The Secrets of Ancient America is an incredible book. It is a must read for any American interested in occupants of our continent long before Christopher Columbus. This is not a theory, it is a fact. In the beginning of the book Carl explains that the people of Columbus’s time did not think that the earth was flat. This was an invention of the nineteenth century. The Egyptian- Greek scientist Eratosthenes had already established the circumference and diameter of the earth in the third century BC. Columbus would have had access to ancient Viking and Arab maritime maps; he knew how much food to take, etc. Then he tells the stories of the Phoenicians and the copper mines of Isle Royale, The Crespi Caves of Ecuador, Roman Coins found throughout the Americas, Hebrew inscriptions, Celtic and Norse runes, Shiva linga, Egyptian Hieroglyphs even Chinese and Japanese influences. The reader is left with little doubt that there were visitors here from many cultures and their level of understanding of the Cosmos was vast. There are over 300 pictures that show these solar picture shows that are expertly mapped out on the walls of caves and flat surfaces on the solstices and equinoxes. Like the ones at the Anubis Caves. All in all one of the best books I have read on the subject matter. My hat is off to the work that Carl Lehrburger has done with this book. Fantastic!!
