Graham Hancock

  • Malgré les avancées scientifiques, les origines de l'humanité restent couvertes de zones d'ombres. De l'Amazonie encore inexplorée au célèbre site d'Angkor Wat, des lignes de Nazca à Stonehenge, des terrassements américains aux pyramides égyptiennes, Graham Hancock part à la découverte des mystères qui entourent la Préhistoire et les premiers peuplements, accompagné des plus grands spécialistes.
    Attentif à ne pas laisser les idées préconçues entraver sa recherche, il remet en cause les vérités établies et ouvre la porte à de nouvelles possibilités.

  • Depuis toujours, l'archéologue Graham Hancock se passionne pour l'origine de l'humanité. À ses yeux, les mythes et les légendes façonnés par les civilisations les plus anciennes puisent leurs sources dans des réalités historiques. Que s'est-il passé exactement sur la terre à la fin de l'ère glaciaire, lorsque le niveau des mers s'est mis à augmenter en submergeant des continents ? Pour lui, le doute n'est guère possible : des civilisations entières, dont on n'a pas encore retrouvé trace, ont été englouties.
    Fort de cette conviction, il s'est donc muni de radars très puissants et des moyens d'investigation les plus modernes pour explorer pendant de longues années, avec une extrême minutie, le fond des mers et des océans. Ses conclusions sont stupéfiantes. Car, réfutant les assertions des archéologues les plus respectés, il a découvert de troublants vestiges aux emplacements mêmes où les mythes les plaçaient : dans la mer du Bengale et l'océan Indien, sur les côtes japonaises, en mer Méditerranée et dans l'océan Atlantique.
    De quoi ébranler bien des idées reçues et remettre en cause les données scientifiques les plus communément admises.

  • Magiciens des dieux

    Graham Hancock

    Vers la fin du dernier âge de glace, il y a 12 800 ans, une comète gigantesque s'est brisée en de multiples fragments au sein du système solaire. Certains ont frappé la Terre et engendré un déluge à l'échelle planétaire. Cet événement, que l'on retrouve dans bien des mythes à travers l'histoire, ne marquait que le premier passage de ces débris...
    Une seconde série d'impacts aussi dévastatrice que la première a en effet causé une inondation supplémentaire il y a environ 11 600 ans. Selon Platon, c'est à cette date que l'Atlantide aurait été submergée par les flots.
    D'autres éléments avancés dans ce livre prouvent qu'une société évoluée ayant vécue durant l'âge de glace a été détruite par ces cataclysmes. Mais certains de ses membres survécurent. Ces « magiciens des dieux » ranimèrent la flamme de la civilisation et nous laissèrent un message, un avertissement pour l'avenir...

  • Du fond des âges, de mystérieux signes et écrits de toutes origines tentent de nous délivrer un message. Graham Hancock assemble, pièce après pièce, ce gigantesque puzzle regroupant les grands mystères du monde : les immenses dessins au sol de Nazca, les énigmatiques cartes médiévales de l'Antarctique libre des glaces, les pyramides d'Égypte et d'Amérique centrale et leurs corrélations mathématiques, pour n'en citer que quelques-uns. Mais dans ce livre duquel on ne peut s'arracher, Hancock ne se limite pas à cette captivante démonstration. Il propose, ni plus ni moins, une nouvelle approche de l'histoire de l'Homme depuis les commencements. Il se lance sur la trace d'une civilisation primordiale d'un niveau scientifique et culturel très élevé, anéantie des milliers d'années avant la construction des pyramides d'Égypte dans une catastrophe apocalyptique appelée, si l'on en croit la périodicité fixe des cycles cosmiques, à se reproduire...

  • As mankind faces its deadliest battle, two young women must unite to prevent the forces of evil destroying the world as we know it. But theirs is no ordinary alliance, for these two women live at opposite ends of history, until fate brings them together and their destinies are inextricably intertwined.

