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 harbor underwater in the Bahamas, Easter Island’s cultural connections with pre-modern Japan, and voyagers to Maine from Stone Age Scotland.

Unearthing Ancient America contains a wealth of fresh, occasionally suppressed evidence documenting the tremendous impact made on our continent by overseas visitors hundreds and even thousands of years before Columbus. The disclosures presented here re-write the prehistory of our country and provide a dramatic panorama of the past you never imagined before.

The distinguished list of contributing writers to Unearthing Ancient America includes:

  • Wayne May, founder and publisher of Ancient American magazine
  • Gunnar Thompson, PhD, 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.

    Nominated by Japan’s Savant Society as Professor of World Archaeology, Frank Joseph is a veteran scuba diver and participant in hundreds of underwater expeditions off the coast of Africa, in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, the Gulf of Mexico, and Polynesia. The editor-in-chief of Ancient American magazine from 1993 to 2007, he has traveled the world collecting research materials for his 27 published books.
