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 13: THE NINETY NINE
Everyone has a hero, whether we admit it or not. Someone we look up to, someone who we aspire to be like and emulate. Oftentimes they’re people who’ve indelably made their mark on human history - pioneers, the first of their kind.
Sadly though, we don’t always get closure on their extraordinary tales - sometimes they fly straight off the page of the history book, and into the unknown, never to return.
