Because of the efforts of scribes and scholars, we are still able to take a look into the past and know where we came from. But for all of the books that changed history, there are countless others that held knowledge now lost to the ages. Such tomes included: inventions that question what we thought we know of ancient civilization, the true story behind one of the most notorious poets who ever lived, and even a book that shaped the English langage…a book that may have never even existed in the first place! In this episode, Relic and the crew of the Frankenpod examine a few famous titles that you’ll never get to read.
