9780750930338: The Lost City of Solomon and Sheba: An African Mystery

It sounds like something out of an Indiana Jones film - a lost civilisation, gold mines, the legendary King Solomon and his lover the Queen of Sheba - but this is the real thing. Despite being investigated by the Royal Geographical Society in 1893, the remains of a ruined empire lying in south-central Africa, including 20,000 stone monuments, temples, forts and sculptures, are still an enigma. Following in the literary footsteps of H Rider Haggard, Robin Brown-Lowe explores the origins of this culture defined not only by its monuments, but also by its gold mines. Based on recent DNA evidence, Brown-Lowe traces links between this lost civilisation and the inhabitants of North Africa, the Egyptian pharaohs and ties in the legends of King Solomon (an infamous gold magnate( and his lover Queen Sheba (the major gold dealer of her day). `A gripping story of discovery and detection.'
