With the appearance of his latest novel, ""Lost Kingdoms"", Phillip H. McMath has completed his fictional trilogy beginning with ""Native Ground"" (1984), then ""Arrival Point"" (1991). Now in ""Lost Kingdoms"", the fictional Elizabeth Shaw flashes back via grief and remembrance on the death of her son, Christopher, the Marine hero of Native Ground killed in Vietnam. Through this medium of memory and loss is woven in the lives of several families (White, Black, and Red) the tragic story of Arkansas, the South, Southwest, and Mexico, which slowly emerges as a philosophical-historical tapestry not only as a tale uniquely its own but a comment on the meaning of history itself.

Modern communications have driven motorways and pylons through the countryside, dwarfed us with TV and telephone masts and drastically altered the way in which we move around, see and understand Scotland. Recent politics and logistics have established borders and jurisdictions which now seem permanent and impervious. The Faded Map looks beyond these to remember a land that was once quiet and green. It brings to vivid life the half-forgotten kings and kingdoms of two thousand years ago, of the time of the Romans, the Dark Ages and into the early medieval period. In this fascinating account, Alistair Moffat describes the landscape these men and women moved through and talks of a Celtic society which spoke to itself in Old Welsh, where the Sons of Prophesy ruled, and the time when the English kings of Bernicia held sway over vast swathes of what is now Scotland. Heroes rode out of the mists to challenge them and then join with them. The faint echo of the din of ancient battles can be heard as Alistair Moffat takes the reader on a remarkable journey around a lost Scotland.

For many of us the history of Africa is, at best, vague. We might think of Egyptian pyramids, legendary queens (of Sheba or Cleopatra) and Zulu warriors. The truth, however, is one of remarkably diverse, creative, culturally rich civilisations. In this book, which accompanies an 8-part BBC series, Gus Casely-Hayford takes us on a fascinating journey through the history of this remarkable continent. We will encounter archaeological sites of staggering beauty that rival the Great Wall of China, vast and ancient universities that predate Oxford and Cambridge, kingdoms of extraordinary wealth, artistic traditions that still inspire artists today, great religious sites that surpass the Vatican, and a country with more pyramids than Egypt. In recent years new archaeological and anthropological research has opened up the study of African history in ways previously unimaginable. Long-lost kingdoms are suddenly being brought back to life. Civilisations that had faded into myth are revealing their secrets. Using this latest research, Gus Casely-Hayford is able to tell the history of Africa's major kingdoms in an entirely new, colourful and richly-informed way. Accessible and inspiring, The Lost Kingdoms of Africa is both a major addition to our understanding of this oft-overlooked history and a source of genuine delight and wonder.

The Lost Kingdom of Anian Regnum: The Mystery of Ancient British Columbia, Canada An Alternative History Article on the History of British Columbia, Canada There is a mystery about British Columbia, Canada- a historical mystery that is just as significant as any other historical mystery in our past. No one remembers the story of Ancient British Columbia, and we are not taught about it in school. Not so long ago, ‘Anian Regnum’ was inscribed on all the oldest maps, searched for by the Explorers of Old, believed by those who came after, and spoken of in written history by respected Historians. This unknown place of Anian Regnum was shown to be established within the mountains of British Columbia before it was British Columbia- but it is now forgotten in time and disregarded as myth. Could it be possible that ‘Anian Regnum’ did exists, and might we begin to assemble the fragmented annals of our written history to find the Lost Kingdom.

On this quest around the world, you will find lost kingdoms, islands, even continents that people have searched for for millennia and are now only known of through stories and myths. All of these places have been believed to exist by a people or a group of peoples at some point in history, but none of them, in recent times at least, have been found and explored. To find them, you will read ancient treasure maps, read of cryptic riddles, and hear how explorers have scoured the landscape for clues. In this book the reader succeeds where ancient adventurers before you have been thwarted. This quest will transport you to thoroughly other-worldly places. Organised by continent, each chapter opens with a full bleed map of the continent, pinpointing where each location is thought to be. You will learn all about the rich mythologies from different cultures, from the Aztecs to the Celts, from the mysterious islands in the Odyssey to underwater islands in Japanese folklore.

An astonishingly wide-ranging history of Russian nationalism chronicling Russia's yearning for Empire and how it has affected its politics for centuries In 2014, Russia annexed Crimea and attempted to seize a portion of Ukraine. While the world watched in outrage, this violation of national sovereignty was in fact only the latest iteration of a centuries-long effort to expand Russian boundaries and create a pan-Russian nation. In Lost Kingdom, award-winning historian Serhii Plokhy argues that we can only understand the merging of imperialism and nationalism in Russia today by delving into its history. Spanning over two thousand years, from the end of the Mongol rule to the present day, Plokhy shows how leaders from Ivan the Terrible to Joseph Stalin to Vladimir Putin have exploited existing forms of identity, warfare and territorial expansion to achieve imperial supremacy. A strikingly ambitious book, Lost Kingdomchronicles the long and belligerent history of Russia's empire and nation-building quest.

Northumbria was one of the great kingdoms of Britain in the Dark Ages, enduring longer than the Roman Empire. Yet it has been all but forgotten. This book puts Northumbria back in its rightful place, at the heart of British history. From the impregnable fastness of Bamburgh Castle, the kings of Northumbria ruled a vast area, and held sway as High Kings of Britain. From the tidal island of Lindisfarne, extraordinary saints and learned scholars brought Christianity and civilization to the rest of the country. Now, thanks to the ongoing work of a dedicated team of archaeologists this story is slowly being brought to light. The excavations at Bamburgh Castle have revealed a society of unsuspected sophistication and elegance, capable of creating swords and jewellery unparalleled before or since, and works of art and devotion that still fill the beholder with wonder.
