    The Epic of Gilgamesh is an epic poem from ancient Mesopotamia that is often regarded as the earliest surviving great work of literature and the second oldest religious text, after the Pyramid Texts. The literary history of Gilgamesh begins with five Sumerian poems about Bilgamesh, king of Uruk, dating from the Third Dynasty of Ur. These independent stories were later used as source material for a combined Country: Mesopotamia.   “Crusaders: The Epic History of the Wars for the Holy Lands” by Dan Jones was an absolute delight to read. If you want an excellent book that gives you a comprehensive look at the Crusades and the Crusaders, no matter if you are a novice or someone who has studied this period before, I highly recommend you read this book.

    Pollock Pines and Sly Park History. Due to popular demand, we finally spent the time to create a “Print on Demand” version of “The Pollock Pines Epic. “. For the printed version, we’ve rescanned all the images at high resolution, expanded them to full-size for clarity, and reformatted the book as well as added a nice cover. I enjoyed portions of this book (especially the history of the Tower menagerie and the chapter about great escapes from the Tower), but too much of it was given over to a chronological march through British history giving detailed general descriptions about each king or queen's reign but very little information actually directly related to the Tower/5.
