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.

   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 Tiahuanaco, 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 best-seller in Britain, Fingerprints of the Gods Contains the makings of an intellectual revolution, a dramatic and irreversible change in the way that we understand out past--and so our future.

And Fingerprints of the Gods 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.
