A Brief History of Stonehenge, Aubrey Burl
3 A Brief History of Stonehenge
Aubrey Burl 2007 Robinson Publishing Trade Paperback. Fine. 1845295919 / 9781845295912. 
Britain's leading expert on stone circles turns his attention to the greatest example of them all - Stonehenge. Every aspect of Stonehenge is re-considered in Aubrey Burl's new analysis. He explains for the first time how the outlying Heel Stone long predates Stonehenge itself, serving as a trackway marker in the prehistoric Harroway. He uncovers new evidence that the Welsh bluestones were brought to Stonehenge by glaciation rather than by man. And he reveals just how far the design of Stonehenge was influenced by Breton styles and by Breton cults of the dead. Meticulous research sets the record straight on the matter of Stonehenge's astronomical alignments. Although the existence of a sightline to the midsummer sunrise is well known, the alignment and the viewing-position are different from popular belief. And the existence of an earlier alignment to the moon and a later one to the midwinter sunset has been largely unrealized. One almost unexplained puzzle remains. The site of Stonehenge lies at the heart of a vast six-mile wide graveyard, but before it was built there appears to have been a mysterious gap two miles across on that site.Burl argues that earlier totem-pole style constructions served a ceremonial purpose for the living - to celebrate success in the hunt.

9 Across the Frontiers
Philip Gibbs 1938 Michael Joseph London. Hard Cover. Very Good. No Jacket.

There are many passionate problems in this account of the world today--not least of which is the tragic problem of the Jewish race in a new era of persecution, which the author treats with candor and sympathy. Good tight binding. Orange/brown cloth. No dust jacket. Please inquire for more complete description and/or picture.

Barry Wynne 1972 Corgi Books Mass Market Paperback. Very Good. 055209059X / 9780552090599. 
One of the most exciting archaeological finds of the twentieth century was the discovery, in 1922, of the last unaccounted tomb of a Pharaoh in the royal valley of the Kings at Luxor, Egypt. While many academic treatises have since described the archaeological significance of the excavations, this fast-paced narrative conveys the thrilling adventure of the explorers gradually approaching the tomb and surmounting major obstacles.
