The Atlas of Mysterious Places
The World's Unexplained Sacred Sites, Symbolic Landscapes, Ancient Cities, and Lost Lands
Edited by Jennifer Westwood
Publisher:  Weidenfeld & Nicholson
Copyright 1987

Over the past 5,000 years man has left traces of himself and his civilizations that remain unexplained mysteries to the populations around the world today.

Scattered over the planet are 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 tantalizing remnants of lost lands with a proud and prosperous past.  With a magnetism of extraordinary power, 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 at Stonehenge man has sought explanations and answers to the existence of these mysterious sites.

The Atlas of Mysterious Places begins to unravel the many questions which surround those landmarks of past civilizations.  The book analyzes and interprets the evidence in exciting detail with the most up-to-date archaeological evidence, detective work, and with a wealth of tales and folklore.  Clear and concise maps pinpoint locations in mountain, jungle, desert, plain and ocean.  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 mysteries mounds at Monticello).

An extensive guide, detailing many more places and their particular mysteries, makes The Atlas of Mysterious Places a comprehensive reference to the world of unexplained sites, symbols, cities and landscapes.
