Présentation de l'éditeur

Some scholars have long claimed that a world civilization existed thousands of years ago - long before Egypt. They have even claimed that this lost civilization was almost as advanced as ours today.

In this book, Professor Charles H. Hapgood has produced the first concrete evidence of the existence of such a civilization. He has found the evidence in many beautiful maps long known to scholars, the so-called Portolano charts of the Middle Ages, and in other maps until now thought to have originated around the time of Columbus. Working with his students over a period of seven years, Hapgood has discovered evidence that many of these maps must have originated in a civilization in some ways much more advanced scientifically than Europe in the 16th Century, or than the ancient civilizations of Greece, Egypt, and Babylonia.

Not only were these unknown people more advanced in mapmaking than any people prior to the 18th Century, it appears that they mapped all the continents. The Americas were mapped thousands of years before Columbus. Antarctica was mapped when its coasts were still free of ice. There is evidence that these people must have lived when the ice age had not yet ended in the Northern Hemisphere and when Alaska was still connected with Siberia by the Pleistocene, ice age 'land bridge.'

In this book, Hapgood has not merely modified our ideas about ancient history, but his work will necessitate a widespread revolution in our concepts about the whole history of man, the history of his science, and the evolution of human culture. Hapgood shows that man's evolution from brute to citizen of the world spans a longer time than we have ever supposed.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Can you say spherical geometry? 25 avril 2007
Par bernie
Format:Relié
This book is worth keeping for the pictures alone. At least my copies have color and do look like coffee table books. I do not want to argue valideties. That is up to the author. But there is no other book that really covers the Piri Reis map. It seems to have disappeared form the Internet. I have been able to find a few other references now and then like other people mentioning that fact that Columbus did have a map case of sorts.

The story goes that the crew was not afraid if falling off the end of the earth but that Columbus was a poor navigator. All this flat earth stuff is much later than Columbus. The map he had was a composite and he missed his landing point. However no one else is as enthusiastic as Charles H. Hapgood is. As far as who got to the west first, it seems that anyone falling in the water would turn up here. So what is the big deal? The deal is that maps such as these are the tangible proof that others have done so.

As far as the secondary proofs as building styles, any 101 architecture class will tell you that with similar building material you get similar structures. The one information that is hard to dismiss is the artic coast line accuracy.

People may agree or disagree with conclusions drawn but the five star rating is for an excellent presentation and making people think.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Des cartes extraordinaires 1 novembre 2010
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Livre stupéfiant, d''autant qu'il est très sérieusement documenté et charpenté. Hapgood y présente notamment une carte dressée en 1513, par Piri Reis, amiral de la flotte turque, et qui montre une partie du continent Antarctique (qui a été découvert seulement en 1800 et quelques) ! Parmi d''autres cartes un peu postérieures -les fameux 'portulans'- Hapgood en présente quelques autres, tout aussi extraordinaires, telle celle d''Oronteus Finaeus, de 1531, qui -comble- montre l''Antarctique telle qu'elle était avant d'être recouverte par les glaces, c''est à dire il y a au moins quelques milliers d''années, ou celle de Hadji Ahmed, datée de 1559, qui comporte entre autres un tracé quasi parfait de la côte ouest des Etats-Unis. Ces cartes et leurs projections sont analysées très soigneusement mais on peut regretter que l'auteur ne semble pas avoir effectué une recherche aussi approfondie sur le problème de leur authenticité et de leurs sources. Cette critique est cependant a tempérer par le fait que, vue la complexité de ces cartes, des faux non évidents semblent difficiles à concevoir. Hapgood, en tout cas, se garde de se prononcer quant à l'origine de ces étonnantes connaissances géographiques, bien antérieures aux explorations que nous connaissons.

