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.

This Saturday 7/23 I will be leading a free tour of the Westford Knight sites in and around Westford, MA. All are welcome. Here is our itinerary:

1. 10:15. Meet at Abbot Middle School parking lot and walk to Knight carving. Address of school is 25 Depot Street, Westford.

2. 10:45. Drive to Westford library to view Boat Stone.

3. 11:15. Drive to Tyngsboro Map Stone.

4. 12:00. Drive to Druid Hill in Lowell. Brown bag lunch at park on site.

5. 1:15. Drive to America's Stonehenge in North Salem, NH. Note there is entrance fee to get in.

Obviously, folks can skip the last site or 2 if they want(yes, I realize these sites may be only tangentially related to the Knight carving). My only request is I would like a head count. People can email me at .

My cell is 978-821-1023 for anyone who may need to contact me.

Hello David-

I just finished your book and I found it fascinating. I devoured it in a matter of hours finding it hard to put down. I'm actually disappointed to see it on the shelf knowing that I've finished it.
I've turned to the internet to fuel my passion for this subject and actually went to Westford to view the carving during my lunch hour today. The stone was wet making it a bit more difficult to read and it also had some leaves on it, but the sword was a clear as day.
I wanted to thank you for writing such a great book. I understand from one of my Brothers that you may come to our Masonic Lodge sometime in the future. I would welcome the opportunity to meet and speak with you, as would many of my Masonic brothers.

All the best,

Just discovered your books; looking forward to reading them. Wondering if you would have a problem with the photos on your blog being pinned to Pinterest? I will absolutely credit your blog and/or the photographer (whichever you wish). Please just respond to this comment if you give me permission; I don't want to mess up any copyrights for you.

Sure thing, Beth. If you would credit the blog, that would be great. Can I ask what Pinterest is?
