Violence and unrest are sweeping through Roman Britain. Justin and Flavius find themselves caught up in the middle of it all when they discover a plot to overthrow the Emperor. In fear for their lives they gather together a tattered band of men and lead them into the thick of battle, to defend the honour of Rome. But will they be in time to save the Emperor . . . Rosemary Sutcliff's books about Roman Britain have won much acclaim and the first in the sequence, The Eagle of the Ninth, has now sold over a million copies worldwide. The author writes with such passion and with such attention to detail that the Roman age is instantly brought to life and stays with the reader long after the last page has been turned. This new film tie-in edition is being published to coincide with the release of The Eagle, a major film adaptation of the first in The Eagle of the Ninth sequence.

On a strange night of falling stars, Aria is called to learn who she is and why. Coerced by a grandmother to leave her desert home in California, Aria embarks on an adventure of discovery. Guided and transported by the most colorful of curiosities, back (and back) in time she travels, and along the way, comes face to face with those who forged her family. She goes to the Beginning of Things—not the Beginning of Time, but the Beginning of Things, as they exist in Aria’s world. Her beliefs and assumptions are crushed beneath her wandering pilgrim feet as she leaves the modern era behind in search of something she didn’t even know she needed. Escorted and cajoled by kings, outlaws, druids, and damsels, Aria is made aware of truths long hidden. Lost in a land of myth, she is made fully dependent on a long line of grandparents, both kind and diabolical, who ensure her safe passage back to California after sojourns in France, Scotland, England, and Ireland, where the Beginning of Things takes place. People who share Aria’s rare Rh-negative blood populate these ancient lands. These are people who the Watchers watch. “The Silver Branch is an imaginative ride through history written with engaging wit. Aria is an enchanting character that takes us on an exciting journey through many different modes of travel to a magical, satisfying end, which is really the beginning.” —Carla Harrower Landscape Contractor “In the Silver Branch, Aria is called to learn who she is...and why. And on a strange night of falling stars, her journey begins. Guided and transported by the most colorful of curiosities, back (and back) in time she travels and along the way comes face to face with those who forged her family...and herself. Historical and mythical, Aria’s story will compel readers to want to hear the tales and see the faces etched along the branches of their own family tree.” —Maria Pritchard Author and Retired Educator The story is a journey through intimate glimpses painting a history of cultures subtly told in generational sequences and family tales. It never lets go of being in the present, skeptical while knowing that reality and magic might both exist. The reader is taken along it all, as if told a magical story, which despite historical connections between the mysteries, it really is. The Silver Branch tells a story in changing layers more parallel than mixing, and as far-away magical as the nearness of home. —Jonathan Beck M.D.

If you're involved in any form of Celtic Wicca or Witchcraft, or if you just want to know more about the ancient Celtic Priests, the Druids, you need The Lost Books of Merlyn by Douglas Monroe. But you're not the only one who wanted this book. After his first book appeared, he received over 20,000 letters asking for more! That's the purpose of this book. The Lost Books of Merlyn is a series of writings which have come down to us as attributed through the pen of Merlyn, or ? more precisely ? as having originally been in his keeping. Merlyn (upon whom the mythical Merlin was based) was a Druid, and the Druids were the priest-priest-initiators of their people. So this book is a reconstruction of the ancient philosophy, beliefs, and methods for personal transformation you can use today. The book is composed of three parts, each one based on old Celtic legends, in the form of a story. Why was it written that way? "Because that is the way the Druids, the Celts, would have done it ? that is the way they taught." The three sections are "The Battle of the Trees," "The Book of Pheryllt," and "The Gorchan of Maeldrew." When these stories were originally told, the people knew the meanings of their symbolism. Not so, today. Therefore, at the end of each section is a grimoire explaining the meanings and, at the same time, sharing rituals, oracles, and magical methods. You'll learn about tree oracles, Celtic signs of power, and the Druidic pantheon of deities. You'll discover how to contact Faery folk, the power of words, and charms of protection. Revealed, too, is how to make and use dowsing rods to find ley lines, and the secrets of magical dance and music. Also, you'll find out the secrets of the "Charm of Making" and the proof that it was ancient before it was popularized in a movie. This just barely scratches the surface of the book. You'll find that the wisdom here will touch you and help you on your path. Read it and learn.

Grimassi has written extensively about Wicca, and Llewellyn specializes in books sympathetic to occult ways, so the combination is pretty predictable. He describes not only the usual magic practices, but also the religious and spiritual aspects of what believers say is inherited ancient European wisdom and scoffers say is made-up, new-age nonsense.

His verse is established as a direct precursor to the Arthurian Legends--and Taliesin himself, is said to be the direct forebear to Merlin. The author presents completely new translations of Taliesin's major poems in their entirety, uncovering the meanings behind these great works for the first time.

Productive Remembering and Social Agency examines how memory can be understood, used and interpreted in forward-looking directions in education to support agency and social change. The edited collection features contributions from established and new scholars who take up the idea of productive remembering across diverse contexts, positioning the work at the cutting edge of research and practice. Contexts range across geographical locations (Canada, China, Rwanda, South Africa) and across critical social issues, from HIV & AIDS to the legacy of genocide and Indian residential schools, from issues of belonging, place, and media to interrogations of identity. This interdisciplinary collection is relevant not only to education itself but also to memory studies and related disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.

A TEAM OF GEOMANCERS PROBE MEGALITHIC SITES FOR THE TRUE STORY OF THE GIANTS AND CYCLOPES OF MYTH AND THEIR RELEVANCE FOR TODAY Seasoned Boston book editor Edward Burbage vividly records the adventures of himself and two colleagues as they participate in the final dissolution of an old enemy of humanity, the healing of an antique wound, and the restoration of an equally old mythic but real figure. The pursuit of these goals takes them all over the planet, starting off in England but traveling to France, Spain, Ireland, Sicily, Greece, Turkey, Peru, the United States, and finishing in the South Island of New Zealand on the top of a formidable snow-capped peak. The story is a myth-living evocation of many of the key themes of Western mythology, such as the Wounded Fisher King, the Dolorous Stroke, the grim Wasteland, the bright Avalon of the Summer Country, the numinous Castle of the Holy Grail, the Grail Knights who dedicate their lives to questing for the holy object, and the lingering, intriguing tales of Cyclopes, the one-eyed giants of humanity’s deep past, credited with building the world’s megalithic features. The story takes place in the ultra-modern setting of 2090 as they chase the possible reality and significance of Cyclopes for current times. Burbage and his companions couldn’t have better helpers. They’re tutored by an angelic order called the Elohim, humanity’s godparents, prime benefactors, and, it turns out, the fabled Cyclopes. They’ve preserved a heavenly sword for humanity, and that’s the centerpiece of the whole affair. The ending of the reign of domination by humanity’s perpetual enemy—Ahriman, also known as the Antichrist, all-time liar, destroyer, and champion “bad guy” of the world. Burbage’s team needs this sword because the outcome of these encounters affects the next phase of Earth’s scripted destiny—the rehabilitation of humanity’s alignment with the intended design of reality.

In this study, which is first of all a folk-lore study, we pursue principally an anthropo-psychological method of interpreting the Celtic belief in fairies, though we do not hesitate now and then to call in the aid of philology; and we make good use of the evidence offered by mythologies, religions, metaphysics, and physical sciences.
