Overview

Scattered across our planet and entangled in our history are physical remnants and elaborate stories of lost worlds and mysterious creatures. These artifacts and legends leave us with incomplete pictures, mere glimpses in time we have only begun to fully understand.

From the extinction of the dinosaurs to the quest for the Holy Grail, from the Druids of the "Old World" to the Incas of the "New", Mysteries of the Ancient World gathers the prehistoric puzzles of yester-year into one beautiful and revealing collection. Using the high-tech tools of modern archaeology, geology and astronomy, a host of preeminent writers lead the reader on a dramatic adventure into the distant past to solve some of the greatest enigmas of all times.

We may never have the answers to all the questions of history, but here at last, is an explanation and exploration of so many of the mysteries of the ancient world.
