Bettany Hughes's 6 best books

Bettany Hughes is a historian and broadcaster. Her latest book is Istanbul: A Tale Of Three Cities. One of the author's six best books, as shared at the Daily Express:
THE AMAZONS by Adrienne Mayor

A comprehensive guide to the myth and reality of Amazon women. Mayor is a very accessible author but backs it up with acute scholarship. Ferocious warrior women really did exist in the Caucasus area and she reminds us that truth can be stranger than fiction.
