Mostly Credited As: Graham Hancock
Birth Name: Graham Hancock
Date Of Birth: August 05, 1950 (Age 64)
Country Of Birth: United Kingdom
Birth Place: Edinburgh, Scotland
Author of several books including, “Fingerprints of the Gods”, “Lords of Poverty”, “The Sign and the Seal”, “Keeper of Genesis” & his most recent “Supernatural: Meetings with the Ancient Teachers of Mankind”
Hancock worked for many British papers, such as The Times, The Sunday Times, The Independent, and The Guardian. He was co-editor of New Internationalist magazine from 1976–1979 and East Africa correspondent of The Economist from 1981-1983. In 1996 he appeared in The Mysterious Origins of Man.
Hancock's chief areas of interest are ancient mysteries, 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.
Although his books have sold more than five million copies worldwide and have been translated into twenty-seven languages, his methods and conclusions have found little support among academics.
Often criticized for being a pseudo-archaeologist, Hancock, who freely admits he has no formal training in archeology, sees himself as providing a counterbalance to what he perceives as the "unquestioned" acceptance and support given to orthodox views by the education system, the media, and by society at large.
