Quest for the Lost CivilizationBook - 1998
In very different parts of the world, evidence exists of a common legacy -- shared by cultures separated by hundreds, sometimes thousands of years. From Mexico to Iceland, Cambodia to Easter Island, China to Egypt, we are finding a common astronomical wisdom handed down from a time before history. The evidence includes diverse examples of megalithic architecture, which incorporate precise and sophisticated geometry and are positioned according to astronomical alignments and symbolism. Heaven's Mirrorhas been written and photographed to offer unique insights into the mystery and meaning of ancient "stellar cities" such as Teotihuacan, Uxmal and Chichen Itza in Mexico, Giza-Heliopolis in Egypt, Angkor Wat in Southeast Asia, and Tiahuanaco in Bolivia.
