L'autore intraprende una ricerca ad ampio raggio per mettere insieme i pezzi dell'enorme e misterioso puzzle della dimenticata preistoria dell'umanità. Nelle antiche rovine di diverse popolazioni, vengono alla luce non solo le impronte di un popolo sconosciuto che prosperò durante l'ultima glaciazione, ma anche i segni di un'intelligenza superiore. Mettendo insieme i miti e leggende universali, Hancock scopre tracce di uno specifico linguaggio scientifico decodificando i risultati di millenni di accurate osservazioni astronomiche. Utilizza poi le tecniche più evolute di geologia e astronomia per dimostrare che la datazione di molti siti archeologici potrebbe essere molto più antica di quanto creduto.

I am willing to admit that I am a huge fan of alternative histories/unorthodox scientific explanations. This text falls into the general category that your average reader is going to label as 'conspiracy theory.' It is also likely that you have run into someone during your life who reads "conspirac
Now for what started out as a stream-of-consciousness criticism of Graham Hancock. Where Erich Von Daniken is goofy, Hancock is far more insidious. Having meandered through a great part of "Isis Unveiled" a year or two ago, I found some commonalities between Hancock and the old Theosophists like Mada Leggi tutto
So a little background, I have always been obsessed with unexplained phenomena. As a 10 year-old boy, I would walk to the public library and check out multiple books on the Loch Ness Monster, Sasquatch, The Pyramids, Easter Island, etc.... It was just ingrained in me that if there was a TV show on a Leggi tutto
It's worth reading the science skeptic reviews on this book. For me, it passes the science test, and for open minded types who are interested in alternate historical explanations that don't require aliens or other deus ex machina to explain some unexplainables, this is a special treat. My main issues Leggi tutto
A seismographic expedition to Antarctica in 1949 first established its detailed land coastline – not the ice cap, which itself lay undiscovered until 1820. So far as we know, the ice cap has been there for at least 6,000 years. Now, what would you say to the claim that the accurate land coastline of Leggi tutto
I am, I'm afraid, a non-believer. Hancock is an excellent wordsmith, but his theories are akin to my grandmother's understanding of smart phones: they ramble on and on, occasionally sound good when one piece is sorta right, but in sum just a total mess of uncertain logic based on really shoddy premi Leggi tutto
Love Graham Hancock's books. If you love to steer away from the status quo. If you would like to turn a blind eye to the mainstream rhetoric and propaganda and wish to look at an alternative view; or enlightened view; about our Earth's distant past then I recommend Graham Hancock. His books really d Leggi tutto
So intriguing! Had a really hard time putting this down. I admire Graham Hancock for the depth of his research and the restraint to not commit to only one solution to the many questions asked by this thought provoking work. As hard as it may be for an author to leave the door open to multiple possib Leggi tutto
I’ve always been fascinated by prehistoric man – that is, man’s ancient history that precedes written records. It’s striking that, in our present form, human beings have been around for at least 75,000 years, but our written record and thus our best connection to the past only goes back a little ove Leggi tutto
Excellent book, very though provoking. Huge amounts of data and research as one takes a voyage with G. Hancock through his global research voyage hunting to discover the truth. The sheer volume of data presented in this book will either be something you appreciate [because it makes his case very stro Leggi tutto
