How old is this arrowhead? Is there really gold in that Indian mound? What tribe left all these artifacts behind? Can the government take my artifact collection away? For more than twenty years, Evan Peacock, an archaeologist at Mississippi State University, has been fielding and answering questions such as these from the public. In Mississippi Archaeology Q & A, he gathers those answers in one place to give landowners, history buffs, arrowhead hunters, and students new to archaeology an invaluable handbook of dos and don'ts. Peacock writes for the lay reader, supplies humorous anecdotes from his years in the field, and never scolds. Instead he respectfully introduces the neophyte to the wonders of the remarkable prehistoric and historic remains throughout the Magnolia State. Rather than pursuing a hobby in a destructive manner, in-formed artifact collectors can and do contribute to the field. This book offers solid suggestions on how enthusiasts can play a helpful role. Mississippi Archaeology Q & A explains the basic methods that archaeologists use to find, explore, and interpret ancient sites. In a clear and straightforward manner, Peacock divulges what he has learned about landowners' rights and other legal issues. The guide describes many important archaeological sites in Mississippi and adjacent states and the different kinds of artifacts commonly found in the region. For people who wish to protect a site or for those who would like to sell a site or obtain a tax break for its preservation, this guide contains critical information. While the book focuses closely on Native American artifacts, it also thoroughly treats the full range of Mississippi's historical treasures from the remnants of pioneer settlers to Civil War curios.Evan Peacock, Starkville, Mississippi, associate professor of anthropology and senior research associate at the Cobb Institute of Archaeology at Mississippi State University, is the editor of Blackland Prairies of the Gulf Coastal Plain: Nature, Culture, and Sustainability
 Examining a vast array of esoteric subjects from the earliest
times until this current era, Modern
Esoteric takes a radically different perspective on the social, scientific
and economic issues of our day.

Reality is not what it appears. A
number of disciplines and practices ranging from ancient Vedic literature to
quantum physics, from meditation and prayer to intentional manifestation, to
name a few, are coming together around concepts that are beginning to link
actual physical reality to our thoughts and consciousness in a feedback loop
where our consciousness is not merely influenced by reality as we perceive it,
but reality is, in turn, influenced by our thoughts.

Organized
into three sections (Lifeology, Control and Thrive), Modern Esoteric: Beyond Our
Senses by World Explorer magazine
editor Brad Olsen (CCC Publishing, March 2014) examines the flaws in modern
history and looks at how ancient esoteric teachings, coupled with accelerated scientific
advancements, can be used to reverse the dead-end course the world is heading
towards.. The Lifeology section explores the long and storied “alternative
narrative” of life on this planet. In the Control section, author Brad Olsen
examines how Big Brother is here in the form of the New World Order, and how
they keep the knowledge of humankind’s true nature from the mass population.
Finally, the Thrive section looks at all the ways humans are evolving to
achieve their full potential. Indeed, the revolution is consciousness.
































 






 





Through exploration and
the integration of cutting-edge science with ancient wisdom, Olsen believes the
dawn of our new society is faced on the one hand with global tyranny, or we can
overcome the oppression and advance towards universal abundance and
enlightenment. Without government and media manipulation this can be possible, and
the Golden Age will be attained with the rapid advancement of human
consciousness.
