Factual title beautifully presented,
This review is from: Xanadu. Marco Polo and Europe's discovery of the East (Hardcover)
If you want to learn the truth behind historical events in an entertaining and factual ways then you really can't do better than John Man. A character within the historical world who believes in practical archaeology over guesswork. Entertaining, beautifully written and described in such a way that you can just remember a lot of the information quite easily, it was a real joy to experience the world of Marco Polo in the 21st Century. Definitely a book that will keep your own historians happy and perhaps one that could lead to your own holiday expedition.
