" Scientific Evidence for Pre-Columbian Transoceanic Voyages to and from the Americas" by John L. Sorensen is a detailed two-part manuscript with extensive scientific evidence for transoceanic contact between the New and Old Worlds. Some of you have probably heard about representations in pre-Columbian India of sunflowers and maize, suggestive of contact with the New World, but there are dozens more well documented examples pointing to transoceanic contact. The evidence goes beyond plants, including fauna such as an Asian hookworm parasite found in South American mummies. Lots of interesting food for thought.
