Description
What is the name for the dot above a letter ‘i’? When did the first hippopotamus arrive in Britain? How many Trojan soldiers were transported within the Trojan horse? Another unputdownable selection of arcane, unnecessary and yet, utterly fascinating facts in bite-size entries to inform and entertain. Arranged alphabetically, from aa (a type of lava flow) to zyzzyva (a genus of tropical weevils). A wide-ranging encyclopaedia mixing history, geography, sport, culture, medicine, and much more. Written by William Hartson (b.1947), the Cambridge-educated British journalist and chess whizz, ‘The Encyclopaedia of Everything Else’ is a must-read follow-up to his popular book ‘The Bumper Book of things That Nobody Knows’.
