeology, science and ancient religion, the author explains these mysteries in terms of the universally-adored, world-renewal fertility/creation myth called the Sacred Marriage or The Marriage of the Gods; for this inspired the device by which the cosmic fertilisation of a female deity on Earth was achieved by visible revelation, the midsummer mating of the rising sun (via its radiant light) with a female standing stone (mis-named the Altar Stone at Stonehenge) inside a womb-like setting of stones.

Discovering a Welsh Landscape: Archaeology in the Clwydian Range

Discovering a Welsh Landscape: Archaeology in the Clwydian Range - Ian Brown (Author), Mick Sharp and Jean Williamson (Photography)

Part of the Landscapes of Britain series. In the far north-east corner of Wales, a line of hills looks east across the plain into England, guarding the way towards Snowdonia. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Clwydian Range has a very rich archaeology. This beautifully illustrated book tells the story of this landscape: a history of Wales in microcosm. At the northern end of the Welsh March, the Clwydian Range is a crossroads, a place where outside influences have always been profound. The book consequently places the Range's archaeology in the context of the broader themes in Welsh and British history. Througout, the photographs capture the spirit of Hopkins' original "landscape plotted and pieced."

The Lockington Gold Hoard

The Lockington Gold Hoard: An Early Bronze Age Barrow Cemetery at Lockington, Leicestershire edited by Gwilym Hughes

Paperback - 128 pages, Oxbow Books, 2000

This report details the results of excavations within an early Bronze Age barrow cemetery in 1994. The barrow provided a rare opportunity for examining in detail Bronze Age funerary practices and associated ritual activity in a lowland context in the English Midlands. In addition, a rich group of metalwork finds was discovered - two gold armlets and a copper dagger. The evidence at Lockington poses some interesting questions - why were there grazing animals in the palisaded enclosure immediately before the construction of the mound? and why was there no body with the deposit? The authors offer answers to these questions and discuss the barrow in a regional context.
