LOST COLONIES OF ANCIENT AMERICA
A Comprehensive Guide to the Pre-Columbian Visitors Who Really Discovered America
Frank Joseph

Was America truly unknown to the outside world until Christopher Columbus “discovered” it in 1492?
Could a people gifted enough to raise the Great Pyramid more than four thousand years ago have lacked the skills necessary to build a ship capable of crossing the Atlantic?
Did the Phoenicians, who circumnavigated the African continent in 600 BC, never consider sailing farther?
Were the Vikings, the most fearless warriors and seafarers of all time, terrified at the prospect of a transoceanic voyage?
If so, how are we to account for an Egyptian temple accidentally unearthed by Tennessee Valley Authority workers in 1935? What is a beautifully crafted metal plate with the image of a Phoenician woman doing in the Utah desert? And who can explain the discovery of Viking houses and wharves excavated outside Boston?
These enigmas are but a tiny fraction of the abundant physical proof for Old World visitors to the American continent hundreds and thousands of years ago. In addition, Sumerians, Minoans, Romans, Celts, ancient Hebrews, Indonesians, Africans, Chinese, Japanese, Welsh, Irish and the Knights Templar all made their indelible, if neglected, mark on American land.
Unlike any other book on the subject, THE LOST COLONIES OF ANCIENT AMERICA not only describes each of these various peoples who influenced pre-Columbian history, but it, also, offers fresh evidence demonstrating the extent of their impact on the American continent.

LOST KEYS OF FREEMASONRY £15.99
LOST KEYS OF FREEMASONRY

Manly P Hall

Freemasonry is the subject of perennial fascination - recently the cover story of a national newsmagazine, the premise of the movie National Treasure and the anticipated basis of a forthcoming novel by Dan Brown. The twentieth century's great scholar of occult and esoteric ideas, Manly P. Hall, was a Mason himself and nurtured a lifelong interest in the secret fraternal order, making it the focus of one of his earliest and best-loved books, THE LOST KEYS OF FREEMASONRY. In this celebrated work, he examines the ethical training required of a Freemason and the character traits a Mason must "build" within himself. Hall's 1923 volume is now reset and made available exclusively in this new edition, along with the author's two further classics on Masonry:-

- Freemasonry of the Ancient Egyptians (1937), which explores the roots of Freemasonry in the initiatory temple rites of Pharaonic Egypt
- Masonic Orders of Fraternity (1950), a fascinating work of short history that chronicles the re-emergence of Freemasonry in Europe in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. It surveys the lives of Masonry's modern architects and the secretive organizations that immediately preceded the brotherhood.

This three-in-one volume features the original illustrations of each book, a total of nearly thirty images, including recreations of scenes and rites from Masonry's unusual history. It also includes a new index encompassing all three titles.

LOST SECRETS OF THE GODS
The Latest Evidence and Revelations On Ancient Astronauts, Precursor Cultures, and Secret Societies
Michael Pye and Kirsten Dalley

Including original essays by Jim Marrs, Robert M. Schoch, Nick Redfern, Steven Sora, Thomas G. Brophy, Micah Hanks, Laird Scranton, Frank Joseph, Scott Alan Roberts, John Richard Ward, Theo Paijmans, Ardy Sixkiller Clarke, Paul Von Ward and others.

Are there 10,000-year-old secret societies that still exist today? Was there a race of giants that once inhabited the Americas? Did ancient Egypt and ancient China have heretofore undiscovered ties?

LOST SECRETS OF THE GODS delves into these ancient mysteries and many more in articles by some of the world's most intrepid and knowledgeable researchers. The old paradigms of history are being radically transformed as we discover more evidence of little-known cultures and what they achieved.

Many ancient cultures spoke and wrote of visitors that gave them knowledge and helped shape their societies. Who were they and where did they come from? We now know that many ancient cultures had advanced knowledge of science, agriculture and astronomy, only some of which has been rediscovered in the last 100 years.

Were The Iliad and The Odyssey really about an epic struggle in pre-Celtic Europe? What happened to the Persian army that completely disappeared from Egypt 2,500 years ago? Did the ancients know how to create psychic guard dogs to protect sacred sites?
There is much more to history than what has officially been recorded. LOST SECRETS OF THE GODS reveals startling truths and asks fascinating questions traditional historians have long ignored.

LOST WORLDS OF ANCIENT AMERICA
Compelling Evidence of Ancient Immigrants, Lost Technologies, and Places of Power
Compiled and edited by Frank Joseph Foreword by Dr. John DeSalvo

While digging out a new basement near Los Angeles, homeowners accidentally unearth a 3,000-year-old Phoenician altar; A treasure-hunter in Ohio finds more than he expected when his metal detector locates an Eastern Mediterranean pendant from 1000 bc; Two caches of coins minted in Imperial Rome surface along the Ohio River; A Smithsonian Institution archaeologist excavating a Native American burial mound in Tennessee removes a stone emblazoned with a second-century Hebrew inscription.

