If you're an aficionado of weird history you know about the Voynich Manuscript, but how about the Rohonc Codex? Care for something a bit different, something that explores things no-one has heard about? Unrepentant Rebels once tried to kidnap Lincoln's body, for example, and there's a copy of the Eiffel Tower under the foundations of Wembley Stadium. Meticulously researched and 100% historical.
Other topics include: the ocean-swallowed lands off the coasts of Cornwall and Italy, the colony set up by samurai fleeing the Japanese Civil War, the time the Ancient Chinese and Romans may have got into a pitched battle in Central Asia, the various times the Earth may (or may not) have had a second Moon, and many more.
No Atlantis or ghosts here! Passing Strangeness is a fascinating and factual journey into the truly odd bits of history.
