In Journeys to the Mythical Past, the sequel to The Earth Chronicles Expeditions, the renowned researcher of antiquity Zecharia Sitchin tells his own story of an indefatigable dedication to finding the truth that almost cost him his life--accidentally or otherwise--when uncovering secrets of the Giza pyramids and Sphinx. Exposing hidden artifacts that contradict establishment assumptions dedicated to preserving the status quo or that baffle scientists when forced to show them, Sitchin's firsthand accounts of his explorations take the reader into the inner workings of the Vatican, the enigma of a futuristic computer from millennia ago, and the secret handiwork of a Divine Architect at Stonehenge, at Malta, and at a site in the Americas. Looking deep into antiquity, Sitchin offers astounding evidence that links the Nazca lines and a baffling adjoining site to the Departure from Earth of the Anunnaki, the ancient gods who, he believes, vowed to Return.
Zecharia Sitchin (1920-2010), born in Russia and raised in Palestine, had a comprehensive knowledge of modern and ancient Hebrew and other Semitic and European languages, the Old Testament, and the history, archaeology, and culture of the Near East. He was distinguished by his ability to read and translate Sumerian and other ancient texts. A journalist and editor in Israel for many years, he later made his home in New York City.
