The Somerton Man
In December 1948, the body of an unidentified male was found on Somerton Beach in Adelaide, South Australia. It initially appeared the man had simply passed away in his sleep but as police looked into his death, they discovered a series of bizarre and unexplainable clues that presented more questions than answers.
The Somerton Man, also known as the case of the Taman Shud, became one of Adelaide’s longest-running and most enduring mysteries. Was the Somerton Man an international spy? If so, what was he doing in the sleepy town of Adelaide? And what significance did the ancient Persian text hold that was found hidden in his pockets?
