For hundreds of years, well-versed explorers have noted that at scattered sites throughout North America there are ancient and complex petroglyphs with shapes suggestive of ancient Asiatic script. Archaeologists typically dismiss these reports as instances of apophenia, the psychological phenomena of noting meaning in truly meaningless or random patterns, such as clouds in the sky.
Consequently, these curious "out-of-place" images have remained an anathema for archaeologists, being overlooked, miscategorized, and, by fiat categorized as Native expressions with no possible link to any outside influence.
Contrary to this dogma and ingrained institutionalized bias, and as part of a larger study, this report scientifically documents two sets of highly complex and very ancient Chinese writings that were pecked into the rocks of Arizona and New Mexico approximately 2500 YBP. Here is demonstrable epigraphic proof that Chinese explorers not only reached the Americas long ago, but that they interacted positively with Native North American people over an extended period.
