Adrian Gilbert attended St. Edmunds College, one of the oldest post-reformation, Catholic boarding schools in Britain. He then attended the University of Kent at Canterbury for an Honours degree in Chemistry. Once there he very quickly realized that philosophically speaking, modern science is founded on quicksand. This only sharpened his appetite for the ultimate knowledge: to know who we are, where we come from and what is our purpose in life.
In quest of the answers to these burning questions, he became more and more interested in philosophy and eastern religions. Following a profound mystical experience, he lost what little interest he still had in Natural Science. His life is now totally focused on finding practical techniques for self-transformation. In 1992 Adrian met up with Robert Bauval and together they wrote what was to become an international bestseller: "The Orion Mystery." This was followed by "The Mayan Prophecies," "Magic "The Holy Kingdom," and, most recently "Signs in the Sky."
