Publisher's Summary

Built at the end of the last ice age, the mysterious stone temple complex of Göbekli Tepe in Turkey is one of the greatest challenges to 21st century archaeology. As much as 7,000 years older than the Great Pyramid and Stonehenge, its strange buildings and rings of T-shaped monoliths - built with stones weighing from 10 to 15 tons - show a level of sophistication and artistic achievement unmatched until the rise of the great civilizations of the ancient world, Sumer, Egypt, and Babylon.

Chronicling his travels to Göbekli Tepe and surrounding sites, Andrew Collins details the layout, architecture, and exquisite relief carvings of ice age animals and human forms found at this 12,000-year-old megalithic complex, now recognized as the oldest stone architecture in the world. He explores how it was built as a reaction to a global cataclysm - the Great Flood in the Bible - and explains how it served as a gateway and map to the sky-world, the place of first creation, reached via a bright star in the constellation of Cygnus. He reveals those behind its construction as the Watchers of the Book of Enoch and the Anunnaki gods of Sumerian tradition.

Unveiling Göbekli Tepe's foundational role in the rise of civilization, Collins shows how it is connected to humanity's creation in the Garden of Eden and the secrets Adam passed to his son Seth, the founder of an angelic race called the Sethites. In his search for Adam's legendary Cave of Treasures, the author discovers the Garden of Eden and the remains of the Tree of Life - in the same sacred region where Göbekli Tepe is being uncovered today.

Guaranteed to fill your head... completely!

What a huge amount of information given in this tome. Hang in there for the conclusion. It comes together brilliantly in the second half. I feel better grounded in history on many levels after listening.

Nothing To Do With Gobekli Tepe

This is a ridiculous series of baseless sensational attempts at opinions packaged as fact about....not Gobekli Tepe.... but Eden and it's now uncovered location in Eastern Turkey. Right. I enjoy Collins and tha Ancient Aliens campy versions of history. It's fun sometimes especially when the stories are almost believable. This read is neither fun nor remotely believable. It's a worse than usual slam Christ, Christianity and one God. The true cross came from Eden...Golgotha conceals the skull of Adam...there remains today a lost to time but functioning and attended monastery that has been there since and was part of Eden.

Narration? Hyper intonation and inflection.

Have nothing to do with this non Gobekli Tepe ruse.

very difficult book to follow

Very informative and factual, how ever I felt it went to deep into many other things that were on the fringe of not being involved.

Great research, well presented, fascinating!

If you are into this stuff, this book is a must hear. Well researched and fascinating material. Whether you are a hard core believer of a more ancient history or a new comer I highly reccomend this book.

Fantastic

Middle section (more technical) isn’t well suited to audio format but still a fascinating take on the site I haven’t heard before.
