Quando i ghiacci si sciolsero tra 15.000 e 8000 anni fa e il livello del mare si alzò, l'acqua coprì più di 25.000 chilometri quadrati di terra abitabile alterando radicalmente la forma del mondo. Partendo dallo studio di antiche leggende indiane sul diluvio e da testimonianze riportate nei testi sacri dei Veda, e collaborando con archeologi e geologi sottomarini, Graham Hancock ha scoperto significative tracce dell'esistenza di importanti civiltà lungo le coste del sub-continente indiano. Templi sommersi tra le onde di Malta, un'antichissima città sprofondata al largo dell'India, monumenti adagiati sui fondali giapponesi, misteriosi scaloni subacquei nelle acque delle Maldive? Un emozionante viaggio alla ricerca delle risposte al grande quesito delle origini della nostra civiltà.

Explored underwater archaeology with Mr Hancock. Found his theories interesting, but 'over the top.' The book's segment about Ancient Japan/Jomon held my attention ... Would like to read a condensed version of his research, one less speculative ...
An enormous and fantastic early book of Hancock’s path towards proving the existence of lost civilizations. This one was written in the late 90s and very early 2000s, pre 9/11, and its leisurely pace differs from his latter books. I don’t know whether to attribute this to the different mindset prese Leggi tutto
An entertaining book. I like the idea that there was a world wide civilization that was the source of the flood myth that seem to be common among different cultures. It makes sense that human beings sailed and settled all over the world in the past 20,000 years and mapped it and observed the stars.
Was given the book to borrow due to my likings of all weird things History (I am currently watching that ridiculous Ancient Aliens show which should tell you a lot about me-no aliens in this book, thankfully). This was overall a pretty dry read, but there were some interesting bits here and there. I Leggi tutto
Demonstrates that remains of ancient (pre 8,000-10,000 BCE) cultures would most likely be found off present coasts, as sea level has risen hundreds of feet since the end of the last ice age.
The Mind Game of Interpreting Mythology: The book is a monument.. a big fat volume with small fonts and compressed spacing, of exactly 674 pages –if you excuse yourself from the postscripts and appendices, and at the end of the book, Hancock rues “ even so, there has not been space in this book for m Leggi tutto
This should be required reading for students in ancient history and archeology. The data is stunning. I'm very glad the author took the time (and money) to research and write this book. It is not light reading, as Hancock writes meticulously, probably in order to be verifiable in his assumptions, to Leggi tutto
A brilliantly research book which opens our eyes to so much hidden under water, across the world. I was truly amazed by the in-depth research done by Graham Hancock, it truly is his passion. There is so much more to learn. This book opened up a whole new path for me to pursue further study and gain
