Overview

In what can only be described as one of the most important archaeological and sociological discoveries in human history, The Cydonia Codex offers overwhelming evidence of aesthetic and symbolic design on the surface of the planet Mars. The authors' research encompasses over ten years of study and analysis of NASA photographs of the "Face on Mars" and its surrounding complex. Beginning with the famous 1976 photograph of a mile-long formation found on the surface of Mars that strongly resembles a human face, Haas and Saunders offer side-by-side comparisons of the art and sculpture of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica with a set of corresponding geoglyphic structures found in the Cydonia region of Mars. The implication is staggering--Earth's history and humankind's origins could be very different than commonly believed. Includes black and white photos throughout, as well as illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I applaud the authors' cross-cultural approach to investigating possible Martian archaeological sites. By suggesting that a priror technological civilization might have been driven by aesthetic agenda, The Cydonia Codex offers a new arena for speculation--which is precisely what's needed to further the investigative process."
-Mac Tonnies, author of After the Martian Apocalypse: Extraterrestrial Artifacts and the Case for Mars Exploration

"This book gives unique insight into the many questions surrounding man's origins and in my mind establishes stunning evidence for a direct connection between us and a forgotten culture found on the planet Mars."
-Jim Miller, founder of the Mars research group Anomaly Hunters

"The authors have obviously done a great deal of research not only into the Martian structures but also into ancient Mesoamerican and other cultures and have shown how the images from Mars are repeated in the religious and cultural artifacts from those ancient civilizations. The information is well laid out and overall an excellent informative work."
-Shane Bowden, geologist in Alberta, Canada
