Millions have asked this question because the Book of Mormon is foundational to the Mormon faith – more accurately known as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Many have wondered what evidence has been found in its support, as the book asserts to be a record of ancient peoples that came by ship from the Old World region of Israel to the America’s where they developed into large and highly advanced civilizations with written language, walled cities, extensive roads, metal working, agriculture and a multitude of other sophisticated capabilities.
Claims have been made that there is no evidence to support its historical authenticity – or historicity. This website is devoted to providing numerous ARTICLES, VIDEOS and other educational opportunities that demonstrate through archaeology, genetics, linguistics and many other fields that not only is there profound physical evidence for the validity of this ancient historical record, but that this evidence leads to further understandings of where this history actually took place, the role of the Prophet Joseph Smith, and the importance of the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
