NEW MEXICO :  Ten Commandments written in ancient Hebrew dating to the reign of King Solomon.  A stone in a dry creek bed in New Mexico,
discovered by early settlers in the region, is one of the most amazing archaeological discoveries in the Western Hemisphere. It contains engraved on its flank
the entire Ten Commandments written in ancient Hebrew script!  Who put it there? Who wrote the incredible inscription of the
ancient Hebrew dialect?

In his book
The Origins and Empire of Ancient Israel, author-historian Steven M. Collins points out that the Las Lunas Stone inscription in archaic
Hebrew was written in the Hebrew letters of the style of the Moabite Stone, dated to about 1,000 B.C. This would place the writing on the stone to the time of
Solomon, who reigned from 1014 B.C. to 974 B.C.

OHIO: Unearthed in Ohio 1860, an artifact discovered in burial mound bears an old Hebrew inscription of the Ten Commandments.  The tablet
also includes a scene of  Moses
 carved into the front of the tablet in considerable detail, holding the tablets . .

PENNSYLVANIA: Literally hundreds of inscribed Phoenician, Celtic and Basque stone grave markers have been found in Susquehanna Valley of
Pennsylvania, dated to 800-600 B.C.,
over 2,000 years before the fateful voyage of Columbus!

TEXAS: Found near the Rio Grande River in Texas was an ancient inscription written Ogham and Libyan.  The inscription states that a king by the
name of Shishonq visited North America a number of times.
It is translated as, "A crew of Shishonq, the king took shelter in this place of
" Interestingly, the Bible mirrors this kings name as Shishak (Shishonq) who invaded the Kingdom of Judah during the time of Rehoboam (son of
Solomon) after the kingdom of Israel separated from allegiance with the throne of David. Shishak was no doubt an ally of Jeroboam, the king of Israel, at that
time. He was a mighty king and plundered the Temple and riches of the kingdom of Judah (see
I Kings 14:25-26).

NEW HAMPSHIRE: More evidence of early Hebrew-Phoenician presence in North America is found at Mystery Hill, named for the mystery of its
origin. Located in North Salem, New Hampshire, a large temple observatory site of about twenty acres was discovered by early colonial settlers.
It included shrines with dedications to the god Baal, a Phoenician-Canaanite deity condemned by the God of Israel
. Dr. Barry Fell dated these
inscriptions to about 800-600 B.C., a time of apostasy in ancient Israel. Such a site dedicated to Baal should be expected, since most of the kings of Israel, after
David and Solomon, worshipped Baal and the Babylonian pantheon, including Astarte (Easter) and Tammuz.

IOWA: Evidence found in a burial mound found in 1877 near Davenport, Iowa. The ancient stele contains joint inscriptions in three ancient languages
Iberian-Punic (related to Phoenician/Hebrew), Egyptian, and ancient Libyan.
Why these three languages? During the time of Solomon the leading world
alliance of the time was a triple alliance consisting of Israel-Phoenicia, Egypt, and Libya! It seems clear that Iberian and Punic speakers were living in Iowa in the
9th century B.C.(Barry Fell, America B.C., page 268).

The Iowa stele indicates that the triple alliance began in the days of Solomon, between Israel, Phoenicia, and Egypt/Libya, continued on into the 800s B.C. It
probably lasted until Israel was carried away into captivity in 721 B.C. by the growing Assyrian empire. The Bible states plainly that the northern kingdom of
Israel, ruled by Ahab, was still in bed with Phoenicia during his
reign, around 850 B.C. Ahab married the daughter of Hiram, king of Tyre, a woman by the name of Jezebel, a priestess of the Baal-Astarte abomination.

The Jewish encyclopedia tells us that Ahab was a very powerful king  - one of the four greatest kings of all history! According to the Targum Sheni, four kings
reigned over the entire world . They were in order: Solomon, Ahab, Nebuchadnezzar, and Cyrus of Persia.

The Aggagah declares that Ahab was one of three or four kings who will have no portion in the world to come (Sanhedrin 10.2). Over the gates of Samaria he
placed the inscription:
Ahab denies the God of Israel. Influenced by his wife Jezebel, he became an enthusiastic idolater like none before him. He left no hilltop in Israel without an idol
before which he bowed.
He substituted the names of idols for the divine Name of
God in the Torah. Ahab is said to have ruled over the whole world and his dominion extended over 252 kingdoms.
(Encyclopedia Judaica, Ahab,vol.1, p.439).

Thus during the 800s, Israel was still a very powerful kingdom, and the triple alliance forged by Solomon with Phoenicia and Egypt was still going strong, in the
hands of Ahab. An inscription noting this alliance, by being in three languages of the three kingdoms, found in Davenport, Iowa, attests to the fact of this
continuing and powerful entente. Ahab was a worldly despot whose wickedness was only surpassed by his foolishness. Nevertheless, he was still the most
powerful monarch in the world during his time, and the triple alliance brought Israel great wealth and might.

Writes Steve Collins: A date of 800-700 B.C. for this stele confirms that the triple alliance of Israel, Egypt and Phoenicia lasted long after the lifetime of King
Solomon. The Bible records that the ten tribes of Israel forsook worshiping the Creator God after the death of Solomon and adopted the religious customs of
Egypt, Tyre and Sidon.
Biblical accounts show that Israel and Phoenicia were still very closely allied during the reign of King Ahab of Israel (circa 850 B.C.), and there is no evidence
that their alliance
suffered a breach until approximately 721 B.C., when Israel ceased to be a nation in the Mideast. . . . Therefore the Iowa stele showing that these ancient
nations were still working together around 800 B.C. in the New World is consistent with biblical accounts.

