The Newport Tower

The Newport Tower
Medieval stone tower ... in Rhode Island. Does it look like any other Colonial structure you've seen? Recent carbon dating of the mortar indicates 1400s construction date (see post below).

The Westford Knight Sword

The Westford Knight Sword
Medieval Battle Sword ... in Westford, Massachusetts. Can anyone deny the pommel, hilt and blade punch-marked into the bedrock?

The Spirit Pond Rune Stone

The Spirit Pond Rune Stone
Medieval Inscription ... in Maine, near Popham Beach. Long passed off as a hoax, but how many people know the Runic language? And how is it that some of the Runic characters match rare runes on inscriptions found in Minnesota and Rhode Island? Carbon-dating of floorboards at nearby long house date to 1405.

The Narragansett Rune Stone

The Narragansett Rune Stone
Medieval Inscription ... in Rhode Island's Narragansett Bay. This Runic inscription is only visible for twenty minutes a day at low tide--is this also the work of a modern-day, Runic-speaking hoaxster?

The Westford Boat Stone

The Westford Boat Stone
Medieval Ship Carving ... in Westford, MA. Found near the Westford Knight site. Weathering patterns of carving are consistent with that of 600-year-old artifact. And why would a Colonial trail-marker depict a knorr, a 14th-century ship?

The Kensington Rune Stone

The Kensington Rune Stone
Medieval Inscription... in Minnesota. Forensic geology confirms the carvings predate European settlement of Minnesota--so did Runic-speaking Native Americans carve it?

The Hooked X Rune

The Hooked X Rune
Medieval Runic Character ... on inscriptions found in Maine, Minnesota and Rhode Island. But this rare rune was only recently found in Europe. This conclusively disproves any hoax theory while also linking these three artifacts together.

Templars and Shroud of Turin

Interesting story yesterday that the Vatican has confirmed the Knights Templar brought the Shroud of Turin out of the Middle East during medieval times and kept custody of it for over a century in France. This is consitent with what many believe: that the Templars took many religious artifacts from Jerusalem during the Crusades and brought them back to Europe for "safe keeping." Here's a link to the story:

Knights Templar were not just soldiers. The scope of their activities - military, economic and diplomatic - are staggering..

Yes, I agree the Templars were much more than soldiers!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancient_Pueblo_Peoples

The So-called Native Americans (Bering Straits of 15-16000 yrs ago) didn't build The Pueblos hidden throughout the South Western US and State of Arizona it was again the Asiatic "Moors/Muurs" descended of the Ancient Moabites and The Builders of Islamic Spain all throughout when Europe was in its "Dark Ages" portion of History. As a hint: Those exiled "via' the Bering straits were dwellers of "Tee Pees and/or Tents" not Pueblos, Moors are the inventors of Mortar(Moor-Tar) Brick STRUCTURES aka STONE pueblos. The RULERS of these Moors "mysteriously vanished" or MAYBE NOT...

Much to consider...
