Over the past centuries, researchers have found bones and articrafts showing that people like ourselves existed on earth millions years ago. But the scientific establishment has suppressed, ignored or forgotten these remarkable facts. Why? Because they contradict dominant views of human origins and antiquity. Evolutionary prejudices, deeply held powerful groups of scientists, have acted as what Michael A.Cremo and Richard L.Thompson call a knowledge filter. And the filtering, intentional or not, has left us with a radically incomplete set of facts for building our ideas about human origins According to Cremo and Thompson, we have come to accept a picture of prehistory that is largely incorrect. This book is a call for a change in today's arbitrarly rigid minset. Deploying an unexpectedly great number of convincing facts, deeply illuminated with critical analysis. Cremo and Thompson challenge us to rethink our understanding of human origins, identity and destiny. In forbidden archeology, we accompany the authors on a fascinating intellectual expedition.
We take part in the literary excavation of a vast store of hidden knowledge that adds a new dimension to our understanding of the history of our spieces. The journey of exploration takes us accross five continents to key archeological sites. Some long forgotten, some the centre of ongoing research. Along the way, we encounter many famous and infamous pioneers of prehistoric research, all with secrets to share. "Forbidden archeology" is bound to inspire controversy, challenging as ti does one of the most fundamental components of the modern scientific world view. Meticulously researched and carefully written. The book takes us to a crossroads of knoeledge and invites us to take a courageous first step in a new direction of truth.
