Book Description

Oct. 31 1997 Marshall Travel Atlas
This is a comprehensive reference to the world of unexplained sites, symbols, cities and landscapes. An extensive guide, the book details 40 places and their particular mysteries. A six-page gazetteer at the end of the book includes a further 54 places of mystery throughout the world. Scattered over the planet are the curious ruins of cities, temples and tombs, puzzling earthworks and inscriptions on the land, sacred sites where civilizations have sought communion with the supernatural, and the remnants of lost lands with a proud and prosperous past. The world's unexplained places have intrigued and fascinated man. From the legends of Atlantis and Eldorado, to the Nasca lines of Peru and the massive pillars of Stonehenge, man has sought explanations and answers to these mysterious places. The atlas unravels many of the questions that surround these landmarks of past civilizations. It analyzes and interprets the evidence in detail with the up-to-date archaeological material, detective work, and numerous tales and folklore. Maps pinpoint locations in mountains, jungles, deserts, plains and oceans. Also discussed are the many people associated with these sites, from King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table to Thomas Jefferson, who explored the mysterious mounds at Monticello.
