“In 1982 the American scholar Charles Hapgood made an astonishing claim to a young librarian, Rand Flem-Ath, that civilization was almost 100 000 years old, and that he had the evidence to prove it. But before he could substantiate these remarkable assertions, Hapgood was tragically killed in a car crash. Together with fellow author Colin Wilson, Flem-Ath set out to track down the truth behind the scholar’s statements. Their study of the world’s most sacred sites – Stonehenge, the Great Pyramids, Machu Picchu and many others – led them to an amazing discovery. These monuments formed a powerful and undeniable geometrical pattern, implying the existence of an ancient advanced civilization whose knowledge of the world was far wider than had previously been thought possible.
Presenting its argument with enormous persuasiveness, The Atlantis Blueprint makes a truly powerful claim: that our civilization is not the first to occupy the planet – nor is it likely to be the last.
‘Provides compelling evidence that Atlantis not only existed but was, in fact the cradle of an advanced and highly sophisticated civilization that spanned the world as far back as 100 000 years ago ‘ Daily Mail ‘Racily written … as entertaining as any airport novel’ Birmingham Post”
