ABOUT THE SERIES Seeds of Civilization novels are loosely based on the theories of Graham Hancock and others who believe that highly developed civilizations existed on Earth thousands of years before the time currently put forth by mainstream Anthropology.
The series accepts Hancocks theories, in principal, but goes on to explore the questions of how and where these ancient civilizations might have acquired their advanced knowledge of mathematics, astronomy and architecture. For example, why were the Maya of Mexicos Yucatan Peninsula able to predict the exact time of a solar eclipse more than 500 years before the advanced thinkers of Europe discovered that the Earth isnt actually flat?
If Hancocks theory is correctthat an advanced civilization existed on Earth 9,000 years agoone has to wonder whether there were even earlier civilizations, each lost to some global cataclysmic event. What if the Mesopotamians werent really Earths first civilization but merely the sprout from a recently planted Seed?
