Lost Civilizations: Cambodia, Egypt, Mexico...

(Cambodia Channel) "In Search of the Lost Civilization" by Graham Hancock (3 episodes)

Khmer, Bayon temple, Angkor Wat (PKP)
"In Search of the Lost Civilization" with Graham Hancock features Cambodia's magnificent Angkor Wat Hindu then Buddhist temple complex, the center of an advanced jungle civilization of 1 million urban and suburban residents and a great Southeast Asian empire. It is compared to the untold treasures of dynastic Egypt, megalithic Mexico, underwater Japan, the Nazca Desert of Peru, Easter Island, Micronesia, and elsewhere.

What are the connection between Angkor Wat in the Cambodian jungle (formerly the seat of the great Khmer Empire), pyramids in the Egyptian desert, and stone monuments on Easter Island and in Micronesia?

What is the underwater mystery of the stone complex in Japan? The last time it was above water was 10,000 years ago.
Our ancestors were certainly highly intelligent beings with technology excelling our own today. For thousands of years ago they precisely predicted a solar eclipse over Mexico that arrived in 1991.
Egypt destroyed by Aegean Sea Peoples
In this set of video recordings, writer Graham Hancock traverses the world and explains his controversial theory that an ancient civilization of highly intelligent people sailed or traversed the planet as early as 10,500 B.C. They spread advanced astronomical knowledge and built precise ancient observatories.

Skeptics may scoff, but Hancock points out similarities in giant stone structures in the Egyptian desert and Cambodian jungle, and on Easter Island and in Micronesia. He points out evidence of an ancient society of seafarers. His proposals seem utterly bizarre at first, but he presents them in an understated way making use of clever computer graphics and aerial photography to illustrate the startling similarities in ancient structures found from the North Atlantic to the South Pacific.
