Wayne May is the publisher of Ancient American, a popular archaeology magazine about The Americas Before Columbus, that he founded in 1993. Since then he has identified our country's 6th Century B.C. Hopewell Culture with contemporaneous Hebrews described in the Book of Mormon, showing a Semitic presence in North America and has released five volumes on the subject in his This Land series (Hay River Press, WI). A sought-after lecturer at alternative science conferences across the United States, May continues to successfully challenge conventional wisdom upholding Christopher Columbus as the lone discoverer of our continent by connecting Book of Mormon revelations with striking parallels in the latest archaeological finds. Personally following-up on the vast evidence he collected, May has participated in and directed a number of paradigm-shattering excavations in Illinois, Missouri and Wisconsin, where he produces Ancient American and lives with his wife, Kris, outside the town of Colfax, Wisconsin.
