Review

Black Genesis offers astounding new insights as Bauval and Brophy forcefully support, with hard data, the radical idea that Egyptian civilization was the outgrowth of a sophisticated Black African culture that existed thousands of years prior to the earliest known pharaohs. Their book is a must read for anyone interested in genuinely understanding the true origins of ancient Egypt and the dynamics of how civilizations develop.” (Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D., author of Voyages of the Pyramid Builders and Pyramid Quest)

“Readers of Black Genesis will never think of ancient Egypt in the same way again. Bauval and Brophy make the case that this venerable civilization was originated by Black Africans from the Sahara Desert and that the pyramids, the statues, and the hieroglyphs were the result of their knowledge and ingenuity. The authors trace the series of errors and misjudgments that have obscured the origins of this remarkable civilization. It is time for the record to be set straight, and Black Genesis is the book that may well do it. This is an authoritative, excellent, well-written book.” (Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., professor of psychology at Saybrook University and coauthor of Personal Myt)

“In Black Genesis, Bauval and Brophy combined their investigative skills to answer an obvious but often-neglected question, “Who were the ancient Egyptians?” With new astroarchaeological evidence they build a strong case for “The African origin of the pharaohs” and have dramatically altered our understanding of the past.” (Anthony T. Browder, author and independent Egyptologist)

“Extremely dense and possibly groundbreaking, Bauval and Brophy make an honest case for a “very different story of the origins of ancient Egypt.” Their scholarship is meticulous . . .” (Publishers Weekly, June 2011)

“. . . packed with revelations!” (Midwest Book Review, July 2011)

“The tales of the authors’ 2008 expedition and of explorers in the past century add to the enticing read.” (Nexus Magazine, August 2011)

“Recommended.” (R. Fritze, Athens State University, Choice Reviews Online, October 2011)

“Both authors are highly accredited researchers who have provided an incredibly detailed book examining the connection between the astronomy of the pharaohs and their Neolithic counterparts.” (Fate Magazine, October 2011)

Black Genesis is a captivating, thought-provoking, utterly intriguing read that traces back the origins of the high civilization of ancient Egypt into deepest prehistory. Buckle your seatbelts for a rollercoaster ride . . .” (Graham Hancock, author of Fingerprints of the Gods)

From the Back Cover

ANCIENT MYSTERIES / EGYPT "Black Genesis is a captivating, thought-provoking, utterly intriguing read that traces back the origins of the high civilization of ancient Egypt into deepest prehistory. Buckle your seatbelts for a rollercoaster ride . . ." --Graham Hancock, author of Fingerprints of the Gods Relegated to the realm of archaeological heresy, despite a wealth of hard scientific evidence, the theory that an advanced civilization of Black Africans settled in the Sahara long before Pharaonic Egypt existed has been dismissed and even condemned by conventional Egyptologists, archaeologists, and the Egyptian government. Uncovering compelling new evidence, Egyptologist Robert Bauval and astrophysicist Thomas Brophy present the anthropological, climatological, archaeological, geological, and genetic research supporting this hugely debated theory of the Black African origin of Egyptian civilization. Building upon extensive studies from the past four decades and their own archaeoastronomical and hieroglyphic research, the authors show how the early Black culture known as the cattle people not only domesticated cattle but also had a sophisticated grasp of astronomy; created plentiful rock art at Gilf Kebir and Jebel Uwainat; had trade routes to the Mediterranean coast, central Africa, and the Sinai; held spiritual and occult ceremonies; and constructed a stone Calendar Circle and megaliths at the ceremonial site of Nabta Playa reminiscent of Stonehenge, yet much older. Revealing these "star people" as the true founders of ancient Egyptian civilization, this book completely rewrites the history of world civilization, placing Black Africa back in its rightful place at the center of mankind's origins. Egyptian-born ROBERT BAUVAL began studying Egyptology in 1983. His first book, The Orion Mystery, was published in 1994, becoming a number-one bestseller translated into more than 25 languages. His research has been featured in documentaries throughout the world. He lives in Torremolinos, Spain. THOMAS BROPHY, Ph.D., is an astrophysicist who has worked with NASA, including as a member of the Voyager II spacecraft instrument teams. The author of several books, including The Origin Map, and numerous published articles in scientific journals, he lives in Encinitas, California.
