I'm always fascinatred by the stories of unexplained (pre-columbian) coins, stones, ruins, writings/inscriptions that have been found here in North America, such as old roman coins, the Kensington stone, Las Lunas stone, etc. Whether legitmate or not, these aritifacts certainly stir thought and debate.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a website that focuses on that kind of information?

Default Thank you, but...

Trudy,
Thanks for the reference, but what I'm looking for is less "Pre-Columbian" and more "unexplained". I'm looking for a site that focuses on objects that have surfaced in the Americas that originate from non-american civilizations and date before Columbus' voyages. In other words, unexplainable in terms of common "European discovery" (i.e. 1492) beliefs.

There claims on the net but to first be able to discuss any particular claim, we have to know whether it is real or hoax.

I think you'll find that on bogusartifacts.com.

You might want to check out [URL="http://www.carvedinstone.us"]www.carvedinstone.us[/URL] It is a fairly recent site, but contains information about a number of pre-columbian sites in North America.

All that stuff was planted by pranksters. Some archeologist went out their way to make them appear legitimate.
