Echoes of the Old Darkland is the first original book by Dr. Charles S. Finch III in which the author attempts to trace origin and the evolution of humanity, is culture, myths, and religion in Africa in light of modern findings.
'Echoes of the Old Darkland is a significant contribution to scientific and cultural understanding of humanity’s African origins. Among the many intriguing chapters, one in particular focuses on the multiple personalities of ancient matriarchal Goddesses and Finch’s persuasive conclusions will have me contemplating his findings for the rest of my life! Demonstrating through iconography and exemplary research, he presents the incestuous and destructive tendencies of our earliest ancestors along with their earthly wisdom connected to the cosmos. That cosmology is notably in mythic form. An example: the idea of land rejuvenation associating the belief in resurrection, which is a foundational element of Christianity. Readers desiring rational expertise in learning about African culture and origins, this book is a must read'.
