For instance, a Mayan bridge at Yaxchilan and Roman artifacts were found in Tucson, Arizona. Between 2000BC and 500BC, the Phoenicians were believed to control the world with traces of their influence in South America, Mexico, the Southwest, the Caribbean and South Africa according to researchers. The Ajo Museum contains Egyptian carved stone in Mexico.
Childress documents that a mummy was found in the Grand Canyon according to a Phoenix Gazette article dated April 5, 1909. In addition, an Egyptian tomb in the Grand Canyon suggests that the ancients migrated there from the Orient. The Caracol Tower at Chichen Itza was thought to be an astronomical observatory. In addition, the Tohono O’odham Reservation is the site of previously undiscovered mines and Aztec treasures at the site of a mountain cave under Montezuma’s head.
