This fourth edition includes the 26 page Epilog of updated and new Information in the second edition. It is bacicly the same book with minor layout changes to meet the Create Space requirements. The major question the book answers is: Was there a booming international copper trade in North America four thousand five hundred years ago? If so, who was doing it? Many of you history buffs and students of Ancient American History, Anthropology, Archeology, and Native American Studies may never have heard of the Ancient Copper Mines of Lake Superior. Yet for the last 500 years since Columbus "discovered" the New World, controversy has raged. Was he the first? Now, of course, we know he was not. But old habits don't change easily or quickly.
The Newberry Tablet
The Newberry Tablet like the artifacts above provide the proof for the premis in the book. There was a trading partner with the Ancient Copper Culture or complex that was mining copper on Lake Superior 4000 years ago. This tablet, that was found in Newberry Michigan in 1896 and photographed at that time, is written in a Cyrpriot/Minoan Syllabary. This book lays out a proof for a new Ancient American History.
Shown on the left are two photes of artifacts, from the Lake Superior area. The first on the left is called a dolman. In the book we have named it the Sawbill Landing Dolman. It is a large stone placed on three smaller stones and is located deep in the Boundary Waters Wilderness in Northern Minnesota. It marks the crossing of the divide between the Saint Lawerence River drainage and the Hudson Bay drainage. It is about 4 feet high and would have required a large crew to set it.
The second photo shows a symbol carved in bed rock on the Canadian shore of Lake Superior. It was used to determine what day was the Equinox. It can still be used today. The Cree language has a very similar sign, but it has a sun in the top half and a moon in the bottom half.
The copper snake was found in the Nippissing Beaches just west of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont. Canada
