Slinkys and Snake Bombs

More Info


Did you know about the church in Ethiopia that claims to have the Lost Ark? How about the time it rained for two million years? Or the engineer working with the US Navy who developed the Slinky toy? We’ve all been taught about Tutankhamun and Henry VIII, but that’s not all there is to the history of our wonderful planet. Indeed, with the passage of time a lot of the best bits have fallen into obscurity. In this fascinating book, Jem Duducu digs into our past and returns with some of the most interesting, funny and downright strange facts you never knew. There are unusual artefacts and unique locations, obscure wars, and many heroes, villains and remarkable individuals who haven’t received the coverage they deserve – until now!
