Product Description

The history of Neanderthal influence from Atlantis to the contemporary era - Provides evidence of Neanderthal man's superior intelligence - Explores the unexplained scientific and architectural feats of ancient civilizations - Presents an alternative history of humankind since 7500 B.C. with an emphasis on esoteric traditions and the history of Christianity from the Essenes onward In "Atlantis and the Kingdom of the Neanderthals" Colin Wilson presents evidence of a widespread Neanderthal civilization as the origin of sophisticated ancient knowledge. Examining remarkable archaeological discoveries that date back millennia, he suggests that civilization on Earth is far older than we have previously realized. Using this information as a springboard, Wilson then fills in the gaps in the past 100,000 years of human history, providing answers to previously unexplained scientific and architectural feats of ancient civilizations. Wilson shows that not only did Atlantis exist but that the civilizing force behind it was the Neanderthals. Far from being the violent brutes they are traditionally depicted as, Wilson shows that the Neanderthals had sophisticated mathematical and astrological knowledge, including an understanding of the precession of the equinoxes, and that they possessed advanced telepathic abilities akin to the "group consciousness" evident in flocks of birds and schools of fish. These abilities, he demonstrates, have been transmitted through the ages by the various keepers of the hermetic tradition--including the Templars, Freemasons, and other secret societies. In the course of his investigation, Wilson also finds new information about historical links between the Masonic tradition and the Essenes that indicate that America was "discovered" long before Columbus set sail and that Jesus actually survived crucifixion and fled to France with his wife Mary Magdalene.

Format: Paperback
This is a hard review to write. Did I enjoy reading Atlantis and the Kingdom of the Neanderthals? Absolutely, without a doubt. Did I feel that the author made a good case for a connection between Atlantis and Neanderthals? No, not really. He never really got to that part in any real depth.

I started reading Atlantis and the Kingdom of the Neanderthals with great interest and enthusiasm. The author discussed the concepts that in the past our continental plates have shifted and that the earth's tilt has also changed. These are scientific facts that most people learn in high school. I was eager to see an examination of this movement as relates to Antarctica, how the author would place Neanderthals on Antarctica, how he would connect the two.

Unfortunately, the book quickly evolved in an attempt to present as much information as possible about every ancient mystery know to man: the pyramids of the Piri Reis map, Egypt, Mu, the Biblical floods, the man in the iron mask, the death of Jesus, and the Priory of Sion. Information about these topics ranged from scientific reports and solid data collection methodology to popular ancient mystery books and PBS specials to hearsay and theories by author friends.

My best advice is that you don't pick up this book because you wish to find out the connection between Atlantis and Neanderthals. Instead, pick up this book because it is full of interesting theories, summaries of information collected about a number of ancient mysteries, and contains a really great bibliography of like minded material.

Format: Paperback
Like other reviewers I barely know where to start with this review; the book left me a little puzzled.

It starts off well enough, summarising Hapgood et all and the theories & evidence of ancient civilisations - all goood stuff but nothing new really.

Wilson then starts to meander off topic and heads into the Rennes-le-Chateau saga (to my mind this was put to bed when exposed as a hoax some years ago) and the divinity or otherwise of Jesus. admittedly there is a link at the end of this section - the hypothesis that ancient man recognised and utilised a "mystic landscape". This may or may not be so, but I felt the author wasted far too many pages on these subjects to support an idea that they actually have little (if anything) to do with.

The idea of "primal vision" is an interesting one, but unoriginal and unfortunately Wilson adds nothing new to the mix - although useful to those unfamiliar with the subject.

The biggest puzzle for me was that this book utterly failed to address it's title - no real explanation or exploration of Atlantis with the Neanderthals, bar a threadbare chapter towards the end that - again - offers little new information.

Overall this book is an interesting (if somewhat rambling) introduction to alternative prehistory, but those well read on the subject will find little of interest.

The books one redeeming feature though, is it's extensive bibliography via the author's notes.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I ordered this book after reading Colin Wilson's article '100,000 year old civilisation' in Fortean Times number 272 and Stan Gooch's 'a doubly divided self' in the same magazine which had piqued my interest, especially Wilson's tale of a mysterious scientist that had to be written out of 'Atlantis Blueprint' which Wilson co-wrote. I was hoping this book would expand on it and although it's mentioned in a different context it's not. It did give me a broad brush stoke intro to the many subjects covered; I now have a plentiful supply of springboards to jump off, for further research. Wilson's style is easy reading and engaging so I finished it quickly. His research is pulling together numerous normally unassociated scientists from multi-disciplines to put his case. He starts with the aim of unravelling the mystery set by Charles Hapgood'...that there must have been intelligent life before the history of man as we have been told because there is too much evidence being ignored. He covers Ancient civilisations, Egypt, Maya and evidence of ancient technology, Brown's gas, etc and perhaps more importantly challenges perceptions of past and present native peoples being primitive as incorrect. This is good as is his ending with Shamanic perceptions of the World, anthropological discoveries and Stan Gooch's work. Like the 1 star reviewer I do not see why we yet again had to re-do such a basic look at Templars, Priory of Sion & Rennes-le-Chateau as it doesn't seem to fit (and for me casts a slight shadow on the rest depending on your view of this matter)although the history of Christianity does fit in, challenging perceptions. In all its a ripping good read and highly enjoyable, so go ahead and decide for yourself..... Is the World exactly as we've been told or is it quite different?

Format: Paperback
I cannot agree this book merits one star. It merits five.

The book is brilliant, if you have taken the time to study all the materials you need to understand this book, and that will probably be at least ten years of very hard work. But in the end, all that work is worth it.

This book is not for the casual reader, and one who has not exposed himself or herself to most of the literature he cites in the work, and understands that literature will not come within a trillion light years of understanding it. If you do not do all that work, you are going to dismiss this book with one star, or less, if you can get the page to take no stars.

P.S. Even though my review only shows 4 stars, I really tried to give it 5 stars. Something is not working right on this page. It is a 5-star book!
