    The Anglo-American Exploratory Society Expedition - Late 1970's - ?

    I recently obtained a copy of An Exploratory Journey into the Mysterious Mountains of Llanganati, published by the Anglo-American Exploratory Society [“undergoing formation].” The document is dated January -July 1978 which appears to be the projected date of the expedition, not the date of publication.

    The 148- page proposal (prospectus -although it does not ask for funds) describes an effort to find the lost treasure, along with several other scientific pursuits. It was to be lead by Jean-Clause Samia. Norman J.W. Thrower, Phd, Professor of Geography, University of California, Los Angeles, wrote the Preface and apparently played a major role in the initial organization of the Society and the expedition.
    M. Samia refers in the “Leader’s Introduction” to “My disastrous expedition into the Llanganatis a few years ago…”

    Certainly not the words one would wish to read if contemplating joining up. Although they echo the advertisement quoted in Peter Fleming's classic Brazilian Adventure on a search for Col. Fawcett - "Return doubtful."

    Does anyone here know if this expedition was successfully initiated? And, if it was (were?), the results?
    Does anyone have information on M. Samia’s previous attempt?

    Thank you!

    Good luck to all,

    The Old Bookaroo, CM

    Hello Bookaroo

    The Jean-Clause Samia I know from a mutual friend. He claims Jean-Clause Samia made several trips into the Llanganati region. from what I have been told he travels with no one but himself and claimed he has sold artifacts from various sites he found in the region. My friend claims the old Frenchman is as tough as nails as some times he comes out of those mountains more dead than alive. He has been accused of being involved in regular transactions in the illicit antiquities trade. Deals originating out of Panama and Columbia.

    Hello bookaroo

    If you would like to know more about Jean-Clause Samia PM me. His old these days but quite a character in his younger days.

    Most likely... Jean-Clause Samia may not even be still alive....I think he would be at least 80 maybe more.

    Some say he was Half Italian and English. I was told he was french but fluent in several languages.
