Grand Canyon Egyptian Treasure

Grand Canyon Egyptian Treasure

The Arizona Gazette published a front-page article on April 5, 1909, that ran several pages entitled “Explorations in Grand Canyon: Remarkable finds indicate ancient people migrated from Orient.” The article mentioned that an expedition financed by the Smithsonian Institute discovered tablets bearing hieroglyphics, copper weapons, and tools, statues of Egyptian deities, and mummies. Smithsonian denied all knowledge of the discovery, and several expeditions searching for the cavern have come up empty. Was it just a hoax? Supporters claim that the restricted areas in the Canyon are evidence of the cover-up.
