    The Lost ColoniesThe Lost Colonies of Ancient America: The Pre-Columbian Visitors Who Discovered America

    By Frank Joseph. Was America truly unknown to the outside world until Christopher Columbus “discovered” it in 1492?

    Could a people gifted enough to raise the Great Pyramid more than 4,400 years ago have lacked the skills necessary to build a ship capable of crossing the Atlantic?

    Did the Phoenicians, who circumnavigated the African continent in 600 B.C., never consider sailing west?

    Were the Vikings terrified at the prospect of a transoceanic voyage? If so, how are we to account for an Egyptian temple accidentally unearthed by Tennessee Valley Authority workers in 1935?

    What is a beautifully crafted metal plate with the image of a Phoenician woman doing in the Utah desert?

    And who can explain the discovery of Viking houses and wharves excavated outside of Boston?

    These enigmas are but a tiny fraction of the abundant physical proof for Old World visitors to our continent thousands and thousands of years ago.

    In addition, Sumerians, Minoans, Romans, Celts, ancient Hebrews, Indonesians, Africans, Chinese, Japanese, Welsh, Irish and the Knights Templar all made their indelible, if neglected, mark on our land.

    The author is a veteran scuba diver and participant in hundreds of underwater expeditions around the world. 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.
