Graham Hancock is one of the foremost thinkers of our time. A brilliant author, orator and in my opinion the foremost researcher in the world of what we would normally refer to as “forbidden archaeology”. He has travelled the globe in search of our ancient past and has questioned much of what establishment archaeology has been preaching. Much of what he has discovered contradicts the so called ‘experts’.
Graham’s thought provoking books (have sold millions of copies worldwide and include Fingerprints of The Gods, Underworld: The Mysterious Origins of Civilisation, The Mars Mystery and ‘Keeper of Genesis’ among many others.
I have tried in vain on two occasions to talk to my fellow Scot (Graham was born in Edinburgh), via Facebook and get Graham to comment on the Baltic Anomaly. My feeling was that given the unique features present on this object – this kind of discovery was “right up his street” as they say. Yesterday, and at long last, I had a brief exchange with him and asked him to share his thoughts on the Baltic Anomaly.
I should add that I do not know how well Graham knows the story or how familiar he is with the many strange things that have been discovered. Nevertheless, I was very surprised by his response – as I am sure many of you will be….
“In response to Craig Brown, re the Baltic Sea anomaly — I honestly don’t think it’s that interesting. It’s stone, not metal, therefore not any kind of millennium falcon type “craft” as many were suggesting last year. If man made it was done within the last 11,000 years or less since the Baltic Sea was filled with Ice during the whole of the last Ice Age and this was not replaced with water until about 11,000 years ago.
I.e nobody could have built anything there before the ice cap that covered it melted, and after that it filled up with seawater pretty quickly. My bet is it’s some kind of glacial erratic — a hunk of rock carried along in a glacier and dumped there.
Hi Graham – thank you for your response.
The ‘Millennium Falcon’ tag came purely from the lamestream media who spun the story into a nonsensical tale void of any truth. The OceanX team are a professional salvage team who have (up until this day) stated that they do not know what it is. There are so many features of this ‘rock’ which defy logic and I would like if I may to present some of them to you.
Small circles of stones like ‘fireplaces’ were found on top of the object. A dome measuring 4 metres now nicknamed ‘The Meringue’ rests on top like a pimple on the forehead of a giant. There are many many smooth ‘walls’ and ‘corridors’ many metres long throughout the object. There is a perfectly round 2 foot hole in the side of the object that no-one yet has had a chance to fully explore.
Perhaps one of the most perplexing finds was a 2 metre wide perfect circle found within another perfectly square ‘frame’ or depression. Lots of these features do not fit neatly into the prescribed characteristics of a naturally formed object.
The team have had issues with technical equipment malfunctioning whenever they are in close proximity to the object and the Swedish Navy are now involved in some capacity.
Please read the article and take a look at the pictures. I have been writing and following the story since the beginning and it makes no sense. Geologists have so far been stumped on this one and when analysis was also done by the University of Stockholm they were very surprised by some of the findings regarding the stone samples and composition.
I believe this requires further investigation and the team want an answer one way or another. If it’s a rock then it’s a rock, but it has many anomalous features including many right angles and cavities which suggest otherwise.
Thanks for your consideration.

Update: Graham has replied after someone had posted my article on his Facebook wall and I salute him for keeping an open mind regarding this most perplexing object.
“I understand there are regularities about the structure and possibly man-made features mentioned in the article you link to, but so far I don’t see anything in them that compels me to believe I am looking at the work of any kind of lost high civilisation. Naturally my primary interest is in anomalies that rewrite history rather than fit into it. But I would love to be shown that this anomaly does indeed rewrite history.” Graham Hancock / 10th March 2014
