In 1841, the intrepid explorer John Lloyd Stephens - who some consider to be the original, real version of Indiana Jones - amazed the world with his discovery of an entire ancient civilisation hidden for centuries in the tangled scrub jungles of Central America. He also noticed something uniquely curious about the Maya: unlike other great civilisations such as the Romans and the ancient Egyptians, the Mayan empire did not arise from the banks of a mighty river. Much of the Mayan world is in fact devoid of even the smallest river or lake. Then why did they populate the Yucatan?

Stonehenge may be the best-known and most mysterious relic of prehistory. Every year, a million visitors are drawn to Salisbury Plain in England to gaze upon the famous circle of stones. During the 20th century, excavations revealed that the structure was built in stages, and that it dates back some 5,000 years, to the late Stone Age. The meaning of the monument, however, has continued to elude us. Many questions still remain about how a prehistoric people quarried, transported, sculpted, and erected these giant stones.
