Introduction by Graham Hancock

I don’t want GRAHAMHANCOCK.COM to be exclusively a Graham Hancock site, but a place where ideas and perspectives on the past can be put forward and discussed by other writers and researchers as well — and indeed by anyone with something interesting to say and the ability to say it. Accordingly I’m offering this section of the site as a forum for the excellent writing and thought-provoking ideas of others.

I offer no set guidelines as to what is or is not “relevant”. If you think that a piece of your own original writing would fit in well in these pages then please submit it to me for consideration. You should feel completely free to express points of view, opinions, ideas and beliefs with which I may profoundly disagree; all that matters is that you should express them well in a manner which may be of interest or of value to others.

Other than articles specially commissioned for the site (where a separate private agreement exists with an author for solicited material) the following provisos apply: (1) by submitting an item for publication on you accept and agree that the item may be published here without further consultation with yourself and may remain on display indefinitely on this site; (2) by submitting an item for publication on you accept and agree that I have the right to edit the item if I feel that this is necessary; (3) by submitting an item for publication on you accept and agree that my decision as to whether or not the item will be published is final; (4) by submitting an item for publication on you accept and agree that no payment whatsoever, or any other form of recompense, will be made to you — whether or not the item is published.

Items that you would like me to consider for publication should be submitted by email to
