ANCIENT MYSTERIES / INCA STUDIES

"Cotterell puts up enough evidence to make even the most skeptical take note."
--London Daily Mail

"The Lost Tomb of Viracocha is excellent."
--Director General of the Instituto Nacionale de Antropologia e Historia (INAH) in Mexico

Inca mythology tells of a tall, white leader who wandered along the coast performing miracles, a man they called Viracocha Pachacamac, which means “God of the World.” Centuries later another great miracle worker, similar to the first, appeared and wandered the countryside, healing the sick and restoring sight to the blind. He, too, was named Viracocha.

These accounts have long baffled scholars, as have the carvings left by the people of Tiahuanaco, Bolivia, who preserved these legends. Now Maurice Cotterell, who cracked the codes hidden in both ancient Maya carvings and the treasures of Tutankhamun, unlocks the secrets concealed within the treasure-filled tombs of Viracocha Pachacamac and Viracocha. His investigation of these tombs, held within the long-lost pyramids of Peru, proves that these two figures were not myth but actually existed 1,500 years ago.

The two Viracocha sun-kings had much in common with Lord Pacal of Mexico and Tutankhamun of Egypt and, like them, left the secrets of a solar science encoded in their treasures. Using a method of calculating the duration of long-term magnetic reversals on the sun, Cotterell reveals the intimate connection between the cycles of life and birth on Earth and solar activity such as sunspots. More important, he shows how this science holds the key to reincarnation and human spiritual realization, with answers to the spiritual mysteries of life and death.

MAURICE COTTERELL, a mathematician and scientist formerly at the Cranfield Institute of Technology, was awarded the Voluntariado Cultural medal in 1992 for his contributions to Mexican culture. He is the author of the international bestseller The Tutankhamun Prophecies and coauthor of The Mayan Prophecies. He lives in Ireland.
