I learnt a few things and I have been keen on the subject for 25 years.
I also bought Silva's Templemaking DVD which I used to make a stone circle. The energetic field off it is impressive

Legacy of the Gods is one of the better books about the topic that I've come across. It is written and explained in easy to read and understand ways, and for visual people - it even includes pictures. I am a bit biased on this whole topic of ancient civilizations, sacred places, and the ancient alien theory though. I am an avid Coast to Coast listener and I've watched all of the Ancient Aliens episodes on the History channel.
Taking my personal thoughts about the topic into consideration though, I've read quite a few books about it. Silva does what few others have done with the topic in Legacy of the Gods and makes it quite relatable to the everyday person reading this book. Nothing covered is very complex, and he ties it all together to give you that "ah-ha" moment numerous times while reading the text.
The sacred locations covered include a large range of places you have probably heard of, such as Stonehenge, Teotihuacan, the pyramids and the Valley of the Kings, and many more. There are also numerous other locations that you will read about that you may have not heard of before. The pictures included in the book are in black and white, but if you want to investigate the locations further, just type in the names in Google and you can see better detailed pictures of the places that pique your interest in color. I have done this with a few of the locations and found remarkable pictures for them in under a minute and also more details about the locations as well. That is one of my favorite things about books such as this - they make you want to research and find out more about these marvelous places too. If I could, I would go to the locations myself for even more of the experience, but for now, I can just do it with more books and internet searches.
If you are a fan of Ancient Aliens on the History channel, this is a book that is a must read. If you aren't a fan, or perhaps never thought about ancient civilizations in this manner before, it could be something that would open your mind and at least challenge your old notions of the "truth" of things. I highly recommend it.
* Thank you to the publisher of Legacy of the Gods, Hampton Roads, for providing me with a copy of this book for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
I have yet to explore many of these locations around the world but thank's to Freddy i have a map. He does offer tours of small groups to some of these locations which would be amazing so check out his website on this.
I personally love to hear the passion and wisdom of these teachers in their own words and found a great lecture of his on youtube using the words 'Freddy Silva prophets conference'. In this wonderful lecture you really get a tip of what this book offers. The thing that really triggered me was as a human with magnetite (if i remember correctly as it has been a while since watching) in our brains that by entering these, he talked about the possible effect on our consciousness awareness 'circuits' by walking though a sacred temple in Egypt that has very subtle positive and negative charges in the pillars which activate the magnetite to expand our consciousness. It just compounds that inner knowing of the amazing wisdom of the ancients and the naivety of where we are today.
I hope you find this helpful in your own exploration of consciousness. Thank you Freddy
