An important issue of censorship raised in my Netflix docuseries Ancient Apocalypse was the fact that I and my film crew from ITN Productions were banned from filming at Serpent Mound in Ohio. In episode 6 of the series, in front of the closed gates of Serpent Mound, I read out the email banning us. Our work at the site was therefore limited to what we could achieve with drones and archive footage. Many are amazed that such a restriction on freedom of expression in a series that would reach many millions of viewers could have happened in the United States, and some doubt that it did happen, so I reproduce here the official email from the Public Relations Coordinator of the Ohio History Connection denying us filming permission. Note in the last two lines that the denial had nothing to do with protecting the physical integrity or sacred nature of the site but was made solely on the grounds that my views about the remote past of Serpent Mound do not align with those of mainstream archaeology. For the record, as anyone who reads my 2019 book “America Before: The Key to Earth’s Lost Civilization” will quickly realise, I attribute the creation of Serpent Mound entirely to Native Americans. Where I differ from the archaeologists at the Ohio History Connection is in the evidence I present that the origins of the site may go back to around 12,800 years ago rather than to the much more recent dates favoured by the OHC.

Your work in challenging the concrete perception of the past is groundbreaking and zeitgeist changing in an essential way. Not everything will be correct but what needs to happen is that the gaze of the majority, conformist scientific world, needs to look outside their perceptions and intellectually challenge your theories in investigation and open true discourse. Preventing investigation is so ‘anti-science’ and ‘anti-progress’ it beggars belief. Please keep fighting.
Well said, Simon. The response to Graham’s hit show indeed “beggars belief.”
Thank you Simon. Happy New Year, Graham
Your life’s work is a gift. You have given every human being on the planet a connection to their origin.
Couldn’t have said it better, Rusty.
Thank you Rusty. Happy New Year, Graham
Graham! God bless you. Question my friend. I hope and assuming you’ve read Joseph Campbell. It’s through him almost 30 years ago here a young man growing up on the Northern California Coast I first heard of him. Now 62. That I became ENTHRALLED with all of this. Your what we need. Simple question. It’s through Campbell I learned about Carl Jung and the universal archetype. I’m sure you know. That these symbols, pictures, spiritual stories about the flood found on all continents with cultures that never had any contact with one another?? How’s that possible.? Well, it’s through Campbell that I learned about the famous Carl Jung and the universal archetype. And how all of this “imprint” was given to us humans at birth. These pictures, symbols, stories are part of the human DNA. That’s why peoples who are continent’s away have these same references. Not to be taken literal but part of the HUMAN make up. The mistake and trust me you are no mistake is to take these “things” as real. I hope you understand. Of course you do. Anyway do you give any credence to this . That’s why you find these pictures, symbols, everywhere! It’s part of the human makeup. I totally support you in all your endeavors.
Hi Stephen, thank you for the thought. I’m not very impressed with Jungian archetypes. They look more to me like a problem that needs explaining than like an explanation to a problem. Passing on stories and traditions from person to person and from culture to culture — well, that happens all the time. Happy New Year, Graham
It’s interesting that you see jungs archetypes as problematic, Graham. I’m perplexed by this because I feel what Jung was trying to do goes hand in hand with your uncovering. When Jung was finding cross cultural bridges in symbolism he begins to show the interconnecetedness of the human psyche. And what I see you doing is quite similar, saying that people were perhaps more advanced than we give them credit for, many years ago. Youre different only In the sense that you’re saying we don’t know these “people” existed and expect them to be perhaps meta-humans (?). Whereas Jung only suggests that through dreams and the collective unconscious we are eternally linked to our prehistoric roots and ancestory. (This is assuming we pay attention or give merit to the swarm of data in our subconscious and unconscious minds).
My question is do you have any ideas or paradigms u share with CGJUNG? Or is it an egoic disdain which great minds have for one another?
You’re missing the entire point of these discoveries. Forget all the words and stories you’ve been told and point people toward these inexplicable ancient megaliths, the Earth’s geology and DNA evidence (physical evidence!) that speak for themselves and tells you more than any words could.
I think both positions are true in a sense, they evolved together. For me jungian archetypes and the theorie of a (or even many) lost civilizations are not mutual exclusive. On the contrary, they fit so well together beyond pure coincidence.
