Yes they were the DARPA of the day!
John Emsley, Sunday Times "Marshall is no desk top researcher, but to write the book embarked on a journey in the footsteps of some of the key practitioners, a quest which takes him to Beijing, Egypt, France, Spain and beyond and leads to encounters with many contemporary philosophers, alchemists and scientists, all searching not so much for fame or fortune but for the ultimate prize of enlightenment. This appealing combination of travelogue and inner journey is well served by the author's friendly, conversational tone and his ability to make sometimes complex ideas thoroughly accessible without short changing the reader. Myth, magic, religion and intrigue come together here to offer an intriguing alternative view of the history of civilisation's development."

I'm sorry but it's a load of bunkum - being an antiques expert I can tell you that image showing the table - the table is completely and totally wrong for the period, there would NOT still be rolled up parchemnts (or paper as it looks to me), and the wine glass with a bit of red liquid still in it?
It's a guff story and shows the dangers of beleiving anything you see in any news outlet.
