Swiss Assyriologist and pioneering Hittitologist, who developed a deviant interdisciplinary field of research ("Meropisforschung"), based on textual fragments of the Greek historian Theopompus of Chios, and dealing with assumed pre- or proto-historic contacts between the Old- and the New World. Antithetic to the prevailing academic school of thought, Forrer advocated the idea that Theopomp´s "Meropis" was not a fictional place, but an actually existing geographic entity.
He died on 10 January 1986 in San Salvador, El Salvador.
