AbstractThis book is a discussion of the antiquities of America from before the time of Columbus. It includes chapters on ancient ruins found in Ohio, native rock engravings, mosiac artifacts found among the Aztecs, as well as the practice of cannibalism among early groups in the Americas. The possibility of ancient cities along the Mississippi River is also discussed, as well as possible links between many different native groups in the Americas. A map is included within this book.
