The 'Real' Indiana Jones: Percy Fawcett 1867

There are theories of course. Some believe he was murdered. Still, others believe he died of natural causes. Some even believe he is still alive, living in the subterranean city “Z,” founded by the Atlanteans.

Still, others believe he fell into unconsciousness, and when he awoke became king of a cannibal tribe.via
