I've searched high and low and you can say I can dig up some pretty good information on people fairly easily but David William Davenport has only
submitted a few research papers about war, WW2 weapons, and helicopters. I'm assuming that's not him.
This is apparently him (on the left)
Interestingly, the date "2000 B.C." conflicts with a few that range anywhere from 2000BC to 6000BC.
Now, what I had also done is searched by the book title and found absolutely nothing but references to it. It was allegedly written in 1979 and
possibly published in Milan, Italy. Naturally I thought to search the publishing registry for this location and found this link:
Which when search, yields no results. Perhaps it's too old to be listed? I don't believe it because it's specifically an archaeological website.
- Only references are made to these papers or book
- No papers or book has been found
- The Archaeological library has nothing (at least online, and I don't know Italian to confirm this)
- David William Davenport may or may not be a fictional character / pen-name
- Dates tend to differ for when such event may have happened by thousands of years
- There's no official website as far as I can tell
- Searching by date, relevance, author, and book/papers yield no official result
- The archeological community isn't all over this like Paula Deen and Hot butter.
trying to debunk this but I find it very puzzling that such an important discovery seems to be left in the dark. At any rate, has
anyone considered the possibility of a highly-radioactive asteroid or something of that nature?
