History is replete with unanswered questions regarding rumored past events, objects, and cultures that often turn into the stuff of legends. Each chapter in this engaging study examines a particular mystery, ranging across the globe and throughout the annals of human history. The topics addressed include the lost city of Atlantis; the Ark of the Covenant; the legend of the crystal skulls; and the enigma of the indecipherable Voynich manuscript. Entertaining and informative, this is an unbiased review of historical puzzles and bewildering discoveries that is perfect for the historian and curious skeptic alike.
