The programme had created the impression that he was an intellectual fraudster who had put forward half baked theories and ideas in bad faith, and that he was incompetent to defend his own arguments.
Adjudication: [The Commission] finds no unfairness to Mr Hancock in these matters.
Yeah The olmecs are still an inigma, and modern archaeologists and social anthropologists still have nothing more than a vauge idea of what they were all about.
now you may think that there are all kinds of structures that have vague similarities with things overseas and you'd be right
but a vague similarity is not proof of anything except a vague similarity

One queen (Hatsheput) went on a river boat cruise down the nile to the land of punt and was so impressed by her ability that she had her tomb decorated with pictures of her greatest achievement
on the one occaison that the egyptians did actually go out to sea they had to hire the phoenecians to sail them around africa
The egyptians you can be sure if they had been in trade with anywhere that we don't know about can only have been doing it with the help of aliens from the planet vulcan
wheres the evidence
without any evidence you have no facts
and without any facts you have just your imagination
so you might as well just make it up as you go along
oh silly me
thats what you were doing
please carry on
The Vikings were the first real European explorers. From their Scandinavian homeland, they explored the rivers of western Russia and Europe and sailed as far south as the Mediterranean Sea, north Africa and on to what is now Israel. They were also the first Europeans to travel westward beyond the horizon and onto North America. Since they were very practical people, the Vikings based their navigation skills on knowledge gained from many years of sailing. They knew about prevailing winds and where these steady winds would take them. They could identify where they were by the type of seaweed floating on the ocean, the types of seabirds flying overhead and the presence of whales and other sea animals. During expeditions that took them out of sight of land, the Vikings released captured seabirds and ravens and watched the directions in which they flew to find land and then followed them. If the seabirds returned to the ship, it was a sign that land was still far off. There are also accounts of the Vikings using the colour of seafloor mud samples raised on sinkers to help them determine where they were.
a Phoenician expedition sent down the Red Sea by pharaoh Necho II of Egypt (c. 600 BC) even circumnavigated Africa and returned through the Pillars of Hercules in three years.
