In our digital world, it is unusual to find ourselves in unknown territory.
If unicorns did exist, I imagine it would have been a long time ago – back in the late classical period and the early middle ages, when the world was full of ‘the unknown’.
Europeans had yet to discover America or Australia, and whole areas of the planet were unmapped and full of monsters and wonders.
Faced with emptiness, the medieval mind made real what had been legend or tales of legends elsewhere, brought back by early travellers.
There are no lost wildernesses to discover out there in the 21st century, no Victoria Falls, no Komodo dragons.
