Amateur, or avocational, archaeologists have made extraordinarily important contributions to our knowledge of prehistory. In order for them to do so, it is essential that they be able to identify the artifacts their discoveries and that, when they find sites that warrant intensive investigation, they report them to those who maintain state records and who can refer them to well-qualified professionals. This book should be very helpful for amateurs who truly care about archaeology and who wish to increase their knowledge and to contribute to the preservation and interpretation of remains of prehistoric cultures.

Arrowheads and Spear Points in the Prehistoric Southeast

The Native American tribes of what is now the southeastern United States left intriguing relics of their ancient cultural life. Arrowheads, spear points, stone tools, and other artifacts are found in newly plowed fields, on hillsides after a fresh rain, or in washed-out creek beds. These are tangible clues to the anthropology of the Paleo-Indians, and the highly developed Mississippian peoples. This indispensable guide to identifying and understanding such finds is for conscientious amateur archeologists who make their discoveries in surface terrain. Many are eager to understand the culture that produced the artifact, what kind of people created it, how it was made, how old it is, and what its purpose was. Here is a handbook that seeks identification through the clues of cultural history. In discussing materials used, the process of manufacture, and the relationship between the artifacts and the environments, it reveals ancient discoveries to be not merely interesting trinkets but by-products from the once vital societies in areas that are now Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, the Carolinas, as well as in southeastern Texas, southern Missouri, southern Illinois, and southern Indiana. The text is documented by more than a hundred drawings in the actual size of the artifacts, as well as by a glossary of archeological terms and a helpful list of state and regional archeological societies.

Philosophy, the “love of wisdom”, is the product of our endless fascination and curiosity about the world – the child of wonder. Through it, we seek to answer the most fundamental of questions: How do we know what we know? Does God exist? What is beauty? How should we live our lives? What am I? In this exhilarating tour, Peter Cave navigates all the main topics of philosophy with verve and clarity. Using witty and whimsical examples, including stoical sofas and Reg, the “regular” human, who just happens to carry his brain in a rucksack, Cave provides a welcome antidote to the dry textbook while covering everything from political philosophy to points of logic. Interspersed with helpful textboxes and underlining the enduring relevance of philosophy to us all, there is no better introduction for the aspiring sage.

In 1976, Nobel Prize Laureate Friedrich August von Hayek called for the abolishment of the state monopoly on money and the introduction of freely competing currencies. Few people could imagine such a free market of money at the time. Today the denationalization of money is in full swing: digital currencies like Bitcoin are fully independent of banks and governments. This book explains the phenomenon of decentralized, stateless money in an easily understandable and entertaining way. It also provides a basic insight into the Austrian School of Economics. The Austrian School's most prominent masterminds, Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich August von Hayek and Murry N. Rothbard, have explained why we must overcome our present debt-based monetary system, which widens the gap between the rich and the poor. Bitcoin is the world's first global payment system that is open to anyone on this planet with Internet access. Payments are cheap, fast and cannot be blocked. With interviews of Bitcoin experts Roger Ver – Stephanie Murphy – Moran Shaked – Eddy Travia – Julia Touranski – Marek Palatinus – David Johnston – Susanne Tarkowski Tempelhof – Satoshi Nakamoto.
