On an astounding odyssey of the world's oldest and most sacred sites, from the pyramids of ancient Egypt to the enigmatic statues of Easter Island, from the haunting ruins of South American cities to the beauty of Angkor Wat, Graham Hancock puts forward compelling evidence to show that the cultures we term ancient were in fact the heirs to an older lost civilisation, and the inheritors of it archaic wisdom.
Heaven's Mirror re-examines the significance of the precise astronomical patterns of the great ancient sites and asks why monuments, such as those at Giza and Angkor, mirror whole constellations on the ground. It draws inescapable conclusions about the world before known history began, and it reveals the existence of an ancient cult which may hold the secret of immortality.
'A journey through myth and magic that forces us to rethink our conception of the origins of our civilization and our spirituality.'
