The groundbreaking classic that introduced the theory that ancient Earth established contact with aliens.

Immediately recognized as a work of monumental importance, Chariots of the Gods endures as proof that Earth has been visited repeatedly by advanced aliens from other worlds. Here, Erich von Däniken examines ancient ruins, lost cities, spaceports, and a myriad of hard scientific facts that point to extraterrestrial intervention in human history. Most incredible of all, however, is von Däniken's theory that we are the descendants of these galactic pioneers--and he reveals the archeological discoveries that prove it...

The dramatic discoveries and irrefutable evidence:
* An alien astronaut preserved in a pyramid
* Thousand-year-old spaceflight navigation charts
* Computer astronomy from Incan and Egyptian ruins
* A map of the land beneath the ice cap of Antarctica
* A giant spaceport discovered in the Andes

Includes remarkable photos that document mankind's first contact with aliens at the dawn of civilization.

This book will make you dumber.

Originally published in 1970, this book discusses fascinating archaeological discoveries and pairs them with intriguing theories and explanations. The author takes on many ancient mysteries in ways that prompt further contemplation and investigation.
Both entertained and informed, I recommend this book for out-of-the-box thinkers, as this book touches on space, UFOs and telepathy.
One is left with the feeling not nearly enough is being done to understand past civilizations and the archaeological "gold mines" they left behind that could also help us understand our future. It inspires the reader to search for more recent information and discoveries.
