Robert M. Schoch


Dr. Robert Schoch has devoted his life to the study of Earth, its creatures, and, for over three decades, its most ancient civilizations. A full-time faculty member at Boston University since 1984, and Director of its Institute for the Study of the Origins of Civilization (ISOC), Dr. Schoch holds a B.A. (in Anthropology) and a B.S. (in Geology) from George Washington University, and M.S., M.Phil., and Ph.D. degrees in Geology and Geophysics from Yale University, among other distinctions. In the early 1990s, Dr. Schoch stunned the world with his revolutionary research that recast the date of the Great Sphinx of Egypt to a period thousands of years earlier than its standard attribution, and in doing so demonstrated that civilization’s history is older and greater than previously believed.

More recently, he has determined that enormous solar outbursts ended Earth’s last ice age, simultaneously decimating a previous high culture that flourished on the planet, as evidenced by the vast and megalithic Göbekli Tepe as well as other sites and monuments around the world. Dr. Schoch has appeared on numerous radio and television shows, Internet podcasts, and is the author, co-author, and/or editor of books both technical and popular, with his 2021 revised and expanded edition of “Forgotten Civilization” offering an overview of many of his more significant contributions.
