It has long been taken for granted that the first Euopean visitors to American shores either sailed with Columbus in 1492, or with Norsemen like Leif Erikson a full five centuries earlier. But the history of America before that date has remained, so far, lost in native Indian legends.
Now Harvard Professor Barry Fell has uncovered evidence, including astonishing new discoveries, to replace those legends with myth-shattering fact. Illuminating, authoritative and enhanced with over 1000 pictures, AMERICA B.C. describes ancient European temple inscriptions from New England and the Midwest that date as far back as 800 B.C. Professor Fell examines the phallic and other sexually oriented structures, found in our own country, that reveal the beliefs of ancient Celtic fertility cults --- cults that were virtually destroyed in Europe in early Christian times. Further evidence haas been found in the tombs of kings and chiefs, in the form of steles --- written testimonies of grief carved in stone.
