Product Overview

"In the globe-trotting spirit of Indiana Jones, Brian Haughton has circled the earth, trying to get to the bottom of some of history's greatest mysteries." - BBC Online

History's Mysteries is an absorbing and meticulously researched exploration of the archaeology, history, and mysteries of 35 ancient places worldwide.

Haughton's book takes the reader on an unforgettable journey, from the 8,000-year-old stone circle of Nabta Playa to India's magical Taj Mahal; from Rhode Island's controversial Newport Tower to the enigmatic Royston Cave in the UK; from the strange medieval castle-village of Rennes-le-Ch?teau to the massive ancient walled city of Great Zimbabwe.

Using the latest archaeological evidence, History's Mysteries explores:

The incredible archaeological discoveries at the 11,000 year-old sanctuary of G?bekli Tepe in Turkey.

The heated debate over the 47-million-year-old 'Ida Fossil'-- could it be the missing link in our evolutionary history?

The reality behind controversial ancient artifacts such as the Iron Pillar of Delhi, the Oak Island Treasure, and Egypt's "Dendera Lamps."

What really happened to the Neanderthals?

With 36 photographs and illustrations, this is the perfect reference work for those fascinated by the great mysteries of ancient history.
