Could the story of mankind be far older than we have previously believed? Using tools as varied as archaeo-astronomy, geology, and computer analysis of ancient myths, Graham Hancock presents a compelling case to suggest that it is.
“A fancy piece of historical sleuthing . . . intriguing and entertaining and sturdy enough to give a long pause for thought.”—Kirkus Reviews
In Fingerprints of the Gods, Hancock embarks on a worldwide quest to put together all the pieces of the vast and fascinating jigsaw of mankind’s hidden past. In ancient monuments as far apart as Egypt’s Great Sphinx, the strange Andean ruins of Tihuanaco, and Mexico’s awe-inspiring Temples of the Sun and Moon, he reveals not only the clear fingerprints of an as-yet-unidentified civilization of remote antiquity, but also startling evidence of its vast sophistication, technological advancement, and evolved scientific knowledge.
A record-breaking number one bestseller in Britain, Fingerprints of the Gods contains the makings of an intellectual revolution, a dramatic and irreversible change in the way that we understand our past—and so our future.
And Fingerprints of God tells us something more. As we recover the truth about prehistory, and discover the real meaning of ancient myths and monuments, it becomes apparent that a warning has been handed down to us, a warning of terrible cataclysm that afflicts the Earth in great cycles at irregular intervals of time—a cataclysm that may be about to recur.
“Readers will hugely enjoy their quest in these pages of inspired storytelling.”—The Times (UK)
This book should be in schools and should substitute the history books that are used in our still used very old system. My view of history has been changed for ever and I’ll just go on and read the next book in line from Graham. Research will set us free55
One of the Best books I’ve ever read. Absolutely loved it..,15
Fantastic book by Mr. Graham Hamcock...a must read.. Excited for the upcoming sequel. In the meantime I'll be reading his fiction based novel 'war gods'55
In short, Hancock has done his research and this book reflects that. His seemingly endless and fantastically intriguing references led to a compelling argument that blew my mind every 10 pages. I definitely recommend this book and plan on reading it through again in the near future.55
One of the books that started it all, in terms of questioning the established version of history and the origins of human civilization. Very well supported researched, with very intriguing questions being raised, though never in a very outlandish way. Amazing!55
If I were stuck on an island with only one book I think it would have to be this one.55
