Fingerprints Of The Gods

Investigative journalist and bestselling author of controversial history books, including bestseller The Sign and the Seal, uncovers the evidence of Earth's lost civilisation.

A revolutionary rewrite of history that has persuaded millions of readers throughout the world to change their preconceptions about the origins of modern society.

This groundbreaking evidence includes:

· Evidence of the devastating scientific and astronomical information encoded into prehistoric myths.
· The incredible construction of the great pyramids of Egypt and of megalithic temples on the Giza plateau.
· The mysterious astronomical alignments of the pyramids and the Great Sphinx.
· The megalithic temples of the Andes.
· The myths of Viracocha and Quetzalcoatl.
· The pyramids of the Sun and the Moon in Mexico.
· The doomsday calendar and eerie memories of the ancient Maya.
· The warning from the Hopi of Arizona.

Part one of a trilogy, followed by MAGICIANS OF THE GODS and AMERICA BEFORE
