The author has a highly controversial view of history and his
theory of a mysterious, lost civilization that brought knowledge to
other people around the world, has attracted a wide audience. In
this new large-format edition, Hancock responds to critics and
brings readers up to date with developments in the debate. He
exposes the eerie network of connections between: the Great Sphinx
and pyramids of Egypt; the Andean temples of Tianhuanaco; the
Mexican pyramids of the Sun and Moon; the lost continent that lies
beneath Antarctica; ancient knowledge of spherical geometry and
astro-navigation; the myths and legends of humanity that have
remained strangely consistent across geographical and social
divides; and new theories concerning the causes of the ice ages.
His new evidence suggests not only the "fingerprints" of an unknown
civilization that flourished during the last ice age but also
horrifying conclusions about the type and extent of planetary
catastrophe required to obliterate almost all traces of it.
Included are the BBC transcripts to the "Horizon" TV documentary.
