Horse Remains In Mesoamerica


Mark Beesley

Recommended Posts

I saw the following on FARMS in the FAQ:

The Book of Mormon never claims that the horse was universally known or used in the New World. For example, Book of Mormon references to horses suggest that they may have been relatively uncommon, being limited only to certain regions during specific periods of Book of Mormon history. One horse specimen, discovered in Florida, was carbon-dated to about 100 B.C. Other horse remains have been found in precolumbian archaeological contexts in Mesoamerica (at Loltun and Mayapan), but these have not as yet been carbon dated.

Does anyone have a reference were I can find out more about the remains found in Mesoamerica?

Thanks.

Thanks for the info.

At the risk of playing devil's advocate, since the critics will probably point it out anyway, all of those cited studies are almost fifty years old.
