Did ancient Native Americans live among pterodactyls and did they paint the image of one of those prehistoric beasts in Black Dragon Canyon in Utah? If not pterodactyls, did ancient Native Americans interact with travelers from outer space and produce rock art depicting these extraterrestrial alien visitors to America in antiquity? Did ancient Jewish visitors to the New World leave a message etched onto a stone surface in New Mexico? Have archaeologists discovered the remnants of a far-western outpost of ancient Egyptian civilization in, of all places, southern California? In this lecture, Ken Feder, Central Connecticut State University Professor of Archaeology, will discuss these claims of a hidden history that appear in my book Archaeological Oddities: A Field Guide to Forty Claims of Lost Civilizations, Ancient Visitors, and Other Strange Sites in North America.
