Ancient Egyptians in The Grand Canyon

Ancient Egyptians in the Grand Canyon

By David H. Childress

Did an Egyptian navy cross the Pacific or Atlantic and come to Arizona? Could they have left an Egyptian tomb in the Grand Canyon, something similar to those found in the Valley of Kings near Luxor, Egypt? Strangely, an article pub­lished on the front page of the Phoenix Gazette on April 5, 1909, claimed that just such an Egyptian rock-cut cave was found. While many mummies have been discovered in Egypt, very few were in pyramids—and those that were have been dated from the later…

What Happened to the Maya?

BY FRANK JOSEPH

Director Mel Gibson’s new movie Apacalypto purports to be a fictional story set in the time of the Mayas, though the film’s ending—showing Spanish ships arriving off the Mexican coast—seems to place the tale in the time of the Az­tecs, long after the Mayan civilization had vanished from the scene.

In fact, the remains of “coneheads” of various shapes…

Treasure of the Hollow Mountain

By David H. Childress

Near Hatch, New Mexico, is a mountain called Victorio Peak where in 1937 a half-Indian podiatrist (originally from Oklahoma), named Milton Ernest “Doc” Noss, discovered an astonishing cache of lost treasure on what is now the White Sands Missile Range. Much of the gold may have been Aztec, while other portions were purportedly from the lost La Rue mine that the Spanish had worked a hundred years before. Much of the treasure was in the form of stacked gold bars—hundreds of them—but there were other…
