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.David Hatcher Childress nos descubre uno de los grandes enigmas de la arqueología, los Olmecas, la más sorprendente y antigua civilización de América.

Description

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.David Hatcher Childress nos descubre uno de los grandes enigmas de la arqueología, los 
Olmecas, la más sorprendente y antigua civilización de América. Su comercio transoceánico y la 
conexión africana, la escritura jeroglífica, las esculturas de cabezas colosales, el misterio de sus 
cráneos deformados y el sorprendente enigma de las calaveras de cristal.Hasta mediados del siglo XX 
casi nada se sabía de los Olmecas, civilización que llegó a desarrollar la metalurgia, la escritura y el uso 
del calendario mucho antes que los Mayas. Hoy es reconocida como la cultura madre de Mesoamérica y 
sus orígenes constituyen el mayor y más antiguo misterio de la Historia. El descubrimiento de cabezas 
colosales y estatuas con rasgos africanos muy definidos plantea más preguntas que respuestas.David 
Hatcher Childress, con el rigor que le caracteriza, no solo ha viajado al territorio que habitaron los
Olmecas para responder a estos interrogantes, si no que, además, acude a la abundante bibliografía 
para cotejar sus hallazgos y ofrecernos este libro inquietante, pero revelador, sobre la que es, quizá, la 
cultura más antigua de Mesoamérica.
