Ancient accounts speak of a time -when angels, demons and fallen angels 'walked freely among humankind. Where do these strange legends come from? Can they have any basis in truth? And what can we learn from their existence?
In an exciting historical quest across the Middle East, author Andrew Collins uncovers compelling evidence to show that angels and the fallen angels of the Bible were not creations of God, but a race of flesh and blood beings. These human angels are vividly described in the Dead Sea Scrolls and in a Judaic work known as the Book of Enoch, where they are referred to not just as angels, but also as the Watchers.
From the Ashes of Angels convincingly demonstrates that the Watchers were the last remnant of a high civilization that existed in Egypt at the end of the last Ice Age, c.9000 BC.They were responsible for the construction of the Great Sphinx and other cyclopean structures. During the climatic and geological cataclysms that accompanied this troubled period of human history, this advanced culture sank back into oblivion.
Those who survived began anew in the mountains of Kurdistan - a vast desolate region spoken of in mythology as Eden, Heaven and Paradise. Here, in the vicinity of Lake Van, the Watchers would appear to have continued as an insular colony for some 4000 years before they became integrated with developing human society. From this early contact with humankind arose the foundations of Western civilization.
If our civilization is the forbidden legacy of this lost race, then there is compelling evidence, Andrew Collins argues, to show that this hidden history, revealed for the first time in From the Ashes of Angels, has been deliberately suppressed by organized religion. More disconcerting is the knowledge that these human angels appear to have left behind a clear warning that the cataclysmic fate which befell their own civilization could one day happen again a message we now ignore at our peril.

This is the story of an ancient tribe of super-intelligent beings that lived on the Iraq-Iranian border and who, through their wisdom, created the basis for Western civilization. Unable to know what to call them, mankind gave them the name of angels. But they were not angels - they were a race unto themselves. The author, Andrew Collins, has investigated archaeological data as well as cultural and literary sources to produce an account of this lost culture. Their knowledge was such that mankind lived in fear of them as well as in awe. Mankind ascribes Pagan myths, supernatural magic, and the power of the divine to this race, and as organized religion became more powerful, it sought to eliminate all traces of this forbidden and secretive group of people.
