I think it was reading Gods, Graves, & Scholars by C W Ceram that gave me an interest in archaeology. I recently reread it and it is still a terrifically entertaining history of archaeology.
I can’t think of a more appropriately named author than P V Glob for The Bog People.
The Piltdown Men relates to a famous archaeological fraud. And The End of Atlantis by J V Luce
Another book on Atlantis or Mu as it was sometimes called in the 1970s. Also Pauwells & Berger’s The Dawn of Magic.
Proof copies of The Masks of God by Joseph Campbell, rather the worst for wear.
And finally –The Spanish Conquistadors by F A Kirkpatrick
Next – miscellaneous non fiction
