I do, Ken, I sincerely do. I`ve been fortunate to see a couple of collections that will never see the light of day. Artifacts and numbers of them that would astound anybody. Things that are local to the area.

South Georgia and north Florida have some projectile points and blades that will rival anything from Texas, Pacific northwest, and the Hopewell Complex.
One should do some research and study the vanished tribe of Timucua native Americans, of which my mother's side of the family is a direct lineage.Quite interesting.

The Timucua inhabited Nic's stomping grounds in Southeast GA and Northeast Florida. mostly unheard of "tribe" that basically vanished or assimilated into the Seminoles when the Spanish came. My deceased aunt did years and years of research on them, but sadly the research was all on paper and lost in a house fire right after she passed away.

I've got a good old book called "The Indians of the Southeastern United States" by John Swanton that has a lot of plates of DeBry's old engravings from the 1500s of Timucua Indian life.

I was down with what Graham Hancock was saying till he started on telekinesis and the pyramids. Kinda lost me there. History is fascinating enough without the supernatural angle to me.

Nic, I live close to and work in Manchester TN. There were Welsh coins from the 1100’s found in ,or around the old Fort here on the Duck River. Most people attribute the presence of those coins to Madoc ,or some of his people.
 
I have read some pretty convincing theories about the Mandan Indians being descended from Madoc's Welsh colony.
