Excavations at Cliffs End Farm, Thanet, Kent, undertaken in 2004/5 uncovered a dense area of archaeological remains including Bronze Age barrows and enclosures, and a large prehistoric mortuary feature, as well as a small early 6th to late 7th century Anglo-Saxon inhumation cemetery. An extraordinary series of human and animal remains were recovered from the Late Bronze Age–Middle Iron Age mortuary feature, revealing a wealth of evidence for mortuary rites including exposure, excarnation and curation. The site seems to have been largely abandoned in the later Iron Age and very little Romano-British activity was identified. In the early 6th century a small inhumation cemetery was established. Very little human bone survived within the 21 graves, where the burial environment differed from that within the prehistoric mortuary feature, but grave goods indicate ‘females’ and ‘males’ were buried here. Richly furnished graves included that of a ‘female’ buried with a necklace, a pair of brooches and a purse, as well as a ‘male’ with a shield covering his face, a knife and spearhead. In the Middle Saxon period lines of pits, possibly delineating boundaries, were dug, some of which contained large deposits of marine shells. English Heritage funded an extensive programme of radiocarbon and isotope analyses, which have produced some surprising results that shed new light on long distance contacts, mobility and mortuary rites during later prehistory. This volume presents the results of the investigations together with the scientific analyses, human bone, artefact and environmental reports.

Two women. Two tied destinies. Two millennia. One enigmatic sword. My name is Jamie Poole, and I’m destined to help the Departed. Yeah, I hear dead people. I’m a kid from a single-parent home in “Small Town, USA.” All I want is outta here, go to college, and see the world. Dad, who left when I was a baby, is an archaeologist. He sends books and pictures but never tells me about himself. When I saw a statue bearing the same sword Dad found in Egypt I knew I needed his guidance. Then a ghost told me the sword’s name: Lumen. I had to find Dad. Mom wouldn’t help, but I’m determined. I found him! We had lots to discover about each other. While we did, we resurrected an ancient Druidess named Eliyana who owned Lumen. Why was Lumen in Egypt if it belonged to her? Did I mention it was forged of a mysterious alloy? As we unraveled those mysteries things got weird. You can’t resurrect someone without consequences. The veil protecting our world from the Otherworld ripped. Think you can imagine the havoc? You’ve no idea. How did Eliyana react to reawakening? She fled. Can she survive here? Will I find Eliyana before disaster strikes? It does when people find themselves “out of Time.” Those dead people I hear? Eliyana’s clan. Killed unjustly. Lumen empowers its owner, but she’s gone and Lumen with her. How can I stop their plea for justice? Her destiny is to lead them. Time can be fixed. But is it too late? Can I restore the veil before danger crosses the Otherworld’s threshold? Follow me in The Isle of Osiris, first in a series of Diaries as I enter a supernatural world steeped in Celtic myth that becomes more real than our own.

King Arthur was not an Englishman, but a Celtic warrior, according to Loomis, whose research into the background of the Arthurian legend reveals findings which are both illuminating and highly controversial. The author sees the vegetarian goddess as the prototype of many damsels in Arthurian romance, and Arthur's knights as the gods of sun and storm. If Loomis's arguments are accepted, where does this leave the historic Arthur?

The final book in the seminal sword and sorcery series featuring Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser from the Grand Master of Science Fiction and Fantasy. The highly regarded British horror author Ramsey Campbell called Fritz Leiber “the greatest living writer of supernatural horror fiction.” Drawing many of his own themes from the works of Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe, and H. P. Lovecraft, master manipulator Fritz Leiber is a worldwide legend within the fantasy genre, actually having coined the term sword and sorcery that would describe the subgenre he would more than help create. While The Lord of the Rings took the world by storm, Leiber’s fantastic but thoroughly flawed antiheroes, Fafhrd and Grey Mouser, adventured and stumbled deep within the caves of Inner Earth as well, albeit a different one than Tolkien’s. They wondered and wandered to the edges of the Outer Sea, across the Land of Nehwon and throughout every nook and cranny of gothic Lankhmar, Nehwon’s grandest and most mystically corrupt city. Lankhmar is Leiber’s fully realized, vivid incarnation of urban decay and civilization’s corroding effect on the human psyche. Fafhrd and Mouse are not innocents; their world is no land of honor and righteousness. It is a world of human complexities and violent action, of discovery and mystery, of swords and sorcery.
