Item description for From Agincourt to Zanzibar: A Where-in-the-World Guide to 300+ Places (Capital Travels) by Don Hausrath...

Test your knowledge with modern explorers as they roam the world's great places--real and mythical, ancient and contemporary, celebrated and obscure--unearthing curious facts and cultural gems. Arranged in the time-honored A to Z manner so loved by these two scholars, their explorations range over more than 300 biblical, historical, mythical, literary and real places with curious facts and suggested readings for each. Includes: *Armageddon-- An ancient fortified city in Palestine and the most important archaeological site in present day Israel . . . It was here in 1468 BCE that an Egyptian army led by Pharaoh Thutmuse III attacked the Canaanite army controlling Megiddo. *Lascaux Cave--Located above the Vezere River Valley close to the town of Montignac, Dordogne, in southwest central France contains the most extensive and well preserved examples of prehistoric art of all caves in Ice Age Europe. *Amazonia--The fabled land of formidable women warriors who played a prominent role in Greek mythology. *Asbestos, Canada--A small city in the southern part of the province of Quebec, 26 miles north of Sherbrooke, not only does this town have a unique name based on the discovery of asbestos here in 1878, but it has also played an important role in Canadian labor history.
