CRASH! BANG! RUMBLE! Do you hear those sounds? Faintly? In the distance? Just audible over outraged yells and howls of protest? Those are the sounds of the house of history collapsing and the furious yells and howls are from the archaeological establishment trying to drown out the truth with their noise.

The latest hint that archaeologists have completely misled us about the origins of civilization – and that their ‘house of history’ is built on foundations of sand — comes from a team of marine scientists and geologists diving in the Sicily Channel in the Mediterranean. You can read the full report, and get a clearer view of the sea-floor scans and photographic record, here: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2352409X15300535

Embarrassingly, the scientific team’s report has been published in a mainstream, peer-reviewed archaeological journal, but predictably archaeologists are already up in arms describing and seeking to dismiss the discovery as ‘whimsical and void of scientific meaning’. I’m not surprised that the establishment that has misled us for so long is doing its utmost to shout-down this extraordinary discovery which, in brief, includes the remnant of a giant megalithic site at a depth of 40 meters, including one 12 meter long menhir (now broken into two parts – see photographs), that is conservatively estimated to weigh 15 tons and to have been submerged by rising sea levels more than 9,000 years ago. How many thousands of years it was standing on the spot before the seas rose has not yet been established but the possibility must be seriously contemplated that it is the work of the same mysterious culture that created the giant stone circles of Gobekli Tepe in Turkey more than 11,600 years ago. It also raises increasingly disturbing questions about the age of other known megalithic sites around the Mediterranean – the oldest of which, such as Gigantija in Malta – have long been believed not to exceed 6,000 years in age. Yet all the known sites have been exposed to the presence and intrusions of later cultures that left their organic materials on-site and thus skewed the radio-carbon record to give falsely young dates. Where we have intact, undisturbed sites with no wriggle room for archaeologists to rest their case on carbon-dating of falsely-young, intrusive organic materials, then the picture of our past suddenly becomes very different and much, MUCH, older. Thus we can be sure of Gobekli Tepe’s age because it was deliberately buried by its makers more than 10,000 years ago and then left undiscovered and untouched until excavations began in the 1990’s. Likewise this newly discovered megalithic site off Sicily has been under water for more than 9,000 years and is therefore, undisputably at least that old.

I suggest that these discoveries, and parallel work at Gunung Padang in far-off Indonesia (that I have reported on extensively here over the past couple of years) require us to look again at the so-called “established” ages of megalithic sites everywhere. More than that, these discoveries require us to consider seriously the possibility attested to by myths and traditions from all around the world that we are indeed — as I have been saying for 20 years — a species with amnesia and that a lost civilization of the last Ice Age lies hidden in our collective past. This is the possibility that I explore in the greatest depth in my forthcoming book “Magicians of the Gods” that will be published in the UK on 10 September and in the US on 10 November. Further information about the book, and links through which you may pre-order your copy, can be found here: http://grahamhancock.com/magicians/

I will be on tour in the UK in September/October, and in the US in November/December giving presentations about Magicians of the Gods. The schedule of US events is still being worked out, but you can find details of most of the UK events here: http://grahamhancock.com/events/

    It is finally time that mainstream science caught up with the facts that has surrounded them for too many years to count. Mr. Hancock, you and others have shown proof time and time again of the existence of far more ancient civilizations than the stodgy conservatives in science will admit to. I believe this finding will open up many doors to the realities of how are world has really been populated, (advanced civilizations), well past 15-20,000 years ago. Finally!

    Amazing story. What techniques will be used to determine the date of the stone and since it has been under water for at least 9,000 years? What are the possibilities for the condition of the stone and when or will do you think we will hear about the results of the research?
    What information or websites could or should I follow for more information?
    very exciting, I wish you the best and hope you continue your passion for discovery,

    No surprise that the ‘mainstream’ is ignoring this since it doesn’t fit into the old beliefs of world history that were taught to our grandparents. Like the Kensington Stone and many hundreds of other artefacts that are ignored because widespread knowledge of such things might cause people to question the worlds history and the accuracy of the Bible (and threaten the power and control structure). Anyone who has read any of Mr. Hancock’s books should also read the many books by the late great Norsk anthropologist Thor Heyerdahl. The two are like pieces of the same puzzle that fit together well. I am also interested in how the age of 9,000 years was determined. I continue to question everything.

