外文标题：Chinese discovered America 2,800 years before Columbus?
LONDON: It was Christopher Columbus who discovered America but new evidence suggests the Chinese were exploring the Americas at least a thousand years before Christ.
Recently discovered ancient scripts suggest Chinese explorers may have discovered America long before the Europeans arrived there, Daily Mail reported.
John Ruskamp, a retired chemist and amateur epigraph researcher from Illinois, US, discovered the unusual markings while walking in the Petroglyph National Monument in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
He claimed the markings indicated that the ancient people from Asia were present in the Americas around 1,300 BC – nearly 2,800 years before Columbus arrived at the New World in 1492.
“These ancient Chinese writings in north America cannot be fake, for the markings are very old as are the styles of the scripts,” Ruskamp was reported as saying.
“As such the findings of this scientific study confirm that ancient Chinese people were exploring and positively interacting with the native people over 2,500 years ago,” he added.
The pictograms Ruskamp discovered on the rocks of Albuquerque appear to be an ancient script that was used by the Chinese after the end of Shang Dynsasty.
The ancient picture and scrolls found may be of any country not necessarily that of china. The primitive man in different countries used different ways of expression

It is immaterial who reached their first. Everybody seems things falling but no one related it to gravitional force until Newton. So result is important.
