Richard Syrett speaks with an author and independent researcher who will reveal archaeological evidence for seafaring visitations by ancient Romans and others in North America, which occurred far before the time of Columbus. Civilizations such as the Greeks, Romans, Chinese, and even the Egyptians came to the Americas to seek out commodities such as copper, he says. He’ll discuss how Ohio Valley fortresses bear a strong similarity to ancient structures in the British Isles.
GUEST: Rick Osmon was selected for the US Air Force Academy right out of high school. He later attended Vincennes University and earned an Associates of Science in Laser and Electro-Optics Technology. He worked for defense contractors a number of years and then took a job with the US Navy as a civilian with an engineering support field activity, specializing in radar, night vision, and laser equipment for surveillance and munitions guidance.
Rick was also reading everything he could find about the weird and unusual, history, archeology, paleontology, geography, cartography, cryptozoology, cryptography, and hollow earth theory. After leaving government employment in 2004, Rick began this hunt for hidden knowledge full time. He is the author of The Graves of the Golden Bear: Ancient Fortresses and Monuments of the Ohio Valley.