Only Leoni and Ria can stop him...

  • Graham Hancock has spent nine years of his life tracking down the exact location of the Ark of the Covenant. The obsession is well worth sharing and the excitement is nail biting.

  • A young girl called Tozi stands at the bottom of a pyramid, waiting to be led to the top where her heart will be cut out...

    Pepillo, a Spanish orphan who serves a sadistic Dominican friar, is aboard the Spanish fleet as it sails towards Mexico...

    This is the epic story of the clash of two empires, two armies and two gods of war. Five hundred desperate adventurers are about to pit themselves against the most brutal armies of the ancient Americas, armies hundreds of thousands strong.

    This is a war of gods and men. Dark powers that work behind the scenes of history show their hand as the prophecy of the return of Quetzalcoatl is fulfilled with the arrival of Cortes. The Aztec ruler Moctezuma fights to maintain the demands of the war god Huitzilopochtli for human sacrifice. The Spanish Inquisition is planning an even greater blood-letting.

    Caught up in the headlong collision between two gods of war are Tozi, Pepillo and the beautiful sex slave Malinal whose hatred of Moctezuma runs so deep she will sell out her own land and people to destroy him.

  • Graham Hancock, an expert in ancient civilisations and author of the 7 million selling Fingerprints of the Gods, and expert too, on the use of hallucinogens to achieve higher states of consciousness, brings these two interests together in the second volume of the War God trilogy.

    The conquistador Hernàn Cortés is dreaming of Tenochtitlan, the golden city of Aztecs. But in order to win the Aztecs' gold, Cortés and his small force of just five hundred men will have to defeat the psychotic emperor Moctezuma and the armies of hundreds of thousands he commands.

    Cortés expects that the warlike Tlascalans, hereditary enemies of the Aztecs, will join him, but instead finds himself locked in a deadly struggle. Even as Cortés risks all in the bloody campaign against the Tlascalans, he plays mind games with Moctezuma, aiming to dismantle the Aztec emperor's confidence and defeat him psychologically before ever having to face him on the battlefield.

    In this he is aided by his lover Malinal, a beautiful Mayan princess. It is from Malinal that Cortés learns of the myth of Quetzalcoatl, 'The Plumed Serpent'. She shows him how to exploit the prophecy of the fabled god king's return to weaken Moctezuma's resolve and keep alive the suspicion that the conquistador might actually be Quetzalcoatl himself.

    Meanwhile Malinal's friend, the witch Tozi, wages a supernatural war of her own against Hummingbird, the terrifying demon the Aztecs worship as a god, and against the evil sorcerer Acopol who does his bidding.

  • Graham Hancock's multi-million bestseller Fingerprints of the Gods remains an astonishing, deeply controversial, wide-ranging investigation of the mysteries of our past and the evidence for Earth's lost civilization. Twenty years on, Hancock returned with the sequel to his seminal work filled with completely new, scientific and archaeological evidence, which has only recently come to light. On the heels of the very successful hardcover edition, Hancock returns with this paperback version including two chapters brimming with recent reporting of fresh scientific advances (ranging from DNA to astrophysics) that substantially support the case.Near the end of the last Ice Age 12,800 years ago, a giant comet that had entered the solar system from deep space thousands of years earlier, broke into multiple fragments. Some of these struck the Earth causing a global cataclysm on a scale unseen since the extinction of the dinosaurs. At least eight of the fragments hit the North American ice cap, while further fragments hit the northern European ice cap. The impacts, from comet fragments a mile wide approaching at more than 60,000 miles an hour, generated huge amounts of heat which instantly liquidized millions of square kilometers of ice, destabilizing the Earth's crust and causing the global Deluge that is remembered in myths all around the world.A second series of impacts, equally devastating, causing further cataclysmic flooding, occurred 11,600 years ago, the exact date that Plato gives for the destruction and submergence of Atlantis. The evidence revealed in this book shows beyond reasonable doubt that an advanced civilization that flourished during the Ice Age was destroyed in the global cataclysms between 12,800 and 11,600 years ago.But there were survivors - known to later cultures by names such as 'the Sages', 'the Magicians', 'the Shining Ones', and 'the Mystery Teachers of Heaven'. They travelled the world in their great ships doing all in their power to keep the spark of civilization burning. They settled at key locations - Gobekli Tepe in Turkey, Baalbek in the Lebanon, Giza in Egypt, ancient Sumer, Mexico, Peru and across the Pacific where a huge pyramid has recently been discovered in Indonesia. Everywhere they went these 'Magicians of the Gods' brought with them the memory of a time when mankind had fallen out of harmony with the universe and paid a heavy price.A memory and a warning to the future... For the comet that wrought such destruction between 12,800 and 11,600 years may not be done with us yet. Astronomers believe that a 20-mile wide 'dark' fragment of the original giant comet remains hidden within its debris stream and threatens the Earth. An astronomical message encoded at Gobekli Tepe, and in the Sphinx and the pyramids of Egypt,warns that the 'Great Return' will occur in our time...

