11 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an epic adventure: from the Vikings to the Enlightenment, from barbaric outpost to global centre, it tells the amazing story of northern Europe's transformation by sea. An utterly beguiling journey into the dark ages of the north sea. This is a story of saints and spies, of fishermen and pirates, traders and marauders - and of how their wild and daring journeys across the North Sea built the world we know. When the Roman Empire retreated, northern Europe was a barbarian outpost at the very edge of everything. A thousand years later, it was the heart of global empires and the home of science, art, enlightenment and money. We owe this transformation to the tides and storms of the North Sea
Ingrid Caven : roman by Jean-Jacques Schuhl( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This novel is based on the life of the extraordinary German cabaret singer and film actress who was once director Rainer Werner Fassbinder's star, and his wife, muse to Yves Saint Laurent, and a protege of Pierre Berge. Consisting of memories, real and invented people and events, Ingrid Caven reveals the cold heart of the European counterculture of the 1970s, an era of celebrity glitz, cocaine-fueled excesses, gay bathhouses, and young idealists-turned-terrorists."--Jacket

Exposed, uncovered, and declassified : lost civilizations & secrets of the past by Kirsten Dalley( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Were Atlantis and Lemuria factual places? Who built the pyramids, and for what purpose? How advanced was the technology of ancient cultures? All this and more is covered in Exposed, Uncovered and Declassified: Lost Civilizations and Secrets of the Past—the latest in the all-original series that is already sparking lively debate. Erich von Daniken, bestselling author of Chariots of the Gods, examines the Egyptian pyramids, studying their astronomical implications and what message they were meant to convey. Thomas G. Brophy, Ph.D., focuses on the mysterious Nabta Playa site in southern Egypt and its connection to African history. Intrepid explorer of ancient America Frank Joseph covers archeological scandals and attempts to suppress evidence, including the Smithsonian's “loss” of Maya skulls discovered in the Aleutian Islands. Researcher Steven Sora, author of The Lost Colony, delves into evidence that Scotland's Picts originated in North America and were connected to the ancient Micmac tribe of the Americas
Lost secrets of the gods : the latest evidence and revelations on ancient astronauts, precursor cultures, and secret societies( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Are there 10,000-year-old secret societies that still exist today? Was there a race of giants that once inhabited the Americas? Did ancient Egypt and ancient China have heretofore undiscovered ties? Lost Secrets of the Gods delves into these ancient mysteries and many more in articles by some of the world's most intrepid and knowledgeable researchers. The old paradigms of history are being radically transformed as we discover more evidence of little-known cultures and what they achieved. Many ancient cultures spoke and wrote of visitors that gave them knowledge and helped shape their societies. Who were they, and where did they come from? We now know that many ancient cultures had advanced knowledge of science, agriculture, and astronomy, only some of which has been rediscovered in the last 100 years. Were The Iliad and The Odyssey really about an epic struggle in pre-Celtic Europe? What happened to the Persian army that completely disappeared from Egypt 2,500 years ago? Did the ancients know how to create psychic guard dogs to protect sacred sites? There is much more to history than what has officially been recorded. Lost Secrets of the Gods reveals startling truths and asks fascinating questions traditional historians have long ignored"--
