Book Description

A view into the sophisticated and highly advanced civilization that preceded the world of the pharaohs

• Presents historical evidence of the civilization ruled by the “gods” that the Egyptians claimed preceded their own

• Explains who these prehistoric people were, what happened to them, and why they built a series of pyramids along the west bank of the Nile River

Traditional Egyptologists have long resisted the notion that the architectural achievements of the Ancient Egyptians required the existence of a much more sophisticated technology than would have existed at that time. Yet, no records exist explaining how, why, or who built Egypt’s megalithic monuments and statues. The ancient Egyptians did, however, record that their civilization resided in the shadow of a kingdom of “gods” whose reign ended many thousands of years before their first dynasty. What was this Civilization X that antiquity’s most accomplished people revered as gods?

The recent discovery of a large stone at one of Egypt’s oldest ruins presents physical evidence that clearly and distinctly shows the markings of a machining process far beyond the capabilities of the Ancient Egyptians. Likewise, experimental modeling of the Great Pyramid’s subterranean chambers and passageways gives scientific evidence to further support the theory that the civilization responsible for such magnificent monuments is much older than presently believed. Ancient Egypt 39,000 BCE examines this evidence from historical and technical points of view, explaining who these prehistoric people were, what happened to them, why they built their civilization out of granite, and why they built a series of pyramids along the west bank of the Nile River.


Editorial Reviews

Review

Ancient Egypt 39,000 BCE presents a cogent and insightful overview of competing theories that relate to the possible origins of ancient Egypt, along with compelling, new, specific evidence to suggest that its megalithic structures may be far, far older than traditionally accepted. There is much food for thought here--even for a seasoned student of the mysteries of ancient Egypt--well conceived and well presented.” (Laird Scranton, author of Sacred Symbols of the Dogon)

“As our own civilization continues to make the kinds of fascinating discoveries Malkowski describes, I believe we may sooner than later find history to be quite different from what we thought it was.” (Alan Glassman, New Dawn Magazine, November 2010)

“Subtitled 'The History, Technology and Philosophy of Cvilization X', this is a groundbreaking study making a strong case for the existence of much more sophisticated technology than is currently acknowledged to have been involved in building the pyramids. . . This is a serious piece of work which deserves careful consideration.” (The Scientific & Medical Network, UK, December 2010)

4.0 out of 5 stars Well Crafted November 13, 2010
Format:Paperback
While the idea the Giza monuments were not built by Egyptians and may be older and of a different purpose than currently believed is obviously nothing new, Malkowski lays out a compelling and sober case based on verifiable facts and common sense observations providing yet another example of why such notions are not as far fetched as they may seem. A well researched, well presented collection of known controversies, conflicting data, technological and even anthropological anomalies, intermingled with original insight and new discoveries, helps create a greater context unique to this particular book making it well worth the read. Definitely a cut above most of the genre and despite the title is not as fantastical as it seems. To his credit, as is often the fate of other such writers, Malkowski's final conclusions are not irreparable nose dives over the deep end of speculative fancy which would normally destroy the credibility of an otherwise fine piece of work. Close, but he is able to pull back in time before the damage is done leaving himself and the reader relatively unscathed. Definitely one of the better books I had read on the subject in a long time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ancient Need Not Be Supernatural July 18, 2010
Format:Paperback
This book is a very welcome look at ancient Egypt. Some of what Malkowski investigates is great: he exposes archaeological problems, strange artifacts, new evidence and enigmas, shines the light on weak or contradictory evidence and theories. All well and good and necessary. I love open-minded investigations and science can only benefit from removing blinders and digging deeper. This book is in the inquisitive nature of Von Daniken, to always question and remain open to the new.

However, Malkowski also suffers a bit from the same "wild speculations" disorder that many of the members of "fringe" historians/scientists do. He can't seem to relax into the proposal that, yes, quite probably Egyptian civilization or its precursors are far older and more advanced than we give them credit for being. He almost crosses that Sitchen-line from inquisitiveness into well maybe it was ancient gods or extraterrestrials who did it? Not necessary. He goes up and maybe peeks over, but should stay well on this side of the fence. My fear is that this book is misunderstood and lumped in with the kooky trash rather than being read on its own merits. But basically, Malkowski does a great service and should be commented for it.

Ancient Egypt 39,000 BCE is a fact-filled, fascinating read that raises many important questions.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some New Information, But Theories Unfounded April 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This review covers the Kindle edition of the book. Just reading the title one can discern what the book is about. The author is a good writer. The story is well organized, but there is some repetition. What I enjoyed the most was the information that one does not often read about ancient Egypt, what I did not like was the theories that were put forth for the construction of the pyramids and the speculation concerning civilization X.

The author, Mr. Malkowski, lets us know that Egypt abounds with granite which was used extensively by the ancient Egyptians, and that the granite was worked with very skilled hands - or was it? The theory put forth is the ancients had some kind of circular saws to cut the granite and also had tools that could cut grooves to exacting dimensions. It is pointed out that certain curved lid boxes were cut to such exacting measurements that we would have trouble doing the same thing today with modern computer controlled cutting heads. He also makes a good case for the ancient Egyptians having lathes that could cut stone bowls.

Then the theories advance. Because the older structures and artifacts are better than the younger ones Mr. Malkowski thinks the older civilization, much older, was the more advanced. Somehow this knowledge was lost to incoming people who took over the Nile Valley after 39,000 BC (or BCE to the politically correct). He speculates that some type of catastrophe struck the valley and all but destroyed the advanced civilization and the newcomers were not able to pick up the knowledge left behind.

Using the age of the Sphinx, as shown by water erosion, he dates the early civilization to 20 to 40 thousand BC.

5.0 out of 5 stars Was pre-history Egypt extremely advanced? December 29, 2012
Format:Paperback
Also on Amazon.com, I have reviewed a book by Frank Joseph entitled Atlantis and 2012. This book by Edward Malkowski follows closely along the heels of Joseph's research by synthesising the findings of John Cadman (who wrote the Foreword), John Anthony West and Robert Schoch, Christopher Dunn and Sir William Flinders Petrie, Dr. Paul LaViolette, John Burke, Philip Callahan, and a number of others.

In the Introduction and first three chapters, Malkowski summarises key research, old and new, dealing with cataclysms that may have befallen earth in pre-history, the sophisticated use of granite in ancient Egypt, the now recognised erosion of the Sphinx by water, and the preciseness of stone cutting evidencing powered machinery in both upper and lower regions of the country.

Perhaps, most importantly, the Introduction, called "Apocalypse Now," presents a thesis that a previous, advanced civilisation which fashioned the stones of ancient Egypt was catastrophically destroyed. Almost nothing was left for subsequent populations to recognise how such monumental constructions were accomplished.

This theory is effectively presented by briefly recounting a documentary entitled `Life After People' in which "experts in civil engineering and geology testify to the speed in which civilisation's infrastructure would erode into nothing... Only objects made from the hardest rock or the thickest concrete would survive." There would also be no evidence left of the tools and machinery that made those objects.

However, it is in Chapter 4 that the hypothesis takes on new and added proof when Malkowski describes what is termed "A New Rosetta Stone.
