* 8th Annual AAPS Conference on Ancient America
Holiday Inn, Marquette Michigan, Sept 21-23th, 2012"Educate and inform the whole mass of the people...
They are the only sure reliance for the preservation
of our liberty." ~ Thomas Jefferson................................................................................................................................................................................Listing of links for growing evidence of pre-Columbus contacts with the AmericasThis is a summary of several links to show that ancient trans-oceanic travels were possible based on new findings that have increased the scholarly scope of thinking about what ancient peoples have actually done. The information on Colorado - Oklahoma - New Mexico inscriptions and other associated research on Old Negev writing is towards the end.
One of the old criticisms was that Bronze Age people did not have enough "knowledge" to do much in the way of sailing the high seas. A recent find of a 3000-year-old shipwreck off the coast of Britain shows that long-distance sea trade thrived in Bronze Age between various parts of northern Europe and the Mediterranean:
These next few links show new findings that the Romans and Chinese sailed in early days to India (which previously was never thought possible) and that the ancient Indians also were able to sail the oceans:

PERU SITE WITH POSSIBLE ANCIENT SABAEN INSCRIPTIONS (MIDDLE EAST WRITING)
ANCIENT CUNEIFORM OF MIDDLE EAST FOUND ON BOLIVIA - PERU BORDER:
This cuneiform is similar to that found in ancient Mesopotamia (Babylon), Assyria, and Lebanon:
Some scholars believe that some early portions of the Biblical book of Genesis were first recorded in cuneiform, given the linguistic style of these certain portions that is different from the rest of Genesis (and matches up more to the linguistic style of nearby cuneiform writings). There are several other places where they have found these types of bowls and items in South America. Most traditional archaeologists don't want to pay any attention to this!
THE "OLD NEGEV" TYPE OF WRITING IN THE COLORADO - OKLAHOMA AREAS:
There was some initial research done by a professor, Dr Weisendanger, of the University of Tulsa in the 1940s and 1950s on sites in the Oklahoma Panhandle, and below are some online articles about past work done there on these "pecked" inscriptions. Be aware that these are rather large files and may take awhile to download. Original article on this research done in the late 1940s with photo (see page 28)

DATING OF ROCK PATINA IN PETROGLYPHS:
Professor Ron Dorn did some dating of this area in the 1980s. Bill McGlone did some work with Professor Dorn in that very area, apparently in the 1980s and early 1990s.
http://alliance.la.asu.edu/dorn/VarnishPages/RockCoatingsWeb/DesertRockCoatings.htmlThe practice of patina dating is explained here:

http://www.ou.edu/cas/archsur/pdffiles/BlackMesaFinalReport.pdfNote the dating of some carbon and deposits in places that go back to beyond 3000 years before the present. That matches up to what some other researchers have found that the dating of the patina on the Semitic-type of writings in the Pergatoire River and nearby areas. Professor Ron Dorn did some dating of this area in the 1980s.

MINERAL RESOURCES FOR METALS (AND FOR IRON TOOLS TO CHIP INTO THE ROCK SURFACES)
There seems to be an abundance of iron ore, along with copper and perhaps other metals. In the northern part of the OK Panhandle and across the border into Colorado, gold has also been found. With these sources of metals and fuels, such as coal, the ancient peoples there could have easily made iron tools and implements, most of which are probably buried under some amount of soil by now. The iron could have been made into a type of chisel to make the "pecked" type of inscriptions. There are clay and other materials to make bricks or other types of building materials, perhaps adobe type of materials. There is a thin coal seam contained in the Purgatoire Formation of the Cretaceous era, above the Morrison Formation and below the Dakota Formation. It outcrops in areas of western Cimarron County. This coal-bearing formation is above the copper-bearing formation of the Sheep Pen Sandstone, and right below that is the greenish-colored formation, the Sloan Canyon Formation that many early settlers in the 1900s mistook for holding copper. The Purgatoire also has fire clay that could have been used in smelting operations. There are some outcrops along the Cimarron River, and pieces of fossilized trees have also been found.
