“Like its successful predecessor Lost Knowledge of the Ancients, this lively anthology showcases cutting edge research across a spectrum of disciplines — all devoted in one way or another to the quest for Ancient Wisdom.”
“Other equally insightful and resourceful contributors take us down the illuminating pathways of shamanism, Vedic literature and traditions of India, the modern mystery of black holes, the search for Atlantis, the origins and connections of Mithraism, Gnosticism, and Christianity, the ancient serpent/dragon mythology and a possible connection with the star constellation of Draco—plus much, much more. Loaded with thought-provoking information, illustrations and photographs (some in color!), this should be a welcome addition to the library shelf of any alternative minded reader.”
“Reading this brilliant collection of essays is like watching history fall into a whole new context before my eyes. Insightful work all in one place!”
“The contributions are from some of the cutting-edge thinkers of today, guiding us to new realms of understanding ourselves, the world around us, and where we came from.”

Mysteries of the Ancient Past, Glenn Kreisberg, Inner Traditions, 2012, $18
Mysteries of the Ancient Past is labeled as a Graham Hancock reader. Hancock is a British writer who specializes in unconventional theories involving ancient civilizations, stone monuments or megaliths, altered states of consciousness, ancient myths and astronomical/astrological data from the past. One of the main themes running through many of his books is the possible global connection with a "mother culture" from which he believes all ancient historical civilizations sprang. Glenn Kreisberg is the editor of this collection of 17 articles on a wide range of topics, all with themes similar to Hancock’s unusual writing. One fascinating article, “The Case for the Daemon,” speculates that one of our two brain hemispheres is actually an independent being (a higher self that watches over the lower self). A fascinating read.
