Astounding revelations about an unknown civilization which pre-dates the Ancient Egyptians - from a powerful team including the co-author of international bestseller The Hiram Key.

This is the extraordinary story of how a quest to try to crack the mystery of the "Megalithic Yard" - an ancient unit of linear measurement - led to the discovery of compelling evidence pointing to the existence of an unknown, highly advanced culture which was the precursor to the earliest known civilizations. There must have been a Civilization One.

Hard facts that change history for ever:

• The builders of the Stone Age monuments of the British Isles used a unit of length that was defined to one ten-thousandth of a millimetre

• That unit is fundamental to the Sun, Moon and Earth

• The pound and the pint are derived from this prehistoric unit of length

• There are 366 degrees to an Earth circle, not 360

• The metre, kilo and litre were in use over 4,000 years before the French "invented" them

• The hour, minute and second were developed more than two millennia before Christ - from the movements of the Moon

• The further back in time all measurements are studied, the more they merge into one great system
