According to the current view there was no contact between the Old World and the New World before Columbus. Yet numerous artifacts have been found that suggest a link between Egypt and the Americas.
Egypt and The Americas
Consider these similarities:
*Both have huge pyramids aligned to the cardinal points.
*Both Egypt and the Americas used royal headresses of similar style.
*Both employed a unique style of construction using "L" shaped corners.
*Both use the same style of metal clamps to hold the huge stones in place.
*And both cultures used the process of mummification to preserve and honor their dead.
These compelling similarities suggest to some that both ancient cultures were influenced by a sophisticated common source. Was that source Atlantis?
