Lost Cities-AnMys-SWLost Cities and Ancient Mysteries of the Southwest by David Hatcher Childress is an important historical work on the influences of ancient Egypt and Rome on the Southwest and Mexico. Childress provides important archeologic findings which support his theories. In addition, the work has many pictures of the historical findings which will provide the basis for much conversation.

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.

Lost Cities and Ancient Mysteries of the Southwest is a well researched historical research resource which integrates ancient Roman and Egyptian influences in an interesting presentation which will fascinate readers. The work will appeal to a large constituency of historians, archeologists, astronomers and scientific researchers everywhere.
