This is a reissue of Geoffrey Ashe’s 1992 book Dawn Behind the Dawn. Geoffrey is an acknowledged authority on King Arthur and a legendary Glastonbury figure. Here he presents rich evidence that the Garden of Eden existed in the Altai Mountains in Russia and that many tales and legends of a Golden Age can be traced back to this area, where a matrifocal and shamanism-based culture was based as far back as 24,000 BCE. Later migration spread these beliefs, including the all-pervasive mythic symbolism of the number 7, in all directions, including Greece, northern India and Babylon. This new edition is also able to include the latest evidence, including the fascinating remains found in the Denisova Cave. The research is thorough and the descriptions absolutely compelling.
