Dug Sealskinner, ein kampfesmüder Söldner, hilft ständig den falschen Leuten. Da wäre Spring, ein Mädchen, das er auf dem Schlachtfeld findet. Oder Lowa, eine der gefürchtetsten Bogenschützinnen des Reiches, auf ihrem persönlichen Rachefeldzug gegen den König. Jetzt steht Dug auf der falschen Seite jenes Heeres, in das er ursprünglich eintreten wollte. Und nicht nur Zadars Krieger trachten ihm und seinen Gefährten nach dem Leben, sondern auch ein blutrünstiger Druide mit schier unbezwingbaren Kräften. Alles, was Dug dem entgegensetzen kann, sind seine Kriegsaxt, ein kleines Mädchen und die unbezähmbare Lowa, die sie noch alle ins Grab bringen wird. Ja, es ist ein guter Tag, um zu sterben.

Die Römer sind da. Und es sind viele, sehr viele. Nicht nur Soldaten, sondern auch Kriegselefanten – und Kämpfer, die von schwarzer Magie gelenkt werden. Keine einfachen Gegner für Lowa und Spring, die tapferen Heldinnen aus der Eisenzeit. Denn auch wenn die britischen Stämme langsam endlich kapieren, auf wessen Seite sie zu kämpfen haben, wird es sicher kein Zuckerschlecken, die mächtigen Feinde zurückzuschlagen. Aber Lowa und Spring wären nicht Lowa und Spring, wenn sie mit Mut, Witz und Raffinesse nicht auch diese Aufgabe anpacken würden ... Mit diesem dritten Band führt Angus Watson seine spannende Dark-Fantasy-Reihe zu einem großartigen Ende.

Following Oliver Dickinson’s successful The Aegean Bronze Age, this textbook is a synthesis of the period between the collapse of the Bronze Age civilization in the thirteenth and twelfth centuries BC, and the rise of the Greek civilization in the eighth century BC. With chapter bibliographies, distribution maps and illustrations, Dickinson’s detailed examination of material and archaeological evidence argues that many characteristics of Ancient Greece developed in the Dark Ages. He also includes up-to-date coverage of the 'Homeric question'. This highly informative text focuses on: the reasons for the Bronze Age collapse which brought about the Dark Ages the processes that enabled Greece to emerge from the Dark Ages the degree of continuity from the Dark Ages to later times. Dickinson has provided an invaluable survey of this period that will not only be useful to specialists and undergraduates in the field, but that will also prove highly popular with the interested general reader.

The sonnets in this book are a result of having been kept illegally in a psychiatric hospital (being censored) for more than 4 years, getting tortured with microwaves every day of this time. I had cancer/leukemia symptoms many times but was healed through prayer, faith healing. I think Military Intelligence has done this or the FBI. They are appalling in their lack of respect for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and over violating of the Torture Convention, etc., to which we are signatories. My time receiving this microwave harassment since August 10 of 1993 has been the worst part of my life, but thank God, I have made it so far. Without Him it would have been impossible

The "Golden Age of Ironwork" examines ironwork from 1840 to 1930 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This period was a boom time of building construction including mass quantities of ornamental ironwork. Many iron manufacturing companies met the need for castings while gifted blacksmiths hand forged wonderful pieces. The examples of wrought iron and iron castings shown in this book are works of art in the truest sense. Throughout the book are examples of how the ironwork enhances and supports the architecture of this time. The first chapters outline the production processes of wrought and cast iron. Applications are then detailed with fences, railings gates, doors and window grills. One section on street, garden and park ironwork, displays some home items including gazebos, chairs, hardware, and a beautiful deer. The book's research is documented with references, a glossary, a bibliography, and index, and the 173 photographs are catalogued. There is another index of street addresses of the examples, providing a tour guide. The textures of the iron surrounded by stone and wood in the large sharp photos by Robert Golding - leap off the pages. All photos have descriptive captions.

Thirteen essays on the Iron Age in Israel and Jordan, covering settlement patterns, iconography, cult, palaeography and the archaeology of certain key sites. This volume offers an exceptionally informed update in a fast-moving area of discovery and interpretation. The first section deals with spatial archaeology and settlement patterns, all the papers based on the fieldwork by A. Zertal in Samaria, A. Ofer in Judah, G. Lehmann in the Akko Plain, and S. Gibson in various areas in the hill country of Israel. The second section covers religion and iconography. The two single Iron Age temples known today in Israel, at Dan and Arad, are discussed by A. Biran and Z. Herzog. R. Kletter and K. Prag discuss clay figurines and other cult objects; T. Ornan identifies Ishtar on a number of seals and on a silver pendant; and N. Franklin examines the iconography and meaning of the wall relief in Room V at Sargon's palace in Khorsabad. The last section includes three studies related to specific sites. M. Steiner considers urban development in Jerusalem during Iron Age II; A. Mazar presents data from Iron Age II Beth Shean, and P. Bienkowski and L. Sedman discuss finds from Buseirah, the capital of Edom.

