A wonderful, stimulating, thought provoking new - or very old - approach to the greatest problems of human history. --Graham Hancock, Author, Fingerprints of the Gods
From the Publisher
If you liked Jarred Diamonds Pulitzer Prize Winner Guns, Germs and Steel, or his follow-up book, Collapse, but found something missing, you will love Lost Star of Myth and Time. Diamond showed us that environment plays an important role in the success or failure of regional culture but he did not explain the macro trends. Walter Cruttenden, with an archaeo-astronomy background, shows us it is not just mans place on Earth that matters; it is Earths place in space, and the myriad stellar influences that affect it, that provides the macro environment for life and consciousness itself.
Lost Star is a fast-paced historical detective story that is richly illustrated to make archaeological and astronomical discoveries easy to understand. It is Cruttendens position with the Binary Research Institute and his eclectic knowledge of ancient history and cutting-edge science that has enabled him to make the theory of the precession of the equinox sound like a non-fiction thriller. He takes history apart then shows how the Sun, carrying the Earth around another star, would have profound implications for mankind. It is insightful, believable and more than certain to ruffle a few feathers with old traditionalists. This book is a must read for anyone interested in history, astronomy, subtle energy physics or those that just want to know where we came from and where were going.

Only gripe is that a disproportionate amount of time is devoted to discussing certain "out of place artifacts" which are obviously hoaxes. The Baghdad batteries and the Antikythera Mechanism are truly out of place artifacts in the context of the standard chronology. Spark plugs and golden chains "found" in lumps of coal are not.
I think this book would do a lot better with an update or a follow up. Get rid of the obvious hoaxes, include further research that supports or dismisses the hypothesis, etc.
