Alexander the Great: Murder in Babylon
Phillips, Graham
ISBN: 0753510081
Virgin Books London, United Kingdom 2005 
 Soft Cover New book, 277 pages. Alexander the Great created the largest empire the world had ever known. On June 323 BC, in the anceint city of Babylon, at the very height of his power, he died suddenly of a mysterious illness at the age of 33. For centuries scholars have debated what really killed history's most successful soldier. Ancient sources record every detail of Alexander's strange and shocking demise - but the cause of death has never been established. Now with the help of the Los Angeles Police Department and scientists at the University of Southern California, Graham Phillips reveals compelling forensic evidence that Alexander the Great was actually poisoned by a member of his court. Recreating the scene of the crime to reveal eight suspects, each with the motive and opportunity to have assassinated the king, Graham Phillips uncovers a maze of intrigue, power play and romantic tragedy that led inevitably towards Alexander's death. Untimately, in a dramatic twist in the tale, the murderer finally unveiled.  As New

Ancient Lives: The Story of the Pharaohs' Tombmakers
Romer, John
ISBN: 1842120441
Phoenix Press United Kingdom 2003 
 Soft Cover New book, 235 pages. More than 3000 years ago a village was established on the west bank of the Nile. Situated amid a barren and arid landscape, it housed the workers who created the tombs of the Pharaohs in the Valley of the Kings. Stonemasons, painters sculptors, quarrymen and scribes lived with their wives and children in the village, and worked closely together in the sacred valley. Through excavation and the study of ancient texts, the author has recreated the villagers lives in intimate detail. He tells us of their quarrels and rivalries, sickness and health, marriages and deaths, of the effects of flood, pillage and war. This is a fascinating account of the day to day lives and thoughts of ordinary people who created some of ancient Egypt's finest treasures.   As New

Boudica: A Groundbreaking Biography of the True Warrior Queen
Collingridge, Vanessa
ISBN: 0091898196
Ebury Press  2005 
 Hard Cover New book, 390 pages. The Queen of Iceni has been immortalised as the woman who dared to take on the Romans to avenge her daughters, her tribe and her enslaved country. Her infamy rests not only on the fact that she almost drove the Romans out of Britain; her legend became the reference point for any woman in power - from Elizabeth I to Margaret Thatcher. Yet along the way, the real story behind this historical icon was lost, until now. Combining new research and recent archaeological discoveries, Vanessa Collingridge has written a major new biography on this shadowy and often misunderstood figure of ancient history who still captures our imagination today.  As New/As New

Cleopatra & Antony: The Truth Behind one of the Greatest Love Stories of History
Preston, Diana
ISBN: 9780385612456
Doubleday  2008 
 Hard Cover New book, 398 pages. In 44 BC, Julius Caesar was murdered on the Ides of March. His mistress, Cleopatra of Egypt, fled back to Alexandria with their little son. Mark Antony, Caesar's friend and henchman who, according to some accounts, was already besotted with the beautiful Cleopatra, took up her son's case before the Senate. But they refused to recognise him as one of Caesar's heirs. Civil war broke out, and after the defeat of Caesar's murderers Antony took control over the East. Summoned to his headquarters in present-day Turkey. Cleopatra made her entry at dusk on a scented, candlelit barge: and so began one of the greatest love stories of all time - an eleven year love affair that created the ancient world's most famous celebrity couple. The affair became all consuming and fired the lovers with the ambition to create a new order. Had they succeeded, our world today might have been very different.  As New/As New

Daily Life of the Etruscans
Heurgon, Jacques
ISBN: 1842125923
Phoenix Press United Kingdom 2002 
 Soft Cover New book, 308 pages. On the evidence of their brilliantly evocative wall paintings, terracottas, bronzes and jewellery, the Etruscans appear to have had a tremendous zest for life with a fondness for dancing, horse-racing, every form of musical activity and sooth saying. The most remarkable inhabitants of early Italy, their kings held sway in Rome for more than a hundred and fifty years. But after the expulsion of the Tarquins at the end of the sixth century BC they began to lose ground to the Romans and their distinctive culture was gradually absorbed into the pan-Italic civilization that Rome established. Professor Heurgon, one of the world's leading authorities on the Etruscans, combines the fruit of moder archaeology with a frech analysis of the literary evidence to reconstruct the lives of the Etruscans.  As New

