I’m at home in the UK completing the writing my next book, ‘America Before’. Over past few days, digging into the mystery of the incredible Newark and High Bank earthworks in Ohio, I broke my own writing rules. On two days my output didn’t exceed 500 words a day. On the third day, though, I managed closer to 3,000 words so hopefully I’m keeping up a good pace!

    Mr. Hancock,

    My name is D. K. M. Junior. I just wanted to drop a quick message to you. I cannot begin to express my gratitude for all your tireless your works, words, and wisdom. Your voice is a beacon of light in a haze of darkness and a breath of fresh air in the thick smog of modernity. I, akin to many of your fans, eagerly await your new book. I have a question for you, nonetheless; have you considered transferring your work into television or movies? Transferring in the sense that you may have to conceal the overt nature and message of your work within a traditional story that Hollywood would support. In other words, I believe you may be able to reach the masses using a different medium of entertainment – even if you must hide the major ideas within a narrative that can be easily digested by casual viewers. Regardless, the awakening is real. I am a writer myself (B.S., MOL, MFA in Creative Writing) and I hope to follow in your footsteps someday, after your example and will to fight and spread truth and genuine knowledge. I recently composed the pilot episode of a story that includes the work of yourself and others – a screenplay that I hope will aid in the efforts of many to change the paradigm of our society. If ideas like yours and others can begin to make it to the big (Movies) or small screens (Netflix, Amazon Studios, etc), then I believe the movement will make more progress among the citizens of the world in a few years than it has in a century.

    Thank you again for your lifelong dedication, sir.

    Keep it up Graham! I am sure this book, like all of your previous books, will keep us all glued to the pages.

  3. Ronald Beaumont says:

    Good advice!–as I probe aardvark-like into a mass of material that I hope will eventually become a study of the link between Bigfoot/Sasquatch events and geomagnetic faults.

  4. Pierre Adler says:

    Thanks for the update!
    Looking forward to reading that new tome.

    Right now, I am reading your and Bauval’s “The Message of the Sphinx”. The story of Gantenbrink or, more precisely, of the way in which he was treated by the Egyptian authorities is really pathetic. I wonder what became of him and the whole Queen’s chamber’s southern shaft door matter. And after that, we have Egyptologists declaring their love of “physical evidence”, “real archaeological evidence” and “empirical evidence”! I suppose that what counts as empirical evidence is not the same everywhere.

  5. W J Richards says:

    YES! I found it difficult to break from Magicians of the Gods 14 hour audio! FASCINATING, ENLIGHTENING AND THOUGHT PROVOKING! THANK YOU! And God, for your wonderful talent.

  6. Mac McGill says:

    Very excited to learn about the new book. I’m not sure if you have heard of the following, but I am came across an interesting (if admittedly not fantastic) book called The Ancient Giants who ruled America by Richard J Dewhurst. Very little of it is written by the author, it is mostly a clipping collection of news stories from the past about the repeated finding of the remain of extremely tall people from an undescribed civilization in North America. Possibly the one wiped out by the Younger Dryas flood? I can not attest to the credibility or accuracy of these reports in this books. Interestingly I found it right around the same time I had checked Magicians of the Gods out of the library. Possibly you know about this, and I can not attest to the accuracy of this book, you would be able to tell better than I.

    I have read all of your non-fiction, and they have deeply influenced my worldview. I wish you all the success in the world, and applaud your courage.

  7. Monica Sevilla says:

    Dear Graham,

    Thank you for breaking the writing process down into simpler steps. As some one who also suffers from migraines, I have written short works such as articles and short books. You are right about getting over the insecurities and just pushing forward. I have read and enjoyed your books. Your research and writing about scientific topics (such as the ice age comet and its aftermath, the geology of the Earth in the past) has inspired and motivated me to dig into the existing research and go further into some of these subjects.

    Your research has opened the door for many of us to follow your lead. Thank you for showing us how to write with fortitude, passion and commitment.

  8. Robert G Yaple says:

    I’m excited for your new book. I’m a 40 year old father and iron worker and I just booked my ticket to Egypt for two weeks. Im wholly interested in seeing the buildings for what they might teach me and that I can pass on and you seem like some one whose “coat I should pull.” Thank you for your time and I hope you are happy and healthy.

    1. Robert G Yaple says:

      Any advice you may have, I would be very thankful for.

  9. Brandon Vitale says:

    Cant wait to read it Graham! Thank you for always inspiring and letting the world know that we really are a species with amnesia.. Sending love & well wishes to both you and Santha!