Archetype means a pre-existent reality. A structure of clusters of meaning that inform and enable manifestation in matter and energy (as in the Periodic table, and in the Standard model of the energy layers of the proton), and in culture (as in recurrent features that do not depend on diffusion, although diffusion is taken as its mechanism). Jung initially thought invention, diffusion, and experience in the broad sense, had shaped archetype, but later he adopted Plato’s philosophical explanation. Jung wrote that he had to explain again and again that archetype is never invented, developed, evolved, influenced, or changed. Every culture and civilisation (the high population density version of culture) rationalises the supposed ‘origin’ of the core content in cultural media (myth, art, calendar, emblems, etc). The age-old rationalisation was a super civ, eg Phoenicians. The recent rationalisation was ‘alien assistance or legacy’, which Jung commented on in a paper on UFOs, explaining them as tech gestalt rationalisations of archetypal features. The current rationalisation is a super old, nearly untraceable, super tech civ. The reality is that we are that civ, but our conscious minds cannot digest the fact that all our ideas are pre-existent archetypes. We insist that our ancestors ‘invented’ things, even language. But even tech is just a maturity curve, predictable applications that unfold when the level of population requires and enables them thanks to specialisation (no electronics without electricity; steam; metals; mining; wheel; etc. All our ancestors were capable of tech (as they were of language, art, emblems, calendar, myth), but they did not use all of it. The basic problem behind this thread is the lack of a coherent theoretical framework in anthropology, psychology, art history, and all the human sciences. This problem was noted as early as the 1950s, and is still with us. Bad theory. Shut up and dig and date. Which leaves lots of room for authors to verbalise common or garden gestalt assumptions based on correspondence ‘theories’, which are not theories at all. All science should be grounded in philosophy. Plato had it. Frazer hesitated to use it, but described recurrent features in great detail. Freud used it by formulating the defence mechanisms that are now household knowledge. Jung understood it, but did not find the ‘Periodic’ table of types and features (he came close in his theses on some). Levi-Strauss developed the underlying structure by way of formula (Canonical formula) in mythic episodes, but did not find the layers of the structure. I was fortunate to find the optional features (surprisingly few, only 16 clusters of about six options each); their average frequencies (surprisingly rigorous, even in samples as small as 50 artworks); their spatial layer (rigorous); and the small Epoch or Age layer marked among the central features. The structuralist anthropology model of subconscious re-expression of archetypal structure, is too complex, and too anti-common ‘sense’, for most people. Hancock verbalises this repulsion (the same that caused academia to reject Jung and depth psychology in favour of pills). Most pop anthro authors are politicians, practicing culture, not studying culture. The answer to the ‘origin’ (actually perpetual re-origination) of cultural features and themes (golden ages, catastrophes, resurges), is not in pop anthro, nor in academic anthro. Let the user of the internet and the library beware. Anthropology has failed to answer the big questions or Who and What we are (as formulated by Schroedinger). While the natural sciences is much further advanced, and already accept some counter-intuitive notions, and accept that they do hot have their full theoretical framework yet, even while they use matter and energy (shut up and calculate). They have found the ultimate answer in their field; what and how large is the universe. The answer is in Eddington’s realisation that all the cosmic constants in physics laws, reveal a pattern, that point back to the limits of our cognition.
That Ohio History ‘team’ deserve every ounce of ridicule for trying to block pop doccies and pop theories. While peddling their untheorised version.
I have read most of Joseph Campbell’s works too. He did not only postulate Jungian archetypes. Based on the evidence Campbell had at the time he postulated that it was either through transmission or an aspect of universal human subconscious (here insert Jungian archetypes). Most of Campbell’s works (if not all) were completed before Hancock’s Fingerprints of the Gods was written. Also, Campbell’s focus was on human archetypes and their relation to mythology, not archeology. Hancock’s work follows the likely path of actual transmission of facts through the ages through myths. I don’t think Joseph Campbell would have any problem with Graham Hancock’s work or thesis at all.
The real racists are the authorities. They censor investigation into the true past of indigenous cultures. And then they create racist laws like the “Feather Alert” in California. It’s pretty obvious to me Graham Hancock is the hero in this story.
Thank you Bert. Happy New Year, Graham
I must agree. I like how Sir Graham question the layers of layers. Thanks for the intellectual concept of yours Sir!
Why are people so afraid of new discoveries? Or should I say, the most plausible theory that isn’t just ended from one corner?
So I live in Ohio myself. (South of Columbus). I’ve found a few artifacts in the Scioto river bed after just a few hours of just rock collecting with my children one day. Today, we were at the Hopewell mounds, just checking them out and looking. On our way in, I noticed there was a “hill,” that looked like an outline of a pyramid. (We were still miles away at this point). Well it turns out that that hill lines up directly with the tallest and most defined mound within that group if you look from the corner of the area. A google maps search later, and this hill does look from the air to have 4 very distinct sides to it. And of course….they turned the hill/area into the Great Seal State Park. This group is about 1 hour away from the Serpent mound.
