INDIANA JONES AND THE MYSTERY OF THE CRYSTAL SKULLS
The new Indiana Jones movie focuses on Indiana Jones search for the legendary crystal skulls. Just like the Ark of the Covenant, or the Holy Grail, other ancient artefacts featured in the Indiana Jones series, crystal skulls are surrounded by mystery and intrigue.
FIND OUT THE TRUTH ABOUT THE CRYSTAL SKULLS
The original guide to the facts and legends that inspired the Indiana Jones movie is the best-selling book 'The Mystery of the Crystal Skulls' by Chris Morton & Ceri Louise Thomas. Based on the research they carried out for their highly acclaimed BBC/A & E documentary, this fascinating and informative exploration of the truth about the crystal skulls has now been translated into fifteen languages.
THE LEGEND OF THE CRYSTAL SKULLS
An old Native American legend tells of thirteen skulls, the same size and shape as human skulls, but made of pure crystal. Left behind by the earliest ancestors way back in the mists of time, these crystal skulls were said to be a source of great knowledge and wisdom. They were said to contain information about the past history of the planet and the future of mankind. The legend also prophesied that one day, at a time of great crisis for humanity, all of these crystal skulls would be rediscovered and brought back together to reveal information vital to the very survival of the human race.
A REAL CRYSTAL SKULL IS DISCOVERED
The legend of the crystal skulls may have remained merely a colourful story were it not for the fact that a real crystal skull was discovered by a British explorer, in an ancient Mayan temple deep in the jungles of Central America, back in the 1920's, whilst on a quest for the lost civilisation of Atlantis.
Since then, several other crystal skulls have also come to light, just as prophesied in the legend.
As enigmatic as the Pyramids of Egypt, Stonehenge or the Holy Grail, the crystal skulls have created a storm of archaeological controversy.
