The Tucson Artifacts

Description

In the 1920s, a series of inscribed leaden crosses and ceremonial swords were excavated in the desert outside Tucson. This new inventory presents a complete set of documentary photographs plus transcriptions of the Latin accompanied by English translations. These improbable gems of American archeology record a unique trans-Pacific Jewish colony from Charlemagne’s Europe in eighth to ninth century Arizona. Donald Yates’s research and readings will forever lay to rest any modern-day notions that pre-Columbian civilizations developed without Old World influences.
