Promo for Dr. Schoch's Boston University master class video trailer

In a Nutshell

This short trailer for a master class I gave at Boston University years ago offers the broadest strokes of my research. My book, Forgotten Civilization, offers much more. (The 2nd, revised & expanded, edition has been released!)

Screen capture from October 2020 of Robert Schoch Interview with Joe Rogan posted to YouTube

Rogan and Schoch

We thank Joe Rogan for the wonderful interview, seen on YouTube by close to 5 million people (as of Oct. 2020). Mr. Rogan has now moved to Spotify. The interview can still be viewed, but one must create an account first.

The Writing at Göbekli Tepe...

...brings together an ancient Anatolian script and cutting-edge plasma physics. (We follow the evidence where it leads.)

COVID forced a postponement in the tours I had arranged with my friend, colleague, and professional tour organizer, Grzegorz Poplawski. We are working to reschedule the trips for the near future. Please click here for more information.

Small banner for Robert Schoch's new Mehit article

She was a Lioness named Mehit –

...who guards an ancient archive! An article that supports my research of decades ago regarding a chamber beneath the Sphinx.

Promo for Schoch comments regarding comet versus Sun

Comet versus the Sun?

What really happened at the end of the last ice age? Accumulating evidence points to a major role for the Sun.


1) Although I have appeared on television programs and at conferences where the topic of "ancient aliens" has been a focus, I am personally not an advocate of this hypothesis. In my opinion, the known evidence points in other directions.

2) I have no connection to or association with the Robert Schoch Foundation.

3) Please note that a fair amount of "information" regarding me found on the Internet is simply incorrect. And please remember, Wikipedia in particular admittedly upholds the status quo. My research has been challenging the status quo for decades, which doesn't make me their favorite person.

4) I own two domains on the World Wide Web, and Others have purchased my name as a domain. I have no control over this, or what is posted on those sites. The Web is the ultimate experiment in free expression, and I understand this.

Again, thank you for your interest in my work.
