Kurzbeschreibung

The nursery rhyme begins, "In fourteen hundred and ninety two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue." Less well-known is the line that follows: "…to learn if the old maps were true." How can there be "old maps" of a land no one knew existed? Were others here before Columbus? What were their reasons for coming and what unexplained artifacts did they leave behind?
The oceans were highways to America rather than barriers, and when discoverers put ashore, they were greeted by unusual inhabitants. In Discovering the Mysteries of Ancient America, the author of The Atlantis Encyclopedia turns his sextant towards this hemisphere. Here is a collection of the most controversial articles selected from seventy issues of the infamous Ancient American magazine. They range from the discovery of Roman relics in Arizona and California's Chinese treasure, to Viking rune-stones in Minnesota and Oklahoma and the mysterious religions of ancient Americans. Many questions will be raised including:

What role did extraterrestrials have in the lives of ancient civilizations?

What ancient pyramids and towers tell us about the people who built them?

Are they some sort of portals to another dimension?

What prehistoric technologies have been discovered, and what can they tell us about early settlers, their religious beliefs, and possible other-worldly visitors?

Did El Dorado exist, and what of the legendary Fountain of Youth?

Was Atlantis in Cuba?

What are America’s lost races and what happened to them?

Discovering the Mysteries of Ancient America brings to the fore the once-hidden true past of America’s earliest civilizations

Synopsis

Unravelling the once-hidden true past of America's earliest civilisations, with contributions from, amongst others, Zecharia Sitchin and Andrew Collins. The nursery rhyme begins, "In fourteen hundred and ninety two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue." Less well-known is the line that follows: "...to learn if the old maps were true". How can there be "old maps" of a land no one knew existed? Were others here before Columbus and what unexplained artefacts did they leave behind? The oceans were highways to America rather than barriers and when discoverers put ashore, unusual inhabitants greeted them. In "Discovering the Mysteries of Ancient America", the author of "The Atlantis Encyclopedia" turns his sextant towards this hemisphere. Here is a collection of the most controversial articles selected from seventy issues of the infamous "Ancient American" magazine. They range from the discovery of Roman relics in Arizona and California's Chinese treasure, to Viking rune-stones in Minnesota and Oklahoma and the mysterious religions of ancient Americans. Many questions will be raised including: What role did extraterrestrials have in the lives of ancient civilisations?

What prehistoric technologies have been discovered, and what can they tell us about early settlers, their religious beliefs and possible otherworldly visitors? Did El Dorado exist, and what of the legendary Fountain of Youth? Was Atlantis in Cuba? What are America's lost races and what happened to them?

5.0 von 5 Sternen The real early discoverers of America 28. April 2006
Von D. Donovan, Editor/Sr. Reviewer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Everyone knows Columbus discovered America - but in fact he owned and worked from charts of the region drawn by Viking explorers hundreds of years before he was born - and they in turn were preceded by Irish missionaries, shipwrecked Romans and others. DISCOVERING THE MYSTERIES OF ANCIENT AMERICA: LOST HISTORY AND LEGENDS, UNEARTHED AND EXPLORED gathers all these accounts, using the articles from Ancient American magazine to assemble some documented discoveries which are real puzzlers. Most have not been closely examined and certainly not under one cover, in a place convenient for contrast and discussion.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Be Realistic In Your Analysis... 24. Mai 2006
Von GeoKeith - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Childress' book cites numerous known abberations to the common perception that most relics and antiquities found in North America are of "native" cultural origin, and having these bits all in one place in one book is useful and entertaining. However, the speculation on aliens, portals, and Atlantis-type culture is, as always, tedious. Anyone can speculate and it is a writer's choice on how he or she chooses to speculate. The reader ,however, must be realistic in their analysis and truth behind the writer's speculation. If it is for entertainment purposes, the book and its speculations are wothwhile; if it is for actual information, the book is worth the price to read about the additional relics that have been found in North America that can really question our prevalent interpretations of North American history - however, the speculation on aliens and such is just that...entertainment value only. Early Mankind was a lot more innovative and flexible than people like Childress give them credit for - no use of aliens and portals is necessary to explain the historical evidence that is apparent in the antiquities record.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting and full of information 8. November 2011
Von Walter E. Kurtz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The book is not really a book but a collection of articles from a magazine called North American. The book was a gift and I didn't know what to expect from it. I thought it will be about Atlantis and UFOs. I was pleasantly surprised.

