A new book sure to be of interest to many TDG readers is Brian Haughton’s Hidden History: Lost Civilizations, Secret Knowledge and Ancient Mysteries (Amazon US and UK):
From the palace of Knossos to Egypt’s pyramids and the temples of Peru, the people of vanished cultures speak to all of us across thousands of dusty years. ‘Hidden History’ helps to quench our thirst for insight into the artifacts, the fantastical architecture and the enigmatic and mystical individuals who lived in centuries past. A renowned European archaeologist and chronicler of ancient and alternative history, Haughton brings a scholar’s focus to the exploration of the human enigmas and unexplained phenomena of early history.
I haven’t had the chance to check it out yet, but sounds tasty. For more information on the book, and author Brian Haughton, check out this website.