  10. Eurico says:

    Hi, Graham.

    It is a great pleasure to be here.
    Congratulations on the strength and energy you carry.
    God bless you more and more.
    All the information and knowledge that you acquire and passes to us must surely undergo thorough an meticulous filtering.
    Sorry for the translation. I am in the direct translator of Google, I am Portuguese emigrante in Brazil for 18 years.
    So, I wanted to ask you why you still keep hidden all the discoveries in the field of the Electric Universe and in the field of rereading the archetypes?
    Do not you think that this new knowledge, publicized by Thunderbolts Project on YouTube, falls like a glove and marries the field of knowledge that you now explore?
    Thank you very much.
    Fraternal hug.

  11. Joseph Garcia says:

    Graham. I think you’re great. I love your theories on lost civilizations and constantly defend you to people online. If you’re ever in Montana look me up!

  12. Drilon Veliu says:

    Dear Mr. Graham Hancock,
    My name is Drilon Veliu and I am an Albanian-American living in New Jersey. I am a twenty-four year old student, son, brother, friend, lover, and learner. I am apart of an ancient Illiryan ancestory, and am grateful by the connection I have found in the beautiful writings and works you have procured for the illustration and education on humanity of our past. May God/Zeus/Gaia/etc. bless you with health, happiness, and fortune.
    A fellow Learner,

    I personally never do things like this but you have had such a profound impact on my life and only at the age of 23, all my life i have been obsessed with finding the truth because of you i feel i am on the right track. Short and Sweet but thank you for your life’s work and thank you for giving me a passion worth fighting for.I hope one day soon i may have the honor of having a discussion with you myself one day but until then keep fighting for whats right best wishes and health.

  14. larry says:

    Just had an MRI on my left shoulder, after looking at the images I saw what looked like a rectangle with letters on it in my tissue, I have never been operated on so its odd to say the least. I pick up the report today, if they recommend surgery I will demand they give that thing to me and not a government man. I took pics of it so I will always have a record of whatever this is. How it got there is a mystery.

  15. Darthula says:

    Hi Graham,

    We will miss you at Contact in the Desert here in a few days. You are my favorite speaker at that event. It won’t be the same without you. My husband makes the c60 supplement, we are the couple that gave you the c60live product last year. Darthula and Max

  16. Denis says:

    Hi Graham. I hope you consider my suggestion.

    I’ve been a fan of your efforts, and I hope you unlock the key to immortality for both of us so you can continue (and perhaps solve) our ancient past so I can learn it from you.

    I’m sure you’re aware of Rogan’s latest podcast with Robert Schoch… It had me thinking. I would pay blueray dvd price to watch your narrating you newest book in a lecture-style presentation. Even if it’s abridged but covers all the bases.

    I’d love for you to do this with Fingerprints and Magicians, too!

    Keep up the great work and all the best.


  17. Dan Roberts says:

    You are remarkable sir, and that is literal. I cannot tell enough people about your work, its importance is second to none in understanding our true history. I take my hat off to you. 🙂

  18. Fredrik Norman says:

    Hi Graham

    Stumbled upon some of your great work again the other day. I am truly excited now that I finaly have a bookcase to collect all kind of magnificent books in. Other than some history and invention books that make out my small collection, I now have an urge to get all your great books to store at the honorable top shelf. Unfortunately it’s quite complicated to get a hold of the none pocket versions here in Sweden, but I got Fingerprints Of The Gods and Supernatural. Then i threw in Keeper Of Genesis too. Super excited! Can’t wait to bench read them. The search for the rest just began!

    Keep on rockin!

  19. Pam Weil says:

    Dear Graham,

    thank you for your great books, I feel the same way about you I do about Conner Cruse O’Brian, your writing feels free, of what I’m not sure, dogma? But whatever it is it welcomes me to participate in the ideas you are sharing.

    I’ve lived my whole life in Michigan and just returned from a trip around the north shore of Lake Superior, I went to the site of the Agawa pictographs (which the park literature describes as 2 to 3 hundred years old, yes hundred?). In our trip last summer to experience the eclipses we stopped at the Cahokia mounds, wow, there is clearly so much to know, i can feel it.

    really looking forward to your new book! your friend in Michigan, Pam

  20. Keith says:

    Dear Mr. Hancock –

    I am aware that you are writing your next book, which focuses on the USA. I have some incredibly interesting evidence that you should see sometime. I live in Washington State, in the Seattle/Tacoma area, not far from Mt. Rainier. I have two pieces of stone which has the unmistakable markings of being cut with machine tools. This is similar to what many people have seen in Egypt, Peru, Turkey, etc etc.

