Full description for Before the Pharaohs
Presents conclusive evidence that ancient Egypt was originally the remnant of an earlier, highly sophisticated civilisation. In the late nineteenth century, French explorer Augustus Le Plongeon, after years of research in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, concluded that the Mayan and Egyptian civilisations were related - as remnants of a once greater and highly sophisticated culture. The discoveries of modern researchers over the last two decades now support this once derided speculation with evidence revealing that the Sphinx is thousands of years older than Egyptologists have claimed, that the pyramids were not tombs but geomechanical power plants and that the megaliths of the Nabta Playa reveal complex astronomical star maps that existed 4,000 years before conventional historians deemed such knowledge possible. Much of the past support for prehistoric civilisation has relied on esoteric traditions and mythic narrative. Using hard scientific evidence from the fields of archaeology, genetics, engineering and geology, as well as sacred and religious texts, Malkowski shows that these mythic narratives are based on actual events and that a highly sophisticated civilisation did once exist prior to those of Egypt and Sumer. Tying its cataclysmic fall to the mysterious disappearance of Cro-Magnon culture, "Before The Pharaohs" offers a compelling new view of humanity's past.
