Blood Red Roses: The Archaeology of a mass grave from the Battle of Towton AD 1461
by Veronica Fiorato (Editor), et al
The Wars of the Roses are undoubtedly one of the most turbulent periods of English history, and the Battle of Towton reputedly the most bloody battle of any fought on English soil. In 1996 a construction company preparing to build a garage near the site of the battlefield discovered the first mass grave of soldiers ever found on British soil. It contained the remains of up to 51 soldiers who had clearly suffered violent and brutal deaths.

Encyclopedia of Native American Bows, Arrows, & Quivers : Northeast, Southeast, and Midwest
by Steve Allely, Jim Hamm
Native Americans and their elegant weapons have provided an undeniable mystique for archers, history buffs, collectors, and anyone who appreciates traditional skills. For the first time, authors Allely and Hamm have brought together the most exceptional archery pieces from eastern tribes such as the Mohegan, Mohawk, Cherokee, Seminole, Chippewa, and Winnebago. Beautifully detailed full-page pen-and-ink drawings give dimensions, decorations, and construction details on more than a hundred historic bows, scores of arrows, and two dozen quivers. The running commentary is drawn from research conducted in museums around the world, and gives insights into who used these instruments and how. This pathbreaking and comprehensive book will strongly appeal to all those with an abiding interest in Native Americans and archery.

Excavating Jesus: Beneath the Stones, Behind the Texts
by John Dominic Crossan, Jonathan L. Reed
Listed under History of Christianity

by Karl Kerenyi, et al
The Sanctuary of Eleusis, near Athens, was the center of a religious cult that endured for nearly two thousand years and whose initiates came from all parts of the civilized world. Looking at the tendency to "see visions," C. Kerenyi examines the Mysteries of Eleusis from the standpoint not only of Greek myth but also of human nature. Kerenyi holds that the yearly autumnal "mysteries" were based on the ancient myth of Demeter's search for her ravished daughter Persephone--a search that he equates not only with woman's quest for completion but also with every person's pursuit of identity. As he explores what the content of the mysteries may have been for those who experienced them, he draws on the study of archaeology, objects of art, and religious history, and suggests rich parallels from other mythologies.

Finding the Walls of Troy: Frank Calvert and Heinrich Schliemann at Hisarlik
by Susan Heuck Allen
Book Description: The relentlessly self-promoting amateur archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann took full credit for discovering Homer's Troy over one hundred years ago, and since then generations have thrilled to the tale of his ambitions and achievements. But Schliemann gained this status as an archaeological hero partly by deliberately eclipsing the man who had launched his career. Now, at long last, Susan Heuck Allen puts the record straight in this fascinating archaeological adventure that restores...

The Mummies of Urumchi
by E. J. W. Barber, Elizabeth Wayland Barber
The 2000-year-old mummies of Urumchi, found in central Asia along the famed Silk Road trading route, are so well preserved as to show clearly that they seem to be of Caucasoid origin. Where did these people come from? Where did they go? You can find their pale-skinned, light-haired descendents among the people of the region, but the story of their presence in this forbidding land leaves more mysteries than it answers. Mass migrations during the Bronze Age scattered many peoples across Europe and Asia, and these startlingly lively-looking mummies may help answer some questions about this period of human history. Their intact, fantastically colored and patterned clothing captures much of author Elizabeth Wayland Barber's attention--she is an expert on prehistoric textiles. Her enthusiastic descriptions of the sewing skills of these migrant people, while focusing on details, lend an immediacy to this fascinating tale. Black-and-white as well as color photos, maps, and diagrams illustrate Barber's colorful tale of anthropology. --Therese Littleton -