Then, in the late eighteenth century, Napoleon's invasion of the country sparked an explosion of interest in ancient Egypt that has burned strongly ever since. The obsesion with anything and everything Egyptian has inspired many to dedicate their lives to the search for treasure in Egypt's sands. From the nail biting race to crack the hieroglyphic code to Howard Carter's dramatic discovery of the golden treasures in Tuankhamen's tomb, this book bring you the excitement, emotion and intrigue of the Egyptologist.  As New/As New

Egyptian Painting and Relief
Robins, Gay
ISBN: 9780852637890
Shire Books  2008 
 Soft Cover New book, 64 pages. The artists of Ancient Egypt reached a level of sophistication and technical mastery unsurpassed by other early peoples. They perfected a style which was less naturalistic than that later employed by the Greeks and Romans but which is particularly fascinating to the modern eye because of its combination of realistic and symbolic elements. This book aims to help the reader to such an understanding, concentrating particularly on points that may puzzle the modern western viewer. The principles of representation underlying Egyptian art, which differ fundamentally from western conventions rooted in perspective, are elucidated and the materials and methods used by the artists described. Of great importance was the technique of drawing a squared grid over the surface to be decorated, and the use of this grid system as an aid for obtaining correct proportions is explained, together with its influence on the composition of whole scenes. A chapter is devoted to the fascinating and highly individual work produced during the reign of the heretic king Akhenaten.   As New

Prehistoric Henges
Burl, Aubrey
ISBN: 9780747801238
Shire Books  2008 
 Soft Cover New book, 64 pages. Stonehenge is just one of almost a hundred vast circular earthworks built in the British Isles over four thousand years ago. Known as henges, they remain one of the mysteries of prehistoric Britain. Unlike stone circles, which are their counterparts in the west, henges have generally been ignored. With their overgrown banks and weathered ditches they attract few visitors. Yet discoveries have revealed fascinating glimpses of the beliefs of their builders. Excavations have unearthed grim evidence of forgotten rituals: a child’s sacrifice at Woodhenge; a human burial at the centre of Arbor Low; a woman’s skull at the entrance to Gorsey Bigbury; winter moonlight at Stonehenge. Such things hint at the power and importance that these huge enclosures once had. The effort needed to raise these spacious rings of earth or chalk, the careful planning of their entrances, the settings of stone or timber inside them and the avenues leading uphill from nearby rivers all make henges among the most exciting and intriguing of the ancient monuments of the British Isles.   As New

Roman Baths in Britain
Rook, Tony
ISBN: 9780747801573
Shire Books  2002 
 Soft Cover New book, 64 pages. Almost every Roman site in Britain seems to have had its baths. They needed to be strongly built and to a large extent were constructed below contemporary ground level. As a result the remains of Roman baths have resisted demolition and damage by the plough. We can easily imagine how, and in what environment, the Romans and their slaves bathed. Bathing establishments are easily recognised, as are th materials used in their construction. The purpose of this book is to explain how Roman baths came to be built, how they were constructed, how they were used, and how they worked.   As New

Constable and Robinson London, United Kingdom 2003 
 Soft Cover New book, 260 pages. The boy king Tutankhamun came to the throne during one of the most turbulent periods of Egyptian history, a time when religious dissent threatened to sever the unity built up by a line of war like pharaohs and even to shatter a far-flung empire. Was he secretly assassinated by the powerful cartel that ran the court and the country? What exactly was the role of the powerful first minister Ay? Could he have murdered his young charge in order to wear the Imperial crown himself? Since the discovery of Tutankamun's tomb in the early 1920's, the story of this young Pharaoh who died so precipitately has fascinated archaeologists and historians.  As New