    And then there’s this:


    Dont know if you have an article detailing these monsters on this site, haven’t looked but – a cut and dressed stone bigger than the one at Balbeck? Thats something.

  5. John Collins says:

    Regarding the 12,800 BP event, has involvement of a planet-sized object been considered? If it passed very close to the Earth but did not actually impact it, there would be no crater but the graviational effects would be terrible. Additionally there could be electrical and magnetic interactions. Assuming that its path centered on that east-to-west path of the nano-diamonds, water in the Atlantic Ocean would likely be drawn up, carried westward, and then dropped on the ice and land of North America. A body like that would sweep the atmosphere aside, subjecting the area to the cold and vacuum of outer space. If gravitaional forces caused crustal movement, then we have an immediate source of widespread fires, and atmospheric pollution leading to cold times and little growth of plant and animal life. Live forms would suffer greatly and man-kind would fall back into hunter-gather society may be even pre-stone age.

    Thank you, Graham Hancock and his followers who are helping facilitate human kind’s shift in consciousness. This is a necessity. Cheers to us all!!

    I’m a long time fan and very appreciative of your work and devotion.

    In this age of more and more information about previous civilizations, I would heartily recommend you look into the work of Immanuel Velikovsky, The Electric Universe, Project Thunderbolts, David Talbott and Wallace Thornhill.

    Velikovsky’s book “Worlds in Collision” was published in April of 1950.

    “He arrived at a body of radical inter-disciplinary ideas, which might be summarised as:[citation needed]

    Planet Earth has suffered natural catastrophes on a global scale, both before and during humankind’s recorded history.
    There is evidence for these catastrophes in the geological record (here Velikovsky was advocating Catastrophist ideas as opposed to the prevailing Uniformitarian notions) and archeological record. The extinction of many species had occurred catastrophically, not by gradual Darwinian means.
    The catastrophes that occurred within the memory of humankind are recorded in the myths, legends and written history of all ancient cultures and civilisations. Velikovsky pointed to alleged concordances in the accounts of many cultures, and proposed that they referred to the same real events. For instance, the memory of a flood is recorded in the Hebrew Bible, in the Greek legend of Deucalion, and in the Manu legend of India. Velikovsky put forward the psychoanalytic idea of “Cultural Amnesia” as a mechanism whereby these literal records came to be regarded as mere myths and legends.
    The causes of these natural catastrophes were close encounters between the Earth and other bodies within the solar system — not least what are now the planets Saturn, Jupiter, Venus, and Mars, these bodies having moved upon different orbits within human memory.
    To explain the fact that these changes to the configuration of the solar system violate several well-understood laws of physics, Velikovsky invented a role for electromagnetic forces in counteracting gravity and orbital mechanics.” Wikipedia.

    Thought you should be aware of this, especially the “cultural amnesia” concept.

    All the best.


  8. The Ice Age ended circa 1500 b.c., Graham knows this, see http://genesisveracityfoundation.com.

    Sorry, I meant “our” not “are”.

  10. Phil Senior says:

    Well, considering that the Mediterranean Basin was largely dry land pre-iceage it is not surprising that the humanity of that era left constructions which are only now coming to light. The Temples of Malta and Gozo could hardly have been unique – any more than the Easter Island statues on the remains of what was a greater land mass than now remains. Perhaps the search for “Atlantis” will become better educated in the realisation that the word may actually refer to a period of human history vastly more ancient than anything at present recognised by the orthodox wisdom, and consisting of not one but many different civilisations. What a feast of knowledge awaits those willing to abandon traditional ideas founded upon meagre facts and ignorant assumptions!
