Starting in 1890 and continuing for the next 30 years, over 3,000 artifacts containing Egyptian, Greek, and cuniform symbols, were discovered in 17 Michigan counties. Could this mean that ancient Egyptians, Hebrews, and early Christians actually settled in the Americas long before Columbus arrived in the “New World.”
They are real artifacts. But of what ? A lost people? Or of the largest archeological fraud in North America? Watch and learn about the Michigan history you never knew. At Sound Post we worked with Thom Bell to provide audio post production and mixing for this amazing documentary. Thom will be at tonight’s screening to answer questions.
