May 23, 2006

NEWPORT BEACH, CA- Organizers for the 3rd annual "Conference on Precession and Ancient Knowledge" (CPAK) have selected the University of California, Irvine as the location for this year's gathering of some of the most well known authors in alternative history and science.

Speakers at this year's event include explorer Graham Hancock, author of Fingerprints of the Gods, archaeoastronomer Walter Cruttenden, author of Lost Star of Myth and Time, Mayan scholar John Major Jenkins, author of Maya Cosmogenisis 2012, rebel Egyptologist John Anthony West, author of Serpent in the Sky, and megalithic investigator John Burke, author of Seed of Knowledge, Stone of Plenty. Other presenters include world-renowned astronomer Geoff Marcy, professor of astronomy at UC Berkeley, advanced cultures physicist John Dering, paranormal investigator Dr. Claude Swanson, author of The Synchronized Universe, nanotechnology and Sanskrit specialist Boris Fritz from Northrop Grumman, and famed geologist Robert Schoch, author of Voices of the Rocks, known for re-dating the Sphinx.

This eclectic group of scientists and authors will be discussing the idea that ancient cultures may have been far more advanced than heretofore believed and that celestial motion might play a role in the rise and fall of civilization. The public is invited to attend the audio-video presentations to be held on October 14 -15 at the Social Sciences Building on the UCI campus.
