I should stress that the re-release of Mysteries of Time and Space is not an exercise in nostalgia. In fact, quite the opposite: what we have here is a book that is still relevant today and from which much can be learned, decades after it originally first surfaced.

Great product.

Despite the lack or reviews, I was hoping this book would be a diamond in the rough, but it wasn't. The book has a low-quality feel to it, and its content has been covered by hundreds of better books. It's also not very readable; the style seems like a psudo-science textbook than a read-for-pleasure paperback.

The enigmas of history have spawned theories, either scientifically based or plain conjecture. In Ancient Mysteries, Rupert Furneaux attempted to answer timeless questions covering the world through the use of science.

Furneaux covered over 30 “mysteries” that covered such subjects as Atlantis, several monumental architectural structures around the world, Biblical mysteries, several ethnic groups and cultures, mysteries centered in Britain and the Americas, hoaxes, and “soon-to-be” 21st-century enigmas. Through all of them Furneaux attempts to give a description of why the topic in question is a mystery and then over the history of theories before giving as “definite” answer as possible.

Unfortunately for this book, Furneaux used scientific conclusions 20 years old by the time the book was published which are even more out-of-date today. Yet, not all of his answers were based on science through they were not far out theories which he pretty much attempted to dismiss as much as possible. For several topics, Furneaux attempted to straddle the line between “scientific consensus” and far-out theories, so mixed success at best and just plain bad at worst.

The background information Furneaux gives for each of the topics he writes about, though definitely not up-to-date, is the best part of the book. However, the out-of-date science, the occasional stretch of the science that Furneaux, and sometimes condescending tone the author uses in some topics makes he want to caution people away from this unless they are really well read in history.

This is one of those books I've had on my shelf for years but had just never around to reading. This delay only made Ancient Mysteries, published in 1977, even more outdated than it already was. We now know much more about many of the subjects Rupert Furneaux discusses in these pages, and Furneaux himself seemed to rely heavily on books published in the 1950s and 1960s. Honestly, I don't know how the Chicago Tribune could have described the author's research as "impeccable." Furneaux certainly doesn't share much of that research with us. There's no bibliography or list of consulted works (or, for that matter, an index), and the sparse footnotes sprinkled here and there are the product of direct quotes from other works. As far as the material goes, the quality varies -some pretty good, some not so good. The last section of the book is particularly frustrating; in what seems to be a rushed and sometimes contradictory narrative on the subjects of ancient astronauts and the question of extraterrestrial life in the universe, Furneaux criticizes others for introducing unsubstantiated facts and ideas, then proceeds to throw out several wild and unsupported notions of his own.

Ancient Mysteries deals with many of the usual suspects - Atlantis, the Great Pyramid in Egypt, Noah's Ark, Stonehenge, Camelot, etc. Most chapters are twelve to fifteen pages, which tells you that Furneaux isn't going into great detail about any of the subjects he covers. Since most of what he does say is incomplete and outdated, this really should not be considered any type of go-to book for those seeking answers to any of the mysteries of life, the universe, and everything.

I did find value in reading this book, however, and that value lay in Furneaux's discussions of several ancient mysteries I was quite unfamiliar with. For example, there's the "Hairy Ainu," the aboriginal Caucasian natives of the Japanese islands; the Panagyurishte Treasure found in Bulgaria in 1949; the surprisingly ancient tombs and temples found on the island of Malta; and the fantastic stone ruins found in Zimbabwe that point to a highly advanced African civilization. It is also interesting - albeit disturbing - to see how such finds as those in Zimbabwe were disavowed or explained away for decades for purely racist reasons.

All in all, this really isn't a book that those interested in ancient mysteries should seek out; you can find much more information on virtually any of these subjects in any number of more modern sources. If you happen to come by the book, though, it is worth picking up for its chapters on some of the more obscure but nonetheless fascinating mysteries Furneaux discusses.
