On a desolate plain in the Egyptian Sahara desert, west of Aswan, there is a very remote prehistoric site called Nabta Playa. There, a recently discovered complex of extremely ancient man-made megalithic structures have baffled the archaeologists who excavated them. An insight into the meaning and use of the megaliths led to a step-by-step sequence of discoveries, verified by measure and calculation, revealing that the megalithic architecture at Nabta Playa is a unified and detailed astrophysical map of truly astonishing accuracy, with no less than staggering implications. Written for the educated general reader, with technical appendices, the discovery of how to decipher the system of megalithic structures is reported with gripping clarity.

Imagine that, if an ancient civilization had found out that our existance in this planet is fragile; that any cataclismic event would vanish intelligent life for centuries; the only way to warn future civilizations would be to construct gigantic stone structures that would hold both trigonometric and astronomical knowledge, in several parts of the planet, and hope for some of them endure milleniuns until the emerging civilizations had evolved enough to understand the warnings that, in every precession cycle, all that have been built might vanish from one day to another... this book would explain it all.
