When it comes to history, some people would rather crawl under a rock than sit and watch historians argue about who is right and who is wrong. Of course, there is usually an answer that the boffins land on eventually, otherwise we all would still be living in caves. We love history, so we also enjoy when new finds are found (see what we did there?) and so we applaud the work of those who often start off with nothing, but eventually present something rather spectacular to the world – at least to those who are paying attention.
One example of those on this “treacherous” path are archaeologists. These days they have so much impeccable knowledge and scientific tools at their fingertips which they devour in an effort to find the truth. But, since history itself doesn’t sit in a chair and wait for them to show up, their job can be a real slippery slope. And, if they step outside of “traditional” historical boundaries, they often get lambasted by peers (or pseudo-scientists who stir up the waters.
But some of them – and one we’ll talk about here – seem to have the ability to stir the pot, but also walk away with credulity. Perhaps this last type should be given more stead, as when you read their content and watch their video, it really makes you stop and think. And that is exactly what you should do – always.
Here, we highlight Graham Hancock, who has received enough noise about his work, but when you hear him talk, and absorb his knowledge, it makes you think twice. Here, he explores Ggantija Malta and asks some probing questions. Ġgantija is a megalithic temple complex from the Neolithic era, on the Mediterranean island of Gozo in Malta. The Ġgantija temples are the earliest of the Megalithic Temples of Malta and are older than the pyramids of Egypt.