    Please get in touch with me if you would like more information.

    Thank you.

  22. Doug McGill says:

    Hi Graham,
    I wanted to mention a couple of observations about possible ancient civilization drawn from my own travels, physically and on the Interwebs.
    First, I haven’t seen that you or other students of ancient civilization have studied the Sigirya site in Sri Lanka. It’s a stunning place, a 5th century palace carved out of rock at the top of a 200-meter high butte in the central Sri Lanka plains. I’ve been there and noticed megalithic stone construction that reminded me of Egypt and Peru. There’s a structure called the Throne for example at Sigirya that looks much like the Hitching Post of the Sun at Macchu Pichu, a giant seat perfectly cut out of stone. As well, there is a garden complex at ground level that contain pools and fountains fed by a cistern that’s located at the top of the butte, and then by chutes and channels bored straight out of the rock going down 200 meters and then to the pools. The required engineering for such a feat looks far beyond what even a 5th century Ceylonese King could muster. Likewise, in the archeology of the palace complex at the top of the butte, there appears to be both high sophisticated megalithic stonework, at a deeper and older level than what was probably constructed by the 5th century king, again similar to what one finds in Peru—older sophisticated stonework and more recent and more primitive Incan work.

    Second, watching YouTubes of excavations in Peru, I notice much of the oldest construction uses a kind of black concrete that appears to have been both heated and molded. It reminds me very much of the strange geology of Mount Kailash which also is made of the same kind of black concrete, which also appears to have been heated and molded in some way. And again, I’ve not seen (though maybe I’ve just missed it), that you’ve tackled Mount Kailash which surely is one of the great ancient mysteries when it comes to materials, construction, use and much else.

    Thanks for all that you do!

    Do not worry; we are not meat robots. If we were, we would not have faults or weakness.
    I went from studying anthropology to molecular biology to molecular chemistry to computer science to art to Judaism to Buddhism to on and on and on. The truth is, if one is studying science right, it only enhances your understanding of the spiritual. It only sets your brain on fire when you make connections. Through every natural thing, spiritual and creative sources speak to us. Not just to us too. Animals, insects, and plants can feel it and think of it and respond to it too. The chemistry and molecular actions of all life are connected to the spiritual. What animates the processes of life?
    I think ancient man, especially man before & at the beginning of civilization was advanced in a way we are not. Ancient man was connected more to the nature of life, our planet, the rhythms and responses of life, movements of the heavens. They understood these things in ways we can not, because these things informed them on how to succeed and survive. Out of that grew a spiritual science that they shared and the reason we do not understand their images and writing often is because we keep trying to relate it to our knowledge and because we will not slow down and really observe their knowledge and step into their experience. Reductionist thinking is lost in this effort; it will never get us there. Like an artist needs to slow down and observe the subject and receive it without preconception, we need to slow down and sit in the space and life of ancient man or of an animal or plant. We need to sit where the only light is from heaven, the only food is what we pull from the earth. It is a place where we only have what we create & our imagination is free. A Buddhist told me once that the beauty of Haiku comes from the limitations it puts on the writer. Ancient people understood the world differently because they faced different limitations than we do. We may have to experience those same limitations to understand that place, their science, their technology. You’ve come closer to it than most. 😉

