Graham Hancock the internationally bestselling author has made it his life's work to find out and in America Before he draws on the latest archaeological and DNA evidence to bring his uest to a stunning conclusionWe’ve been taught that North and South America were empty of humans until around 13000 years ago – amongst the last great landmasses on earth to have been settled by our ancestors But new discoveries have radically reshaped this long estab First of all I do like Graham Hancock no matter what the mainstream thinks of him or his ideas I don't know if I buy everything he is selling in every book but lots of his fringe ideas are starting to look mainstream like the Ark in Ethiopia if it in fact is really inside St Mary of Zion is another story and the weathering of the Sphinx by rain in a pre desert Egyptetc So that is my feelings on the authorsThis book had real promise but for me there was too much detail too much fluff that I got bored in parts It really could be edited down to about 220 250 pages Half of it were descriptions and calculations that I had no real interest in If you say that the top of this megalith aligns with the solstice I believe you If you're fibbing someone smarter than I will publish a paper refuting you I would have rather read a strip down book just giving the story and discoveries leaving all but the most vital details out I felt like it became a slog to make it to the endBut his proposal that there is a lost civilization doesn't seem loony I live not far from Meadowcroft so I am aware of the whole ClovisPre Clovis argument It wouldn't suprise me in the least if tomorrow somewhere in the Western Hemisphere they find a site that dates back to some remote part of antiuity that breaks all the rules If that mastodon site in San Diego is to be believed our ideas about the collective past of man are wrong and we need to take a second lookI think this would make a rad mini series or something Somebody get on that

Graham Hancock ´ America Before text

Lished picture and we know now that the Americas were first peopled than 130000 years ago – many tens of thousands of years before human settlements became established elsewhereHancock's research takes us on a series of journeys and encounters with the scientists responsible for the recent extraordinary breakthroughs In the process from the Mississippi Valley to the rainforest he reveals that ancient New World cultures share a legacy of advanced scientific knowledge and sophisticated spiritual beliefs with supposedly unconnected Old World culture I was really enthused to read this book given the glowing reviews and how little I know about the Americas before colonization And this book does have some really really interesting insights including ancient man made mounds crop behaviors in the and our ancestors' radically different relationship to the celestial universeHowever these insights are just buried between page after page of criticism of the scientific community I understand that Hancock fundamentally disagrees with their methods and conclusions and he might be totally right But this book is 34 criticism of existing theories and 14 insights about America Before For that reason it's incredibly hard to readPerhaps I am the wrong audience but this book is clearly not for someone like me a lay person that wants to learn about the ancient Americas Instead it's an extraordinarily in depth examination of all the reasons existing science on the Americas is flawed; which is fine it's just not the topic the cover suggests

doc ó America Before ´ Graham Hancock

America Before S Have archaeologists focused 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? America Before The Key to Earth's Lost Civilization is the culmination of everything that millions of readers have loved in Hancock's body of work over the past decades namely a mind dilating exploration of the mysteries of the past amazing archaeological discoveries and profound implications for how we lead our lives today Graham Hancock has become a victim of his own success what an amazing problem to have Let's face it there is no way to ever top Fingerprints of the Gods or to even match it Heck this latest book isn't even as good as Magicians of the Gods Months and months of buildup and promotion and you read this book and it's really good but it isn't earth shattering Perhaps the worst part is that Hancock's great storytelling gets lost in endless talk about scientific papers and a comet—which I thought we got than enough of in Magicians of the GodsIt is a good book it really is But for me it did not live up to the months and months of hype
