Peter James and Nick Thorpe, the professional historian and archaeologist team who created the acclaimed Ancient Inventions, now tackle these age-old conundrums, presenting the latest information from the scientific community – and the most startling challenges to traditional explanations ofmysteries such as:
- The rise and fall of the Maya
- A lost cache of Dead Sea Scrolls

Ancient Mysteries will entertain and enlighten, delight the curious and inform the serious.
