It is the year 4022; all of the ancient country of Usa has been buried under many feet of detritus from a catastrophe that occurred back in 1985. Imagine, then, the excitement that Howard Carson, an amateur archeologist at best, experienced when in crossing the perimeter of an abandoned excavation site he felt the ground give way beneath him and found himself at the bottom of a shaft, which, judging from the DO NOT DISTURB sign hanging from an archaic doorknob, was clearly the entrance to a still-sealed burial chamber. Carson's incredible discoveries, including the remains of two bodies, one of then on a ceremonial bed facing an altar that appeared to be a means of communicating with the Gods and the other lying in a porcelain sarcophagus in the Inner Chamber, permitted him to piece together the whole fabric of that extraordinary civilization.

While digging out a new basement near Los Angeles, homeowners accidentally unearth a 3,000-year-old Phoenician altar. A treasure-hunter in Ohio finds more than he expected, when his metal detector locates an Eastern Mediterranean pendant from 1000 bc. Two caches of coins minted in Imperial Rome surface along the Ohio River. A Smithsonian Institution archaeologist excavating a Native American burial mound in Tennessee removes a stone emblazoned with a second century Hebrew inscription. These are just a few of the dramatic finds described in The Lost Worlds of Ancient America. They confirm that our continent was visited and influenced by visitors from Europe and the Near East hundreds, even thousands of years before its "official" discovery in 1492. As such, this startling, fresh proof of their powerful impact on the pre-Columbian New World offers us a different view of American origins that threatens to re-write mainstream textbooks. More than two dozen noted academics, researchers, and writers have contributed to this myth-shattering volume, including: Scott Wolter, a university-trained geologist, construction analysis company president, and author of The Hooked X, showcased on The History Channel; Dr. John J. White, editor emeritus of the Midwestern Epigraphic Society's quarterly Journal; J.M. Allen, a former air-photo interpreter for Britain's Royal Air Force; Bruce Scofield, PhD, a world-class authority on Aztec astrology; Dr. Arlan Andrews, Sr., a registered professional engineer with a 40-year career at White Sands Missile Range, AT&T Bell Labs, and the White House Science Office; Wayne May, founder and publisher of Ancient American magazine.

There are more than 20,000 islands in the Pacific; fewer than half of them are inhabited. Some are too small or too barren to sustain human life, others are subject to the vagaries of the tides or without fresh water. But many uninhabited Pacific islands have supported life, and been home to Pacific island cultures and societies only to disappear seemingly in an instant--the so-called Mystery Islands. Tom Koppel's personal odyssey across a vast ocean and through time explores new theories and discoveries surrounding life throughout the Pacific. From celestial navigation and the sweep of the ocean currents, the hardships of survival and settlement, to the rich tapestry of Pacific Island customs and traditions, Mystery Islands shows how new archaeological findings have changed our entire of when and how the Pacific islands were first discovered and settled, beginning over 3,000 years ago.

What was the Minotaur? Did a Welsh prince discover America? Did Robin Hood really exist? How does the Star of Bethlehem fit into the science of astronomy? Is the Vinland Map a fake? Can archaeologists use spirit messages to guide their work? For centuries, philosophers, scientists, and charlatans have attempted to decipher the baffling mysteries of our past, from the Stonehenge to the lost continent of Atlantis. Today, however, DNA testing, radiocarbon dating, and other cutting-edge investigative tools, together with a healthy dose of common sense, are guiding us closer to the truth. Peter James and Nick Thorpe, the professional historian and archaeologist team who created the acclaimed Ancient Inventions, now tackle these age-old conundrums, presenting the latest information from the scientific community--and the most startling challenges to traditional explanations of mysteries such as: - The rise and fall of the Maya - A lost cache of Dead Sea Scrolls - The curse of Tutankhamun - The devastation of Sodom and Gomorrah - The Nazca Lines These true mystery stories twist and turn like a good whodunit, as James and Thorpe present the evidence for and against the expert theories, shedding new light on humankind's age-old struggle to make sense of the past. The authors also make dramatic contributions of their own to the fray, demonstrating persuasively that cataustrophic events--including the collisions of comets with the Earth long ago--could explain puzzles that have baffled experts for centuries. Ancient Mysteries will entertain and enlighten, delight the curious and inform the serious. From the Hardcover edition.

The gripping tale of the discovery of the Rosetta Stone, the artifact that opened up ancient Egypt and triggered a struggle for cultural supremacy. One fateful day in 1799, a unit of French army engineers made a discovery that opened the floodgates of history, rousing the gods of the Nile after two thousand years. In a crumbling castle on the banks of the Nile, the engineers found an unusual chunk of dark, chiseled debris. It was the Rosetta Stone, and it would change civilization forever. Discovery of Rosetta is the first book to tell the story of the Rosetta Stone—how it fell into British hands, the battle over who would be the first to successfully decipher it, and how it came to sit where it is today, in the British Museum. The Rosetta Stone is much more than a rock—it is the key to an ancient civilization and a modern symbol of human discovery, conquest, and scholarship.
