Graham’s Books in Print
The Graham Phillips Website
3500 years ago strange things suddenly began to happen throughout the world - bizarre, simultaneous events that have never been explained. After living in relative peace for centuries, civilizations across the earth - in Asia, Europe, Africa, and the Americas - were suddenly overwhelmed by an epidemic of mass violence. Some civilizations, such as the Harappans of the Indus Valley and the Megalithic culture that built Stonehenge, mysteriously ceased to exist entirely. At the same time old gods were abandoned and new religions abruptly appeared. What was happening around 1500 BC? The End of Eden reveals the comet that changed civilization and irrevocably altered the course of history.

Historical evidence for the existence of Merlin and a Dark Age sea voyage to North America.

A bizarre tomb, almost 3500 years old, is discovered in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings.

In 1995 Graham’s discovery of an artifact that may have been the true Holy Grail created headlines around the world. This is the inside story of the remarkable adventure leading to that discovery. The Grail is identified, not as the cup used by Christ at the Last Supper, but as an alabaster jar said to have been used by Mary Magdalene to collect Jesus’ blood when he was crucified. Following a series of enigmatic clues, Graham discovers the hiding place of the Grail deep in a labyrinth of caves in central England.

Since the Middle Ages Robin Hood has been exiled to the realm of myth. Now Robin Hood: The Man Behind the Myth uncovers historical records proving that the infamous outlaw did in fact historically exist. The reason that no one seems to have discovered this astonishing evidence before is that the real Robin Hood lived during a different time and in a different place than depicted in the popular legend. We discover the birthplace of the fabled archer, the forest location of his exploits, identify the true Sherriff of Nottingham, and ultimately find Robin’s long forgotten grave.
The Shakespeare Conspiracy (with Martin Keatman) - English editions: HB Century 1994, PB Arrow 1995.
Green Stone
The historical facts concerning Shakespeare’s his life reveal many strange paradoxes. While the records from the theatrical world in London show that he was working as an actor and playwright, those from his hometown of Stratford-upon-Avon show that he was simply a grain merchant. Nowhere in the contemporary records of Stratford-upon-Avon is there a single reference to Shakespeare being a dramatist or writer of any kind. Some researchers have suggested that Shakespeare was not the author of the works attributed to him. The Shakespeare Conspiracy uncovers a more sinister reason for the playwright’s strange double life: he also worked as a government spy.
The Green Stone (with Martin Keatman) - UK editions: HB Spearman 1982, PB Grafton 1984. Revised edition: Immanion Press, 2019.
Following the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, a sacred stone that had once belonged to Mary Queen of Scots was hidden in the English Midlands. The clues to its whereabouts were left in paintings in a crumbling Elizabethan manor. In The Green Stone, Graham Phillips and Martin Keatman tell the full story of how this four-century-old cryptic code was solved, leading to the discovery of the mysterious relic buried in a casket in the tranquil countryside of central England. But this was not end. The stone was said to possess strange, supernatural powers.
Graham Phillips identifies a historical figure behind the legend of King Arthur, and searches for his capital city and his long-lost tomb. He presents compelling evidence that the Arthurian legends were actually based on real events. During a quest lasting over twenty-five years, Graham has followed a fascinating trail of historical clues showing Arthur to have been a living warrior who led the Britons around the year 500. He has discovered that the legendary Camelot, Excalibur and Avalon were based on a real city, a real sword and a real island. And, most astonishing of all, with the help of archaeologists employing the very the latest scientific equipment, Graham has found what he claims to be the location where Arthur was finally buried.
The Lost Tomb of King Arthur – US and UK edition: Bear & Company 2016.
Wisdomkeepers of Stonehenge - US and UK edition: Bear & Company, 2019.
The original purpose of Stonehenge is one of the world’s great unsolved mysteries. In Wisdomkeepers of Stonehenge, Graham argues that, with stones aligned to the sun, stars, and positions of the moon, stone circles were not just astronomical calendars, as some scholars have proposed, but were part of an elaborate system to determine precise timings necessary for the cultivation of medicinal plants. He presents compelling evidence that Stonehenge was built as an ancient healthcare facility, and that its creators had developed natural remedies for aliments and diseases which still thwart modern medicine - possibly even a cure for cancer.
In Strange Fate, the authors search for an ancient artifact called the Heart of the Rose. Hidden for over a hundred years, it is said to have the power to influence fate. Led by weird visions, enigmatic guides, and a series of bizarre coincidences, they must solve the mystery of strange temples on the estate of a Victorian mansion, follow a trail of cryptic clues left in old paintings, and uncover the incredible history of a nineteenth-century secret society, to find the relic before time runs out.
Although it defies belief, this extraordinary account is based entirely on actual events.
Strange Fate
Dramatic archaeological evidence has revealed the remains of a sunken land to the north of Great Britain that supported an advanced civilization 1000 years before those in ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, or India. Remembered in Celtic legends and referred to by geologists as North Doggerland or Fairland, this civilization began at least as early as 4000 BCE but was ultimately destroyed by rising sea levels, huge tsunamis, and a terrible epidemic released from melting permafrost during a cataclysmic period of global warming - a catastophe that may be about to repeat as temperatures continue to rise. Graham shows how, when the last vestiges of Doggerland sank beneath the waves around 3100 BCE, its survivors sailed to the British Isles where they established the Megalithic culture that built Stonehenge.
