Cairo Jim and the Astragals of Angkor

book | 2007

The Astragals of Angkor, strange ancient carvings from Cambodia, are discovered in the Vaults of Abandonment, deep below the Old Relics Society in Cairo. Where did they come from? Who are the people depicted on the Astragals? And why are they shown in such outrageous positions?

Cairo Jim, that well-known archaeologist and little-known poet, finds himself faced with the most astounding revelations of his career in this final (?) tale in the Cairo Jim chronicles. Little does he realise that such bizarre contortions may lead to monumental destruction of all that we know.

Yet more unexpected uncoverings from the chronicler of these annals of audacity, Geoffrey McSkimming.
