Hi Echoes Many thanks for this. And, no, Book 1 won't be changed. I meant relaunch it in terms of a new effort to make people aware it exists and to do so in the context of Book 2 which will bring closure to the story. All the best Graham

Hi Carol, Yes I'm sure the foul language was part of the problem. I have to say though I don't think the violence was gratuitous -- in the dictionary sense of being there without apparent reason, cause of justification. I've written a short essay which addresses this -- and other -- points and perhaps you might find it of interest. Good and evil in Entangled By Graham Hancock Critics of my

Thank you for these kind comments. I'm very glad you liked and saw the point of Entangled. Most of my readers have shunned the book, however, and some -- judging from the reviews on Amazon.com -- have absolutely hated it! It pretty much vanished without trace after being published and there has been no interest shown in it by TV or movies or anyone else. I intend to relaunch Entangled and comp

Hi again DNA Good question, thank you. This idea -- that if one one consumes food or drink in the underworld one is doomed to spend eternity there -- is widespread throughout ancient mythology. The most famous myth in which we hear of this is the story of Persephone's abduction to the underworld. But the Japanese have a similar story -- the story of Izanagi and Izanami. So too does ancient India

Hi DNA Thanks for asking about Entangled 2. It is dear to my heart. I ran into problems with my UK publisher who I felt didn’t support Volume 1 properly after my editor left. I have since moved to another publisher with my editor. This has involved some dancing around with the order in which books appear. I have now finished the first two volumes of a three volume series of epic adventure novels

Hi Hans The origin of the Ark of the Covenant is undoubtedly in Egypt. It was, after all, built in Sinai according to a blueprint revealed to Moses -- at least so say the Biblical texts. And Moses was reared in the household of the pharaoh. There are many Ark-like objects, of great mystery, described in ancient Egyptian annals and scriptures. I go into all this at length in my 1992 book The Sig

Audrey -- you may want no part of "such religious nonsense", and I fully understand why. However such "religious nonsense" is in fact what drives key players in the region, whether Jewish fundamentalist, Christian fundamentalist or Shia fundamentalist. No matter how much one may dislike and despise such beliefs, to ignore their impact on what is happening in the real world is,

It is my pleasure to welcome Thomas Razzeto as our author of the month for March 2012. Thomas brings a fresh, original and encouraging perspective to study of the Mayan calendar and the implications of 2012.

Archae -- you write "It's not my fault that fringe authors are still using it as evidence... If it completely disappeared tomorrow I'd be more than happy to move on to something else....." So you will understand then how frustrated I feel every time I hear the far-fetched Egyptological theory that the pyramids of Giza are "tombs and tombs only" churned out ad nauseam as thou

Archae,your point had been conceded, you are flogging a dead horse here and it is getting boring. By all means continue to thrash the same horse if that's what turns you on; you are of course welcome to do so, and we will always accord you space here for that purpose. But I really feel you should also at least make an attempt to address many of the anomalous pieces of geological evidence that

A warm welcome to Scott and Gary who are already well known on these boards and need no introduction. I wrote the foreword to their book because I think they've done insightful and innovative work here, bringing important new data and new ideas to the Giza "table". I look forward to the discussions.

Hi again Archae I’ve never suggested that the historical ancient Egyptians, who saw their own civilization as a legacy of the time of the gods, were unable to quarry, move and raise up large blocks of stone – just think of the great obelisks at the Karnak and Luxor temples, or the unfinished obelisk at Aswan which was obviously intended to be moved once finished. This, however, is not the same

Hello Archae Thanks for this. I’ve looked into the point you raise and I was mistaken. The blocks in the King’s Chamber walls are of varying sizes and the smaller ones certainly don’t reach 70 tons though some of the largest may come close. I apologize to my readers for this error, made 17 years ago in Chapter 38 of Fingerprints of the Gods. It does not however undermine the main point I wish