The book is not about Atlantis (only one article mentions it) and there are no UFOs in it or any other weird stuff. The articles argue that the two American continents were visited in the past by old civilizations long before Columbus sailed on his first voyage.

Evidence is offered that Americas were visited as early as ancient Egypt. The writers try to prove it by discussing various artifacts found on American soil, ancient legends, Native American culture and existence of corn (an American plant) in Europe and Asia long before it was imported by the Spanish.

I must say that after reading the book I am still not completely sold on the idea of ancient contacts, but at the same time I would not be surprised if it turned out to be true. The writers spend a lot of space and ink describing how the historical/archeological establishment is deeply conservative and all evidence of pre-Columbian presence in the Americas is dismissed as a hoax or ignored without any serious research.

From my personal experience and from other readings, I can testify to the conservatism of the mainstream academic establishment. Among the academia, once a certain theory is accepted as fact, it becomes almost sacred dogma. The theory then persists until evidence against it becomes so overwhelming that it simply cannot be accepted anymore.

Just take the case of the Vikings. For centuries historians rejected the idea that Vikings landed in North America despite the fact that they had colonies in Greenland and legends about sailing to the land beyond the ocean. It was only after an abundance of Viking artifacts was unearthed in Canada and United States that the establishment had to grudgingly accept that the Spanish were not the first Europeans to reach America.

If they were wrong about Vikings, maybe they are wrong about other things too?

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good Short Summary Compilation 25. April 2008
Von Stephen Rice - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a fairly decent book in some ways and one to take with a big laugh in others. I've certainly read worse though. Most of it is review for me since I've read most of the authors mentioned here in more detail and most of the information was not new to me. Overall the feel for the book is rather one sided. For example, some of the latter stories regarding ancient findings of artifacts and one in particular about an oil lamp that was found in a yard in Ohio strongly lead the reader to believe that the oil lamp that was found by this gentleman has been there since ancient times never mentioning the fact that due to the masses of peoples populating the USA that it is more likely that the lamp was in fact brought here and discarded by a settler rather than laying there in someone's yard waiting to be found for thousands of years. Why it is easier to believe that the lamp lay there undisturbed in the ground all by itself with nothing else anything like it found before or since in the same area is beyond me.

The idea that the lamp could quite easily be explained by another reason as simple as a theory that maybe the man that found it made it all up and put it there himself after buying it in a garage sale is never brought forward. In other words this is not proof at all for the ancients being in America but just another of many unverifiable stories that may as well sit along side the big foot, UFO/USO and big bird stories in other books. Frankly I'm surprised this and some other stories like it were even used because they do not show very much in the way of intelligent study of the findings but in fact bring the book down a notch to that approaching a tabloid magazine article.

There are more stories like this in the book that are strongly one sided never mentioning the pros and the cons of the view point or other educated alternative perceptions as to the origins of some of the findings but there are more than one that show a quick wit to shun and look down on the acedemic society for how they do things. Ironic isn't it?

In short this book is entertaining reading so long as you take each story with a grain of salt so to speak. I will say that Discovering the Mysteries of Ancient America is not of the calipre of Forbidden Archaeology by any stretch of the imagination. If you want real in depth study of this subject that would be the book to buy I think. This book would be a good precursor to that one though to warm you up to the things you will learn in it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great articles help uncover the truth! 25. Juli 2008
Von Sly Fox - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Anyone who has more than a passing interest in the real truth of what has actually been dug up by archaeologists & anthropologists for hundreds of years all around the world, should add this book to their collection. It combines articles from various authors and gives a straight-forward, non-technical look at what experts like Dr. Virginia Steen-McIntyre have been proving for years, that there were great civilizations that have existed on earth for thousands of years, long before the so-called "main stream scientific experts" allow to be disseminated to the general public.
I see lots of reviews of books like this one, with uninformed neophytes claiming "how can someone take fables and pass them off as truth". While these same reviewers will spout Bible rhetoric and try to convince everyone that the Bible is truth, but nothing else is. Well, if you can believe in the Bible myth why not Atlantis and the like. Sorry Bible thumpers, but it's pure hypocrisy and you know it.
This is a great book, with honest and true facts and if you don't want to know about the world of the past don't by it.
