    Incredibly researched, fascinating look at the power of today’s cutting edge science brought to bear on a very ancient mystery; a gripping read… Really enjoyed this book as it worked its nagic, weaving a story of 21st century science unwrapping the onion of an ancient unsolved mystery. Gripping!
