Graham Hancock (born 2 August 1950) is a British writer and journalist mostly known for his books and works challenging orthodox archaeological views. He also wrote and presented the Channel 4 documentaries Underworld: Flooded Kingdoms of the Ice Age and Quest for the Lost Civilisation.

His main areas of interest are ancient mysteries, stone monuments or megaliths, ancient myths and astronomical/astrological data from the past. One of the main themes running through many of his books is the possible global connection with a "mother culture" from which all ancient historical civilizations sprang. Although his books have sold more than five million copies worldwide and have been translated into twenty-seven languages, his conclusions have found little support among mainstream academics. Hancock, who freely admits he has no formal training in archaeology, sees himself as providing a counterbalance to what he calls the "unquestioned" acceptance and support given to orthodox views by the education system, the media, and by society at large.[1]
