The same genius Sir Isaac Newton applied to other disciplines, he also brings to bear on ancient history in this landmark book. Newton develops a sound chronology using the scientific method based on logic, observations, astronomy, and common sense.


When you think of Sir Isaac Newton, you normally think of a great scientist and mathematician. His contributions to these areas of human knowledge are enormous. The same genius he applies to other disciplines, Newton also brings to bear on ancient history. Like a first rate defense attorney, Newton cross-examines the ancient writers, using their own words against them to expose their logical inconsistencies. He then develops a more sound chronology using the scientific method based on logic, observations, astronomy, and just plain common sense.

Newton worked on this project for over forty years, but it was not published until 1728, a year after he died. Master Books is republishing this landmark book in a format and style suitable for today’s readers, and most of secular ancient history before 700 BC will need drastic revision in the light of Newton’s detailed findings.

  • Contains diagrams of Solomon’s Temple
  • Critical analysis and investigation of historical sources
  • Re-visits the chronologies of early and major civilizations
  • Exposes the errors and exaggerations still commonly taken as fact today
