Are history books giving us the whole story? Or is civilization far more complex and for older than we have been taught?
Our school textbooks barely mention the 6,000-year-old Sumerian civilization, yet the latest archaeological findings at sites such as Jericho, and most recently, Gobekli Tepe in Turkey, have been dated to 10,000 BC.
Civilization goes back at least another 10,000 years, if we are willing to believe what our ancestors themselves claimed.
The Lost Civilization Enigma reveals the truth about:
Lost magnitudes to known cultures, such as the Bosnian Pyramids and the civilization of "Old Europe";
The fabled lost "golden" cities of South America and the Amazon, which are slowly being rediscovered;
Fascinating examples of lost technology, such as the Antikythera Device;
Atlantis and the fact that it was a real civilization.
Analyzing historical and archaeological records, best-selling author Philip Coppens demonstrates that there is substantial evidence that civilization is far older, far more advanced, and far more special than is currently accepted. Clearly, our history books have left out a great deal!

Not as factual as I would have liked
The author constantly berates scientists as having prejudices against his ideas and urges them to get out into the field. As a scientist I have to say that I spend plenty of time in the field and have changed my hypotheses many times. At the same time the author holds up stories or legends and states that they "obviously" or "undoubtedly" must be true even though he sometimes presents little or no evidence to support the idea. Still, I must say that the book touches on many interesting topics. I enjoyed it, even though I gritted my teeth through some sections.
I, too would love it if some of the ideas in this book were true, and they may be, but we need hard proof.
Yes. His writing style is not bad and he brought up some interesting points.
His voice is excellent.
I would cut out the conjecture and reciting of legends as though they were fact. With some careful editing, this would be an excellent book.
