Description


Ancient Scripts in South America is about the history of writing in South America. This is the first book to discuss and explain the long history of writing in Brazil, Bolivia and Peru. It explains how the Sumerians, came to Bolivia-Peru in search of minerals, and named the new mining area Kuga-Ki, because of the large tin deposits in the region. It shows how the people of Bolivia-Peru from Sumerian times up to the Inca used Proto-Sumerian linear signs to write inscriptions on paper, leaves and stones. In Ancient Scripts in South America, I explain my decipherment of the inscriptions on the Fuente Magna Bowl, Pokotia statue and the writing on the mantas (robes) of Incan Kings. The book will also report on the Axumite writing used by the Moche, and the Malian inscriptions found throughout South America—even at NASCA. Ancient Scripts in South America is the most comprehensive book on Native American writing in South America today. It proves that the Maya and Olmec were not the only Native Americans to possess their own writing systems.
