Archaeology, History and Mythology

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
