THE MYSTERY OF THE OLMECS AND THE CRYSTAL SKULLS
The fascinating history of the oldest and most advanced civilization in all of the Americas. A story of mystery that predates all Mesoamerican cultures.
David Hatcher Childress
Welcome to the land of Olman! Journey with researcher David Hatcher Childress as he explores one of the greatest archeological mysteries: the Olmecs, the most astonishing and ancient civilization of the Americas. Their trans-oceanic commerce and their connection with Africa, their hieroglyphic writing, their colossal head sculptures, the enigma of their deformed heads, and the surprising mystery of the origin of the crystal skulls.
Until the middle of the 20th Century almost no one knew anything about the Olmecs, a civilization that developed metallurgy, writing, and a calendar long before the Mayans. Today they are recognized as the mother culture of Mesoamerica and their origins constitute the greatest and oldest mystery in history. The discovery of colossal head sculptures and statues with well-defined African traits has created more questions than answers. Was, then, the Olmec culture the result of trans-oceanic contact? Or, were they perhaps trans-oceanic colonizers?
This civilization represents an enigma that continues to grow and that has become with each passing day more complex: their mysterious origins, their disappearance, the controversial similarities between their statues and those of Egypt and China, the curious deformation of their elongated skulls, their hieroglyphic writing, and the enigma of the crystal skulls.
