Sinopsis: In a world so governed by logic and reasoning, there remain a good many things that cannot simply be explained away. Why would a statue of the Virgin Mary suddenly start weeping? How can it start raining...fish? Where did the 'Exmoor beast' and the 'Nottingham lion' hail from? What about the victim of spontaneous human combustion? And that's to say nothing of UFOs, poltergeists, aliens, ghosts and a catalogue of other strange beings. In this extraordinary book, Janet and Colin Bord investigate the strange happenings over the past hundred years and discover that, far from being reasoned away, the list of the inexplicable appears to be growing apace. Lavishly illustrated from the authors' own photographic collection, this fascinating book also includes a county-by-county guide to strange phenomena and a chronological list of the mysterious happenings of the twentieth century. Posing more questions than it claims to answer, Modern Mysteries of Britain is an enthralling, intriguing compendium that will surprise, delight and perplex. AUTHBIO: Janet and Colin Bord wrote their first book, 'Mysterious Britain', in 1972. Since then they have written a further eighteen books together, and have travelled widely throughout Britain taking photographs of prehistoric sites, antiquities and places of folklore interest. Many of these are held in their own photographic archive, The Fortean Picture Library.
