What makes a civilization?
New geological studies and extracted drill cores in places like the Mediterranean, reveal the past geographical environment that existed at the end of the last Ice Age, 8 000 years ago. Over 25 million square kilometers of primarily warm habitable dry land lay exposed above sea level, and became inundated, in a series of sudden catastrophic global floods. Ice Dams that held back large glacial lakes burst open, sending a volume of water the size of lake Ontario into the ocean in a matter of days. One of Graham Hancock's best books, Underworld: The Mysterious Origins of Civilization, explores the climatic upheavals occurring during that period.
