Commentary: Suppressed Archaeology (Part One)
Martin G. Collins
Given 20-Jun-15; 11 minutes
Martin Collins, reflecting on the old limerick about Columbus sailing the ocean blue, focusing upon the second almost-forgotten line, "to learn if the old maps were true," indicates that many explorations may have taken place to the western northern hemisphere by a technologically advanced people, distinct from the Native Americans. The technological advanced folk were tall of stature, wore full armor and had the ability to construct mounds containing graves and records of their settlements or civilization. Several groups have questioned the bias of the Smithsonian Institute for suppressing records of pre-Columbus exploration, probably in an effort to maintain John Wesley Powell's attempt to lionize the contributions of the Native American culture and to denigrate non-aboriginal explorations. The Smithsonian Institute apparently has been disingenuous about some discovered artifacts, including the discovery of large wooden coffins in the Crumf Cave. Some unconfirmed reports suggest that the proprietors of the Smithsonian Institute surreptitiously loaded a barge with artifacts, sinking it in the Atlantic Ocean to dispose of the inconvenient truth of cultural diffusionism throughout history.
