History must be re-written
on May 7, 2013
Despite the unfortunate lack of editing of this work, and the sometimes frequent speculative statements by the author, this is an important and well referenced work that is worth reading. The author makes a compelling argument for the origin of the "paleoamericans" who traveled to the Americas long before the "Mongolians" migrated across the Bering Strait (as once believed). As an American who claims both an African and a Native American heritage, I am deeply enthralled and fascinated by the author's accounts of the "mound builders" and their link to the indigenous peoples of the Americas. Apart from the works by Dr. Van Sertima and Dr. Diop, this book is unprecedented in its claims to the builders of civilizations that parallel the Olmecs and the Ancient Kemetic people (Egyptians), in areas including Illinois, Ohio, Massachusetts, and the Mississippi Valley regions of North America. I would highly recommend this scholarly effort to those of us who are continuing in the process of the "miss-education" of members of the human race, particularly those who have long been taught that the history of African people in America began with slavery.
Upon completing this book, one would have to ask how history has been allowed to be written as we know it today. With such comprehensive documentation by Dr. Imhotep, how could the contributions of the Pelasgians (Greece), Natufians (Canaan-present day Israel), Anu/Twa (North America),and the Skraelings (Scandinavia/Greenland) have been excluded from the pages of modern day history books? History must be re-written.
