Frank Joseph

While digging out a new basement near Los Angeles, homeowners accidentally unearthed a 3000-year-old Phoenician altar; a treasure hunter in Ohio found more than he expected when his metal detector located an Eastern Mediterranean pendant from 1000 BC; two caches of coins minted in Imperial Rome surfaced along the Ohio River; a Smithsonian Institution archaeologist excavating a Native American burial mound in Tennessee removed a stone emblazoned with a second-century Hebrew inscription. These are just a few of the dramatic finds described in this book. 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. 6X9 P/B, 288 pp., Illus. $15.95
