Hi ya, I will watch 'almost' any history documentary, hence my joining the Graham Hancock site, although I post here mainly on Inner Space as I have practiced Meditation for 45+years. I do not agree with everything Graham has said in his documentaries, but he got off his arse and with video camera in hand and filmed sites around the world that I had never seen or should I say filmed sites that the 'mainstream' couldn't be bothered to do! I do not believe aliens built the Giza complex or that the moon is hollow, etc. But I love history so what can I do? What mainstream documentary series are there that will even look at new ideas (that may challenge their theories)? I am old enough to remember being shocked that academia could lie about archaeology as when I read about Piltdown man, when I was about 7yrs old (there are others), so I welcome new ideas both in history and science and will watch or read most new theories (not levitation or rock melting, etc) The same answer goes for D. Rohl, do I believe everything he says, no, but he gets off his arse and goes to places and films sites I have never seen and sometimes never heard of, as long as he does this in a professional manner I will watch him again and I will take from them ideas and facts as I want. Don't forget that D. Rohl is an archaeologist, taught at UCL by the likes of Nicholas Coldstream, Prof H. Smith, Prof G. Martin and also Peter Parr who taught him Levantine Arch. at the Institute of Arch. London, so he is not an amateur by any stretch of the imagination. In the lecture I posted he does play to his bible audience no doubt it but I can see these elements and they don't sway me, as I said I like the quality of his documentaries/work and so long as he keeps offering different perspectives and new places I will carry on watching/reading. By the way there is more than just one archaeologist, that supports similar theories, they know that the dates are suspect, by how much is the question. I will mention Gobekli Tepi for instance I heard about it a long, long time ago and wondered why the 'mainstream' didn't let everyone know about this amazing site? We can guess, who would want to have to rewrite their books or have them removed from student lists of must read literature, because they are out of date? In fact on a walking holiday in Wales some years ago (2004), I met a student of Archaeology at Leicester Uni and we had a great time talking about archaeology when I mentioned Gobekli Tepi he had never heard of it? He didn't believe it and said he would look into it, why was he not made aware of this site?
The Giza Orion layout, is another interesting theory. As a child I visited most archaeology sites in the england and one in particular stood out, The Thornburough Henges [www.yas.org.uk] , it was dug by Newcastle Uni and the head of the dig said that, 'its layout mirrored Orion' this is a mainstream guy, I tried to find out more but there is sadly nothing much really, (there is a large aggregates company that has systematically been quarrying the whole area for years and seeks govt approval for more areas to clear all the time) this site for me suggests that ancient people did appreciate/link to the formations of stars and the Egyptians seem to have done the same? We need these challenges to the 'mainstream' to keep it fresh and real, so I am grateful to both authors for their efforts. malc
