Mostly a crock, but interesting.,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Chariots of the Gods: Unsolved Mysteries of the Past (Taschenbuch)
Actually, I thought the "shocking theory of prehistoric UFO visitations" was first advanced by Captain Kirk in the Star Trek episode "Who Mourns for Adonais?", but that's neither here nor there.
I first read this book immediately after watching the TV film he had produced, complete with awe-inspiring background music and grandiloquent narration. The vast majority of the "evidence" he cites only vaguely--if at all--suggests rehistoric visitation by aliens. Worse, Von Daniken seems to believe that early human civilizations were incapable of putting one brick on top of another without alien assistance. On the other hand there are a few compelling exceptions, like the "astronaut" paintings in southern Algeria.
All in all it's a fun read, but don't take it too seriously.
