In “Quest for the Lost Civilization,” Graham Hancock travels to the Egyptian pyramids, the Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan, Carnac in Brittany, Ankor Wat in Cambodia, La Venta in Mexico, Easter Island in Polynesia, and more, in a huge effort to unravel the mysteries of our ancient history. Hancock must have oodles of frequent flyer miles.

He finds connections, similarities, suggesting that 12,000 or more years ago a global civilization must have been destroyed by an enormous world-wide flood. The places Hancock visits were once part of, or offsprings of, that lost civilization.

The evidence is compelling. Layouts of ancient complexes that correspond to the positions of the constellations 12,000 years ago. Cultural artifacts that show remarkable similarities with artifacts of other distant places from the same era. Coincident mythology. Pyramids themselves. The significance of the geometric angle between locations, and more, and more, and more.

Much to my iconoclastic bent, Hancock good-naturedly and rigorously demonstrates that the Experts are wrong, or at the very least questionable in their dogmas.

Ever since reading Graham Hancock’s “Fingerprints of the Gods” I have been fascinated by the depths (both ocean and intellectually) to which he explores the history of human life on this planet.

You might not have 2 1/2 hours to spend at one time watching this really interesting documentary, but you can take it in 3-fifty minute segments. It is definitely worth the time spent.
