Dr. Gunnar Thompson spoke at the Internet Atlantic Conference on Oct. 10, 2009.

His topic was Ancient Egyptian maize with an introduction on turkeys and Turkey Corn in the British Isles. The Egyptian maize dates to 4000 BC; and it follows introduction via Minoan Crete and the Middle East circa 5000 BC. It now appears that maize, or Indian corn, was a major crop in Babylon, Egypt, Greece, and Rome. This is a major breakthrough as all the traditional historians have claimed for the past century that there was no maize in Egypt until after Columbus.
