The Ancient Egyptian Pyramid Texts
 By - R O Faulkner
The "Pyramid Texts", which were carved on the walls of the pyramids of the kings of the Fifth and Sixth Dynasties to guide the dead king through the Netherworld and protect his welfare there, constitute the oldest corpus of religious and funerary texts and, as such are, of fundamental importance for the students of Egyptian religion. This translation, completed in 1969 by a leading authority on these texts, is one of the most accessible, scholarly and complete available, and this reprint should be useful not only to Egyptologists but also to those interested in the history of religion and the occult.

Fingerprints of the Gods - 2001 edition
 By - Graham Hancock
The author has a highly controversial view of history and his theory of a mysterious, lost civilization that brought knowledge to other people around the world, has attracted a wide audience. In this new large-format edition, Hancock responds to critics and brings readers up to date with developments in the debate. He exposes the eerie network of connections between: the Great Sphinx and pyramids of Egypt; the Andean temples of Tianhuanaco; the Mexican pyramids of the Sun and Moon; the lost continent that lies beneath Antarctica; ancient knowledge of spherical geometry and astro-navigation; the myths and legends of humanity that have remained strangely consistent across geographical and social divides; and new theories concerning the causes of the ice ages. His new evidence suggests not only the "fingerprints" of an unknown civilization that flourished during the last ice age but also horrifying conclusions about the type and extent of planetary catastrophe required to obliterate almost all traces of it. Included are the BBC transcripts to the "Horizon" TV documentary.

Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings
 By - Charles Hapgood
Charles Hapgood's classic book on ancient maps produces evidence of an advanced world-wide civilization existing many thousands of years before ancient Egypt. He has found the evidence in the Piri Reis Map that shows Antarctica, the Hadji Ahmed map, the Oronteus Finaeus and other amazing maps. Hapgood concluded that these maps were made from more ancient maps from the various ancient archives around the world, now lost. Not only were these unknown people more advanced in mapmaking than any other prior to the 18th century, it appears they mapped all the continents. The Americas were mapped thousands of years before Columbus and Antarctica was mapped once its coasts were free of ice.
Paperback


The Chinese Roswell
 By - Hartwig Housdorf
Like his predecessor, Heinrich Harrer, who spent seven years in Tibet, Hartwig Hausdorf has ventured, virtually on foot, over many of the sacred places of the Far East. But his aim has been not to discover his own soul, but rather to uncover tell-tale traces of an Alien Mind which may have passed that way millennia ago, and may be passing by again. He has sought out the fabled, forbidden 1,000-foot White Pyramid of Xian. In so doing, he has stumbled upon the key to the ancient Chinese dream of material immortality, a dream inspired by Alien Mind, and a key hidden in the fabulous, mercury-filled tomb-chamber of the Emperor Shi Huangdi--a tomb-chamber the excavation of which the Chinese government has kept secret from the West. He has unearthed new facts about the mysterious stone disks of Bayan Kara Ula, which some believe tell the story of a forced alien landing 12,000 years ago. And he has discerned, in the prodigious mind-over-matter techniques of the Tibetans, the Ch! inese and the Japanese, the faintest whispers, still audible over the vast gulf of time, of an awesome encounter which may have taken place on the sacred peak of Mount Meru in the very beginning of time.
Paperback

The Great Pyramid Decoded
 By - Peter Lemesurier
For over 40 centuries, the Great Pyramid of Giza has baffled mankind as to its purpose. This book suggests that the design of the pyramid derives from a simple number code. When the pyramid is "decoded", the message that unfolds seems to be a blueprint for mankind that can be compared with the more recent prophecies of St Malachy, Nostradamus, Edgar Cayce and others. The author has also uncovered links between the pyramid's picture of Man's place in the universe and the religious traditions of Egypt, Palestine, India, and even Central America.

The Stargate Conspiracy
 By - Lynn Picknett & Clive Prince
Picknett and Prince, who have written their own share of such books (In His Own Image: The Story of the Turin Shroud and The Templar Revelation: Secret Guardians of the True Identity of Christ) now take their turn at debunking books on the pyramids, early extraterrestrial contact with mankind, the "Face" and "pyramids" on Mars, and the claimed significance of the year 10,500 BC. Graham Hancock, Robert Bauval and Robert Temple come in for particular criticism, with Picknett and Prince pointing out some of their factual errors as well as examples of sloppy logical progression in their arguments.
Hardback Paperback


A Test of Time
 By - David Rohl
It has long been believed that the great historical events described in the Old Testament were mythological; the accepted chronology of the region does not tally with archaeological discoveries. Through a revision of the master chronology of the ancient world, David Rohl attempts to prove that the events of the Bible really did happen as recorded in the Books of Genesis, Exodus, Judges, Samuel, Kings and Chronicles. Many of the conundrums of the past are explained, and legendary figures such as Joseph, Moses, David and Solomon find their true political setting and some of their archaeological remains are discovered.

From Atlantis to the Sphinx
 By - Colin Wilson
Colin Wilson believes that thousands of years before ancient Egypt and Greece became powerful, there was a great civilization whose ships travelled the world. Whereas we have no way of viewing the universe as a whole, these "old ones" possessed a knowledge system that offered a unified view of the universe, which was then passed on to descendants who escaped to Egypt and South America. It was this knowledge system - alien to modern man - that enabled them to move stones weighing a thousand tons. In this exploration of the remote depths of history, Wilson sets out to reconstruct that ancient knowledge. He attempts to understand how the long-forgotten people thought, felt and communicated on a universal plane.
Paperback


The Atlantis Blueprint
 By - Rand Flem-Ath   Colin Wilson
The Atlantis Blueprint ends with a question--is there a city beneath the ice of Antarctica? In fact, the book is a mystery-fest, linking a host of popular enigmas to the theory that civilisation is thousands, perhaps tens of thousands, of years older than we think. It proposes the existence of an antediluvian world-wide maritime civilisation whose blueprint left a legacy of specially positioned sacred sites around the world and whose centre, Atlantis, may be in Antarctica due to earth crust displacement.