Very interesting. Thank you Nathan. Happy New Year, Graham
Kind of ironic that one of the colonial nations most responsible for the destruction of my peoples history (as well as everything else) now claims to use that as an excuse to deny investigation of the site. But this is typical behaviour of taker cultures.
Very good point Duane. Thank you for reaching out. Happy New Year, Graham
Agree. Hypocritical or deeply ironic or actually it’s just a continuation of colonialism (deeply patronising behaviour) – not allowing the people (tribal owners) to speak/act/react for themselves. First Nations people in Australia (& anyone who supported them) had such a hard time getting the view point accepted that their people/culture was much older than 10,000 years – dangerous stuff apparently. 😠
“As you know, most academic theories in vogue amongst certain cliques about ancient American sites have been blown sky-high by serious scientific enquiry devested (as science should be) of any distorting 21st century sociopolitical and leftist Liberal interpretations shoehorned into them, usually by non-Native white academics of a certain type, who state pet assertions as though they are facts without a shred of evidence.
As the currently installed puppets of the invading European culture that has, after centuries of racial and cultural genocide of Native Americans and their traditions, which in the late 20th century chose to allow a few of the descendants of the ones they failed to exterminate to act as though they are traditionally authorised to behave as custodians when really we are simply a politically correct native flavoured veneer representing this site, in effect as agents of the current non-Native American system dominating the land in question, and we have been installed to prevent genuine, more detailed, nuanced and much more culturally deeper discoveries which would likely affect our career pathways and socio-political status within our clique, as well as preventing the genuine traditions which were most probably lost during the genocide process, from ever being recovered.
Due to this fragility and inability to withstand even casual inspection or questioning (as science ought to) by a journalist proposing thoroughly researched alternative possible interpretations which expose our press releases, our laziness and the “way the world really works”, your entirely reasonable request, which would have been of great general interest, is declined.”
An excellent satire, Ben. Gets right to the heart of the matter. Happy New Year, Graham
Graham Hancock’s experience with the Serpent Mound site, where those with position & power seek to control the narrative and deny access, reminds me of a 1970’s visit by the novelist John Fowles, when writing his fascinating book: ‘The Enigma of Stonehenge’, where he too met an obdurate ‘caretaker’ who refused JF permission to enter the inner sanctum of Stonehenge. JF left Stonehenge and travelled to the access free Avebury circles “simply to get the taste of contemporary Stonehenge out of my mouth”.
Stonehenge has known many ‘truths’ (from woefully inaccurate dating; Mycenaean builders; astronomer-priests – the list is endless), but within a year of JF’s visit to Stonehenge he began the editing of John Aubrey’s unpublished manuscript ‘Monumenta Britannica’and, as I have the privilege of now owning JF’s personal copy, I believe it is worth remarking upon a minor, but, I believe, significant alteration in JF’s Foreword where he writes: “on the unusual feel of someone who works on the ground quite as much as from documents in a study or library”, where JF has crossed through the word ‘documents’ so as to emphasise, at least for himself, the feel of being there, present on the ground, where we can stay open to fresh perceptions.
Barriers do not make for integrity.
Thank you Steven and agreed — barriers indeed do not make for integrity. Happy New Year, Graham
If the Catholic Church resists having a relic dated, there are sneers and cries for transparency and truth. If a corporate body purporting to represent indigenous people behaves the same way, they act as though it is somehow different, and they are somehow magically exempt from being accountable to the public. Science that cannot be questioned is propaganda. Thank you Ms Robles for clearly signalling, by embodying, the problem. There is only one way such problems end up: solved. And we’re a patient bunch. Looking forward to Graham’s eventual return to Serpent Mound with less propaganda and censorship in the way, once grown-ups are in charge of it.
I have long been a fan of Graham Handcock, seeker of wisdom and truth. He joins a long line of like thinkers. Truth will prevail.
Using high production values, state of the art photography and brisk editing to convey a wide array of complex ideas in a popular form to the widest possible audience, Graham has beaten the archaeologists and his fellow journalists at their own game. That may be why some of these professionals are behaving with so little professional decorum.
The negative reaction rarely rose above logical fallacy, consisting mostly of straw-man piled atop ad-hominem, while signally failing to attempt any serious critique of evidence or arguments. Perhaps they just don’t like it up em…
Best of all, the people voted with their feet, making the show immensely popular and rightfully so.
“Graham Hancock was right!”
Future Headlines come with awards and numerous recognitions. Digital and physical statues in his honor to memorialize the brave journalist. Theories proven accepted and history of origins becomes more complete.
