Book Description

June 1 1998
Could the story of mankind be far older than we have previously believed?  Using tools as varied as archaeo-astronomy, geology, and computer analysis of ancient myths.  Graham Hancock presents a compelling case to suggest that it is.

   In Fingerprints of the Gods, Hancock embarks on a worldwide quest to put together all the pieces of the vast and fascinating jigsaw of mankind's hidden past.  In ancient monuments as far apart as Egypt's Great Sphinx, the strange Andean ruins of Tiahuanaco, and Mexico's awe-inspiring Temples of the Sun and Moon, he reveals not only the clear fingerprints of an as-yet-unidentified civilization of remote antiquity, but also startling evidence of its vast sophistication, technological advancement, and evolved scientific knowledge.

  A record-breaking number one best-seller in Britain, Fingerprints of the Gods Contains the makings of an intellectual revolution, a dramatic and irreversible change in the way that we understand out past--and so our future.

And Fingerprints of the Gods tells us something more.  As we recover the truth about prehistory, and discover the real meaning of ancient myths and monuments, it becomes apparent that a warning has been handed down to us, a warning of terrible cataclysm that afflicts the Earth in great cycles at irregular intervals of time- a cataclysm that may be about to recur.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fingerprints, or actual footsteps? Aug. 24 2003
I have never read a book that stimulates my mind more than
"Fingerprints of the Gods". It's a true journey through time space and mythology, one that sucks you right in. There's no way you can put this book down. A truly wonderful piece of writing that will make you think; could this really happen? Have we as such a technologically advanced race actually forgotten an entire civilization. A civilization just as advanced, or maybe even more so, than our own? It makes you wonder why such obvious historical information has been so blatantly ignored. Anyone who is even remotely interested in ancient mythology should try this book. Whether you believe or not, it is guaranteed to make you think.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is absolutely amazing! Nov. 28 1998
By A Customer
This is the most thought provoking book I have ever read. Once I started reading it I couldn't put it down. This is the first theory about the pyramids that actually makes sense and doesn't have any loose ends. This book is for people who like to think and who are open minded to new ideas. It follows Graham Hancock around the world as he explores many mysteries that have puzzled us for years, but then he discovers that they are all linked to once ancient source. I cannot say enough good things about this book, see for yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic study of the ruins we are living on. Feb. 9 2013
Verified Purchase
Graham Hancock is a must for those interested in the real History of humankind, without falling into fantasy, or hypothesis based on nothing, Graham does the work of a scientist and a investigator with an open mind, contrary to the typical archaeologists who continue to propagate wrong historic events every time they cannot explain with intelligence.

Hancock is following in the footsteps of Däniken among others, and if you're interested in alternative history, this is a must-read! A classic book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book!! July 26 2013
By Carina TOP 1000 REVIEWER
This is a must have for those interested in history, anthropology, and even the occult. The author is well rounded in terms of knowledge related to his writings. His ideas are presented clearly, explained through diagrams, and elaborated upon with factual evidence. Great job with this book and others written by him. I have the utmost respect for Graham Hancock

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but... Oct. 23 2003
He writes well and has numerous interesting ideas. However, single pieces of evidence do not a science make. In all of his discounting and badmouthing of conventional Egyptologists and Archeologists, he fails to mention that while he can build an airtight explanation out of what evidence he selectively presents, they must be more restrained in how far they move with the TOTAL amount of evidence (for and against). Still a well-written and interesting read that raises many intersting questions and theories. The Sign and the Seal was also very good.

This book is full of scientific nonsense. The author should have educated himself a little about geological processes before writing it. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Not that good
This book is interesting in its assertion that there may have been an advanced civilization prior to the Aztecs, Egyptions, and so on. But it has to be taken with a grain of salt. Read more
