Suspicion naturally arises when you read a promo line on a back cover that says, 'This is the most important book concerning the Great Pyramid written in the last 20 years.' In this case, however, it may be fact. In writing The Giza Power Plant, mechanical engineer Christopher Dunn reverse-engineered the Great Pyramid at Giza to discover its use. His startling conclusions blow the heck out of traditional Egyptology's rather silly notions that it was built with copper tools by a society that lacked the wheel. While revisionist pyramid studies are rife with ridiculous theories that give the topic a bad name, The Giza Power Plant takes into accoount existing fact and artifact without having to rely on unprovable assertions. A must-read for truth seekers who aren't afraid to consider the idea that Western culture of the 21st century may not be the pinnacle of human evolution and achievement. --P. Randall Coha
Unlocking the secrets of the pyramids. For thousands of years the pyramids have stood, imposing and enigmatic, refusing to give up their secrets. In this thrilling book of scientific and historical detective work, the authors try to answer some of history's oldest questions... Why did the Egyptians really build pyramids? What lies inside the Great Pyramid's hidden chamber and what awesome secret, unseen for 4500 years, could be concealed there? Bauval and Gilbert have spent over ten years investigating the mysteries of the pyramids. Their conclusions have split the academic establishment.
Fingerprints of the Gods is the revolutionary rewrite of history that has persuaded millions of readers throughout the world to change their preconceptions about the history behind modern society. An intellectual detective story, this unique history book directs probing questions at orthodox history, presenting disturbing new evidence that historians have tried - but failed - to explain. This groundbreaking evidence includes: Accurate ancient maps that show the world as it last looked during the Ice Age, thousands of years before any civilisation capable of making such maps is supposed to have existed. Evidence of the devastating scientifiic and astronomical information encoded into prehistoric myths. The incredible feat of the construction of the great pyramids of Egypt and of megalithic temples on the Giza plateau
After nine years investigating the exact location of the ultimate religious icon, the Ark of the Covenant, British researcher and investigative journalist Graham Hancock reveals his status-quo shattering discoveries. Part mystery thriller, part true adventure and part travel book, this gripping piece of historical research challenges society's principal religious preconceptions and takes the reader on a rollercoaster ride through ancient history.
In the last three years a covert and high-powered archaeological search has taken place at Giza to locate the Hall of Records under the Sphinx and also find a 'secret' room inside the Great Pyramid. This work aims to reveal the archaeological discoveries the authorities have tried to keep secret.
The Orion Mystery, published in 1994, introduced the world to a highly original, and now internationally famous, star-correlation theory about the Giza Pyramids in Egypt. It sent a huge shock-wave of controversy throughout the scientific community, the effects of which are still felt today. 'The Egypt Code' develops this pyramid-stars correlation, challenging the long held assumption by many Egyptologists that the pyramids were tombs principally meant to house the bodies of dead kings. In addition to this theory, Robert Bauval also reveals an amazing 'Grand Unified Plan', which involves the wonderful temple of Upper Egypt. 'The Egypt Code' iss unlike any other book before it and covers the whole of Egypt's ancient civilisation in a manner never before attempted. Much has been written as to 'how' the Egyptians might have aligned their monuments with such high precision, but the question that has always remained unanswered is 'why?'- why did the ancients put so much emphasis on astronomical alignments? And what could be the function, practical or symbolic, behind these mysterious alignments
From the pyramids in the north to the temples in the south, ancient artisans left their marks all over Egypt, unique marks that reveal craftsmanship we would be hard pressed to duplicate today. Drawing together the results of more than 30 years of research and nine field study journeys to Egypt, Christopher Dunn presents a stunning stone-by-stone analysis of key Egyptian monuments, including the statue of Ramses II at Luxor and the fallen crowns that lay at its feet. His modern-day engineering expertise provides a unique view into the sophisticated technology used to create these famous monuments in prehistoric times. Using modern digital phootography, computer-aided design software and metrology instruments, Dunn exposes the extreme precision of these monuments and the type of advanced manufacturing expertise necessary to produce them. His computer analysis of the statues of Ramses II reveals that the left and right sides of the faces are precise mirror images of each other and his examination of the mysterious underground tunnels of the Serapeum illuminates the finest examples of precision engineering on the planet. Providing never-before-seen evidence in the form of more than 280 photographs, Dunn's research shows that while absent from the archaeological record, highly refined tools, techniques and even mega-machines must have been used in ancient Egypt
Popular Lost Cities author David Childress opens the door to the amazing world of ancient technology, from the computers of the ancient world to the 'flying machines of the gods.' Technology of the Gods explores the technology that was allegedly used in Atlantis and the theory that the Great Pyramid of Egypt was originally a gigantic power station. Childress also uncovers many other mysteries, including: *the technology of ancient flight *how the ancients used electricity *megalithic building techniques *the use of crystal lenses and the fire from the gods *ancient evidence of high-tech weapons, including atomic weapons *the role of modern innventors, such as Nikola Tesla, in bringing ancient technology into modern use *impossible artifacts, and more, much more. Childress has done it again! From beginning to end, Technology of the Gods is filled with facts, keen observations and tales that challenge modern assumptions in a humorous, intelligent and compelling way that is quintessential Childress
The legendary lost continent comes under the close scrutiny of maverick archaeologist David Hatcher Childress in this sixth book in the internationally popular Lost Cities series. Childress takes the reader in search of sunken cities in the Mediterranean; across the Atlas Mountains in search of Atlantean ruins; to remote islands in search of megalithic ruins; to meet living legends and secret societies. From Ireland to Turkey, Morocco to Eastern Europe, and from Malta to the remote islands of the Mediterranean and Atlantic, Childress takes the reader on an astonishing quest for mankind's past. Ancient technology, cataclysms, megalithic constrruction, lost civilizations and devastating wars of the past are all explored in this book. Childress challenges the skeptics and proves that great civilizations not only existed in the past, but the modern world and its problems are reflections of the ancient world of Atlantis

Was our planet visited by alien astronauts in prehistory? Did it suffer collisions with a comet or asteroid? Do ancient myths and tales describe these visits and disasters in graphic detail?
This is an exploration of "hidden history", an area of enquiry that continues to fascinate an ever wider audience. In this massive compendium, editor Preston Peet brings together an all-star cast of contributors to question established wisdom about the history of the world and its civilisations. Peet andd contributors such as Erich von Daniken, Graham Hancock, David Hatcher-Childress and Frank Joseph, guide us through exciting archaeological adventures and treasure hunts, ancient mysteries, lost or rediscovered technologies all of which defy conventional explanations.
Featuring serious scientific reports, scholarly studies and so-called fringe research, THE DISINFORMATION GUIDE TO ANCIENT ALIENS, LOST CIVILIZATIONS, ASTONISHING ARCHAEOLOGY AND HIDDEN HISTORY will change our understanding of where and how did our "modern" civilisation really begin
