EXPECTED SPEAKERS: (new speakers in Blue) We are delighted that 3 of our presenters this year, are women.
Author Arthur Faram: of Dallas, and recent presenter at Sam Osmanagich's Pyramid Conference, is coming to fill the slot left by Kewaunee Lapseritis (who has been quite ill and is now in recovery.) One of Arthur's areas of expertise is "Geoglypholgy, a Newly Discovered Ancient Science" which is the subject of his talk. He's author of "La Merica" Pre-Columbian material, including some finteresting acts I'd not heard of before from our people or at conference.
Hugh Bannon: of North Eastern Illinois University: has researched in Egypt and found codes in art and jewelry on ancient Egyptian technologies and esoteric knowledge!
Dr. Robert List: Author, Professor at Jackson State University Mississippi. Topic- "Decoding Poverty Point and Satellite Sites"
Jill Baker: Artist extraordinaire, has a presentation
called: AN ANALYSIS OF PROFILE PORTRAITS FROM BURROWS CAVE FROM AN ARTIST'S POINT OF VIEW
Dr. Brenda Franey: Archaeologist, independent researcher, film-maker. Topic - Highlights of UK Archaeological Excavations: Unveiling of the Knights
Templar Scottish Headquarters & Dark Age sites in Wales. AND Research on Bat Creek Mound artifacts and the finding of a NEW skeleton in the Smithsonian.
Robert Feather of Great Britain: Researcher, author, world traveler;. Author of The Copper Scroll Decoded, HarperCollins, 1999,The Mystery of the Copper Scroll of Qumran, Bear & Co., 2003. The Secret Initiation of Jesus at Qumran, Bear & Co., 2005. Black Holes in the Dead Sea Scrolls, Watkins Publishing, 2012. Presentation Topic - The Copper Scroll found with the Dead Sea Scrolls; What does it have to teach us?
His presentation discusses the meaning of the copper scroll found in Cave 3 at Qumran and how it leads to an exposure of the Truth behind the delays and current crisis in understanding the Dead Sea Scroll.
“Whilst virtually all of the Dead Sea Scrolls have now been translated there are today huge unresolved Black Holes in the understanding of the Scrolls and the place where they were found, near the Dead Sea. The Copper Scroll, engraved on 99.7% pure copper has always been an enigma since its discovery in 1952.. By decoding the strange Greek letters and Egyptian numerals in the text the author has been able to develop a framework of fact based evidence for a ‘General Theory for the Origin of Religions’, which explains many of the Black Holes in the Dead Scrolls and in the Bible.”
M.T. Bussey She is-Tribal Art Historian, University Professor, author, editor and publisher, researcher, discovered Beaver Island stone circle in 1985. "Beaver Island Minoan Artifacts and the Native American Connection" New finds on Beaver Island: large stone heads with carvings, petroglyphs, possible old harbor site and connections with Lakota star knowledge.
Jay Wakefield: author, world traveler, researcher. Topic: Petroglyphs of the Minoans
Karl Hoenke: researcher, traveler. Topic - A brief review of The Viking Waterway Tour with Karl, Myron Paine, and Steve Hilgren.
Dr. Lee Pennington: world traveler, film-maker on ancient subjects. KENTUCKY MYSTERIES: POSSIBLE OLD WORLD CONNECTIONS. Kentucky, the center of the US in
many ways, appears to have been the crossroad of many travelers. The evidence of visitors is compelling.
Roger Jewell: Author, researcher: Topics- An exciting new/ancient find near St. Ignace of a large flat stone with ogham and other markings, AND Comments on the syllabary use in North America.
Dr. Carl Johannessen: Professor Emeritus University of Oregon. Author, researcher on plant diffusion. Topic:The travels of the 260 day long solar calendar Carl says- "It is a bit of an experiment in a certain sense. I hope the younger scholar will take it up too and search for the centers where this system was practiced to discover another way to demonstrate diffusion has existed regularly in the tropics."
Dr. John White: is a retired experimental physicist from Columbus, Ohio. He is an armchair archaeologist, who attempts to add value to subjects from the past by collecting information, such as names and symbols, and then giving explanations of their meanings. This year he will return to his favorite site, which is known as Burrows Cave. It is amazing that the BC artists had so much experience with ships that a full 50 min. of presentation can be made on the topic. The title of the lecture is The Ships of Burrows Cave.
Frank Joseph: Author of many ancient topic research books will share a retrospective of ANCIENT AMERICAN MAGAZINE celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. He will be speaking as well, for Wayne May, who cannot be with us this year as he'll be in Utah for a major conference which includes ancient American subjects.

Cancelled-Scott Wolter: Forensic Geologist, Host/Star of History Channel and H2 series- America Unearthed sends this note: it’s looking like I’m not going to be able to make the conference this year.

Wolter, PG President/Geologist/Petrographer
Cancelled-Johan Jarnaes, of the small Norwegian town of Kongsberg, has found petroglyphs with intriguing Minoan evidences. “Did Crete have prehistoric connections with Norway in the Bronze Age?” Cancelled.
