LOST CIVILIZATIONS OF NORTH AMERICA: The Compelling Account of the Wanton Destruction of an Ancient
This DVD explores the fascinating world of ancient North America and why artifacts and evidences of advanced civilizations have been largely ignored and thousands of them lost. Archaeologists, historians, and anthropologists discuss the development of theories of cultural evolution. These theories influenced Manifest Destiny and Native American polices which lead to the "wanton destruction" of many great ancient structures, earthworks and artifacts. Many of the controversies that grew out of these conflicts continue to exist today.
The film explores these controversies, ranging from interpretation of remaining artifacts and structures to recent DNA research.
