A Texas oilman. A brilliant female archaeologist. An unknown world beneath St. Peter’s. In 1939, workers digging beneath the great basilica in Rome unearthed an early Christian grave. The surprising discovery launched a quest for the long-lost burial place of the Apostle Peter. Funded anonymously by a wealthy American, a small army of archaeologists embarked on the dig of a lifetime. The incredible, sometimes shocking, story of the 75-year search and its key players has never been fully told until, The Fisherman’s Tomb, the story of the triumph of faith and genius against all odds.
