"In Plain Sight"
Old World Records in Ancient America
For over fifty years Gloria Farley of Heavener, Oklahoma researched, in the field and in the library, evidence of pre-Columbian visitors to North America. This research has shown the presence of people from such places as Scandinavia, Egypt, Iberia, and Libya in ancient times in the central portion of the United States. While much of this evidence consists of epigraphy(writing) also included are hard artifacts.
Herwork started as a casual investigation into a local curiosity. This investigation turned into a fifteen year quest which ended in the recognition of the Heavener Runestone as the work of ancient Viking travelers and its protection within a state park. Evidence of other visitors also came her way. These includes petroglyphs that record their names, drawings of the ships that brought them here, artifacts they left behind, and a solar observatory that they constructed to mark the passing of the seasons.
She gained many honors as a result of her work. She was named a Fellow of the Epigraphic Society, a Fellow of the Explorers Club, and a charter member of the Oklahoma Women's Hall of Fame.

SO JUST WHERE DID THE MELUNGEONS COME FROM?
The Olmecs were the first "high-tech" civilization in Central America. There is a great mystery concerning their attainment of this status. There is little evidence of a slow development of the skills needed to implement the grand scale civil engineering feats for which they are famous. They seemed to have obtained these skills overnight. This has led many to wonder if the Olmecs received outside technical assistance. Evidence has been found to show that people from both China and Africa reached Central America and may have contributed to the Olmec's rise. Visit these sites and learn more.
