Fascinating new research is overturning long-accepted historical 'facts' and transforming the story of the past. Did you know that the Hindenburg airship exploded because its outer skin was coated with a substance later used to fuel space rockets, not because it was filled with hydrogen? Or that the story of ancient China is being transformed by the sensational discovery of 4000-year-old blond, tartan-clad mummies, who lived there long before Chinese culture began? Even 'myths' may turn out to be true: scientists believe they have now found evidence for Noah's flood in settlements deep beneath the Black Sea. Stories like these give a radically different view of many of the great people and events of the past.
