Fascinated by history's mysteries, legends, and lore? The famous and infamous? Chances are you could rattle off facts and figures about many historical events in this book. "And chances are you'd be wrong. Really! Amazing new theories born of cutting edge technology have forced scholars to revise and shatter accepted facts and cherished beliefs, including those in this meticulously researched, lavishly illustrated oversize book. The result? Stories more compelling than any fiction you could read! Dazzling maps, sidebars and photographs add to the wonder of discovering new information on subjects as varied as how meat eating led to monogamy, how mosquitoes brought about the fall of the Roman Empire, the secret weapon of World War II, the bizarre travels of Adolf Hitler's bones, the truth about Noah's flood, and much more. Perfect for students and history buffs, this book runs the gamut of historical fact and fiction from the origins of man to death and disaster--a more exciting read than any novel.
