The Lost Civilizations of North America Featured on the Glenn Beck FOX NEWS TV show. This fascinating documentary explores the hidden world of ancient North America, (note "hidden" because it was purposely hidden) and why the artifacts and evidences of advanced civilization have been lost and largely ignored.

Archeologists, historians and anthropologists discuss the rise of certain political and scientific agendas and how they combined to support the doctrine of "Manifest Destiny" and Native American policies and encouraged the "wanton destruction" of many ancient structures and earthen monuments along with the hiding, discarding and discrediting of artifacts found within them.

Anthropologists and DNA researchers explore the origins of these people through their remains and their amazing "earthworks," written language and other artifacts. Learn the incredible majesty of the ancient Americans and discover why it has been hidden all these years.

Lost Civilization is an engaging documentary that answers the question: "Why haven't we heard about the great civilizations that existed on the North American continent and why theories about their origin have passed out of place and time."

The documentary features interviews with numerous scholars including the former head of the Smithsonian Institute, Roger Kennedy; also Harvard PhD in Anthropology, Alice Beck Kehoe and many others who discuss the political and racist agendas behind "social evolution" that allowed a nation to wantonly destroy the remnants of what some consider to be among the oldest, most advanced and massive ancient civilization in human history.

I think Barry did a GREAT job at editing this video, but, others who are trying to use this as evidence for The Book of Mormon seem to be a bit mis-leading. I am LDS and am always enjoy evidences for The Book of Mormon, but, it is a stretch to say that the Hopewell fit the bill. Some of the information presented in this film has got the scholars who appear in the video, a bit nervous and are taking a stand against it. Here is a statement they have made:

The following is a statement jointly authored by myself and the several other scholars indicated regarding our participation in the recent video production, "The Lost Civilizations of North America." Given the notoriety this video has received (it was discussed by Glenn Beck on his television program), we felt it necessary to make the following statement a matter of record. I urge anyone who has any questions not answered by the statement to contact me.

As scholars committed to increasing public understanding of Native American history and archaeology, we want to make it clear that we do not support the theories presented in "The Lost Civilizations of North America" DVD. In our opinion, there is no compelling archaeological or genetic evidence for a migration from the Middle East to North America a few thousand years ago, nor is there any credible scientific evidence that Old World civilizations were involved in developing Native American cultures in pre-Columbian times. Many of the artifacts used to support the film's claims, such as the Newark "Holy Stones," have been proven fraudulent based on convincing scientific evidence and historical documentation.

I found this to be very educational. This is something that isn't taught in public schools, but it should be. I highly recommend this video.

I liked how they included their references so that I could followup and check their "facts". I have yet to discover any. It's a great documentary and shows the wanton destruction of our countries past and to help the progressives rewrite history. I'm so glad to finally know more about where I came from. (I'm part Cherokee). I've been learning that my ancestor's was one of the very few who had and kept their written language, not just a verbal one which is constantly evolving. I highly recommend this documentary for ages 8-108 We need to start teaching our children and grand children the TRUTH of our past.

This story tells of a misjudged, misunderstood, and underestimated people. It was enlightening, and made me want to learn more.

I have been studying ancient civilizations of the Americas as well as around the world for thirty odd years now, so I was already very familiar with much of the information contained in this program. I suppose one could call me an educated novice.

I am also familiar with the idea and practice of succeeding civilizations skewing the history towards their particular agendas, re-writing, and at times, erasing historical fact. Although I don't personally agree with that practice (and I believe most folks don't either), I see that it is commonplace for all people throughout recorded history and around the world to do so, especially when the people involved have a `dog in the fight'.

I was really looking forward to this video, however ten minutes into it I began to get this funky feeling; I felt that there was an unstated agenda here and that I was being preached to. Something about the way it was being edited; sound - bytes feeling out of context, and leading the viewer to an already established conclusion of a particular ilk.

I wondered if some of the the participants even knew of the producers affiliations and agendas - as one of the other reviewers indicated, some of the experts felt duped after the fact and wanted to remove their names from this project.

For me it quickly began to have the flavor of a `Party program'; information posing as educational but coated with poison. There were suggestions of feminist oppression scenarios, genocide, and white privilege. Then, one of the experts finally said the word... reluctantly..."RACISM!". At that point it was clear that the left (so to speak) was at work here.

You know there are many things lost to history that we can't explain fully do to what others that preceded us did to mask and distort the truths that they didn't want shown to our generation. This is a great DVD that is at the forefront of those that want to restore for the rest of us to know what can't be hidden to be explained to those that would like to live in North America those many years ago. Look to Central and South America for links to who and what these People were and where they came from. What they lived like is there for us to learn from. Take the time to watch these stories that explain and expose those fact for you to see. Thank you all that took part in this protect for the rest of us to have.
