Full description for Secrets of the Stone of Destiny
Within the world there are certain objects, talismans if you like, that seem to possess a curious almost magical power. Like Aladdin's lamp, ownership of such objects is a matter of destiny, and changes in ownership can signify even apocalyptic events. This book concerns another talisman, perhaps the oldest and greatest of them all: the Lia Fail or Stone of Destiny. To look at it is to see an unassuming worn block of stone with simple iron handles protruding from its sides. Yet the mythology surrounding it is extraordinary. It predates even the Ark of the Covenant by hundreds if not thousands of years. What secrets does this Stone possess? What is its destiny? Author Adrian Gilbert looks at the stone in a way never before attempted and shows how its very dimensions provide hidden evidence that links it both to the pyramids of Egypt and to the Druidic religion of Britain, and finally to its prophetic destiny.
