Native American legend tells of thirteen life-size crystal skulls said to contain crucial information about humankind’s true purpose and destiny. The legend prophesied that one day, at a time of great crisis for humanity, all thirteen crystal skulls would be rediscovered and brought together to reveal information vital to the very survival of the human race. To date several skulls have been discovered.

This book is the definitive guide to the facts and legends that inspired the May 2008 movie Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. It explores what these mysterious crystal skulls are, where they came from, and what they may have to offer. The book follows Chris Morton and Ceri Louise Thomas on their journey of discovery from the ancient temples of the Maya to the British Museum, the Smithsonian, and to the crystal laboratories of Hewlett-Packard, where scientific tests on one of the skulls--made from the same quartz crystal used in today’s computers--lead to the conclusion, “This skull shouldn’t even exist.” Their journey also leads to Native shamans and elders who reveal the sacred knowledge and vital information that these skulls hold about coming Earth changes and humanity’s imminent destiny.





Praise and Reviews
"Read this book!"
The Bodhi Tree Book Review

“Reads like an Indiana Jones-style adventure tale. Seldom has a recounting of archaeological research resulted in such a fascinating, fun, but ultimately terrifying read. This well-written book entertains as it educates.”
Janet Brennan, Fate magazine

"An expertly written, riveting book that is sure to astound you!"
Sirona Knight for Magical Blend magazine

"The researcher soon discovers that it is clear some of the skulls are modern frauds, but it is equally clear that some are not. . . . With so much speculation, myth, legend, and controversy, the serious student of the occult will appreciate this well researched and fact-filled book."
Lesley Crossingham, New Dawn Magazine
