More About Lost Bodies by Jenni Davis
 
 
 
Overview

Did you know that Alexander the Great was buried in a casket of pure gold? Did you also know that a gold casket is irresistible to even the most superstitious grave robbers? These are the ultimate in cold cases: the great figures of history whose mortal remains have vanished or are shrouded in mystery. Inspired by the discovery of Richard III in Leicester, England, ("the king in the car park"), this book features persons who went missing post-mortem. From bodies that went on walkabout (Eva Peron was snatched in 1955 only to reappear in 1971, badly in need of "some work") to those that are well and truly lost (Cleopatra, Hitler). History - and the bodies of the most famous - truly moves in mysterious ways. Along with short biographies of their lives, Lost Bodies explores the controversies surrounding their deaths, as well as the theories about what may have happened to them and attempts to find them. As part of an ongoing search to uncover the past, archeologists, historians, and fans search for these lost icons.
