I was on CBS’s Sunday Morning on Sunday the 21st. Here’s an excerpt from the conversation:

“There was, by the end, a maniacal quality to him,” said Grann. “And I think with obsession, there are kind of two qualities about it: there is the fruits of obsession, which can lead to wonderful discoveries - Fawcett made many interesting discoveries - but there could also be a lethal quality to obsession, and in this case, there really was.”

“Hail, Britain’s Indiana Jones of the Amazon”

date: Jan 07, 2010 - Ben Macintyre, Times London

Great piece in The Times on Fawcett and recent discoveries in the Amazon:

Recent archaeological research, using satellite imagery and radar, has uncovered convincing proof of large pre-Columbian settlements in the very places where Fawcett searched and vanished: not merely houses, but moats, roads, bridges, avenues and squares laid out with geometric precision.

The latest discovery, reported in the journal Antiquity, has found more than 200 earthworks in the upper Amazon basin, some built in the 13th century but others dating back two centuries before Christ.

Sadly, deforestation of the Amazon is partly responsible for the discoveries. Read the rest of the article here: “Hail, Britain’s Indiana Jones of the Amazon”
