Recent finds shine a new light on Charlemagne. The head of the Holy Roman Empire was not holy, never Roman and no emperor. Instead, he and his family all founded secular abbeys - in the days before abbeys excluded women, of course.
Although little physical evidence survives from that era, these few remaining vestiges speak volumes. The advances made in Iron Age archaeology open new views of a beautiful medieval world long dismissed as barbaric. A buried cosmopolitan past is coming to life in all its flourish, bustle and elegance.

In English and French, with English subtitles
Announcing the new release of the short film Liberty for All. Look behind the scenes at the forces driving the quest for liberty in France and America; hear the voices from both sides of the Atlantic that led up to the two revolutions. With the help of archaeology, uncover some of France's Gallic roots that reveal a tradition of liberty that included both men and women. As a culmination, listen to the words of France's 20thcentury warrior who raised a rallying cry for freedom that still resounds to the present day.
Lest freedom slip away while the world deals with pestilence, earnings and survival, please spend a brief moment with us to consider the high cost of losing it.

Dear Irenca, your candle still shines
in a place we cannot yet see.
You meant the world to so many -
May your spirit rest ever free.
Remembering Irene Povše,
A leading light in the quest for truth and freedom.

In Praise of Courageous Bookstores
In today's turbulent literary realms, two strong lanterns light the night. Even in these communication-fraught times, family-owned businesses in Palo Alto and Santa Cruz still sustain an open marketplace. The Hidden Women series gratefully resides in both collections.
These brave purveyors of knowledge welcomed the books, even though Amazon prints and distributes them. As a result, Bell's Books of Palo Alto and the Bookshop Santa Cruz can offer a selection of books by local authors, and at lower prices.
All who cherish sanctuaries filled floor-to-ceiling with cerebral treasures pay homage to these beacons of a free society.