Format:Broché
Que dire ? On ne peut en parler si on n'a pris connaissance de ce dont il est question. Les faits sont là; reste à expliquer leur origine.
L'auteur commente des études sérieuses portant sur des éléments bien tangibles qu'il est passionnant de découvrir. Il se garde bien -et a raison de ne rien en faire- de conclure, car qui le peut ?
A lire !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A credible map of Antartica in the 16th Century 30 mai 1998
Par Lamour712@aol.com - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
"Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings", Hapgood. I read this book when it was first published...must have been 30 years ago. What I remember most was an ancient map of tne continent of Antartica, published in 1509, but with an outline amazingly close to what the continent was recently shown to be late in the 20th Century. The map was published by a French cartographer who had no notion of Antartica. In addition to its inexplicable similarity to the Antartica that we know, the margins of the continent are shown to be free of ice, and across this landscape rivers flowing from the frozen center down to the sea. It has always been assumed, I imagine, that Antartica has been covered with its two mile thick ice sheet for millions of years. But last year Discovery magazine reported that a scientist, working in Antartica claimed to have evidence that the southernmost continent had been partially ice free in recent times, recent meaning sometime in the Pleistocene. There is also in this unusual book a strange map of Europe as it might have been seen during the last Ice Age from a vantage point somewhere in space. In this map, also produced in the early 16th Century, the sun is shown glinting off the ice cap that covers all the northern European countries. Since the 16th Century knew nothing of ice ages, you can't help but wonder who was around, say twenty five thousand years ago with the technology and the desire to make maps whose accuracy would not be duplicated again until our own age. Along this line, who was around, a few years ago an English engineer wrote a book called, "The history of Metrology", which is the study of measuring things. In his research through the old world, he discovered that some of these ancient peoples, the Greeks, the Romans, the Assyrians, for instance, used a measure of length that was a geo-physical reality, like our nautical mile. In other words, these ancient units of length were a segment of a mean circumference of the earth, or a segment of a "! ;greater circle" and not an arbitrary measure "from the king's nose to the king's finger". Since all these people had to be unaware that their unit of length had a special geographical significance, the author of the book assumed that they had inherited their systems from some unknown culture in the distant past. Again, who? It's a thought provoking book, "Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings". Were there some technologically sophisticated people around at a time when other men were painting horses on cave walls?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Scholarly and Challenging 29 juin 2001
Par John D. Cofield - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Charles Hapgood's Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings is a much needed scholarly examination of the large number of maps dating from the Renaissance period which seem to show an ice-free Antarctica and accurate depictions of areas thought to have been unknown at the time the maps were drawn. Since the maps in question were based on older maps which are now lost, the inevitable question is: How in the world could they have been created? Hapgood does not draw fantastic conclusions about ancient astronauts or magical powers, he simply sets forth compelling evidence that civilization is far older than orthodox science thinks. His work deserves to be taken seriously,not ignored.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Well Worth the Read 30 décembre 2000
Par Robert Napier - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
At first reading Charles Hapgood makes a good argument for a crustal shift theory 10,000 years ago. Certainly, something must have happened at that time, to cause such a sudden end to the, so called, ice age. This book is well written and well thought out, if one does not accept geologist findings concerning the Antarctica, although it would not be the first time science was wrong.
The most interesting aspect, to me, about these, so called, ancient maps, is the idea that they were reported to be drawn up before Columbus sailed to the Western Hemisphere. This would seem to point toward a more advanced civilization in the past than we thought existed, and a civilization that had ventured out to the Western Hemisphere long before Columbus.
The fact that the oldest and largest stone megalith constructions are in South America (Peru), seems odd, considering mankind, it is believed, crossed into North America 10,000 years ago, and, according to archaeological thinking, waited till they reached Peru, around 1,000 AD, to move 300 plus ton stones around. Hapgood's theory about ancient maps could be a possible explanation for how a civilization arrived in South America well before Columbus, perhaps 10,000 years ago. The megaliths of the Western World seem to be a thorn in the side of scientific theories, but by placing them in the civilizations which they were found, most megalith structures are explained away, which I find more convenient than scientific, but, with free thinkers, such as, Charles Hapgood, Graham Hancock, Robert Schoch, Eric Von Danyken (yes even Danyken) and many others on the sleuth, maybe an explanation is near. The search for past advanced civilizations is very exciting, and those engaged in that search should be commended not condemned. After all, anyone willing to believe the Egyptian people of 2500 BC built the Great Pyramids, albeit, on the slimmest of evidence, should be willing to accept a past advanced civilization theory, even if that idea is also on the slimmest of evidence, if it is, it is only because such evidence has greatly been ignored at the university and scientific levels.
Placing such theories, as Hapgood's and Graham's, and the many others, in our school's textbooks, could make our educational institutions a more exciting and competitive atmosphere. It could launch the next generations on a great scientific quest. God forbid, they might even be induced to learn more.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 essential reading 10 novembre 2005
Par Mark H. Gaffney - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I'd like to dispel an idea that's pretty widespread -- but without foundation. Some of the folks who've read Hapgood's books seem to think he's been disproved, for example, by plate tectonics or maybe ice cores. NOT SO.

Hapgood's book about the ancient maps and his theory of crustal shift remain just as valid and plausible today as when he wrote them. His ideas have not been successfully debunked. It is true that he has been passed over -- and often dismissed. But the reason is not because the maps and his theory of crustal shift have been disproved. They haven't.

In my opinion science has passed over his work because the implications for our civilization are so horrific. It's easy to see why this could be so. Even Hapgood himself didn't want to face the logical conclusion of the wholesale mammoth and mastadon extinction in Siberia and Alaska at the end of the Pleistocene. Something killed those animals by the millions and quick froze them in vast muck beds -- so that ten thousand years later the meat was still edible. This is fact -- not conjecture. But the crunch is the flowers and other temperate zone vegetation found in their mouths. The animals were eating and were killed suddenly where they stood. Hapgood preferred to argue that the crustal shift occurred slowly -- over a thousand years or more. But the evidence suggests that it was a very rapid event -- a cataclysm.

The maps today remain, just as Hapgood claimed -- necessary and sufficient evidence that a high civilization existed on earth long long before Sumer and ancient Egypt. The question is what happened to it?

Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings is essential reading for anyone interested in the untold story of our human origins.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Hapgood"s writing style is dry; his content is fascinating. 18 juin 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Hapgood presents crucial evidence that libraries of ancient Greece and Constantinople held accurate maps of the New World, the west coast of North America, and of the Antarctic prior to the twelfth century. These maps were made with mathematical formulae that were not rediscovered until the 1600s. The clear implication being that someone in the dim past had possessed the knowledge and the ability to accurately map the entire world, not just the ancient "known world." The Antarctic coast is detailed without the current ice covering. Modern technology allows the ice sheet to be penetrated to confirm the accuracy of this ancient map. As the original libraries and their contents were destroyed, the copies of those seminal maps, stored elsewhere, became the primary sources for subsequent sailors and explorers. Many of the maps' details were lost or distorted over time due to repeated copying, but the essence of the original accurate mapping remains to this day.
