I am on Twitter and Facebook (as time permits): @RobertSchochPhD

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 was released in 2021.)

Promo for two important books by Robert Schoch

Forgotten Civilization, En español!

The 2nd (updated & expanded) edition of Forgotten Civilization is now available in English and Spanish! I hope you have also enjoyed Origins of the Sphinx.

The Giza Pyramids Cap Lightning Strikes!

My wife Katie made another remarkable observation: the Giza Pyramids appear to cap ancient and massive lightning strikes. This adds to my years of research regarding solar outbursts circa 9700 BCE.

Promo for Schoch and Ulissey article regarding the ancient burial of Egypt

The Ancient Burial of Egypt?

In this article Katie and I question whether or not Egypt, in ancient times, might have been intentionally buried – in similar fashion to Göbekli Tepe.

Promo for Robert Schoch's article on SIDA, a Solar-Induced Dark Age

Rising from the Ashes of SIDA [Solar-Induced Dark Age]

This short article summarizes some of my recent research. I hope you enjoy it.

Promo for Schoch and Ulissey children's book: Adriana's Ancient Mysteries: 
					The Great Sphinx

Our Children's Series

For inquisitive children and (perhaps more so) for adults young at heart. Available in German and Italian (we hope to find an English-language publisher soon).

Promo for the Memes page of the Robert Schoch website

Memes, Morsels, and More...

For those who may have missed these on our social media pages, and for those who like pictures with minimal text... some memes.

Promo for new documentary that is in the works

Documentary in the Works

Katie and I, with the not-for-profit ORACUL, are working on a new documentary regarding the antiquity of civilization. This trailer incorporates shots from our Jan. 2020 trip to Turkey.

Promo for Robert Schoch's tribute to his friend John Anthony West

A Tribute to My Friend

Decades ago I met a remarkable man, John Anthony West. We shared journeys both terrestrial & intellectual, and our work together in the early 1990s changed the course of my life. He is gone, & I miss him.

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.

Small banner for Robert Schoch's new article regarding the writing at Göbekli Tepe

The Writing at Göbekli Tepe...

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

Promo for Catherine Ulissey's article regarding Earth entering the 
					Age of Aquarius

Does Aquarius Pour Fire?

Katie's first published article. And be sure not to miss her important postscripts at the bottom, including what might cause recurring (predictable) catastrophe to our solar system.


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.