Cheers to the Scribe of the millennia. Find comfort in this future that will be and forgive the vicious attackers. Everyone will know and then you will get smaller as revelation of origins come closer. Many in the present and many more in the future Thank you for being a marker of our human history.
Dear Graham! Thank you so much for this astonishing and mind blowing piece of work! This is just what this world needs.
Just finished watching the last episode and I have something to say about the serpentine thread in this story. I understand that you view the serpent as an image of the comet, I however disagree. There must be a different explanation to the widespread use of the symbol, as it was worshiped and the Gods were made portrayed as snake-related.
Given the fact that the ancients looked up in the sky, I believe the snakes are the portrayal of the polar lights. And I am firm in this point of view from the following facts:
1 – widespread glacials made it possible to see the lights closer to the equator;
2 – 42 thousand years ago the poles flipped and the magnetic fields must have gone wild, making the it possible to see the lights anywhere;
3 – the portrayal of the scales and the stepping over the serpent on the archaeological sites give an image of a moving, flowing scene, that the ancients had to look through to see the starry skies;
4 – it was again 11400 years ago that the sun was extremely active, giving rise to the frequency of the lights appearance;
5 – it is now a newly discovered technique to use the change in magnetic fields in order to predict the cataclysms, like earthquakes in San Andreas, what if the Gods new how to use it and were preparing for disasters, warning us to look out for these events?
6 – the myths of the northern minorities contain a lot of serpentinee symbolism, that associates with the fire/light, this may be the work of Russian ethnography Simchenko, who published in 1976 the myths that he dated back to 12000 years ago – Culture of the deer hunters of Northern Eurasia, or in the form pf foxes and wolfs as in Brekke A., Egeland A. The Northern Light. Springer- Verlag. This also brings the idea that the Serpent mount with its tail represents the polar lights that appear in a circle, and there is also a direction given to seek for them – through the lights to the north. The extensions near the head of the serpent on the mount may be the representation of the aural oval, that fixes the real magnetic pole?
7 – the northern lights in myths were viewed as the boundary between the world of living and the world of the dead, which leads to the understanding why the serpent was made in close proximity to the ice cliffs, where the was no life, which means death, and the direction is taken through beheading the serpent. This is so intriguing!
8 – If we take the myths to be partly true, then we must respect that they represent not necessarily a single event, but be used to fit in the timescale to preserve the history. If so, then the appearance of the serpents may date as far back as to the latest pole swapping, around 42 thousand years ago, and we know that people were already around, thanks to the hipbone found in Omsk. The pole swapping must have led to a series of the cataclysms, that people were managing to survive, but were none the less tired of. Until the goddess – the comet – came to battle the serpents, and the battle was seen as the burning of asteroids, until pieces started to fall on Earth. Needless to say that after the flood and the warming of the planet the Serpens, the northern lights, were gone, the glacials melted, the magnetic fields stabilised and the Sun’s activity went down.
Following the cave cities, it may be of interest the folklore stories of the Irish about Sidhe and even more folklore on Chud Beloglazaya (may be translated as a white-eyed miralce, miraculous people, different people) in Komi, Nenec, Finn and Saam communities, that tell about the whole so called pre ancestral tribe that went underground. It would be fabulous if more of the eurasian culture could be examined for more threads to our true prehistory&
It is of great interest to me what you are doing, I wish you all the best and more, much more, fantastic findings and the breakage of the censorship down and for all! Take care
A great interpretation. While I feel the comet taking the shape of a snake is a bit more understandable, I CERTAINLY agree that Eurasian cultures and history should be more looked into. There was alot of war and changing ownership of lands so it doesn’t seem like anything would be too ‘undisturbed’ especially in Europe. But Russia, for example, is HUGE man! there’s got to be some cheeky caves we haven’t looked into. The Russians certainly do not know every square inch of their land
At age 61 I only recently came upon your work, Graham, via your Netflix series Ancient Apocalypse. Mainstream archeaology bored me but now I am excited, for the first time in years, to embark on this learning curve and to understand more about our distant past on this planet. Thank you.
Their aim is to prevent anyone to expose the truth. Infact they purposefully dated everything to lower because they don’t any civilization to be older than the European and claim that western civilization is the first authentic civilization. Until these white supremacists stay in power human history will stay buried.
Thank you for your work!
If not already please start studying ‘From the Akasha Records’ (r. Steiner).
Best of luck!
Graham please contact Joe Rogan for a podcast on Thomas Lishman. This needs to be heard.
