Hidden deep below Egypt's Giza plateau is perhaps the key to unlocking the mysteries of the Great Pyramid, one of the seven wonders of the world. Built using a technology unequaled even today, the ancient Egyptians claimed they inherited their advanced culture from a race of Elder gods who lived during a previous age known as Zep Tepi, the First Time.
In his earlier companion book From the Ashes of Angels, renowned historical writer Andrew Collins provided historical and scientific evidence showing how these Elder gods, who were the flesh and blood members of a race of fallen angels, founded ancient Egypt. Now, in Gods of Eden, he describes the remarkable achievements of their culture.
Assembling clues from archaeology, mythology, and religion, Collins shows us how this great society mastered acoustic technology and employed the use of sound to raise heavy objects into the air and pierce holes through solid rock. It was with this technology that they were able to construct gigantic structures that have marveled adventurers and archaeologists worldwide. With findings based on more than 20 years of research and scholarship, Collins reveals the fascinating historical destiny of this culture of fallen angels and the imprints and legacies they left behind at the genesis of civilization.
So if these early farming communities did not carve the Sphinx, then who did? Perhaps we are looking at the wrong time-frame altogether, and the Sphinx was carved during an entirely different age. If so, when?
The Great Pyramid is arguably the most accomplished engineering feat of the ancient world. Yet exactly how it came to be built is still one of the most perplexing enigmas of modern science. Few would deny it is the culmination of nearly 150 years of constructional experimentation, begun with the building early in the Third Dynasty, c. 2678 BC, of King Djoser's famous step pyramid at nearby Saqqara. Despite this realization, there are clear signs that the Great Pyramid and its two neighbors- the pyramids of Khafre and Menkaure - incorporate elements of engineering, mathematics and technology vastly superior to those of their assorted predecessors. Where did this additional knowledge come from? Did it really derive from centuries of trial and error or might it have had a quite separate source of origin - a secret mystery school, perhaps, who had held true to the ways of the Elder gods?
Perhaps cyclopean structures, such as the Valley Temple and the Osireion at Abydos, were like the ruined medieval abbeys of Britain today, revered yet never repaired, until son as yet uncertain impetus appeared on the scene and initiated the Pharaonic age in around 3100 BC. All the indications are that at this very time a whole plethora of new cultural ideas, new styles of worship and new designs in architecture were gradually being introduced into Egypt by Eastern invaders. Who were these people, and how might they have inspired Egypt's ruling elite to initiate major building projects, such as the construction of the various pyramid fields around the ancient city of Memphis? Were they in any way connected with the Elders who are presumed to have left Egypt over 5000 years beforehand? Did they retain myths and legends that spoke of Egypt, or more precisely the Giza plateau, as being their ancestral homeland? Could it have been these peoples who, with the aid of the Heliopolitan priesthood, helped revitalize Giza's ancient sanctity?

"Here is an author to watch. Here is someone who is really interested in the truth and will take us there at all costs. If science as a whole had a dozen more thinkers of this courage and tenacity then we would all be celebrating the millennium in the warmth of a new golden-age."
– Rand Flem-ath , co-author of The Atlantis Blueprint and When the Sky Fell
". . . a fascinating piece of research which does much to bring the biblical world of Eden back into the historical spotlight."
– David Rohl, Egyptologist, author of A Test of Time