NEW YORK: In addition to these discoveries, another stele exhibiting the ancient Egyptian-Libyan script was unearthed on Long Island, New
. Dr. Barry Fell states that it also probably dates to around the ninth century B.C.

OKLAHOMA: Still another amazing discovery was made in Oklahoma, where another stele was found which contained references to the gods
Baal and Ra, with an inscription which was an extract from the Hymn to Aton by Pharaoh Akhnaton (Soloman)
.  This Oklahoma stele is written in
Iberian-Punic, a language descended from Phoenician-Hebrew, and Barry Fell declares that it is scarcely older than 800 B.C
.(see Collins, p.212, Fell,
America B.C., p.159).

What pleasure people

- if they only knew..
This  second mound is located off
Browns Lake on Hwy W . This one seems
to have been used several times. One as
an 'ancient' mound - then a Native
American Burial Mound - then a
cemetery dating early 1800's. When we
first started reporting this cemetery, it
was unkept with broken tombstones.
Since then it has been cleaned with the  
broken tombstones removed.  
Unfortunately, no markers were set to
mark the graves of which had  the
tombstones removed.   As the story
goes, the remains of the Native
Americans were damaged and discarded
as they made way for the new wave of
tenants . This seems to be one of the
higher points overlooking Burlington .

ScienceDaily (Nov. 18, 2004)  Radiocarbon tests of carbonized plant remains
where artifacts were unearthed last May along the Savannah River in Allendale
County by University of South Carolina archaeologist Dr. Albert Goodyear indicate
that the sediments containing these artifacts are at least 50,000 years old,
meaning that humans inhabited North American long before the last ice age.
The findings are significant because they suggest that humans inhabited North America well before the last ice age more than
20,000 years ago, a potentially explosive revelation in American archaeology.

Goodyear, who has garnered international attention for his discoveries of tools that pre-date what is believed to be humans'
arrival in North America, announced the test results, which were done by the University of California at Irvine Laboratory,
Wednesday (Nov .17).

"The dates could actually be older," Goodyear says. "Fifty-thousand should be a minimum age since there may be little
detectable activity left."

Mainstream Science believes that the dawn of modern homo sapiens occurred in Africa between 60,000 and 80,000 years
ago. Evidence of modern man's migration out of the African continent has been documented in Australia and Central Asia at
50,000 years and in Europe at 40,000 years.

The fact that humans could have been in North America at or near the same time is expected to spark debate among
archaeologists worldwide, raising new questions on the origin and migration of the human species.

Evidence suggests mound builders of North American placed Temples at locations that form an interlocking grid matrix . These Mound Builders were the
unknown or I should say now forgotten forces that influenced the development of the Native Americans. The later Indian burial mounds of North America could
have been built over pre-existing remnants of a long lost knowledge.

This has been the case of most conquering cultures throughout the ages. Ancient North American mounds stand unarguably before humanity challenging all to
accept the simplicity of their achievements. Accurately mapping the Americas, the mound builders placed Temples at locations that form interlocking grids. By
connecting the dots of these ancient Indian burial mound sites, the map  begins to reveal an organized grid. The mounds produce geometric patterns in the
shape of five  pointed stars.  Uncovering the great mysteries of the Mounds and the site grids may be the greatest discovery of the millennia .

The belief of a vanished raced dominated popular and scientific discussions of the origins of  the mounds. Although scholars were trying to push the theories of
American Indians as the builders of the mounds, many people  refused to believe this 'new' theory and it wasn't until our recent time of in the mid-nineteenth
century did the 'new' theory become accepted. Today  only a few even know of this past belief.  It was Albert Gallatin, founder of the American  Ethnological
Society of New York and Wisconsin naturalist that pushed this unpopular position. However, Caleb Atwater published Description of the Antiquities in the State of
Ohio and other  Western States (1820) and  advanced the idea that the mounds were built by a culture much more advanced than the American Indians. Josiah
Priest, 'Antiquities and Discoveries of the West', argued that the mounds were built by the Lost Tribes of Israel, wandering Egyptians, Greeks and  other groups
unassociated with the American Indian. William Pidgeon's ' Tradition of De-Coo-Dah'  (1858) , states that Chief De-Coo-Dah told him of an ancient race of
mound building people who were  much more numerous than the present Indians.

The Battle of Cummorah

In the 11th chapter of Genesis we read about the building of the tower at Babel, and  then in verse 8  it says,
"So the Lord scattered them abroad from there upon the face of all the earth: and they left  off to build the city"

According to the Book of Mormons, after the Genesis Flood , during the time of 'The Tower of Babel,  a group sailed from the Region of the
Tower of Babel to North America .  This group of people were known to the Mormons as the JAREDITES.

"Moroni commanded his people to  commence in digging up heaps of earth round about all the cities, throughout all the land which was possessed by the
Nephites. And upon the top of these ridges of earth he caused that there should be timbers, yea, works of timbers built up to the height of a man, round about
the cities. And he caused that upon those works of timbers there should be a frame of pickets built upon the timbers round about; and they were strong and
high. And he caused towers to be erected that overlooked those works of pickets, and he caused places of security to be built upon those towers, that the
stones and the arrows of the
Lamanites could not hurt them. And they were prepared that they could cast stones from the top thereof, according to their
pleasure and their strength, and slay him who should attempt to approach near the walls of the city. (Al. 50:1-5)"

"Thanks to the introduction of new state and Federal laws,
Wisconsin's remaining mounds have now been protected.
According to the Burial Site Protection Law of 1985, Wisconsin
progressively defined all Native American mounds as human burial
places. The law protects them from disturbance and destruction, as it
does for all cemeteries and family plots.
