The Mysterious Origins of Civilisation, with Graham Hancock

Graham Hancock, through his latest non-fiction work, America Before: The Key to Earth's Lost Civilisation, will be sharing the results of his explosive new investigation into the prehistory of the Americas. He showcases scientific proof of a long-lost ancient civilisation which began during the Ice Age in the (misnamed) ‘New World’, and then spread around the globe, leaving its traces in ancient monuments such as the Egyptian pyramids and Stonehenge, and in the genetic makeup of peoples living as far away as Australia. Hancock's research takes readers on a series of journeys and encounters with the scientists responsible for the recent extraordinary breakthroughs that are allowing a new view of our past to emerge. 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. Hancock follows the clues to their source in the devastated heartland of the lost civilisation.
