Product Description

Handheld Press presents a new classic short story anthology, combining the supernatural and archaeology. Never before have so many relics from the past caused such delicious and intriguing shivers down the spine.

Archaeological historian Amara Thornton of the University of London, and Classical archaeologist Katy Soar from the University of Winchester have curated a selection of twelve outstanding short stories encompassing horror, ghosts, hauntings and possession, all from archaeological excavation.

From a Neolithic rite to Egyptian religion to Roman remains to medieval masonry to some uncanny ceramic tiles in a perfectly ordinary American sun lounge, the relics in these stories are, frankly, horrible.

Stories include:

‘The Ape’, by E F Benson

‘Roman Remains’, by Algernon Blackwood

‘Ho! The Merry Masons’, by John Buchan

‘Through the Veil’, by Arthur Conan Doyle

‘View From A Hill’, M R James

‘Curse of the Stillborn’, by Margery Lawrence

‘Whitewash’, by Rose Macaulay

‘The Shining Pyramid’, by Arthur Machen

‘Cracks of Time’, by Dorothy Quick

‘The Cure’, by Eleanor Scott
