Barrinton atlas
Finally, after years in the making, this atlas is finished and I'm glad to have it. This is a great work, all the detailed knowledge about location of cities, shrines, roads, etc, etc., etc., that has been gathered about Roman and Greek sites has been put together in just one atlas. Even individual estates are placed on maps, when convenient. Seamlessly, from one map to another you can trace any route, find any name, and look into the neighboring area.

The complete Idiot's guide

The complete idiot's guide to Lost Civilizations
If you want a good entertaining view of Archaeology, check this book out. Dr Ryan's sense of humor and immense knowledge that I experienced while taking a couple classes by him at a local college, really comes out in his book. He gives the same amount of attention to all the major civilizations and also delves into what some of us may consider "kooky" areas of archaeology without being critical. For someone that may be interested in becoming an Archaeologist he tells you what to expect and where to go for information. I didn't really think Central and South American archaeology was very interesting but after reading this book, I'm rethinking that opinion.

Artifacts of Ancient Civilizations

Imagine holding a Neanderthal stone tool or a lamp that lit the darkness of ancient Rome. Few people realize that such items can be bought often for less than $300. This only guide of its kind lists an array of inexpensive antiquities that were made in Europe and Western Asia before the fall of Rome or in pre-Columbian America. This Official guide is the key to uncovering affordable ancient treasures. Photos throughout .

The Keys to the Temple

Having read many books and theories on the pyramids, it was refreshing to read for once a book filled with actual FACTS, rather than an author's conjecture. I like to read this book as it contains many mathematical and geometrical FACTS and in such quantity that a reader is able to piece together their own theory. As it seems obvious that the pyramids contain much mathematics and geometry in their design it is good to read a book by an author very well versed in these subjects.

Egypt, Greece and Rome

This history is very useful to see both ancient Egypt and the Classical tradition separately and in tandem, making a fine study of the bridge between civilizations. Like acorns under a great oak tree, Greece and Rome resolve their beginnings in the field spawned by Egypt. This is a very usefully done work with excellent references and makes a good tool for the branching out into more specialized areas, without losing a picture of the whole.
