America Before: The Key to Earth’s Lost Civilization
Was an advanced civilization lost to history in the global cataclysm that ended the last Ice Age? Bestselling author Graham Hancock has made it his life’s work to find out — and in his new book America Before, he draws on the latest archaeological and DNA evidence to bring his quest to a stunning conclusion.
Hancock’s research, copiously illustrated in this special presentation for San Mateo New Living Expo, takes us on a series of journeys and encounters with the scientists responsible for recent extraordinary breakthroughs in our knowledge of American prehistory. In the process, from the Mississippi Valley to the Amazon rainforest, he reveals that ancient ‘New World’ cultures share a legacy of advanced scientific knowledge and sophisticated spiritual beliefs with supposedly unconnected ‘Old World’ cultures. Have archaeologists focussed for too long only on the ‘Old World’ in their search for the origins of civilization while failing to consider the revolutionary possibility that those origins might in fact be found in the ‘New World’?
GRAHAM HANCOCK is the author of the major international non-fiction bestsellers The Sign and the Seal, Fingerprints of the Gods, The Message of the Sphinx, Heaven’s Mirror, Underworld and Supernatural, and of the epic adventure novels Entangled and War God. He has become recognised as an unconventional thinker who raises resonant questions about humanity’s past and about our present predicament. His new book, America Before: The Key to Earth’s Lost Civilization, will be published in the US on 23 April 2019.
