9780099799917: Legend: The Genesis of Civilisation

David Rohl continues his quest to reach the historical kernel lying at the heart of some of the greatest unsolved problems and mysteries of Old World history and archaeology. He reveals what really happened in seven famous myths and legends bequeathed to us by the ancients and shows us that the passage of time has not wiped away all the evidence, and it is possible to reach the reality behind the legends. LEGEND reveals the historical truth which lies at the heart of the Book of Genesis: * The Garden of Eden is finally found * Heroes from the Book of Genesis are indentified in ancient records * The true site of Noah's Ark is located in Kurdistan * Paradise is discovered on a desert island in the Persian Gulf * The mysterious origins of the first pharaohs are revealed

From the Back Cover:

For centuries scholars and explorers have searched for Eden and its fabled Garden. Now, at last, the true location of the cradle of civilization can be revealed. David Rohl peels back the layers of myth to expose the extraordinary truth which lies at the heart of the book of Genesis.

Legend overflows with amazing discoveries and brilliant archaeological detective work. Years of research have brought David Rohl within reach of solutions to many of the great mysteries surrounding our origins.
