Uriel's Machine: The Prehistoric Technology That Survived the Flood by Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas

Presents probably the clearest claim that I’ve seen that Freemasonry goes back way further than the Grand Lodge of England. Traces roots back to Enochian Judaism (and prior)! This book is utterly fascinating. Combines science, geometry, mathematics, astrology, archaeology, history. Page after page of links between differing times and places with a logical sensibility: Dead sea scrolls, Druids, henges, comets, floods, Megalithic sites, giants, the “Watchers,” development of writing, calendars. It truly is a remarkable book. Has good photos and illustrations. Well worth a read.
