The History of the Americas Is Not What We've Been Told
Let me just mention a few data points that show that there was contact between the Bronze Age civilizations and the Americas. Some may be explained by a common mother civilization, but other things make it clear that people were sailing across the world in ancient times. Corn and cocaine are found in analysis of Egyptian mummies. The tin they used in bronze appears to have come from Bolivia. An enormous amount of copper was mined in Michigan, that is missing from the Americas, while all the copper used in the Bronze Age had no source in Eurasia. Egyptian customs are found in Native American tribes even today. The name of the Zuni (Native peoples of New Mexico) priesthood, Shi'wanikwe, means "people of Siwa", and they say their ancestors came from the west in boats. Egyptian tombs were found in the Grand Canyon, which was reported in an Arizona newspaper in 1909.Here's another article showing the similarity of pottery. I noticed right away how much the pottery of Siwa in the western desert of Egypt looks like pottery in the American Southwest.
Then there's the Piri Reis map found in 1513 that shows routes of navigating the globe, and actually *shows Antarctica without ice*. The ancient Greek historian Herodotus spoke of Egyptians going on a sailing trip that took three years, and coming back laden with exotic goods. Three years is the time it takes to sail around the world. This knowledge would have been a trade secret, so that the ancient mariners could have kept the route, and the treasures they found, to themselves.

So .. you have to ask yourself, what is so ridiculous about the idea that people sailed across the Atlantic a few thousand years ago? Ocean-going vessels have been found in Egypt. Why should researchers who talk about this be ridiculed, and evidence be ignored? It really shows you how things work in the academic world.
This is only a tiny taste of the enormous body of evidence that human presence in the Americas is much older than we are told, and that people came by sea rather than only across the Bering Strait. If you're still not convinced, read Frank Joseph's Survivors of Atlantis. Civilizations appeared suddenly in the Americas as they did in the Old World.
Another new piece of data that is being ignored by the major media outlets is the Paracas skulls. These elongated skulls from 3500 BC have features that no other human skulls have, that cannot be explained by cranial deformation. In any case, the DNA testing shows these are of Middle Eastern or European origin (h1 haplogroup): that right there is the smoking gun that proves that people from the "Old World" ended up in the Americas. The media refuses to cover this.

Graham Hancock says: "If we are missing a very big part of our story, then we don't know who we are. We are lost in the modern world. That's why I say it's grave responsibility to be an archaeology and to interpret the past and the present, because our ideas of who we are come from the story we've been told about that past."
