And A Mexican goddess of fertility resembles Queen Nefertiti? An authoritative archaeologist explains the dramatic parallels between the Old World and the primitive New. ~ Were the Chinese, the Indonesians, the Vikings, the Phoenicians, even beings from Outer Space instrumental in the development of early American civilizations? In a book of great narrative interest Dr. Davies scrutinizes closely this fascinating and contentious question . Conjecture about the origins of the preColumbian inhabitants of America and about possible Old World influences upon their development has always abounded, ranging in its abundance from the sober to the wildly fanciful. In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, for instance, theories were put forward that the American Indians were descended from the Israelites, Romans, Carthaginians, even the Irish. The birth of the science of archaeology in the nineteenth century and particularly the discoveries made in Egypt provided further scope for controversy. Today, increasingly accurate means of analyzing evidence notwithstanding, it remains a topic that inspires elaborate theorizing~theorizing that ranges from Gladwyn's belief that part of the fleet of Alexander the Great brought civilization to America, to von Daniken's proposition that extraterrestrial beings engendered the human race. In Voyagers to the New World, Dr. Davies, utilizing a wealth of evidence from archaeological and anthropological research, outlines the state of knowledge of the, subject today, discusses the various themes, and advances his own views in a lucid and readable, yet scholarly way. To this question, more than most, there is no single, simple answer; but Dr. Davies guides the general reader so surely through the maze that he can establish an informed opinion of his own. With maps, 16 pages of black~and~white photographs, bibliography, and index
