In this work the author embarks on a quest for the whereabouts, nature and few surviving traces of a lost civilization that was destroyed long ago and obliterated from human memory long before any of the cultures of historical antiquity rose to prominence. While Hancock does not believe that this civilization was Atlantis, he taps into the same current of human yearning that has made the Atlantis myth such a powerful one, and mixes intellectual adventure with exacting physical exploration of dramatic and sometimes dangerous locations in his pursuit of the tantalizing hints and scraps of evidence that point to a great and unsolved mystery.
In a drastic re-evaluation of man's past, using the high-tech tools of modern archaeology, geology and astronomy, Hancock exposes the network of connections between Egyptian pyramids, Andean temples, spherical geometry, and astro-navigation.
Author and journalist Graham Hancock was an East African correspondent for the Economist and covered the Ogaden war between Somalia and Ethiopia for the London Sunday Times.

Mencken Award for outstanding book of journalism in 1990), Journey Through Pakistan, and the international bestseller The Sign and the Seal, which documents Hancock's real-life quest for the lost Ark of the Covenant. Also the author of the top bestseller, Fingerprints of the Gods, Hancock has appeared on television with Michael Palin in his Pole to Pole series. He has also made appearances on the BBC, CNN, and the National Geographic's Explorer series to discuss stories related to his book The Sign and the Seal.
