I have always been one who was curious about all the different unexplained symbols we see around such as ones on our dollar bills, past secret societies, and even symbols of other counties! Although it doesnt have a complete full detailed explanation for the symbols, its great for just learning a bit of each symbol, learning what they stand for and where they originated.