Paths cross… for a reason. I’ve found so much in your work that resonates so entirely with my beliefs and feelings. Feelings… isn’t quite the word for it, instincts maybe or a natural impulse to type in this weird little box
I have followed you for many years. I’m now 74 and Graham you have been the most honest and inspiring person I know. I thank you with all my heart and plan to meet you in person one day. With all my love many thanks Ana
Hi Ana, very grateful to you for reaching out and for your kind words and thoughts. Much appreciated. Congrats on being 74. I’m getting there at 72. Happy New Year, Graham
Hi Graham, been following you ever since you took me on a journey to find the Ark, (apparently now stolen), then blew my mind with fingerprints. What a journey and your no nearer official recognition, yet a person of mega courage. So officialdom doesnt like you. So what. You must have lived one of the most interesting lives on the planet, and influenced an ever growing number of young people, in an amazing age, that are coming to realize the truth of and behind mankinds purposely hidden history. For me the question begging, is why?
and who really is pulling these strings going back into history. Is it really myopia?, protection of personal lifetime investment in a flawed paradigm or does it go deeper , back to the most recent beginning 12000+ yrs ago?. I would love to see the answer before my passing. Keep digging old buddy. My friend though we’ve never shaken hands. You give me hope that there’s an alternative view and someone has the courage to express it. (I still have my Fingerprints book you signed for me back in Cardiff all those yrs ago). Regards
Hi Paul, thank you for your kind words about my work. And, yes, I feel blessed and am forever grateful for the life I’ve been given the opportunity to lead. So glad to hear you’ve kept that copy of Fingerprints! Happy New Year, Graham
As a writer of history based on archeology and as a geologist of formation, I have got the chance of traveling around the world and see many things. After seing your film on Netflix, I shared your theory…. which is also supported by my writings and could be of somme help and support to you. Some years ago, I wrote a book which might be of interest to you: Across the Pacific – From ancien Asia to Precolombian America (Universal Publihers). More recently, I published another book (but in french) which might also be of interest to you : Le chamanisme – de l’animisme aux religions- l’exemple particulier du chamanisme amérindien. If you are interested, I would be delighted to discuss any point with you
Thanks Lemoy. Your book Asia/Pacific/Americas looks interesting. I’ve just bought it. Happy New Year, Graham
The one thing Ms. Rowbles left out were her pronouns. Mr Hancock, I watched your recent interview and discussion on Joe Rogan’s podcast, I was blown away… hope you and Randall continue to plow forward and open all the doors. Well done.
Thanks for reaching out, TB. Happy New Year, Graham
Leaving in the email addresses and contact details seems a bit mean spirited. I note the ITN email is redacted. Yes pull them for their archaic behaviour but still treat them how would want to be treated. You’ve just opened them up for all the cranks and idiots. Savannah Robles may be the nicest person you may ever want to meet. Redact the other contact info Graham. Its beneath you.
Tommy C you state QUOTE “Leaving in the email addresses and contact details seems a bit mean spirited. I note the ITN email is redacted.”END QUOTE Thank you for your comment, Tommy, but the answer should be obvious to anyone who is not deliberately pretending to misunderstand my intent. The email address that was NOT redacted is the email address of the Public Relations Coordinator for the Ohio History Connection, this is a matter of public interest and a public relations matter for the OHC, and OHC’s Public Relations Coordinator is the correct point of contact re public relations matters for the OHC. Get it now? Oh… and, by the way, I have seen your same message, with essentially the same words (including the “beneath you” bit and the “cranks and idiots” bit) multiple times — as though those who post this comment are copying from a sheet of prompts that they have been sent. Have a good New Year anyway.
First time I think I have ever written a reply to an email like this. If I have it was in the deep past and long forgotten about. I’ve added the occasional post to the forums but usually just read the news and stories. The quotes are entirely mine and not copied and pasted from anywhere or prompted by anyone else. I’ll stand by what I say if that’s ok with you. The point was made quite eloquently in the program about the lack of access and I feel that was more than enough. Thats just my opinion.
A Happy New Year to you also.
I’m afraid I agree re naming a specific person especially a woman, as it’s scary how woman can be targeted these days in the age of no privacy (go after the org but not the individuals even if they appear to have acted wrongly).
Thank you Linda
I think you have made my point more eloquently.
Why “especially a woman”? Are women somehow exempt from accountability for their actions, especially public actions done in their professional life as Public Relations Officer for an academic society, actions taken to actively damage and thwart the public interest?
What privacy does Graham or his family (which includes women) get? An avalanche of media smear campaign co-ordinated by bitches like this Savannah bint who wrote this email- targeting Graham! BULLYING him in fact. He is elderly and epileptic and a grandfather. I’d be taking bullets for him any day.
