Additional Information

There must have been a Civilization One: a highly advanced precursor to the earliest recognized civilization. That's the conclusion reached in this fascinating book. Christopher Knight and Alan Butler began with a quest to crack the mystery of the ancient “megalithic yard”-a precise unit of measurement based on the motions of the Earth, Moon, and Sun. It seems beyond the comprehension of the supposedly unsophisticated people of Stone Age Britain, and yet the measurement kept appearing in ancient structures. The authors' breakthrough discovery goes far beyond the idea of prehistory, and has far-reaching theological ramifications.

This fascinating book of alternative history examines the evidence of weights and measures and comes to the conclusion that there must have been an advanced culture in prehistory. The structures of the Stone Age were built by using a very precise unit of measurement, called the megalithic yard. The book explores the science behind prehistoric units, their mathematical origin and means of reproduction, and proves that these are linked to the dimensions of the solar system.

The reader must have a basic knowledge of arithmetic but overall the book is an easy read and very revealing. Amongst the topics discussed are writing, Egypt, Sumeria, the Minoan foot, solar and sidereal days, pendulums and the importance of the planet Venus. It turns out that the British Pound and Pint are both derived from ancient measurements. The units of the hour, minute and second were developed more than 4000 years ago, from the movements of the moon.

I have made the journey from the Hiram Key, through the Book of Hiram and now Civilization One. They are all interconnected but not in the way that I had thought them to be. If I had to choose only one to remember, it would be C.O. because it provides some solution as to how we begin our quest for true knowledge of who we are and the origin of our culture. It provides a unifying theory of our civil developement but does not yet reveal the origins of our culture. I am fully expecting more to come from the authors and suspect I will not be disappointed. The book is all 'stuff' and no 'fluff' and is presented in such a way that anyone with basic math skills can follow it adequately to understand the conclusions. It is an easy read but still left me with an urge for more info. Although the music is nice and interesting, I would have been satisfied just knowing about it, since hearing it does nothing to confirm or deny the other data presented. Congratulations to both authors, and I... Read more
This book is a real world-changer. It is exciting to read and the facts are beyond dispute. I am on my third reading right now and I would recommend this book to everyone. Some of the reviews on this site must be from people who have not read the book - such as someone who rambles on about Knight and Butler having invented some connection between ancient peoples. This is not what the book is about at all! They stick to testable facts that I for one have checked out.

I'm still getting over the impact this book has had on me -read it and make up your own mind.
