For centuries people like the Egyptian Pharaoh Hatsheput, the Russian Princess Anastasia, and Mount Everest climber George Leigh Mallory have disappeared without a trace – until now. Scientists and explorers from many fields and parts of the world have banded together and, with the help of new technologies like those featured in the movie Batman Returns, attempted to solve these mysteries. From CAT scans of ancient mummies to DNA testing of exhumed skeletons to radar images of lost cities, these teams have begun to reveal what may have happened. This is a great book for the CSI student fan, revealing the real world of forensic science as well as other intriguing technologies that surprise and thrill.
