|From Atlantis to Nostradamus, Masons to Templars, Lionel and Patricia Fanthorpe have explored some of the greatest mysteries ever known in this world and beyond. Now, the Fanthorpes attempt to answer, among other questions: What are the origins of blood-sucking creatures such as vampires? Do Yeti and Sasquatch truly exist on mountains in Canada and Nepal? Who actually built the Sphinx and the Pyramids and why were they erected? What strange, dangerous powers lay hidden in the Ark of the Covenant? Is the Bermuda Triangle really a deathtrap for ships and planes? Secret societies, lost treasures, and legendary monsters - all have been carefully researched by the Fanthorpes, many investigated in person, and now presented with illustrations and photographs in one super-sized collection to satisfy everyone's curiosity. If you've ever felt the burning desire to know more about life's great mysteries, then "The Big Book of Mysteries" is for you - no element of the unknown is safe from the Fanthorpes' scrutinising eyes.
