Description

"Dr. Barry Fell, and Emeritus Professor at Harvard, documents trans Atlantic Old World incursions with much fresh evidence of Libyan, Carthaginian, Celtic, Greek, Roman, and Viking presences on the east Coast. But even more extraordinary is his documentation of pre Columbian Europeans and North Africans in the far West. Graeco Libyans, Dr. Fell demonstrates, used their sophisticated navigational skills to cross the Indian and Pacific Oceans to reach and settle in California and Nevada from the third centruey B.C. Their inscriptions, in the form of petroglyphs, have been carefully recorded in the past by scholars, but until Dr. Fell translated them, their significance was a matter of mystified conjecture, and they were ascribed vaguely to some lost Indian culture... Dr. Fell describes how Thomas Jefferson had suspected a relationship between some American Indian and North African languages. In Jefferson's spirit, Fell pursued his researches in North Africa and found astounding confirmation of his discoveries, both in complementary documentation and in the enthusiastic recognition by North African scholars."
