In Heaven's Mirror, author Graham Hancock continues the quest begun in his international best-seller Fingerprints of the Gods to rediscover the hidden legacy of mankind--the revelation that the cultures we refer to as ancient were, in fact, the heirs to a far older forgotten civilization and the inheritors of its archaic, mystical wisdom.
Working with photographer Santha Faiia, Hancock traces a network of sacred sites around the globe on a spectacular voyage of discovery that takes us from the pyramids and temples of ancient Egypt to the enigmatic statues of Easter Island, from the haunting ruins of pre-Columbian America to the splendors of Angkor Wat, in order to crack the code of our lost ancestors. It is an odyssey that leads to sunken monuments and hidden chambers--a journey through myth and magic, and astounding archaeological revelations, that forces us to rethink our entire conception of the origins of civilization.
The first fully illustrated book by Graham Hancock, Heaven's Mirror is a stunning and illuminating tour into the spirituality of the ancients--a search for a secret written in the language of astronomy and recorded in the very foundations of the holiest sites of antiquity:
A secret that speaks of a mysterious connection between earth and heaven.
A secret that transforms temples into stars and men into gods.
The deepest and darkest secret of our forgotten past.
What would these fifteen gigantic Moai on Easter Island say if they could speak?
The only voice left to these statues and other ancient monoliths is that of the astronomical alignments that govern them. These alignments point to a common link, reveal a shockingly sophisticated understanding of the solar system, and perhaps even encompass the Holy Grail of immortality.
