A compelling brew of mystery, crime, and science revealing the details behind the search for the lost Ark of the Covenant. The Lost Ark of the Covenant is one of the great historical mysteries of all time. To believers, the Ark is the legendary vessel holding the stone tablets of the Ten Commandments. The Bible contains hundreds of references to the Ark's power to level mountains, destroy armies, and lay waste to cities. The Ark itself, however, mysteriously disappears from recorded history sometime after the building of the Temple of Solomon. After ten years of searching through the dusty archives of Europe and the Middle East, as well as braving the real-life dangers of a bloody civil war in Ethiopia, Graham Hancock has succeeded where scores of others have failed. This intrepid journalist tracked down the true story behind the myths and legends--revealing where the Ark is today, how it got there, and why it remains hidden. Part fascinating scholarship and part entertaining adventure yarn, tying together some of the most intriguing tales of all time--from the Knights Templar and Prester John to Parsival and the Holy Grail--this book will appeal to anyone fascinated by the revelation of hidden truths, the discovery of secret mysteries.

Surrounded by steep escarpments to the north, south and east, Ethiopia has always been geographically and culturally set apart. It has the longest archaeological record of any country in the world. Indeed, this precipitous mountain land was where the human race began. It is also home to an ancient church with a remarkable legacy. The Ethiopian Church forms the southern branch of historic Christianity. It is the only pre-colonial church in sub-Saharan Africa, originating in one of the earliest Christian kingdoms-with its king Ezana (supposedly descended from the biblical Solomon) converting around 340 CE. Since then it has maintained its long Christian witness in a region dominated by Islam; today it has a membership of around forty million and is rapidly growing. Yet despite its importance, there has been no comprehensive study available in English of its theology and history. This is a large gap which this authoritative and engagingly written book seeks to fill. The Church of Ethiopia (or formally, the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church) has a recognized place in worldwide Christianity as one of five non-Chalcedonian Orthodox Churches.As Dr Binns shows, it has developed a distinctive approach which makes it different from all other churches. His book explains why this happened and how these special features have shaped the life of the Christian people of Ethiopia. He discusses the famous rock-hewn churches; the Ark of the Covenant (claimed by the Church and housed in Aksum); the medieval monastic tradition; relations with the Coptic Church; co-existence with Islam; missionary activity; and the Church's venerable oral traditions, especially the discipline of qene-a kind of theological reflection couched in a unique style of improvised allegorical poetry. There is also a sustained exploration of how the Church has been forced to re-think its identity and mission as a result of political changes and upheaval following the overthrow of Haile Selassie (who ruled as Regent, 1916-1930, and then as Emperor, 1930-74) and beyond.

Are there Old Testament roots of the veneration of the Blessed Virgin Mary? Margaret Barker traces the roots of the devotion to Mary as Mother of the Lord back to the Old Testament and the first temple in Jerusalem. The evidence is consistent over more than a millennium: there had been a female deity in Israel, the Mother figure in the Royal cult, who had been abandoned about 600BCE. She was almost written out of the Hebrew text, almost excluded from the canon. This first of two volumes traces the history of the Lady in the Temple, and looks forward to the second volume in which Barker will show how the Lady of the Temple is reclaimed in the advent of Christianity, and becomes the Lady in the Church. The result is breathtaking, and like all Barker's work, is impossible to put down.

In its 2007 obituary of Bruce Trigger (1937–2006), the Times of London referred to the Canadian anthropologist and archaeologist as “Canada’s leading prehistorian” and “one of the most influential archaeologists of his time.” Trained at Yale University and a faculty member at McGill University for more than forty years, he was best known for his History of Archaeological Thought, which the Times called “monumental.” Trigger inspired scholars all over the world through his questioning of assumptions and his engagement with social and political causes. Human Expeditions pays tribute to Trigger’s immense legacy by bringing together cutting edge work from internationally recognized and emerging researchers inspired by his example. Covering the length and breadth of Trigger’s wide-ranging interests – from Egyptology to the history of archaeological theory to North American aboriginal cultures – this volume highlights the diversity of his academic work and the magnitude of his impact in many different areas of scholarship.

Many scholars are convinced that The Holy Chalice of Valencia is the Holy Grail, celebrated in medieval legends as it was venerated by monks in the secluded Monastery of San Juan de la Pena, built into a rocky outcropping of the Pyrenees and surrounded by mystery. The tradition of Aragon has always insisted that the flaming agate cup of the Holy Chalice was sent to Spain by Laurence, the glorious saint martyred on a gridiron during the Valerian persecution of 258 AD, whose praises have been sung in European literature since the fourth century. Now there is new evidence: A sixth-century manuscript written in Latin by St. Donato, an Augustinian monk who founded a monastery in the area of Valencia, provides never-before-published details about Laurence, born in Valencia but destined for Italy, where he became treasurer and deacon under Pope Sixtus II. It explicitly mentions the details surrounding the transfer of the Holy Cup of the Last Supper to Spain.

On an astounding odyssey of the world's oldest and most sacred sites, from the pyramids of ancient Egypt to the enigmatic statues of Easter Island, from the haunting ruins of South American cities to the beauty of Angkor Wat, Graham Hancock puts forward compelling evidence to show that the cultures we term ancient were in fact the heirs to an older lost civilisation, and the inheritors of it archaic wisdom. Heaven's Mirror re-examines the significance of the precise astronomical patterns of the great ancient sites and asks why monuments, such as those at Giza and Angkor, mirror whole constellations on the ground. It draws inescapable conclusions about the world before known history began, and it reveals the existence of an ancient cult which may hold the secret of immortality.

Australia has seen the importation of many tractor makes and models from manufacturers around the world, more particularly the USA and Europe. This has been brought about by economic circumstances which have made tractor manufacture in Australia difficult. This has not stopped the efforts of many in developing an “Australian” product.Tribute must be paid to the likes of Jelbart, McDonald, Howard, Ronaldson Bros and Tippert and of course Chamberlain. In later years we have seen the development of “big” tractors through names like James Nagorcka (Waltanna), Upton Brothers, Baldwin and Phillips (Acremaster) to name a few.By the 1950s tractors were more powerful, more efficient, more manoeuvrable and more comfortable than ever before. From 1950 until now (2010) innovation and changing technologies have continued to improve this ultimate farm tool.This book seeks to bring to the reader a pictorial account of just some of the myriad of tractors found in Australia. The information provided is brief and hopefully sufficient to highlight some of the characteristics of each tractor. It should be noted that where manufacturers once released a single model for the purposes of marketing, in recent years they have released a series which may be similar in appearance and design yet have specific differences which are not always apparent to those of us who appreciate tractors but are not aware of professional and technical detail. An attempt has been made to acknowledge the series where possible.
