Product description

Amazon Review

The last few years have seen literally dozens of books challenging our beliefs about history and archaeology, each of them seeking to show that the past was quite different from what standard books tell us.

With Uriel's Machine, Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas move away from their previous books about the Knights Templar, Freemasons and the strange chapel at Rosslyn in Scotland, and turn their attention instead to the much more distant past.

The authors believe that Earth was hit by a comet in 7640 BC, and by another one in 3150 BC, each time resulting in great devastation. From their study of Stone Age monuments around Britain, and of the non-Biblical Book of Enoch, they conclude that Enoch visited Britain some time before 3150 BC to learn how to construct a megalithic celestial calculator which, amongst other things, could be used to forecast the arrival of comets.

In the end, of course, there can be no absolute proof of this or any other rewriting of history--or indeed of more orthodox versions of history. Knight and Lomas's conclusions are controversial, but that in itself is no bad thing. Existing paradigms in every discipline should be challenged, and this is what they are doing. --David V Barrett --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

"A Plausible explanation of how prehistoric societies could have developed astronomical observatories such as Stonehenge for practical reasons" (Sunday Times)

"The book is superb... the insights that it opens in a series of varied fields, tying them in logically to each other, is very lucid" (Howie Firth, Director of the Orkney Science Festival)
