Publisher's Summary

Popular Lost Cities author David Hatcher Childress takes us into the amazing world of ancient technology, from computers in antiquity to the flying machines of the gods. Childress looks at the technology that was allegedly used in Atlantis and the theory that the Great Pyramid of Egypt was originally a gigantic power station.

He examines tales of ancient flight and the technology that it involved; how the ancients used electricity; megalithic building techniques; the use of crystal lenses and the fire from the gods; evidence of various high tech weapons in the past, including atomic weapons; ancient metallurgy and heavy machinery; the role of modern inventors such as Nikola Tesla in bringing ancient technology back into modern use; impossible artifacts; and more.

Very insightful

This book is an eye opener into the past... I would recommend this read to those that are very curious about our ancient world history. You need to be extremely open minded in other to appreciate this book. A lot of unanswered questions concerning the origins of all the wonders and megaliths of the world can be answered or partially answered here.

a conglomeration of conflicting stories

that was the point of me reading this book in the first place to get a different perspective a collective conglomeration of ancient stories and amazing engineering defeats of the past. still I'm left wanting. the book was very satisfied but might be a little drive for some readers.

Good Cyclical History of Ancient Technology

This book summed up a portion of Ancient Technology that is very interesting. Most I was aware of and some was new to me. I appreciated the insight of the author and research done.

Exelent

An open minded view of the mysteries (and conspiracies) of ancient history. Considering the most controversial rather than the most sensational. 5*
