    The Sunday Times top 10 best seller

    Was an advanced civilisation lost to history in the global cataclysm that ended the last Ice Age? Graham Hancock, the internationally best-selling 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 quest to a stunning conclusion.

    We've been taught that North and South America were empty of humans until around 13,000 years ago - amongst the last great landmasses on earth to have been settled by our ancestors. But new discoveries have radically reshaped this long-established picture and we know now that the Americas were first peopled more than 130,000 years ago - many tens of thousands of years before human settlements became established elsewhere.

    Hancock'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 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. Have archaeologists focused for too long only on the 'Old World' in their search for the origins of civilisation 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 Civilisation is the culmination of everything that millions of people 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.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Hancock's books provide a fascinating, alternative version of prehistory. America Before, detailed and wide-ranging, turns what was myth and legend into a new story of the past." (Daily Mail

    Interesting, but too long

    Interesting, but too long for actual evidence presented.
    it feels that there was a lot of time spent explaining facts that didn't really support the theory. There was very little information and evidence presented supporting the actual theory. However those are really interesting and were well presented. overall the book could be 10 hours long and it would be perfectly fine.

    Traces of a lost civilization

    Fascinating summary ot research on ancient native American peoples, their astronomy, architecture and religious beliefs. And what it tells us about the lost civilization of the ice age.

    Mind blowing

    The idea of an ancient civilization destroyed by the younger dryas impact is just fascinating. No matter if it’s true or not. I hope it is.

    Edited: I take back everything I’ve said. Genius!

    New: I’ve listen to the whole audiobook and now I understand the reason of scientific data’s and the extrem detailed narration. It’s pure genius if you get it.
    Old: While I was introduced to Mr. Hancocks amazing findings and work through the Joe Rogan Podcast, I am highly disappointed that this book is basically a couple hours of geographical narratives of locations and data’s which I could let the Wikipedia app read to me for free. However the importance of this data is unarguable.