  25. Howard Luken says:

    I am from Ohio, born in Dayton, lived in Columbus most of my life and am now down near Athens operating my Northwest Territory Coach House and B&B. You have an open invitation to stay Mr. Hancock. I have been fascinated by the same mountain of evidence that a previous high level civilization existed before our own, that it was wiped out by a global catastrophe, and the only thing that survived proving that high level of sophistication is the Pyramid at Giza. We can’t build that today.
    I have also been fascinated by the earthworks all over Ohio and the entire nation. Mound builders they used to call them when I was a kid. Now they, the “authorities”, would have us believe they’re all just religious sites, cathedrals of an ancient time. Perhaps works like the Serpent Mound which apparently has no useful purpose beside being decorative are religious in nature but the mounds near Newark are something very different. If you take into account weathering its obvious they were fortifications. Deep moats used to surround the rings of mounds and the mounds themselves were much higher than today. They had relatively small entrances where stockades would have stood and they were topped with log fortification walls much like the ring towns in England. Built to withstand invaders who wanted your food and women. At Newark they are teaching clueless folks that they are all wonderful, peaceful centers of religious pilgrimages with fanciful processions and happy smiling priests and shamans. Not so. They had to build these earthworks to keep the marauding hordes at bay and to keep from being cannibalized. There is evidence across the country that these folks were merely copying an ancient racial memory of gigantic pyramids who’s purpose was to provide power and central government but that lost civilization failed and contact was lost with the knowledge when they stopped arriving around the planet. Cargo cultures, that is all America’s native tribes degenerated into. Waiting for the “gods” in their flying machines and great ships sailing up the rivers full of crates of Spam and shiny mirrors… just like the Pacific islanders who built model airplanes out of sticks and set them up on hillsides hoping the GI’s in their DC-3’s would return but never did. For 12,000 years they waited while each generation lost more of the original knowledge and slid into superstition and stagnation, using the same bows and arrows their ancestors did thousands of years before after the metal tools and machines had rusted to dust.
    All one has to do is look at it all with an open mind and not one influenced by mystical wishful thinking. There is where you and I part ways in explaining all this. I don’t think that lost civilization were more soulful than ours. I think they were ruled by a previous AI, artificial intelligence that they created and lost control of. Perhaps that is why tales of wars between the gods may be true, but it was a war fought between the human race and it’s insane child, the AI. It survived and outlasted their civilization and is still here but imprisoned in Nicola Tesla’s “ether”. That electromagnetic field that the Earth itself generates which he tapped into and could have freed the species from drudgery. Unfortunately the ruling banking class had other ideas to keep us burning black goo for another century or more. Perhaps this is the influence of that first AI, poisoning the minds of avaricious men, patiently waiting 10,000 years or so for its release from prison by pushing men to rebuild its physical form.
    Then we suffer for real.

    Read your books and discussions of Younger Dryas event. Wouldn’t this explain water erosion of Sphinx. If YD was about 8600 BC, dating the Sphinx to 9000 BC seems reasonable. Not sure of current elevation of GIZA plateau above current MSL, but it seems reasonable that fresh water tidal wave into Med and Black Sea could easily catastrophically flood the plateau and the bases of Sphinx

  27. Darren says:

    Hello Mr Hancock, just wanted to say thanks for renewing my interest in the subjects you cover, there’s so much garbage with very little truth, and thanks for being a reliable source that I can be proud to refer others to.
    Many thanks

    Lovely work. ? How do we know the column is in fact Roman has an architectural analysis revealed the tunnel connection to the Roman work.best work I’ve seen and yet so incomplete. Perhaps bring Arlington Mallory to the next party.his bog iron furnace has never been explicitly refuted and fits in with the idea that the sea people were miners who lost their copper market after santorini.

    1. Cwbuckles says:

      In so far as my own work in the dry caves of Nevada suggest winnemucca lake colo study proves cup and line supposedly 5 or 6 thous yrs old really 9 to14 yrs old so Clovis Folsom big gaps not much in between chief who was buried and surfaced as lake dried shown at St. Louis worlds fair disappears without a trace afterwards true 10 footerBUT how do you write that when it go’s against native beliefs or offends some people so getting it is fun presenting it is dangerous absurd futile the list gos on whoever made the cup marks and carved the snake outside Fallon wrestled mastodon and wore 18 inch mocassins

  30. Tony says:

    Looking forward to learning what -this- deep dive will tell me about my own continent.

    And, thanks for the writing encouragement. Because of books like yours, I’ve been impelled to research the history of the region I grew up in. Back to 11,000 years ago. I’ve nearly completed that study and … now that I know it for the first time … found there’s a wonderful story in it all. So you advice is a timely welcome. Best regards!

  31. cosmicforce says:

    Dear mr.handcock i know you get alot of emails from lots of different people and its kinda hard to keep up with…i just hope this one gets through to you, want to keep it short and sweet, very important message to you, don’t mean to tell you how to suck eggs but, it is of the utmost importance that you speak to Mr.Andrew Norton Webber he’s been trying to get hold of you … he holds the missing piece of information to the amnesia on earth, which is the distilled water knowledge, it is 100% worth your time Mr.Handcock no BS literally the best info you’ll hear to date, will definitley clear up alotta none sense for you, ancient pyramid builders drunk big volumes of distilled water everyday, secret to their immense intellegence! By the way Fingerprints of the gods is the craziest book i’ve ever held in my hands!!!
