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

I am enjoying this book immensely, as I enjoyed " The Hiram key" by the same authors! Many thanks!
Knight and Lomas do a very interesting job of linking the Book of Enoch to Northern Europe, but then propose that some biblical guy named Enoch was taken there and taught secrets. The obvious idea that many things in the bible came from Northern Europe as in ripped off in the 2nd century during the Maccabbean times, doesn't really seem to have made much impact on their thinking. Too many people are stymied by this: thinking that the Bible can be taken as an "older" tradition than any other. It simply isn't true.
Nevertheless, it is an excellent effort and the interpretation of the astronomical instructions in the Book of Enoch, and its linking to Northern Europe holds up well and is, again, pure genius!
The book is well-written, entertaining, a book well worth reading. Recommended. (I would have given it five stars if it had not been for the fact that Knight and Lomas simply didn't dig deep enough!)
