In a time when the world realised just how fragile it is, author and archeologist Mark Olly’s new book “Crystal Skulls and Human Heads” brings a new view of what it means to be human, what the planet really is, how extinction is simply a part of nature and how the whole of life we so comfortably fit in to may not be quite what it seems.

From the muddled history of crystal skulls, to the fall of ancient civilizations and epoch defining cataclysmic events, myself and Mark look at hidden histories and new discoveries to consider that things are never as cut and dried as some may wish us to believe.

Mark takes us out of our comfort zone this week and I thank him for that.
