Review: Exodus Lost by S.C. Compton

Aztec and Mayan chronicles told of voyagers who arrived from across the Atlantic Ocean centuries before Columbus. Remembered as founding fathers, they hailed from a remote land called Tlillan Tlapallan, "Black Land Red Land." Now, for the first time, Exodus Lost presents compelling evidence that this lost homeland was Kemet Deshret, "Black Land Red Land," the ancient Egyptian name for Egypt. From this follow a series of groundbreaking discoveries into the origins of Mexican civilization, the roots of Western civilization, the creation of the alphabet, the history of the pyramids, and even new archaeological evidence for several major Bible stories. Enter a world of exploration and discovery, mystery and revelation. Whether your passion is archaeology or religion, history or simply a great adventure, Exodus Lost delivers.

Beautifully illustrated with 126 photos, maps, and engravings.

Received for review.

I've always been interested in history so this was particularly intriguing for me to read. I was already reasonably familiar with the history of the groups involved (Aztecs, Mayan, Egyptian, etc.) so that did help a bit but the author explained everything so clearly, and provided lots of excellent charts, graphs, and pictures to fully illustrate his points, that you really don't need to have any previous knowledge to thoroughly enjoy this volume.

The author's research and conclusions may seem controversial to some but the evidence presented has been thoroughly vetted which certainly adds to the veracity of his genuinely fascinating arguments.

I will admit that this is on the longer side and does require a time investment, but it is certainly well worth it.

I highly recommend this well written, intelligent, and cohesive volume. Both those already familiar with the subject matter and those new to it will benefit from this excellent read.

★★★★ = Really Liked It
