The Man Who ''Invented'' The Aztec Crystal Skulls (eBook)
The Adventures Of Eugène Boban
de Jane Maclaren Walsh e Brett Topping
Sobre o livro
Eugène Boban began life in humble circumstances in Paris, traveled to the California Gold Rush, and later became a recognized authority on pre-Columbian cultures. He also invented an entire category of archaeological artifact: the Aztec crystal skull. By his own admission, he successfully palmed off a number of these crystal skulls on the curators of Europes leading museums. How could that happen, and who was this man? Detailed are the travels, self-education, and archaeological explorations of Eugène Boban; this book also explores the circumstances that allowed him to sell fakes to museums that would remain undetected for over a century.
