A brief history of UFOs by Dr David Clarke

Dr David Clarke, co-founder of the Centre for Contemporary Legend, has written an article for BBC History Extra outlining a brief history and a list of the top ten notable sightings of UFOs in the UK from the bast century. He says that the birth of the modern UFO era can be traced to 1946-47 when media interest coalesced around the first sighting of ‘flying saucers’.
