History Revealed – April 2023
English | 86 pages | pdf | 190.21 MB

With a vast empire that stretched from modern-day Argentina to southern Colombia, the Inca civilisation flourished for more than a hundred years before its 16th-century downfall at the hands of Spanish conquistadors. For this month’s Essential Guide, we’ve enlisted the help
of archaeologist and expert Professor Bill Sillar to learn what life was like for the Inca – from the creation of incredible stone cities such as Machu Picchu to religious beliefs, daily life and the Spanish conquest. Turn to page 27 to get started.
Elsewhere, we revisit the nightmare faced by survivors of the heavy cruiser USS Indianapolis, which was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine in July 1945 and sank in the shark-infested waters of the Philippine Sea (page 53). We also take a look at some incredible hoax photographs from history – from fairies and UFOs, to ghosts and the Loch Ness Monster (page 58), examine how England and France might have changed had Henry V lived longer (page 64), and share some fascinating facts about Scottish history (page 24).
Plus, we’ll also be delving into the life of Bessie Coleman, the first woman of African-American and Native American heritage to gain a pilot’s licence (page 20), and exploring the intriguing story of Princess Caraboo (page 14).
See you next month!