Iron Age Hillforts in Britain and Beyond

Widely regarded as major visible field monuments of the Iron Age, hillforts are central to an understanding of later prehistoric communities in Britain and Europe from the later Bronze Age. With such a range of variants represented, no single explanation of their function or social significance could satisfy all possible interpretations of their role. Critically reviewing the evidence of hillforts in Britain, in the wider context of Irelandand continental Europe, the volume focuses on their structural features, chronology, landscape context, and their social, economic and symbolic functions, and is well illustrated throughout with siteplans, reconstruction drawings, and photographs. Harding reviews the changing perceptions of hillforts and the future prospects for hillfort research, highlighting aspects of contemporary investigation and interpretation.

James Moore Swank (1832-1914) was a US expert on iron and steel, and wrote widely about the industry. In 1873 he became secretary of the American Iron and Steel Association. This second edition (1892) of his influential book on iron manufacture was significantly expanded compared to the 1884 original, with 132 more pages, 15 extra chapters, and revisions throughout the text. Swank aimed to move away from the highly technical approach and European focus that had dominated previous works. Instead, he would emphasise names, dates, facts and results, and give special attention to the growth of the industry in the United States while providing an international context. He includes every country and US state that produced iron. The book is organised chronologically, and provides a fascinating account of the manufacture of iron from the ancient Egyptian period through early modern Britain to late nineteenth-century America.

The cultural identity of the Ionian Islands during the Bronze Age and Early Iron Age was shaped by a variety of factors, not least by their geographical position at the north-western fringes of the Aegean world. Through the scrutiny of all the categories of archaeological evidence – tombs and cemeteries, settlements and artifacts – the author succeeds in reconstructing the archaeological profile of this fascinating region. Spanning the chronological period from 3000 to 800BC, this study will be of interest to archaeologists and students of Greek prehistory as a whole as well as to those studying regions and island groups. "The descriptions of sites are clear and detailed, the parallels thoroughly researched and the analysis of connections and implications lucid, objective and impressively well-informed... a gigantic step forward in the archaeology of the Ionian Islands."—Mediterranean Prehistory Online

The history of Canaan in the Iron Age is generally written from the perspective of the kingdoms of Israel and Judah. The scope of this book is to inverse this relation and to focus on "the skirts of Canaan", while regarding the "United Monarchy" and the "Divided Monarchy" as external and sometimes marginal players of the regional history. After having examined the transition from the Late Bronze Age to the Iron Age in the mid-12th century B.C., the book deals thus with the Philistines and the role of Egypt in Canaan during Iron Age II, especially in the face of the Assyrian expansion. It treats further of the Phoenicians and the Aramaeans. There follow five chapters on Bashan, Gilead, Ammon, Moab, and Edom with the Negeb. Several indices facilitate the consultation of the work on particular topics.

Iron is of fundamental importance to the growth, development and well-being of almost all living organisms. Multiple biological systems have evolved for the uptake, utilisation, storage, and homeostasis of iron in microbes, plants and mammals. Both iron deficiency and iron overload are found extensively in humans; the intimate links between iron and oxidative stress are associated with a wide range of pathologies. Iron has a well established role in infections by a range of microorganisms and parasites. Other metals such as copper and zinc are also closely linked with iron metabolism. Iron overloads and deficiencies are important factors in the health of humans and are therefore a key target in drug development. Iron Metabolism: From Molecular Mechanisms to Clinical Consequences, 3rd Edition presents a comprehensive overview of this important field.Topics covered include: Solution chemistry of iron in biological media The importance of iron for biological systems Microbial iron transport and metabolism Iron uptake by plants and fungi Cellular iron uptake and export in mammals Intracellular iron storage and biomineralization Intracellular iron metabolism and cellular iron homeostasis Iron absorption in mammals, with particular reference to man, and regulation of systemic iron balance Pathophysiology of iron deficiency and iron overload in man Iron and oxidative stress Brain iron homeostasis and its perturbation in various neurodegenerative diseases Interactions between iron and other metals Written in a lively style by one of the leaders in the field and presented in full colour, this third, expanded edition of Iron Metabolism has been fully updated with the latest discoveries. Major additions include recent information on mitochondrial iron metabolism and the role of frataxin; transcriptional control of iron homeostasis; orally active iron chelators; the roles of hepcidin and erythropoietin; the increasing number of types of iron overload; and the importance of iron in Alzheimer’s disease. Iron Metabolism is essential reading for researchers and students in biochemistry, molecular biology, microbiology, cell biology, nutrition and the medical sciences. It will also find space on the bookshelves of bioinorganic chemists with an interest in iron metabolism, health professionals with an interest in diseases of iron metabolism, and pharmacologists in the pharmaceutical industry interested in developing novel iron-binding drugs.
