Caves, Graves and Catacombs: Secrets from Beneath the Earth - True Stories (Paperback)Natalie Jane Prior (author)
Paperback Published: 01/09/1996
- Not available
The author of Bog Bodies now brings you a hidden world full of life, death and mystery. People have always used the underground - for mines, railways, houses and hideouts, warfare, burials, waste disposal. There's also the natural world of caves, volcanoes and creatures who live in the dark. Natalie Jane Prior takes you on a mystery tour you'll never forget, from eyeless fish to fungus gnats, water diviners to the Witch of Wookey Hole. Read about the noblewoman who was buried alive and woke up to find a thief stealing a gold ring from her finger; the Scottish cannibal family that lived undetected in a cave for 20 years; the town with underground shops, hotel and church. Understand the underground!