  • Graham Hancock, an expert in ancient civilisations and author of the 9 million selling Fingerprints of the Gods, and expert too, on the use of hallucinogens to achieve higher states of consciousness, brings these two interests together in the final volume of the War God trilogy.

  • Exploring the past with hi-tech tools of modern archaeology, geology and astronomy, Hancock exposes an eerie network of connections between Egyptian pyramids, Andean temples, spherical geometry, and astro-navigation. He makes claim for a lost civilization that flourished during the last ice age.

  • An asteroid transformed Mars from a lush planet with rivers and oceans into a bleak and icy hell. Is Earth condemned to the same fate, or can we protect ourselves and our planet from extinction?In his most riveting and revealing book yet, Graham Hancock examines the evidence that the barren Red Planet was once home to a lush environment of flowing rivers, lakes, and oceans. Could Mars have sustained life and civilization?Megaliths found on the parched shores of Cydonia, a former Martian ocean, mirror the geometrical conventions of the pyramids at Egypt's Giza necropolis. Especially startling is a Sphinx-like structure depicting a face with distinguishable diadem, teeth, mouth and an Egyptian-style headdress. Might there be a connection between the structures of Egypt and those of Mars? Why does NASA continue to dismiss these remarkable anomalies as "a trick of light"? Hancock points to the intriguing possibility that ancient Martian civilization is communicating with us through the remarkable structures it left behind.In exploring the possible traces left by the Martian civilization and the cosmic cataclysm that may have ended it, The Mars Mystery is both an illumination of our ancient past and a warning--that we still have time to heed--about our ultimate fate.From the Trade Paperback edition.

  • A roller coaster intellectual journey through the back streets and rat runs of history to uncover the traces in architecture and monuments of a secret religion that has shaped the world.

  • The fact of the Lost Ark of the Covenant is one of the grant historical mysteries of all time. To believers, the Ark is the legendary vesel holding the stone tablets of the Ten Commandments. The Bible contains hundreds of references to the Ark's power to level mountains, destroy armies, and lay waste to cities. The Ark itself, however, mysteriously disappears from recorded history sometime after the building of the Temple of Solomon.
    After ten years of searching through the dusty archives of Europe and the Middle East, as well as braving the real-life dangers of a bloody civil war in Ethiopia, Graham Hancock has succeeded where scores of others have failed. This intrepid journalist has tracked down the true story behind the myths and legends -- revealing where the Ark is today, how it got there, and why it remains hidden.
    Part fascinating scholarship and part entertaining adventure yarn, tying together some of the most intriguing tales of all time -- from the Knights Templar and Prester John to Parsival and the Holy Grail -- this book will appeal to anyone fascinated by the revelation of hidden truths, the discovery of secret mysteries.
