Ghost ships, lost cities, unsolved crimes and mysteries, ancient mythology, dissapeared explorers - if it’s a historical mystery, it’s going under the microscope.
History has always been fascinating, but more fascinating than what we know is what we don’t; in this podcast Ashleigh Stiles looks into famous and obscure episodes of folklore, unexplained circumstances, and unsolved mysteries from around the world and throughout time.
Taking a modern lens to these ancient puzzles, she uses all the evidence and findings to try and piece together what really happened, or as close a picture as we can get, to both entertain the listener, and inspire interest in these lesser-known chapters of the human experience. So sit back and listen along, and join us in pondering the great unsolved questions of history.
EPISODE 24: ALL THAT GLITTERS (PART 2)
