Myth or Reality?
“Myth or reality, the legend of Atlantis has inspired a search that echoes down the centuries.”The World’s Last Mysteries.
We dive into the myth of the lost world of Atlantis. Did it exist? Where could it be?
The lure of gold to foreign places has not been so strong throughout history than perhaps the search for Eldorado.
Next is scrutinized the discovery of the New World. Was it Columbus that truly discovered the New World? When in fact, the Norsemen landed on its shores nearly 500 years earlier. This book uncovers evidence of other possible civilizations that have spanned the centuries.
The Norsemen landed on Greenland and went ‘voyaging’ further where they explored sandy beaches, and called the country Markland – Land of the Forests, now known as Labrador in Canada.
“Dolmens, cromlechs, menhirs, and megaliths”The World’s Last Mysteries.
– what was the purpose of these massive structures?
Down through the ages scientists have sought out after what these magnificent erections were made of, and their purpose in that civilization.
Megaliths — stained and cracked over 4,000 years of standing the test of time in Europe. However, one of the most fascinating and mysterious stone structures are those of Stonehenge.
From Stonehenge, to Giants of Easter Island, we marvel at how they were created. Yet, the most intriguing aspect to them is why?
Teotihuacan – City of the Gods, the religious capital of Mexico. Suddenly this magnificent city collapsed, deserted, and destroyed.
What happened? The legend remains of this once glorious city, like so many others before and after it, scientists have yet to determine what caused this great city to fall.
The World’s Last Mysteries cover the lost empires of Indus Valley, silent stones of Tiahuanaco, the world’s first city, and the last refuge of the Incas. These great cities remind us of how people in history may have known much more than what we could imagine.
Which brings us to the pyramids. The men that built these soaring platforms.
“Eclipsing them all was Babylon’s ziggurat – The Tower of Babel.”The World’s Last Mysteries.
What was the function of these mammoth edifices?
The pyramids of the Americas, and the renowned pyramids of Egypt are constantly explored to unearth the mysteries that hide beneath the sands.
Forgotten Places and Civilizations.
The sands are not just the starting point for pyramids, at one point in time, there were many places that were once green. Where rainfall feed streams, and the variety of animals that roamed the plains.
From the once-green Sahara Desert, to the fierce horsemen of the Steppes, the lost Zimbabwean civilization, the Angkor jungle in Cambodia, the mysterious realm of the Mayas, the enigmatic messages only observed from the sky in Peru, and hundreds more locations scattered over the world where archaeologists and scientists are still trying to understand their ancient meaning.
The World’s Last Mysteries bring to light what many still do not understand. Our world holds inspiration to modern-day creators that marvel just how the ancients created what they did, and more importantly – why?
