Recent issues have included feature articles on the mystery of the great boulders in Great Britain. All over Great Britain, are located great boulders with rock art including abstract designs some of which date from the time of Stonehenge, and no one has been able to decipher them or figure out who made them. The stones are located in different places in Britain, but predominantly in northern England and Scotland. Recent excavations and archaeological digs at Argyll and Kilmartin may have revealed a few answers.
Other articles in recent issues include a fascinating look at the author Ian Fleming, who wrote the James Bond spy novels. Ian Fleming, a wartime intelligence officer himself, became interested in archaeology, treasure hunting, and excavation during the 1950’s. He became great friends Jacques Cousteau, the well known French diver, and was able to dive with him to explore underwater archaeological sites. He also learned some high tech techniques for exploration which Fleming used while excavating the Creake Abbey in Norfolk.
