IRVINE, CA (June 20, 2006) Acclaimed investigative journalist and best-selling author, GRAHAM HANCOCK, (The Sign and The Seal, Fingerprints of the Gods and Heaven's Mirror) will be a keynote speaker at the Conference of Precession and Ancient Knowledge (CPAK) on October 13-15, 2006 at the University of California, Irvine. The purpose of the conference is to foster dialog among experts in a wide range of fields to illuminate the ties between, mythology, modern science and our ancestral knowledge of the stars.

Hancock became famous in the mid-1990s when he proposed that a lost civilization having advanced technology had not only mapped the ancient world but also had bequeathed this knowledge to the prehistoric cultures of Egypt and the Americas.

Other speakers at CPAK include: Dr.Geoff Marcy, Professor of Astronomy at UC Berkeley and one of the leading astronomers in the world today, Dr. Robert M. Schoch, geologist at Boston University and well-known for his re-dating on the Great Sphinx, author and theoretical archaeo-astronomer Walter Cruttenden, Mayan cosmologist John Major Jenkins, Egyptologist John Anthony West and a number of other experts.

CPAK 2006 is the third annual gathering of this unique group of scholars in the fields of archaeology, astronomy, and alternative history. Hancock will open the conference by examining ancient structures on a global scale from the Great Pyramid in Egypt and the ruins of Peru, to submerged evidence of past civilizations off our coasts. He will show that there is a lot we have to learn about the ancient world and the complex societies built by our ancestors. To do so will help us better understand the past and future of the world.