Sorry, do the talking, you do the walking, gender is irrelevant. Robles is a disgrace and should apologise and resign. Or be sacked. Not that she has a sack, but still. You know what I mean.
Graham I wanted to share something with you regarding the queen mary apocalypse and a bunch of apocalypse paintings that all have a mushroom that I discovered in the paintings and drawings going back 2000 years. over 450 with end-of-the-world painting also with a mushroom. I cannot find a portal to show you them please help so you can see it because they all point to one mushroom I found in 2012 called Golden Halo it matches the paintings . thank you for your work it would be an honor to share this with you. Steve W Ps your going to love this one Mr Hancock.
your friend Joe Rogan did a special on halos and mushrooms in art, he used the one I found in the wild in the pictures he put up on the screen. There is a painting in Turin Italy that is called last judgment end of the world it depicts a christ figure sitting in what I have found. the queen mary apocalypse also has the same thing in many of the paintings. I was working with someone from the ancient aliens show but something happened that made me back out . I can prove all of it. if you are seeking a key to the apocalypse stuff your going to be floored when you see the key that matches all the paintings its the only thing that shows in all the paintings and it’s a Mushroom. a golden one. matches ark paintings as well I have scanned over 250,000 paintings. It’s the only thing that is in all of them there is a clear pattern. the world needs to see this and I am just a mycologist and art lover I cannot do what you do Mr Hancock your the expert revelator and we all know it .
I really appreciate your work and what you do, i acually want to be a pseudoscience and have a huge pashon for it, i just dont know how to start im 15 really smart for my age and would do anything to do this kind of stuff for a living plesse get back to me.- Isaac pleger.
What a breathe of fresh air. I’ve just finished watching your show and wow.
I would have liked additional episodes as I found your theories interesting, fascinating and well-argued.
It elevates the debate, makes me want to dig more into all what I learnt thanks to you and forge my own opinion.
Do you know if there are some sites in France supporting your statements?
Best Wishes for 2023
Mr Hancock If you could contact me please i’d appreciate it very much. I have an overwhelming amount of evidence for very difficult subjects. Multiple events, photos & footage. unbelievable stuff but so very true. Please reply via my email or my telegram- @GBKing93
Dear Graham, after watching the series, and having read the books knowing what the conclusion was going to be, it still sends shivers down the spine. What was most most effective was all the excellent drone footage and computer renders, that really brought it home and placed it in the real world instead of just on a page. As always great to learn new things, and ever since reading the Sign and the seal (ethopia was just band aid to me before), the established narrative has been something to question. Hopefully in time your work will be recognised as others have and apologies issued by the mainstream academia. The article in the Guardian about the series being the most dangerous show on television, appeared to be written by someone who turned it off after 5 mins and has a totally closed mind, shocking piece of reporting and full of their own ego. Its hard work teaching my 7 year old son to question things, take a balanced view, and dont accept everything you are told, this series has helped! Be great to have a series 2 with a more detailed look at some of the many many other sites you have been to. Be nice to meet you one day, but time is precious and none of us are getting any younger! Great job getting it on TV at last. Best for 2023, Graham B
Hello Graham !
Just last June, I gave your book “America Before” to my
brother as they were leaving to drive thru Ohio— suggested they stop at Serpent Mound. It was his birthday, no one was around, a lawn mower could be heard in the distance. They sat. Then decided to lay awhile by the serpent head. My brother said it was a powerful experience. Heavy and emotional. They were fresh to the historical importance of the mound.
I’ve watched/ listened to many hours of you and Randall Carlson podcasts . . Including, on Audible, 4 of your books Clearly, I Love your work. What you are reporting and revealing to us . . . is . . . fabulously engaging and sensible to me. I dig deeper to learn more.
When I saw Dr Jordan Peterson on book tour last March
I gave him a card with suggested a conversations:
One was you and Randall would be awesome, say on the topic of myths – and everything else I see your brains have in areas of common interest.
Last month , I asked exceptional podcaster, Curt Jaimungal ( Theories of Everything) if he could schedule a podcast with you too ( on his community page)
Apparently, he was having the same idea (!) and asked how to reach you. This was before” Netflix A A “ a new way to tell time, huh.? Okay so how to make that happen?
