The oldest, and probably greatest mystery of early Mexico, and North America, in general, is the problem of the Olmecs. Often referred to as Proto-Mayans by academic archeologists, many sculptures and other artifacts from this enigmatic civilization depict individuals who have African, Oriental or European features. The expressions and symbolism in many objects from the period seem to indicate a high level of sophistication, and a shared iconography with other cultures. What does it all mean? Who are these people? Were they isolated villagers or strangers from a faraway land?

David Hatcher Childress, known as the real-life Indiana Jones to the many fans of his books, is a captivating speaker and the author or coauthor of over 15 books. He has traveled the world several times over, seeking adventure and the answers to the mysteries of mankinds past. Born in France in 1957 and raised in the mountains of Colorado and Montana, Davids curiosity about the world was piqued at a young age. He attended the University of Montana where his studies in oriental culture and philosophy led him to a job teaching English in Taiwan. In 1976, David left the United States on what would become a six-year research and adventure odyssey. During this time, he studied firsthand the ancient civilizations of Africa, the Middle East, and China, sometimes journeying into dangerous territory along the way (like Uganda during the overthrow of Idi Amin). After more than 20 years of investigating these arcane subjects, David finds his unique views and ideas gaining popularity. He has appeared on Foxs Sightings & Encounters, two NBC specials, The Conspiracy Zone, and segments for the Discovery Channel, A&E, and the History Channel. He is also a frequent guest on nationally syndicated radio shows. He continues to explore, write and excite people about discovery through his magazine, World Explorer, and his publishing company, Adventures Unlimited Press.
