A Quest for The Beginning and The End
Fingerprints of the Gods is a revolutionary rewrite of history that has persuaded millions of readers throughout the world to change their preconceptions about the history behind modern society.
“Fingerprints of the Gods” is a book written by British writer and journalist Graham Hancock. The book was first published in 1995 and has since been translated into 27 languages, selling an estimated five million copies worldwide.
The book presents a compelling case to suggest that the story of mankind could be far older than previously believed, using tools such as archaeo-astronomy, geology, and computer analysis of ancient myths. In the book, Hancock embarks on a worldwide quest to put together all the pieces of the vast and fascinating jigsaw of mankind's hidden past. The book argues for a civilisation centered on Antarctica that supposedly left evidence in ancient Egypt and American civilisations such as the Olmec, Aztec, and Maya. The book has been described as a “fancy piece of historical sleuthing” that is intriguing and entertaining. It has also been criticised for its reliance on fringe writers and its synthesis of their ideas. Despite this, the book has been a record-breaking number one bestseller in Britain and contains the makings of an intellectual revolution, a dramatic and irreversible change in the way that we understand our past and future.
Fingerprints of the Gods: The Evidence of Earth's Lost Civilisation is a 1995 ancient archeology book by Graham Hancock, in which the author echoes 19th-century writer Ignatius Donnelly, author of Atlantis: The Antediluvian World, in contending that an enigmatic, ancient, advanced civilisation existed in prehistory, one which served as the common progenitor civilisation to all subsequent known ancient historical ones.