Graham – Minor importance yet thought you’d like to know— am in your “80 year old “ cohort. 🙂
Cheers to 2023 and you, Nancy Pulley
Graham, 2023 will be remembered as the year the truth came out. We are having T-shirts made in Florida that say “Support Graham Hancock” ” the dirt doesn’t lie!” You have a large group of watchmakers, aerospace and defense builders that support you and your truth fine sir. If you can think of a method where this small army can be focused into being more effective in spreading your truth and furthering your cause please reach out to me. I am not “the” leader by any means but could be if necessary. I want to help. You are not just changing perceptions Graham…. you are changing lives. You WILL be remembered and I am thrilled this is coming to light in my lifetime. WE ARE WITH YOU!
It is honestly history changing stuff. I would love to help any community in any way i can. All you have to do is support what youre passionate in
Thank you Graham Hancock for your courageous, tenacious, and groundbreaking research. I have been following your work since “The Sign and the Seal.” I have read most of your books. This post on the Serpent Mound is topical for us in my family as we are currently rereading your America Before.
The Thought Police think if they scream loud enough they will make the public believe them. However, the Truth is out there and history will prove these silly folks to be self-serving fools.
Thank you for paving the way to that future time. There are millions out there following your research.
Graham your incredible work is an absolute inspiration. It reminds me of Charles Darwin’s courage and determination against the church, but this time it’s the institute of archaeology. I can only hope this gains traction. You could well rewrite history.
All these pyramids where built for sacrificial mounds. They where made to build them by Lucifer the fallen angel. To mock god and turn all the people away from god. Lucifer knows he cannot beat god or Jesus, but if he can disrupt our thinking to turn from god. Another common bond to all these places is a depiction of a dragon or snake creature. And portal drawings. Lucifer is known as a dragon and a serpent. The giants that are referenced in all these. Are known as nephelim the half human half fallen angel creatures that had six fingers and six toes. And ate humans. Just like when Rome was built. They worshiped a so called god called Janus. Janus was Lucifer. Look it all up you will see the truth. And the ruler that was king during the time of Jesus’s crucifixtion was the son of Janus or Lucifer who died by the Tiber river who was then brought back to life as Tiberius ceaser and was also known as Claudius. Now do you see
Did Netflix ban you from saying anything about the possibility of giant physical humans existing? I was really surprised to hear you say “I don’t believe in giants”. Phil Druhiznin, among others on YouTube has presented much evidence to the contrary.
Happy new year Graham, I was saddened to hear of your London Talk on the 26th so late as i would love to hear you talk in person. You bring the question marks and the evidence to prove these question marks. Not evidence of the solution but strong evidence that there IS MUCH that we still do not know. Finding your website today has definitely gotten me excited after refollowing your works for about 2 years. Will be watching all the talks, reading all the books and researching it all myself. All I ask is for MORE. More from you and your extensive past studying into everything. How I can consume more of your talks and seminars. Names of other researchers/archaeologists that are doing work that you fully support and think could lead to these important breakthroughs we need for ULTIMATE proof lol. All of human history fascinates me and especially the tying together of myths and stories from cultures present and past alike. You have done a magnificent job Mr. Hancock, long may it continue. Lets change history!!!
Thank you for your work. Would love to know your thoughts about the theories of Peratt and Vogt.
It may be that when we see the auroral plasma snake encircle the world (the Ouroboros), we can expect plasma to change properties as it enters our atmosphere and bombard the surface as solids, which accompany a cyclical weather-based, geothermal cataclysm and the creation of a new world on the surface of Earth. Snake iconography appears globally in creation myths.
Douglas Vogt: Based on current science and biblical myth, a polar reversal occurs every 12,068 years, with the next cataclysm taking place in 2046. Vogt recommends living at high elevations, facing east, close to the equator (within 15 degrees but not directly on the equator) and away from volcanos in order to survive this cataclysm.
“The Ouroboros as an auroral Phenomenon: Following an exhaustive survey, historical linguist Marinus van der Sluijs and plasma physicist Anthony Peratt suggested that the ouroboros has a specific origin in time, in the 5th or 4th millennium BCE, and was ultimately based on globally independent observations of an intense aurora, with somewhat different characteristics than the familiar aurora. Specifically, the ouroboros could have represented an auroral oval seen as a whole, at a time when it was smaller and located closer to the equator than now. That could have been the case during geomagnetic excursions, when the geomagnetic field weakens and the earth’s magnetic poles shift places. Tok Thompson and Gregory Allen Schrempp cautiously allow that this new idea might ‘mark a bold new interdisciplinary venture made possible by modern science’.” This quote is from Ouroboros – Wikipedia
Thank you Graham for calling out those bozos in Ohio (my home state). I attended a Christian church camp near Serpent Mound for many years (age 6 – 17) and this strain of so-called Christianity taught me, and still teaches kids our planet is only 6k years old among other misconceptions. Luckily, something affected me in those woods and at the mound, and the surrounding area that helped me intuit the absurdity of this dogma.
