In his first ebook of the trilogy, Langdon found that this civilisation is understood to archaeologists because the 'megalithic developers' that outfitted and used their stone monuments, hundreds of thousands of years in advance of the specialists at the moment think. This validated medical facts is located in websites like Stonehenge, Avebury and previous Sarum, the place carbon courting has now proven that those websites have been developed approximately 5 thousand years prior to formerly understood, at a time in historical past during which historical Greek writings gave us huge, immense element concerning the panorama and philosophy of this misplaced civilisation.
Dawn of the misplaced Civilisation appears on the anthropology of the developers of those megalithic buildings and by utilizing smooth DNA strategies permits us to track them again to their unique ancestry; tens of hundreds of thousands of years in the past (where they have been conceived) through the biggest enclosed inland physique of water on planet earth - a spot referred to as the Caspian Sea that borders either Europe and Asia. inside this sector, we discover proof that mankind's recommendations should have replaced essentially from the previous, which allowed them to layout an easy floating craft that may turn into arguably mankind’s most crucial invention so far, because it completely replaced the realm - the boat.
This distinctive discovery (almost in a single day) altered the gradual linear labourious evolution of mankind, as for the 2 million years ahead of this invention humanoids had lived with no switch or extra importantly with none cause to alter. additionally, via plotting the development of this workforce, utilizing their new bought boats, from the Caspian Sea to Caves within the Dordogne quarter of France, we will observe (through their DNA) this awesome ‘quantum second’ occasion in mankind’s background. simply because anything exceptional occurred via the Caspian Sea thirty thousand years in the past - humanoid cousins had crossbred for the 1st time to create a 'superior' humanoid species of mammoth strength and intelligence.
But the boat used to be no longer the one invention this misplaced civilisation found, for in the Caves of Lascaux archaeologists came upon mankind’s first work of epic proportions and aspect, sculptures of ivory and musical tools made of the hollowed bones of animals.
The French archaeologists who came upon the skeletal is still of this unknown society, instinctively knew they have been assorted to the other continues to be present in the earlier, as those skeletons have been over six toes tall with huge elongated heads - in order that they safely named them as a brand new species known as 'Cro-Magnon', which (for politically right purposes) present anthropologist have dropped and altered to a extra standard time period 'modern guy' (or Homo Sapien, Sapien) because the DNA proof has proven that this sub-species of mankind are endemic among present western societies.
At the top of the final ice age, a few fifteen thousand years in the past, the Cro-Magnons moved north following the reindeer herds (one in their significant staple nutrition assets besides shell and marine fish they stuck and farmed from their boat houses) to a newly printed land mass which these days lies below the North Sea, which we name ‘Doggerland’. For freshly backing out ice caps of the final ice age, had left a wondrous new land of lifestyles, power and nice good looks that's very life has echoed in the course of the mythology of our world's heritage - for our ancestors had discovered mankind's ‘utopian dream global’ which has been labelled in lots of methods some time past, yet in addition recognized to the recognized Greek thinker Plato as 'Atlantis'.
