The Real History Behind the Da Vinci Code
by Sharan Newman  
Millions have been enthralled by The Da Vinci Code's fascinating historical speculations-and the blockbuster novel's audience has also made bestsellers of several books offering to separate the facts from the fiction. This comprehensive, encyclopedic volume is written by an acclaimed medievalist-and takes an objective, history-based approach to the phenomenon and the questions it has raised. 

The Real History Behind the Da Vinci Code gives easy-to-find, clear answers about the people, places, and events that play roles in Dan Brown's tantalizing thriller in a lively, encyclopedic format-shedding new light on some of the deepest mysteries of the Dark Ages. 

Further, the author has visited all of the sites in France and England which are settings in The Da Vinci Code, offering unprecedented insight into these locations -- for armchair travellers, or for fans who wish to go and visit these sites themselves.
