UNEARTHING ANCIENT AMERICA
The Lost Sagas of Conquerors, Castaways, and Scoundrels
4 in stock
Contains a wealth of fresh, occasionally suppressed evidence documenting the tremendous impact made in North America by overseas visitors hundreds and even thousands of years before Columbus.
Does Colorado’s Grand Canyon hide an ancient city found by a Smithsonian Institution photographer? Did the Vikings beat Columbus to the New World using a fiber-optic navigational instrument? Who built a colossal water reservoir in Iowa long before the first European settlers arrived? What secret have the “Giants of the California Desert” preserved for more than a thousand years?
These are just some of the intriguing questions posed and answered by expert researchers in UNEARTHING ANCIENT AMERICA. They go on to tackle a broad variety of archaeological enigmas, shunned as too heretical for consideration by conventional scholars – a Roman figurine found off the New Jersey coast, North African gold in Illinois from a long-vanished kingdom, an Egyptian knife removed from a centuries-old tree in California, a fifth century Christian church in Connecticut, a prehistoric harbour underwater in the Bahamas, Easter Island’s cultural connections with pre-modern Japan and voyagers to Maine from Stone Age Scotland.
The distinguished list of contributing writers to UNEARTHING ANCIENT AMERICA includes: Wayne May, founder and publisher of Ancient American magazine; Gunnar Thompson, author of American Discovery; Nobuhiro Yoshida, language professor from the University of Kyushu; William Donato, the world’s leading authority on the “Bimini Road”; David Hatcher Childress, founder of The World Explorers Club and head of Adventures Unlimited Press.
