gobekli tepe - genesis of the gods


Andrew Collins

astrology in ancient mesopotamia

Hundreds of years from now, the mysteries of Gobekli Tepe will likely have been solved. The triumphant researcher(s) would gather their evidence and data to be published in a ground breaking explanation of the ancient megalithic site. These efforts could be viewed as the new testament of Gobekli Tepe research, while the inquisitive would pay homage to Gobekli Tepe – Genesis of the Gods as if it were the old testament. Andrew Collins has crafted something truly captivating and resoundingly important.

If you have read any of Collins’ previous efforts, you will have an understanding of what you’re in for. Detailed research and in depth analysis is the fuel to the author’s descriptive and vivid fire geared towards the layman. Gobekli Tepe is one of the most important and oldest megalithic sites currently being explored. Dating back to the end of the Younger Dryas, Gobekli Tepe provides onlookers with a window into our past and allows the curious to meticulously piece the unknown chapters of our story together.

Collins guides the reader through a whirlwind of data in a page-turning, can’t put it down manner. His investigative efforts traverse the discovery of Gobekli Tepe, neolithization, the deliberate burial of the megalithic complex, glyphs and ideograms, astronomical alignments, and current archeological efforts. These examples are a truncated summary of the hundreds of topics covered in this incredible work, easily viewable as the definitive guide to Gobekli Tepe. The author also went to great lengths to include detailed photography and diagrams that allow the reader to immediately connect with the descriptions set forth in the book.

The author’s ability to see the bigger picture and think outside the box has warranted a fascinating and thought-provoking hypothesis as to the role of the megalithic site. Collins explores the mystery of when and where our species evolved and how it relates to Gobekli Tepe. The bibliography alone is a testament to the copious amount of research that was completed by the author and the tone is set with a riveting introduction by Graham Hancock. This is a book that I will likely read several times and I couldn’t recommend it more. We give Gobekli Tepe – Genesis of the Gods by Andrew Collins 5 solid stars.
