All around us our country's long history is hidden in the local present - in towns, villages, the countryside, and on the landscape. With a little bit of knowledge, research and sometimes luck, the story behind that monument you pass every day, mysterious hidden passageway in your house, or chalk carving on the hill can be unlocked and discovered for the first time. Mysteries of Britain begins by uncovering an array of historical mysteries, exposing the tales of the past that are sitting right underneath us in the present. From the secrets of 17th and 18th-century smuggler's tunnels to the flight of Mary, Queen of Scots, particular mysteries are researched, studied and explained in detail. Proving also to be a good "do-it-yourself" guide, if there is a local mystery that you have always wanted to get to the bottom of, this book will instruct you on how to get your very own investigations underway. Mysteries of Britain also looks at various intriguing, often famous and certainly mysterious landscape features. From the fascinating revelations about the British landscape before the Ice Age to the ingenuity of the Tower People of Shetland, this book abound remarkable aspects of the land of Great Britain. The tour of the British Isles detailed here highlights just how our landscape is laden with our past, and how it has influenced our present. Often oblivious to how our long and magical history is all around us, the Mysteries of Britain will open your eyes to just what can be discovered with a little curiosity and know-how.
