Information:

Based on his best-selling book, The Mysterium, David Bramwell draws on contemporary folklore, weird science and bizarre phenomena to explore some of the strangest and most enduring mysteries of the 21st century.

• What modern mysteries lie within the internet?
• Why have ghostly number stations been transmitting coded messages across our airwaves for 6 decades?
• Why do human feet keep washing up on a beach in British Columbia?
• Why are a million Japanese unable to leave their bedrooms?
• Who is the mysterious Toynbee Tiler who embedded the message ‘Resurrect Dead on Planet Jupiter’ in over 600 linoleum tiles across the roads of North and South America?
• What are the cargo cults of Melanesia and why is Prince Philip worshipped as a god there?
• Did Carl Jung solve the mystery of UFOs?
• What remains the greatest mystery on Earth?


In Bramwell’s guiding hands Modern Mysteries and Weird Wonders will leave you entertained and reeling in the knowledge that the world is just as mysterious today as it was to our ancestors thousands of years ago.
