More > was held almost ten years after the landmark 2003 Working and Walking in the Footsteps of Ghosts event which started to raise issues and challenge assumptions about what is ‘ancient’ or ‘natural’ and what is meant by the terms ‘wood’ or ‘woodland’. Since then on-going work in a range of disciplines across ecology, biology, landscape history, archaeology, forestry and nature conservation has continued the process of research and evaluation across the subject area.

More > day journey around the coast of the Peloponnesian Peninsula at Easter time in 2016. The journey copied the route taken by Edward Enfield in his book Greece on my Wheels. The author went to Korinth, Olympia, Kalamata, Sparta, the Mani Peninsula, Epidavros and the fortified island of Monemvasia. He visited Mycenean, Athenian, Roman, Byzantine and medieval sites. The route took in interesting and beautiful features of the landscape, history and archaeology of this fascinating place.

A real Camelot does exist and appears on old maps. It is a magical and mystical spot so far overlooked by those in search of this legendary location. It is hidden in woods on the outskirts of London.... More > Archaeological digs show it had a massive drawbridge over a moat, walls five and a half feet thick and a dungeon. It also has a holy well and reported apparitions of a Guinevere-like "White Lady." It's regarded locally as a place of visions, healing and inspiration, with some very definite and intriguing connections to the Grail Myths and Arthurian Legends. Not only is this Camelot in London, so is Arthur's Sword-in-the-stone. There is no doubt this is a real Camelot. It's possible it was a Camelot used by Arthur. Mystics and psychics suggest it is the location of an inner-world Grail castle. This inspirational book is a real journey into our visionary and mythic Landscape and a modern day quest for The Grail containing more mysteries than The Da Vinci Code.< Less

This two hundred mile long lake would eventually wipe out all archaeological traces of a culture that had endured for over five thousand years. Ghost Peoples is the story of the Sinixt: their origins, their culture, their history and their present situation.

The Loddon Company By Peter Davies et al.
Paperback: $21.96
Prints in 3-5 business days
The River Loddon and Tributaries Water Supply Company race system was one of the longest running privately operated mining water supply networks in Victoria. Construction of the race began in the... More > late 1860s under the direction of Edward Wardle and Mark Amos, and it was soon taken over by the River Loddon and Tributaries Water Supply Company. The race system continued under various guises until it was finally decommissioned in the early 1960s, representing almost a century of operation. The race network is also significant for its association with the Coliban System of Waterworks. In this volume we present the results of archaeological and historical research into the Loddon Company’s water system. The network includes the well preserved remains of inverted siphons from the 1930s, along with dams, tunnels and cuttings. The site and its landscape setting tell us much about the crucial role of water supply in gold mining, the cultural history of mining and the role of gold seekers as water engineers.< Less