The serpent mound is simple to understand.The spirals show the earth was moving out of its orbit.
When it started to come back due to intervention by advanced race of people.It ended 400000 miles from its original orbit.
The earth wobbles through space like the path of a snake.
The snakes mouth is holding an elliptical oject.thst is the orbit of the earth around the sun.
As a graduate in the discipline of Anthropology (ANU, Australia) it amazes me how archaeologists (as a sub discipline) seem to have become so stuck, blinkered and narrow minded in their field. Part of the anthropological “toolkit” I was taught was “information or evidence” should be gleaned from varied sources and it was deeply impressed upon us to be very careful of (& transparent about) cultural bias, gender bias, historical bias, & especially ethnocentrism etc. I was also taught “Stories/myths/legends/art etc” are deeply respected as they can give us much understanding of a culture or group of people. I didn’t realise that archaeology did not come on this journey of ‘new anthropology’ (relevant to the modern world) with us! That they got stuck in 1920s “glory days” (or earlier). One wants to ask what is the purpose of archeology or any academic pursuit if critical thinking, questioning current theories & adding new knowledge is so throughly discouraged. It saddens me because if archaeology was more in tune with the type of anthropology I learned they would be such a powerful tool in our understanding of humankind! Complacency is a dangerous thing!
I enjoyed your AA series and broadly agree. My question is what would we do and where would we go if we know a similar shower is coming? Does that indicate where our benefactors may have gone? I doubt the lost civilization you talk of just disappeared, but rather relocated and helped the simple folk. Also how does the volume of global water required to add the rise in SL compare to today’s ice sheets and what’s believed to be 11000yrs back? How big is the discrepant bubble?
Wow just watched ancient apocalypse, and the same systematic no access pass to serpent mound is what u usually find at most sites, it’s sad you might as well destroy/forget these sites if there no access to anyone that would want to see study view. Like a land grab “i Own this land” & “f u pay me” mentality is why we need, not want access! Or we are doomed to make the same mistake! Sometimes I look at the world and think at this point, we deserve whatever is coming! Then we’ll see who owns what and who needs what. You cannot eat good silver or cash! And too many people have been way too comfortable for far too long! Never have been in survival mode with no food to eat! We need to do so much better as a whole, or expect and accept what is coming! Sorry I sound like a mad man but c’mon people wtf!!! Do better!!
I’m a forester that uses lidar terrain maps in my daily work. As I viewed the program, I looked up the lidar terrain map of Serpent Mound. What is the oval just east of the mound? It is slightly smaller than the one in the snake’s mouth. My daughter noticed that the hill on which the mound is located is shaped like a coyote with the other oval at the eye. Download a georeferenced pdf of the lidar map here: https://caltopo.com/p/V47JE
I outlined the coyote shape with a red trail line.
The irony behind this reply from Ms. Robles is that she is personally unaffiliated with the Ohio History Connection and according to her LinkedIn page, resides in Florida and works as a Public Relations consultant for a variety of organizations. I understand this to mean that her entire business is related to controlling public perception, regardless of reality. What a monumentally unqualified individual to be representing and controlling access to a historic landmark of such importance. Personally, as a descendant of Native Americans myself, I am ashamed that such monuments are being curated by such foolish and self-important people.

Hello Graham you mighty cobweb blower.id like to thank you for the excellent series on Netflix.i must have watched it over and over at least 5 times.
The way you deliver your theories is spellbinding. I am new to your work,but I will now start reading your books.you remind me of a more energetic and driven von daniken. Its a disgrace that you have been ridiculed just for trying to find stuff out.you are a breath of fresh air in a stale room.
I’ve been a serious appreciating and been motivated by your work. So I’m a fan Graham, even crossed paths, read (listened and seen) most of your stuff, since 2009 been tracking your world, you got :the way” about you ….
Holy moly!!!! Book 3 of your novel … a little over the top, obsessed with fighting and un-ending gory stuff … or was that the point.
Stay the Course.
Always the Best to Santha and the family,
Keep on Truckin’
As I was watching Ancient Apocalypse, I noted that Graham Hancock said he didn’t know what the projections coming out of the top of the snake’s head on Serpent Mound were. But it looks to me to be a Sidewinder, an indigenous American snake with horn-like bumps on its head. The sinewous curves the snake is making is very much in keeping with a Sidewinder snake. Mesoamerican peoples would have had respect for this snake because it is poisonous.
