Much of the ancient world inherited by our ancestors now lies under water after melting ice caps flooded vast areas at the end of the last Ice Age. New advances in geology and marine technology mean that the great archaeological finds of this comingcentury will more than likely be found under the oceans. It now looks highly likely that large populations of early humans were obliterated from the historical record by this catastrophe, over 10,000 years ago. But who were these populations - pre-civilised hunter-gathers or more sophisticated peoples altogether? Graham Hancock takes us on an exciting new quest to find out some of the answers.
