Publisher's Summary

The first official companion book to History® network's hit series Ancient Aliens®: a powerful journey through human history that explores fascinating unanswered questions about the origins of our civilizations. With a foreword by series creator Kevin Burns.

Millions of people around the world believe we have been visited in the past by extraterrestrial beings. What if it were true? And if so, what if there were clues left behind? Each week hundreds of thousands of viewers tune in to the wildly popular Ancient Aliens® television series to seek insight into those very questions - and to become part of a thrilling, probing exploration of the mysteries at the heart of world civilizations.

The first official companion book to the hit show Ancient Aliens® takes listeners even deeper into the mysteries that have made the show a pop culture phenomenon. Filled with exciting insights and behind-the-scenes stories from the show's creators and leading experts in ancient alien theory, the book explores the key questions at the heart of the series:

  • Who were they?
  • Why did they come?
  • What did they leave behind?
  • Where did they go?
  • Will they return?

Transporting listeners around the globe, Ancient Aliens® explores the fascinating enigmas and mysterious artifacts our ancestors left behind, from incredible objects to amazingly accurate ancient maps; from the Great Pyramid of Giza and stone megaliths at Gobekli Tepe to the Nazca Plains and mysterious structures of Puma Punku.

Both the ultimate fan book and the perfect gift for listeners new to the show, Ancient Aliens® is a compelling journey through the mysteries of our ancient civilizations and the possibility of alien influence on our cultures.

worth your time

No struggling to get through this. If you like the series, great companion. Authors get more time to than the show. Essential if you watch the show.

If You Like The Show...

Would you try another book from The Producers of Ancient Aliens and/or the narrators?

Probably yes. It was a lot like the television show of the same name. Interesting concepts are discussed.

Would you recommend Ancient Aliens to your friends? Why or why not?

If they liked the show, yes, absolutely. If they did not know about the Ancient Astronaut theory, then also probably yes. This is a good starting point covering some of the best talking points.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

Several narrators, all good. Some were the researchers themselves and those that were not present were read by the like of Bill Mumy and Angela Cartwright (two points for the Science fiction geeks out there)

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

I watch the show - so same thing there. I did go see Chariots Of The Gods? back in the 70's and that covered a lot of the same ground.

Any additional comments?

A fun and thought provoking listen. It tends to not go as far afield as the show does and sticks to the core concepts and benefits from doing so.