The Nature of Alexander the Great
Renault, Mary
ISBN: 014139076X
Penguin Books Canada, Limited Toronto, ON, Canada 2001 
 Soft Cover New book, 240 pages. King of Macedonia before he was twenty, Alexander went on to become the greatest conqueror of the ancient world, inspiring legends in his his lifetime and after his death. Every age has interpreted him to suit their own values; either as a ruthless destroyer who eliminated all who stood in his path, or as a far-sighted statesman pursuing a civilizing mission for the world. He has been condemned for sins that in his time were merits and credited with romantic nineteenth-century virtues which his own culture despised. After years of studying the Hellenistic world, this book peels off the layers of wishful thinking to reveal the real Alexander beneath. Re-examining the crucial episodes in his life: the murder of his father, Philip, in which he was implicated, the sacking of Thebes and his dying wishes, this enjoyable and wonderfully illustrated study places him in the rightful context of his times.   As New

The Roman Army: the Civil Wars 88-31 BC
Fields, Nic
ISBN: 9781846032622
Osprey Pub Co  2008 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, BTO34. The Roman Legions were the most highly organized troops of the ancient world, but the process of turning the Legions from what was essentially a part-time citizen militia into the professional force that first made Rome the dominant power in the Mediterranean and then built an empire that stretched across the known world, was no small feat. Focusing on the organizational changes in the Roman Army during the Civil Wars, Nic Fields examines the role played by Caius Marius and his far-reaching reforms, which included having professional volunteers from the lowest social class enter the army in search of the possibility of plunder. He goes on to examine the consequences of encouraging these soldiers to follow their commanders without question, which broke the allegiance of the army to the Roman state, a trend that gave rise to militarily ambitious men such as Sulla, Pompeius, Caesar, Antonius, and Octavian. With the nuts and bolts detail that readers demand from the Battle Orders series, this is an intriguing description of how the Roman army grew, modernized, rebelled and finally helped build an empire, complete with full organizational charts, photographs and detailed maps. Contents: Introduction - Roman military organization - Weapons and equipment - Command and control - The Roman Army in battle - Engineering - The civil wars - Poets, propaganda and absolute power - Chronology - Ancient authors - The Altar of Domitius Ahenobarbus - Bibliography - Glossary - Legionary titles - Index.  As New

The Secrets of Judas : The Story of the Misunderstood Disciple and His Lost Gospel
Robinson, James McConkey
ISBN: 9780061170638
Harper Collins  2006 
 Hard Cover New book, 192 pages. The discovery of the previously lost Gospel of Judas Iscariot has electrified the Christian community. What Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John tell us about Judas, the disciple who betrayed Jesus, is inconsistent and biased. Therefore, the revelation of an ancient gospel that portrays this despised man as someone who saw his role in the Passion of Christ as integral to a large plan - a divine plan - brings new clarity to the old story. If Judas had not betrayed Jesus, Jesus would not have handed over to the authorities, crucified, buried, and raised from the dead. Could it be that without Judas, the Easter miracle would never have happened? In this book, James M. Robinson, an expert historian of early Christianity, examines the Bible and other ancient texts and reveals what we can and cannot know about the life of the historical Judas, his role in Jesus's crucifixion, and whether the Christian church should reevaluate his intentions and possible innocence. Robinson tells the sensational story of the discovery of the gospel attributed to Judas, and shows how this affects Judas's newfound meaning for history and the Christian faith.  As New/As New

The Tutankhamun Deception
O'Farrell, Gerald
ISBN: 0330444905
Pan Books London 2002 
 Soft Cover New book, 234 pages. The discovery and excavation of Tutankhamun's tomb is one of the most famous archeological finds in history. But compelling evidence suggests that the story we know is a sham: Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon actually discovered the tomb several years before they told the world they did, resealed it, then led the world's media back to the site to claim their place in history. This is the astonishing story of the skulduggery that went on in the Valley of the Kings between the wars and how the famous Mummy's Curse, far from being a something mystical, could well have been a systematic way of getting rid of those who were about to blow the cover on the secret.  As New

Penguin Books Canada, Limited Toronto, ON, Canada 2000 
 Soft Cover New book, 273 pages. The Twelve Caesars of Suetonius (born AD 69), covering the Roman rulers from Julius Caesar to Domitian, remains one of the most fascinating of all Latin histories. As a one time personal secretary to the Emperor Hadrian, Suetonius had access to the Imperial and Senatorial archives; he also gathered much of his information from eye witnesses,, checking his facts carefully and quoting conflicting evidence without bias. But his history is also the raciest and most vivid account we have of the scandalous and amusing incidents in the domestic lives of the first Caesars.   Very Good
