They prophesised that this destruction will be preceded by a series of natural disasters, including earthquakes and floods. Does this sound familiar? What will this mean for us? Should we take seriously their claims that this will be a time of apocalyptic cataclysm?

These are just some of the questions posed by Adrian Gilbert, co-author of the international bestseller "The Mayan Prophecies". In "The End of Time", he revisits the ancient archaeological sites of the Maya and makes astonishing new discoveries about their cosmology.

And, in case, an apocalyptic event really is upon us, the author offers tips for survival.
