Chief Joseph`s Cunieform Tablet
Studying Burrows Cave along with the Padre Crespi collection, I determined that they both originated in the Neo-Assyrian era when the empire reached to the border of Egypt. Your statement that the cunieform is Assyrian, goes along with that time frame. The little tablet is a temple offering receipt which is carried as a talisman, perhaps for the voyage to America. Since Chief Joseph was in the west, the tablet could have been from the Padre Crespi group in Equador who were traveling north. "When Chief Joseph, a renowned Nez Perce leader, surrendered to Europeans in 1877, he gave a special gift to General Nelson Appleton Miles, wrote Vine Deloria, Jr. in his book Red Earth white Lies. The gift received by the general was a pendant that turned out to be an ancient Mesopotamian cuneiform tablet. According to Benjamin Daniali of AssyriaTimes.com, the tablet was translated by Robert Biggs, professor of Assyriology at the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago. Professor Biggs found that it was a sales receipt for a lamb dating back to 2042 B.C. (I`d say Neo-Assyrian Empire). Mary Gindling of Helium’s History Mysteries wrote, “The chief said that the tablet had been passed down in his family for many generations, and that they had inherited it from their white ancestors. Chief Joseph said that white men had come among his ancestors long ago.” Chief Joseph was a man of honor, and there was no reason for him to invent a flowery story about the origins of his gift. Furthermore, Gindling eliminated the possibility of forgery based on the fact that cuneiform had not been deciphered until 1846, and a potential forger would have had to be “familiar not only with the ancient language itself, but with the shape of the tablets created by the ancient scribes”. The white people the tribe encountered were Phoenician Carthaginians from North Africa, Tunisia. The Burrows cave people were from North Africa as well, further to the west coast. The Michigan slates settlements dated from the Byzantine era, the persecution of the Gnostics. They were not Coptic Gnostics (Egyptians), but were Phoenician Carthaginian Gnostics - white people.
