Abstract

This series discusses the Babylonian and Israelite people who established Book of Mormon civilizations. Brookbank suggests that the Jaredites were Semites. The ancient ruins left in America have distinct Babylonian and Assyrian influence. The Nephite-Israelite people of the Book of Mormon have also left their mark upon civilization. The second part discusses enclosed courts, parallel halls, the lack of windows, sculptured pavements, and the lack of internal staircases.
