Product description

In this autobiographical book, the internationally acclaimed author, Zecharia Sitchin, reveals the foundational research and the adventurous expeditions that resulted in his writing the bestselling "Earth Chronicles" series. Ranging from Mayan temples in Mexico to hidden artefacts in Istanbul, from biblical tunnels in Jerusalem to the mysteries of Mt. Sinai, from the abode of a Sumerian goddess to Greek islands, the Expeditions' destinations and amazing discoveries unmasked established fallacies, detected the fate of mysterious artefacts and revealed ancient connections to modern space facilities.For the first time, Sitchin shares with the reader not only his encompassing knowledge of antiquity and his field experiences, but, also, the concrete evidence for his conclusions that ancient myths were recollections of factual events, that the gods of ancient peoples were visitors to Earth from another planet and that we are not alone in our own solar system. Accompanied by photographs from his personal archive, here is Sitchin's own story and his inner feelings about the cord that binds him to his ancestral past. It also reveals archaeological cover-ups concerning Olmec origins in Mexico and ancient UFO artefacts in Turkey.
