Lost Histories: Exploring the World's Most Famous Mysteries by Joel Levy

In the shadowy recesses of history lie a number of undiscovered treasures. Swallowed up by the sands and seas of time, they have left behind only legends and myths to tantalise scores of archaeologists and treasure hunters who have become obsessed with finding them. In Lost Histories, Joel Levy investigates some of the greatest mysteries of our past. What and where is the Holy Grail? Was there ever a city of El Dorado? Will we ever find the lost works of Aristotle and Shakespeare? And where are the final resting places of a whole host of bodies, from Genghis Khan to Amelia Earhart? Examining the wealth of legends and theories from over the years, Joel Levy skilfully sifts the truth from the myth, and shows us whether or not we ever have a chance of putting these mysteries to rest.
