Graham Bruce Hancock is a British writer and journalist born in Edinburgh, Scotland. Hancock spent his formative years in India, where his father worked as a surgeon. Having returned to the UK, he graduated from Durham University in 1973, receiving a First Class Honours degree in sociology. As a journalist, Hancock worked for many British papers, such as The Times, The Sunday Times, The Independent, and The Guardian. He co-edited New Internationalist magazine from 1976 to 1979 and served as the East Africa correspondent of The Economist from 1981 to 1983. Graham Hancock's multi-million bestseller Fingerprints of the Gods, first published in 1995, remains an astonishing, deeply controversial, wide-ranging investigation of the mysteries of our past and the evidence for Earth's lost civilization. Magicians of the Gods: The Forgotten Wisdom of Earth's Lost Civilisation is a sequel to this bestseller. In it, Hancock seeks an explanation for the catastrophe in the controversial Younger Dryas impact hypothesis, suggesting that around 10,800 BC the earth was struck by the fragments of a large comet, causing widespread destruction, climate change, and sea level rise. The author argues that this caused widespread destruction, with a short-term return to Ice Age conditions followed by massive flooding that altered the continental landscape. Specifically, he claims that coastal civilisations in and around the Atlantic Ocean, Southeast Asia and the Pacific Ocean were destroyed by rising sea levels.
