Episode 5 - Percy Fawcett and the Lost City of 'Z'


- - SHAM - -






In the early 1920's, novelist H. Rider Haggard -who was known for his adventure stories of ancient treasures and lost races - was in the possession of a 10 inch basalt figure.

He told British explorer Percy Fawcett that the figure was obtained in Brazil and he believed it was from one of the lost cities, bestowing the figure upon Fawcett as a gift. Fawcett backed up this claim by consulting the services of a medium, who described seeing pictures of an ancient city.

On this testimony, Fawcett and his son set out for the jungles of Brazil in search of the remnants of the city he called 'Z' which the explorer believed to be the remnants of Atlantis. Neither of them were ever seen again.
