– Graham Hancock


Hancock risked his life in a series of daring scuba dives to investigate

the ruins of underwater cities from the Mediterranean to the coast

of Japan, and now offers us a compelling new explanation for the

origin of civilisation as we know it in “Underworld”.

Much of the ancient world inherited by our ancestors now lies under

water after melting ice caps flooded vast areas at the end of the

last Ice Age.


advances in geology and marine technology mean that the great archaeological

finds of this coming century will more than likely be found under the

oceans.It now looks highly likely that large populations of early humans

were obliterated from the historical record by this catastrophe, over

10,000 years ago. But who were these populations — pre-civilised hunter-gathers

or more sophisticated peoples altogether? Graham Hancock takes us on an

exciting new quest to find out some of the answers.”

“Voices of the Rocks”

Dr Robert M. Schoch

“The great 19th-century battle between catastrophists and uniformitarians seemed to end with the notion of global cataclysms being dismissed as a back door to the supernatural.

But the catastrophist theory has gradually become more and more plausible, so that now, less than a hundred years later, it is widely believed that mass extinctions are linked to meteor strikes.


Robert M. Schoch believes that if a large meteor or comet could extinguish

most of our planet’s complex life (just ask the

trilobites), then a smaller one could destroy a civilization, and

perhaps did. In “Voices of the Rocks”,

he tells us how it may have happened. Asked to investigate the Sphinx

at Giza, Schoch was troubled to find evidence of a much greater age than

the 4,500 years suggested by Egyptologists.


led him to examine the possibility of a lost civilization dating back

to at least 10,000 B.C. Looking at linguistic, geological, and archaeological

evidence from around the world, he proposes an outline of prehistory that

differs markedly from our received wisdom–after all, if the Lascaux cave

paintings really are star maps, then we’ve got a lot of catching up to

“Heaven’s Mirror”

– Graham Hancock

“It could be true! That’s the enthusiasm that author and scholar-mystic

Graham Hancock counts on — in himself and in his readers — as

he lays down his theories of an ancient (Atlantean,

perhaps?) civilization that disseminated a sophisticated

religion of ground-sky dualism and a “science” of immortality.


previous work, including the popular and controversial

“Fingerprints of the Gods”, has drawn criticism for its leaps

of faith and allegedly pseudoscientific conclusions, but “Heaven’s

Mirror” proves at least a little more substantial.

His chief thesis is that numerous ancient sites and monuments — the

pyramids of Mexico and Egypt, the ruins of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, the

monuments of Yonaguni in the Pacific, and the megaliths of Peru and Bolivia

— are situated in such a way, geodetically, that they point towards some

separate and uniform influence, some lost civilization or “invisible college”

of astronomer-priests. Whatever you think of Hancock’s ideas and theoretical

musings in archaeo-astronomy, “Heaven’s

Mirror” is a gorgeous book, thanks to the photography of Santha

Faiia. Lush, evocative photos of the monoliths on Easter Island and temples

deep in the Cambodian jungle are enough to set the mind to introspective



just maybe, Hancock’s got it right after all.”

this set of three videotapes, writer Graham Hancock traverses the world

and explains his controversial theory that an ancient civilization, highly

intelligent people who sailed the planet as early as 10,500 B.C., spread

advanced astronomical knowledge and built ancient observatories. Skeptics

may scoff, but Hancock earnestly points out similarities in giant stone

structures in the Egyptian desert and Cambodian jungles, and on Easter

Island and in Micronesia, he points out what he considers evidence of

an ancient society of seafarers.


ideas may seem utterly bizarre at first, but Hancock presents them in

an understated and good-natured manner, and he also makes clever use of

computer graphics and aerial photography to illustrate the startling similarities

in ancient structures found from the North Atlantic to the South Pacific.

At times the three documentaries overlap, and at times they seem like

one long program rather than three separate presentations.


throughout, Hancock raises some puzzling questions, and even if you don’t

buy his arguments, bolstered though they are by mathematical equations

and astronomical diagrams, the

“Quest for the Lost Civilization” is an entertaining mixture of

archaeology, astronomy, and speculation”.

undersea relics near Okinawa offer proof of a sophisticated civilization

during the last ice age? Archeologists have long believed that civilization

as we define it — intelligent, tool-making, monument building, social

humans — began about 5,000 years ago. But submerged beneath the waves

near the Japanese island of Yonaguni is evidence that may well overturn

that long-held theory.

A small but persuasive number of scholars and scientists have long thought

that “advanced” societies may have existed as long as 10,000 years ago.

Their theories, however well reasoned and defended, have been hamstrung

by a lack of evidence. But recent discoveries of man-made artifacts on

the Pacific seafloor may well prove to be the smoking gun that will propel

this alternative view of civilization to prominence.HISTORY’S

MYSTERIES travels to the site and plunges beneath the waves

to examine the discovery, and talks to the investigators who are trying

to unearth the secrets it holds.

The answers remain unknown, but the questions themselves may forever change

some of the most basic assumptions about our past.”
