Graham Hancock, the controversial author, has found more evidence to support his claim of the lost civilization which was destroyed by a comet 13,000 years ago.
Hancock is releasing his latest work, titled ‘Magicians of the Gods’, containing series of geophysics and geological papers that prove his stance. Hancock argues that the existence of the comet has been masked because it struck ice and did not leave a crater.
