Review

“Graham Phillips’s real contribution to what might be called the world of alternative ancient history is his connection of the natural disasters and ­phenomena described in Exodus with the eruption of Thera. . . . Plausibly argued.” (The Times Literary Supplement)

"An entertaining read." (www.needcoffee.com, October 24, 2004)

EGYPT / ANCIENT MYSTERIES

“Graham Phillips’s real contribution to what might be called the world of alternative ancient history is his connection of the natural disasters and phenomena described in Exodus with the eruption of Thera. . . . Plausibly argued.”
--The Times Literary Supplement

In Atlantis and the Ten Plagues of Egypt, Graham Phillips explores the excavation of a mysterious and ritually desecrated tomb in the Valley of the Kings, Tomb 55, which he contends holds the key to the true history of the destruction of Atlantis. Unlike other Egyptian tombs designed to keep intruders out, Tomb 55 was constructed to keep something imprisoned within, specifically the spirit of Sekhmet, the Egyptian goddess of destruction, who was believed to have incarnated in Smenkhkare, the older brother of Tutankhamun. It was Sekhmet who, under the reign of Amonhotep III, was attributed with causing the plagues of the Exodus. The forensic findings from Tomb 55 coupled with compelling new evidence from the polar ice caps provide sensational evidence that the parting of the Red Sea, the deaths of the first born, and the other plagues that afflicted Egypt were all actual historical events.

Core samples from the polar ice caps indicate that a gigantic volcanic eruption took place in the eastern Mediterranean around the time of Amonhotep’s reign. Other research suggests this to have been the time of the eruption that destroyed the Greek island of Thera, one of the likely locations of Atlantis, and that the subsequent cataclysm may explain the unusual lack of resistance to the new monotheistic religion installed by Amonhotep’s son, Akhenaten, when he took power several years later.

GRAHAM PHILLIPS has been investigating unsolved mysteries for twenty years. The author of The Marian Conspiracy and The Moses Legacy, he lives in England.

Format: Paperback
This is a cleverly written historical detective story set against a backdrop of in-depth and scholarly research. The author finds archaeological and scientific evidence to suggest that certain seemingly unbelievable destructive events recorded in the Old Testament really occurred. To give an example, he puts together discoveries from Egyptian tombs with geological surveys of the Mediterranean seabed to show that a huge tsunami may have thrashed the Egyptian coast in the fourteenth century BCE to cause what the Bible describes as the parting of the Red Sea in which the Pharaoh's army was drowned by a gigantic wave. This event, the book suggests, could also have devastated a civilization on the island of Crete to give rise to the legend of Atlantis. Many crazy and unfounded ideas have found their way into print concerning Atlantis and biblical mysteries in recent years but this is definitely not one of those. The author critically examines the findings of accredited archaeologists, Egyptologists and scientists in developing his hypotheses which he arrives at step by logical step. Historians today tend to shy away from sensational-sounding catastrophe theories when it comes to the decline of ancient civilizations, but following the tragic events in south Asia recently this book makes one think seriously about just how devastating natural cataclysms can really be.

This book is a real gem. Graham Phillips' revelation that the golden face mask on the coffin of Tutankhamun does not depict the famous boy king is truly fascinating. I can't believe that no one has noticed it before. Just compare it with the famous death mask - it clearly is not the same. I also found it remarkable that no one has realized that the ten plagues of Egypt so resemble the effects of volcanic fallout before.
Keep up the good work Mr. Phillips - and keep everybody on their toes.
The only thing I don't quite understand is the title. Atlantis does not seem to have anything to do with this book, apart from on one page.

Format: Paperback
If you were fed up with books about Ancient Egypt and never thought you would read one again, then try this. It is a really fascinating read. In short, the theme is that Exodus plagues of the Bible were true events caused by a natural catastrophe, but there is far more here that is enlightening and engaging. The author examines the period when the Exodus appears to be set - sometime in the fourteenth century BC - and, by using the records that survive from that time, he paints a vivid picture of one of the most fascinating and little understood eras of human history: when the idea of a single god first became a part of organized religion. He also proposes answers to a number of historical enigmas, such as the identity of the real Moses and the truth behind the Atlantis legend, and introduces a new mystery of his own - that the famous facemask of Tutankhamun does not represent the king at all but his scheming brother. In my opinion, this last riddle alone makes the book well worth reading.

Format: Paperback
It begins with the opening of the strangest tomb ever found in the Valley of the Kings. A mummy whose name has been erased and its soul bound by talismans of magical protection. An ancient Egyptian who was so feared that the priesthood thought they had to imprison his spirit for all time. It all sounds like fiction - but it's not. Each detail of the find is preserved in the writings of the archaeologists who found it and can still be read today. It is remarkable that no one has brought the details of this discovery to light before. This alone would make a great movie. But it's only the beginning.

His quest to discover the identity of this mummy and the reasons for its strange and unique form of burial, leads the author to make what must be the most astonishing series of discoveries about Egyptian history that have ever been made. Moses, the plagues of Egypt, the parting of the Red Sea and the Exodus really occurred as described in the Bible. Beyond belief? Graham Phillips produces archaeological, historical and scientific evidence to prove it. This too would also make a fantastic movie in its own right. But it doesn't end there. The author discovers that these events were the result of a gigantic volcanic cataclysm that also created the legend of Atlantis. Another movie here!

Ultimately, Phillips returns to the mysterious mummy, concluding that it was the earthly remains of the man whose evil influence was deemed responsible for the catastrophe - a forgotten Egyptian king named Smenkhkare, the brother of Tutankhamun. Finally, he reveals the most incredible fact of all.
