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 7: NOTHING BESIDE REMAINS
The greatest legends of ancient civilisations are steeped in the trappings that come with a story told and retold. Larger than life characters, brave heroes and evil villains, great battles and wars that never end, with the gods themselves personally invested.
But in all these great stories, there’s always a kernel of truth - something that actually happened; or a city that really stood, and fell.