These are just a few of the dramatic finds described in THE LOST WORLDS OF ANCIENT AMERICA. They confirm that the American continent was visited and influenced by visitors from Europe and the Near East hundreds, even thousands of years before its “official” discovery in 1492. As such, this startling, fresh proof of their powerful impact on the pre-Columbian New World offers us a different view of American origins that threatens to re-write mainstream textbooks.

More than two dozen noted academics, researchers and writers have contributed to this myth-shattering volume, including:
· Scott Wolter, a university-trained geologist, construction analysis
company president
· Dr. John J. White, editor emeritus of the Midwestern Epigraphic
Society's quarterly Journal;
· J.M. Allen, a former air-photo interpreter for the RAF;
· Bruce Scofield, a world-class authority on Aztec astrology;
· Dr. Arlan Andrews, a registered professional engineer with AT&T
Bell Labs and the White House
· Wayne May, founder and publisher of Ancient American magazine.

LUCIFER'S COURT £14.99
LUCIFER'S COURT
A Heretic's Journey in Search of the Light Bringers
Otto Rahn

Otto Rahn's lifelong search for the Grail brought him to the attention of the SS leader Himmler, who shared his esoteric interests. Induced by Himmler to become the chief investigator of the occult for the Nazis, Rahn traveled throughout Europe - from Spain to Iceland - in the mid 1930s pursuing leads to the Grail and other mysteries. LUCIFER'S COURT is the travel diary he kept while searching for “the ghosts of the pagans and heretics who were [his] ancestors.” It was during this time that Rahn grasped the positive role Lucifer plays in these forbidden religions as the bearer of true illumination, similar to Apollo and other sun gods in pagan worship. This journey was also one of self-discovery for Rahn. He found such a faithful echo of his own innermost beliefs in the lives of the heretics of the past that he eventually called himself a Cathar and nurtured ambitions of restoring that faith, which had been cruelly destroyed in the fires of the Inquisition. His journeys on assignment for the Reich - including researching an alleged entrance to Hollow Earth in Iceland and searching for the true mission of Lucifer in the caves of southern France that served as refuge for the Cathars during the Inquisition - also led to his disenchantment with his employers and his mysterious death in the mountains after his break with the Nazis.

· First English translation of the author's journeys in search of a Nordic equivalent to Mt. Sinai

· Explains why Lucifer the Light Bringer, god of the heretics, is a positive figure

MACY'S
The Store. The Star. The Story
Robert Grippo

On October 28, 1858, Rowland H. Macy, a native of Nantucket and a former seaman, opened a ladies' and gentlemen's emporium in New York City. The businessman had experienced several failed ventures and many felt that his new enterprise wouldn't last very long. But Macy firmly believed that his "Fancy Dry Goods" store would captivate New York's bustling crowds - and he was right.

MACY'S traces a hundred and fifty years of one of the country's premier retailers. The story begins with Rowland Macy's colourful roots in Massachusetts. It then details the founding of the store, including the innovative advertising and pricing practices that made the fledgling business stand out from its competitors. Later chapters describe how Macy's made history by being the first retailer to promote a woman to an executive position, how Isidor and Nathan Straus created the beautiful flagship store on Herald Square, how the once-cluttered lower level became the famous Cellar and much more.

Throughout, lively text, rare photographs and colourful illustrations highlight the people and events - the trends, tragedies and traditions - that transformed Macy's from a modest storefront into the 'World's Largest Store.'

MAPS OF THE ANCIENT SEA KINGS
Evidence of Advanced Civilization in the Ice Age
Charles Hapgood

Charles Hapgood's classic 1966 book on ancient maps is back in print after 20 years. Hapgood produces concrete evidence of an advanced worldwide civilisation existing many thousands of years before ancient Egypt. He has found the evidence in many beautiful maps long known to scholars. Hapgood concluded that these ancient mapmakers were in some ways much more advanced in mapmaking than any people prior to the 18th century. It appears they mapped all the continents. The Americas were mapped thousands of years before Columbus. Antarctica was mapped when its coasts were free of ice. There is evidence that these people must have lived when the Ice Age had not yet ended in the Northern Hemisphere and when Alaska was still connected with Siberia by the Pleistocene, Ice Age 'land bridge'.

MATH FOR MYSTICS £12.99
MATH FOR MYSTICS
From the Fibonacci Sequence to Luna's Labyrinth to the Golden Section and Other Secrets of Sacred Geometry
Renna Shesso

Much of math history comes to us from early astrologers who needed to be able to describe and record what they saw in the night sky. Whether you were the king’s court astrologer or a farmer marking the best time for planting, timekeeping and numbers really mattered. Mistake a numerical pattern of petals and you could be poisoned. Lose the rhythm of a sacred dance or the meter of a ritually told story and the intricately woven threads that hold life together were spoiled. Ignore the celestial clock of equinoxes and solstices, and you’d risk being caught short of food for the winter.

Shesso’s friendly tone and clear grasp of the information make the math “go down easy” in this marvelous book.

