Popular culture is rife with movies, books, and television shows that address our collective curiosity about what the world was like long ago. From historical dramas to science fiction tales of time travel, audiences love stories that reimagine the world before our time. But what if there were a field that, through the advancements in technology, could bring us closer to the past than ever before? Written by a preeminent expert in geospatial archaeology, Maps for Time Travelers is a guide to how technology is revolutionizing the way archaeologists study and reconstruct humanity's distant past. From satellite imagery to 3D modeling, today archaeologists are answering questions about human history that could previously only be imagined. As archaeologists create a better and more complete picture of the past, they sometimes find that truth is stranger than fiction.

A Princeton astrophysicist explores whether journeying to the past or future is scientifically possible in this “intriguing” volume (Neil deGrasse Tyson). It was H. G. Wells who coined the term “time machine”—but the concept of time travel, both forward and backward, has always provoked fascination and yearning. It has mostly been dismissed as an impossibility in the world of physics; yet theories posited by Einstein, and advanced by scientists including Stephen Hawking and Kip Thorne, suggest that the phenomenon could actually occur. Building on these ideas, J. Richard Gott, a professor who has written on the subject for Scientific American, Time, and other publications, describes how travel to the future is not only possible but has already happened—and contemplates whether travel to the past is also conceivable. This look at the surprising facts behind the science fiction of time travel “deserves the attention of anyone wanting wider intellectual horizons” (Booklist). “Impressively clear language. Practical tips for chrononauts on their options for travel and the contingencies to prepare for make everything sound bizarrely plausible. Gott clearly enjoys his subject and his excitement and humor are contagious; this book is a delight to read.” —Publishers Weekly

If you were intrigued by what you read in "The Da Vinci Code," then you'll be blown away by what this book says about you and your place in the universe. It goes beyond the relatively improbable idea that the Holy Grail is Mary Magdalene and instead proposes that we really share in the God-like nature of Jesus, himself. However, in this case Talbot's unorthodox conclusion is not based on a dubious account of the actions of the Knights Templar but on a careful analysis of modern discoveries in science, philosophy, biblical exegesis, and the near-death experiences of thousands of people. And if we have free will, he claims we can't be just our physical bodies and totally subject to the natural laws of this material world but must be transcendent beings destined to become more than what we are. Thus, the metaphysically lost souls who want to follow a path to spiritual fulfillment between rigid fundamentalism and equally rigid materialism may find it here.
