Description

A revolution of thought is under way in our world, fostered by decades of research and well-documented evidence by alternative theory pioneers such as Graham Hancock, John Anthony West, Robert Bauval, and Robert Schoch. These provocative, cutting-edge scholars now represent a direct challenge to the academic establishment as the paradigms of science and history shift and their ideas gain acceptance. Representing the latest, often controversial findings in scientific and historical research, this anthology of essays commissioned by Graham Hancock, bestselling author of Fingerprints of the Gods, covers the forefront in alternative theories on history, the origins of civilization, technology, and consciousness with topics ranging from quantum philosophy and paranormal phenomena to the ancient use of electromagnetism, the effect of cosmic rays on human evolution, and NASA's cover-up of ancient Martian civilizations. Recognizing that many recent discoveries are actually rediscoveries of lost knowledge from past civilizations, these authors seek to understand where, within the bigger picture of human knowledge, our present time fits into the cycle of human existence.

Review quote

"The face of archaeology has been irrevocably changed . . . This volume brings together a series of essays which explores many aspects of this new domain with papers covering diverse. . ." * Living Traditions Magazine, January 2011 * "Fascinating! That's how I found the theories in Lost Knowledge of the Ancients." * Irene Watson, Reader Views, October 2010 * "Altogether, the reflections of these frontier investigators provide a big-picture perspective on the cycle of human existence which challenges orthodox knowledge. If you've not read their works before, this anthology is an ideal place to start." * Nexus Magazine, Vol. 17, No.8, October 2010 * "These accounts of `lost' or anomalous knowledge are building blocks of an alternative universe, and, taken altogether, they reveal something of the deep structure of this alternative universe. They also show that this universe made up of anomalies may be more real than the everyday, commonsensical one!" * Mark Booth, author of The Secret History of the World * "This incredible anthology introduces the revolutionary work of cutting-edge researchers who are currently defining a new view of not only the high level of science and technology in the remote past but also the relationship of humanity to cosmic cycles over vast expanses of time. Lost Knowledge of the Ancients may hold the key to our future." * Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D., author of Voyages of the Pyramid Builders and Pyramid Quest *
