In 1840, twenty-two year old Henry Layard left England on horseback without knowing a word of Arabic or Farsi and set off for the Middle East. Layard would make some of the most important archaeology discoveries ever, uncovering the ruins of Nineveh in 1845 as well as the lost Assyrian capital, Ashur, all while narrowly escaping death, combatting murderous thieves, socializing with Polish revolutionaries, and riding alongside Bakhtiari warriors in Persia. While his discoveries (and adventures) were legendary in their own right, Layard then returned to England to write bestselling books of his travels, successfully run for office, and become a British diplomat credited with saving scores of Yezidi refugees and preserving international relations in the face of war.Real-life Indiana Jones meets Lawrence of Arabia in Winged Bull, the first biography in half a century to tell the story of Henry Layard and his daring adventures as a Victorian explorer as well as his incredible achievements as a politician, diplomat, and historian. While you may not have heard of Layard, you may well have seen the winged bulls, lions, and artwork he gathered on his travels that now make up permanent collections in the British Museum, Museum of Modern Art, Britain's National Gallery and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, among others.Layard may have also been the first "archeologist with a conscience." While other well-known explorers either stole or bribed their way into priceless riches, Layard sought formal permission from local authorities. Further than that, his journals and books -including the best-selling Nineveh and It's Remains, which remains a seminal text on the region -paint the picture of a deeply caring adventurer for whom the land and the culture of its peoples were to be respected and revered. Layard was as tireless as he was prolific, leaving a far-reaching and impactful legacy not only in the archeological discoveries he made, but the work he did to preserve cultures and nations alike. Using Layard's own journals as well as archival materials and never-before-published documents, author Jeff Pearce captures the life of a man who was never at rest, whether narrowly escaping disaster abroad, dining with local tribal rulers, excavating ancient sites, or standing up for the downtrodden as a British MP. Discover the life of Henry Layard in this gripping adventure tale of exotic discoveries, swashbuckling exploits, and political intrigue.

The Occult Fiction Of Dion Fortune

Dion Fortune is recognised as one of the most influential figures in twentieth century occultism and her books on various aspects of the occult tradition are now enjoying a much deserved reappraisal. Her works of fiction are highly acclaimed both as vehicles for presenting complex magical and psychical theory and as remarkably powerful pieces of genre literature. Gareth Knight, her biographer and a life long student of her work, here gives an overview of all her occult fiction, including her early work, The Secrets of Dr Taverner, a series of short stories based upon the approach of her early teacher Dr Theodore Moriarty to methods of esoteric healing, and The Demon Lover, a blood and thunder thriller of black magic and vampirism that developed in the writing into a story of initiation and redemption through love. In her later novels, Dion Fortune began deliberately to use fiction as a means of practical teaching. While she had presented the theory of occultism in her great work The Mystical Qabalah, it was through her works of fiction that she sought to provide manuals for putting it into practice, at a time when much of this material was considered highly secret and to be revealed to initiates only. Gareth Knight gives a clear guide on how and where to look for this practical instruction in these later books, which comprise The Goat-foot God, an evocation of Earth Mysteries and the Rite of Pan; The Winged Bull with its polar Mysteries of Sun and Earth; The Sea Priestess, celebrating the Mysteries of the Moon; and the posthumously published Moon Magic that takes them to a higher arc with the setting up of a temple dedicated to Isis. Many aspects of occultism receive practical attentionin her pages, including place memories, karmic elements from past incarnations, animal magnetism, ley lines, sacred centres, techniques of ritual, and above all the working out of right relationships between the sexes in polar interchange.
