Did a comet wipe out a highly advanced human civilisation in Antarctica, thousands of years before the invention of the wheel?
Author Graham Hancock claims to have found a ‘smoking gun’ which proves a highly advanced civilisation existed in Antarctica 13,000 years ago.
Hancock claims that our knowledge of astronomy and mathematics comes from this ‘lost’ civilisation.
Hancock’s book Fingerprints of the Gods sold three million copies in 1995.
He told The Sunday Times, ‘But what I lacked was a smoking gun. Now we have it.
‘A series of papers in geophysics and geological journals have been bringing forward evidence that the Earth was indeed hit by a comet 12,800 years ago, which is exactly what I proposed in my book.’
His new book, Magicians of the Gods, will be published in September.
