New Book on History of Britian -- I Should Like this Book


[ame="http://www.amazon.com/dp/0713990643/ref=pe_140430_19711800_pe_epc_t4"]Amazon.com: Britain After Rome: The Fall and Rise, 400 - 1070 (Penguin History of Britain) (V.2 1) (9780713990645): Robin Fleming: Books@@AMEPARAM@@http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51wr1RIOGSL.@@AMEPARAM@@51wr1RIOGSL[/ame]

but i wonder if he talks about the little incident below ---

6th Century Wasteland: Secret Volcano or Cosmic Interaction? The Cosmic Tusk


the problem is -- they can't find the volcano in that time frame --- that only leaves one choice ----- ???????

He is actually a she. I bought the book and wished I hadn`t, so I cannot recommend it. Cannot help out with the volcano, though. Could you tell us more, please?

really looking for a book about 500ad to 1000+ad --general history is OK but i'm really more after the enviromental conditions and effects on people/population --

will put together some stuff, etc --- i am finding out real fast there are several schools of thought on population conditions -- most importantly there are the "catastrophist" crowd (i;m one of them) which says that man and civilization is driven by disasters and not necessarily man himself. this is a very general statement -- translated -- means we do our best to live and progress and invent to make our lives easier and richer, etc., but along comes an impactor which causes a 50' tsunami and wipes out all the coastal cities, population, harbors, food chain and everything else -- this is opposite of the sort of other group that says man is in complete control and its the generals and kings and church, etc etc that cause wars, etc that disrupt civilization -- yes they do but what causes them to do that - is it famine, volcanes, droughts, natural disasters --

COMET/EARTH IMPACT CHRONOLOGY RELATED SITES

this is a starter -- scoll down to the "section S" and you will find all kinds of interesting things -- they don't just come up with this stuff -- they have tree dating, ice cores, sedimental layers, human and animal die-offs, etc etc ---

this is just some of the "from space" stuff" -- then there is the earthquakes and volcanoes ---

here's two books to get going on --

[ame="http://www.amazon.com/Cycle-Cosmic-Catastrophes-Stone-Age-Changed/dp/1591430615"]Amazon.com: The Cycle of Cosmic Catastrophes: How a Stone-Age Comet Changed the Course of World Culture (9781591430612): Richard Firestone, Allen West, Simon Warwick-Smith: Books@@AMEPARAM@@http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51lOYud358L.@@AMEPARAM@@51lOYud358L[/ame]

[ame="http://www.amazon.com/2300-Event-Archaeology-Geophysics-Meteoroid/dp/1598002775/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1304277437&sr=1-2-fkmr0"]Amazon.com: The 2300 BC Event: Vol 1 Archaeology and Geophysics & The Meteoroid Stream (9781598002775): M. M. Mandelkehr: Books@@AMEPARAM@@http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51KAk9%2BpibL.@@AMEPARAM@@51KAk9%2BpibL[/ame]

there's three books in this set -- i have them -- incredible stuff
