After nine years investigating the exact location of the ultimate religious icon, the Ark of the Covenant, British researcher and investigative journalist Graham Hancock reveals his status-quo shattering discoveries. Part mystery thriller, part true adventure and part travel book, this gripping piece of historical research challenges society's principal religious preconceptions and takes the reader on a rollercoaster ride through ancient history.

Graham Hancock is the author of the major international bestsellers The Sign and the Seal, Fingerprints of the Gods and Heaven's Mirror. His books have sold more than five million copies worldwide and have been translated into 27 languages. He is an extremely successful investigative journalist, having been Editor of Conde Nast's Traveller magazine and East Africa Correspondent for the Economist. His public lectures and TV appearances, including the three-hour series Quest for the Lost Civilization, have put his religious and historical theories before audiences of tens of millions. He has become recognized as an unconventional thinker who raises legitimate questions about humanity's history, religion and prehistory and offers an increasingly popular challenge to the entrenched views of orthodox scholars.

Customer Reviews

I was really impressed by the amount of research that Graham Hancock had to do in order to build his hypothesis about the legend of Ethiopia as the last resting place of the Ark of the Covenant. More than anything else, the book was a history lesson for me on the early church, the Knights Templar (though it doesn't seem anyone really has a good hold on them), and Ancient Egypt. The bit about Moses as a magician has spurred me to do my own reading on this topic. From the start, the book had a very Indiana Jones feel about it - his style helped to keep my interest and I kept wondering what would happen next. Despite all this, I strongly felt that some of the arguments and deductions that he used to reach his view that the Ark of the Covenant is in Ethiopia to be a bit far fetched. It was not until the very end of the book, when everything came together, that I was able to make my own conclusions on whether I considered this to be true from a purely historical perspective. I'd recommend this book to anyone who was interested in this topic.
