On an odyssey stretching from the pyramids of ancient Egypt to South American ruins, from Easter Island to Angkor Wat, the authors put forward compelling evidence to suggest that cultures we term ancient were in fact the heirs to an older lost civilization, and the inheritors of its archaic wisdom.

In Heaven's Mirror, author Graham Hancock continues the quest begun in his No. 1 international bestseller Fingerprints of the Gods. He attempts to rediscover the hidden legacy of mankind--the revelation that the cultures we term ancient were, in fact, the heirs to a far older forgotten civilisation, and the inheritors of its archaic wisdom.
Working with the photographer Santha Faiia, his wife, Hancock traces a network of sacred sites around the globe on a spectacular voyage of discovery that takes us from the pyramids and temples of ancient Egypt to the enigmatic statues of Easter Island; from the haunting ruins of pre-Columbian America to the splendours of Angkor Wat, in order to crack the code of our lost ancestors. It is an odyssey that leads to sunken monuments and hidden chambers--a journey through myth and magic, and astounding archaeological revelations, that forces us to rethink our entire conception of the origins of civilisation.
Much more than a sequel to Fingerprints of the Gods,Heaven's Mirror is a plunge into the spirituality of the ancients--a search for the revelation of a secret written in the language of astronomy, and recorded in the very foundations of the holiest sites of antiquity.--Christine ButteryAbout the Author:
