Gunnar Thompson is a time detective, whose enduring passion has been to uncover the secrets of the past. A longtime resident of the Pacific Northwest, he is a world traveler, archeologist, and anthropologist who has served on the faculties of seven universities in the United States.
He has written several watershed books and numerous articles on the subject of early voyages to the New World before Columbus. These include: Nu Sun (1989), American Discovery (1994), The Friar's Map (1996), and Lions In The New Land (1998). His discovery of the Omnibus Power Sign in 1985 offered the first conclusive proof that Asian mariners had made a significant contribution to the origins of New World civilization.
His vital discoveries have received praise from such notable scholars as the Norwegian ethnologist Thor Heyerdahl, author Gavin Menzies, and archeologist Betty Meggers of the Smithsonian Institution. He has appeared internationally on countless television documentaries and is widely acknowledged as a leading world expert on multi-ethnic New World Discovery.