MONA LISA'S MOUSTACHE £15.99
MONA LISA'S MOUSTACHE
Making Sense of a Dissolving World
Settegast, Mary

n the eighty years since Marcel Duchamp drew a moustache on a copy of the Mona Lisa, the dissolving of cultural forms has intensified to the point that there is no longer an absolute, a "proper" form, anywhere. This generalized breakdown is evident in social and moral codes, in gender distinctions and personal relationships, in politics and economics, in literature, music, dance, painting, and architecture, in our concepts of reality itself.

Is there any sense to be made of this seeming chaos? And if so, can any single theory adequately account for all aspects of the phenomenon? Physicists and mathematicians have informed us that reality is irreducibly complex and plural, unable to be exhausted by any one system of description. Following their lead, Mary Settegast has explored several different ways of looking at the reality of dissolving forms, seeing it as the result of global consumer capitalism; environmental deterioration; the end of a cycle of time; the beginning of a new cycle; a shift in the evolution of human consciousness; and finally, seeing the dissolution of form as a cause for celebration.

Each of these six perspectives is theoretically "correct" in its ability to explain the breakdown, and each can be supported by the work of twentieth-century artists. Readers are asked to forego the impulse to choose which view they believe to be true and encouraged instead to practice the simultaneous holding of multiple perspectives: "Like the Cubist painters of the early twentieth century, who were among the first to recognize the error in a single point of view, we will be trying in these pages to portray our subject from all sides in hopes of capturing it whole."

MYSTERIES OF THE ANCIENT PAST
A Graham Hancock Reader
Glenn Kreisberg

• With contributions by David Frawley, Geoff Stray, Joscelyn Godwin, Daniel Pinchbeck, Antoine Gigal, and others

• Topics range from the origins of the Inca to the architecture of the
Giza plateau to unified theories of physics and consciousness

• Companion volume to Lost Knowledge of the Ancients
(13,000 copies sold)

As we pull back the curtain from the European version of history, we discover the vast depth of knowledge of our ancient ancestors - knowledge that, not only dispels our image of them as primitive peoples, but, also, corresponds with the forefront of modern science, philosophy and spirituality.

With contributions by David Frawley, Daniel Pinchbeck, Jonathan Talat Phillips and other provocative, cutting-edge thinkers, this collection of essays commissioned by Graham Hancock, bestselling author of Fingerprints of the Gods, represents the latest, often controversial findings in alternative science, history, archaeology and consciousness research. Covering topics ranging from the origins of the Inca and the secrets hidden in Vedic literature, to the architecture of the Giza pyramids and the Sphinx, to unified theories of physics and consciousness, this book shows how, by recovering our lost history, we too can experience the higher consciousness and advanced wisdom of the ancients.

NEANDERTHAL LEGACY
Reawakening Our Genetic and Cultural Origins
Stan Gooch

In THE NEANDERTHAL LEGACY, eminent psychologist and paranormal researcher Stan Gooch brings together the wide-ranging investigative strands of his lifetime of study of the human brain. One of the world's leading experts on the influence of Neanderthal Man on the cultural and biological development of humanity, Gooch contends that the Neanderthals' enlarged cerebellum was a source of deep connection with the psychic and dream worlds, which remains extant in modern man in paranormal phenomena that conventional science cannot explain.

Gooch offers new scientific evidence of the crossbreeding between Neanderthals and Cro-Magnons that is responsible for the dichotomous nature of our feelings, thoughts, impressions, beliefs and even our cultural mores and politics. The “hybrid vigour” produced by this mating has gifted modern man with abilities and sensibilities that the scientific establishment and conventional educational system entirely ignore. The author explores the legacy of our Neanderthal ancestors in an effort to awaken their virtues and qualities, which are so needed in our modern world.

· Examines the genetic evidence for Neanderthal/Cro-Magnon crossbreeding and the dual-nature effects this hybrid cross produced

· Explains the influence of the Neanderthal's enlarged cerebellum on our modern brain function and psychic and paranormal abilities

OUT OF PLACE IN TIME AND SPACE
Inventions, Beliefs, and Artistic Anomalies That Were Impossibly Ahead of Their Time
Lamont Wood

There are paintings from the Middle Ages with helicopters and UFOs. We've found Ancient Greek Computers and heard stories of Roman Death Rays. The Pacific Front of World War 2 was described 16 years before it started. There are many examples of items and artefacts showing up decades and centuries before they could possibly have been invented.

The existence and documentation of these and many other things impossibly ahead of their time are beyond dispute. OUT OF PLACE IN TIME AND SPACE delves deeply into these impossibilities, showcasing:

· Objects, beliefs and practices from the present that appear long
before they could have been invented in the past.
· Items and art that we haven't even created yet turning up in the
past paintings and artifacts that we only now are able to recognise.
· Roman-era war engines that were hundreds of years ahead of their
time.
· UFOs, never officially documented in any time period, yet still
showing up in mediaeval paintings.

OUT OF PLACE IN TIME AND SPACE explores these anachronistic artefacts and looks for explanations. Sometimes we can understand where they came from and sometimes we cannot. But, taken together, these enigmas indicate that we are surrounded by evidence that history - and perhaps time itself - is not as straightforward as we have believed.
