n The Pyramids in a Nutshell, Charlotte Booth examines the evolution of Egyptian and Nubian pyramids, from simple mastaba tombs, through the "glory days" of the Great Pyramid at Giza, and on to lesser known pyramids. Topics covered include: who built the pyramids, how the pyramids were constructed, what they were used for and even the building complexes which surrounded them. From early burials, through stepped pyramids to true pyramids, and from the Old Kingdom to Nubia, this book is a perfectly balanced introduction to this fascinating topic.

Henry VIII's prized flagship sank in 1545 under the watchful eye of the king himself. With it, over 500 men tragically lost their lives.
The Mary Rose in a Nutshell takes us up-to-date with the theories and finds from this, the only Tudor ship in the world. From her construction in 1511, through expansion and refitting, to the Battle of the Solent, and then on to various attempts at salvage, the story of the Mary Rose is amazing. 437 years after she sank, her hull was brought back to the surface and an intense conservation effort was begun.
Philip Roberts' close association with the Mary Rose for well over 20 years comes through in his assessment of the life story of this magnificent ship.
