Book Summary

About The Author:

Book cover There were Giants Upon the EarthZecharia Sitchin (1920-2010), an eminent Orientalist and biblical scholar, was born in Russia and grew up in Palestine, where he acquired a profound knowledge of modern and ancient Hebrew, other Semitic and European languages, the Old Testament, and the history and archaeology of the Near East. A graduate of the University of London with a degree in economic history, he worked as a journalist and editor in Israel for many years prior to undertaking his life’s work–The Earth Chronicles.

One of the few scholars able to read the clay tablets and interpret ancient Sumerian and Akkadian, Sitchin based The Earth Chronicles series on the texts and pictorial evidence recorded by the ancient civilizations of the Near East. His books have been widely translated, reprinted in paperback editions, converted to Braille for the blind, and featured on radio and television programs.

When Kingship Was Lowered From Heaven

Who has not been fascinated since childhood by the tale – or legend – of Excalibur, the magical sword of King Arthur which was imbedded in a rock and could be pulled out only by the one chosen for kingship?

In her column (Fate, April 2004) Phyllis Galde reported a tale from Tuscany in Italy about “The Sword in the Stone” in the abbey of Montesiepi; traditions hold that it was plunged into the rock by the knight Galgano Guidotti in the 12th century. If true, she wrote, this would precede by decades the events attributed to King Arthur and would mean that “the Celtic myth of King Arthur and his sword Excalibur has origins in Italy.”

When Calamity Strikes Mankind – The Tsunami of 10,900 BC

Major catastrophes that befall Mankind are sometimes spoken of as being of “biblical proportions” to describe their immensity. The words have been used these days to convey the immensity of the calamity that befell the peoples and lands of the coastlines of the Indian Ocean, when an underwater earthquake caused a “Tsunami”, a tidal wave that spread across thousands of miles of ocean waters and, hitting land, crushed all before it.

Few if any of the news reporters who used the “biblical proportions” terminology may have realized how appropriate the analogy is; for some 13,000 years ago a huge tidal wave, a “Tsunami” if you will, overwhelmed the ancient lands and their inhabitants; except that that time, the tidal wave rose not thirty feet but many thousands of feet and more!

The Case of the Evil Wind

Climate Study Corroborates Sumer’s Nuclear Fate

At the end of the third millennium B.C. the great Sumerian civilization came to an abrupt end. Its sudden demise was bewailed in numerous lamentation texts that have been discovered by archeologists. The texts ascribed the calamity to an Evil Wind that came blowing from the west (from the direction of the Mediterranean Sea) — a deathly cloud that caused excruciating death to all living beings, people and animals alike, that withered plants and poisoned the waters.

In The Wars of Gods and Men (third book of The Earth Chronicles series), Zecharia Sitchin saw an explanation of the sudden death in a long text known to scholars as The Erra Epos, that described a chain of events that ultimately led to the use of “Weapons of Terror” in a conflict between opposing clans of the Anunnaki (“Those who from Heaven to Earth came”).

Planetary Discoveries: The Case of the Earthlike Planet

An exciting planetary discovery, just reported, spilled over from the scientific publications to the general media. Radio and television stations announced in headline news that “Another planet like Earth discovered”; The New York Times presented the news more accurately: SEARCH FINDS FAR-OFF PLANET AKIN TO EARTH.

Planetary Discoveries: Brother, It’s Hot Out There!

The assertion that the Anunnaki came from a planet (Nibiru) whose orbit extends far out in our solar system has repeatedly led to the question: How could life exist so far away from the Sun, where it is extremely cold and everything freezes?

My answer has been that we need not go that far out to freeze to death, just rising above Earth’s surface would do the trick. It is the planet’s atmosphere that retains the warmth, be it warmth obtained from the Sun, or from an internal source of heat. The crucial issue for the Anunnaki, I explained, was to prevent the loss of Nibiru’s atmosphere; they sought to do that with a shield of gold particles, and they came here to obtain the gold.
