Ancient Mysteries
by Peter Haining
Publisher:  Hutchinson of Australia / Sidgwick & Jackson
Copyright 1977

In this superbly illustrated book Peter Haining reviews the major mysteries of the earth and the various viewpoints that have been advanced about them, concentrating on those mysteries that are of particular interest to the English-speaking world.

In the light of modern science, many of these ancient mysteries are being freshly examined, and new explanations have been put forward about them, giving rise to much fierce controversy and debate in scholarly and scientific circles.  But the mysteries of the earth continue to perplex mankind, as they have done for centuries.

Peter Haining's discussion of these enigmas and their possible explanations is complemented by extracts from major works on the subjects covered, and by a wide-ranging selection of magnificent and often quite rare engravings and photographs.  Ancient Mysteries is thus both a compendium of information on this fascinating topic, and an outstanding pictorial survey of the strange and mysterious of our planet.
