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.

Brody new novel: "The Oath of Nimrod"

In September the 4th novel in my "Templars in America" series came out. This is a continuation of my exploration, using actual sites and artifacts, of the untold history of North America.  Site/artifacts included in this book include America's Stonehenge, the Bat Creek Stone, the Grave Creek Tablet and burial mound, the Vinland Map, the Narragansett Rune Stone, Judaculla Rock, the Newport Tower, the Westford Knight, and Burrows Cave.

In "The Oath of Nimrod," protagonists Cam and Amanda return for another adventure, this one triggered by hundreds of giant human skeletons unearthed in burial mounds across North America in the 19th century.  A secret CIA brainwashing program in the 1960s known as MK-Ultra and a mysterious blood oath made by blindfolded Freemasons also fuel the plot.
The book is available on Amazon (link below) as well as on Kindle and Nook:

"This is the forest primeval. The murmuring pines and the hemlocks,
Bearded with moss, and in garments green, indistinct in the twilight,
Stand like Druids of eld, with voices sad and prophetic,
Stand like harpers hoar, with beards that rest on their bosoms.
Loud from its rocky caverns, the deep-voiced neighboring ocean
Speaks, and in accents disconsolate answers the wail of the forest."

David Brody, you and I know the
pathways of New England are ancient
and some may have dated to the ending
of the last ice age. Surely you must recognize the apt opening lines to
Evangeline, and why we must picture
in our minds eye the landscape as it
once majestically was, not as it is now... overdevelop'd loot'd strip'd
plunder'd and rendered into what it
perhaps can never be again. Is this
not the backdrop for the artifacts
that are such a grand riddle? All
that may have stoneholes nearby or
alighn to ley lines and a medieval
logic that predates I.Newton's own
alchemy results? Truely a poet can
strip away the modern astro-turf
and designer shrubbery to get to
the core inspiration. In thinking
over the stoneholes Joan Hope noticed
up in New Ross Nova Scotia, is this
in tandem with some very ancient settlements that did not uproot
stumps from auld growth trees as
the English often aggressively did
much later? Truly Longfellow the
poet had his sensibilities, he was
a true gentleman in all meanings of the word, but he sensed the earlier
landscape. If you or I go to New
Ross, now, we cannot reconstruct
Joan Hope's work, the landscape
has been changed. Her insights into
something that indeed must have been
a colonial era dwelling or way much
earlier is all over her books, and
inside them. If she was indeed most correct, would you humour looking
again at what she thought? I think
that little inlet that extends inside
the lower section of Nova Scotia is
enough to suggest a port where the
Atlantic storms of winter deep are
lessen'd and soften's as to their
gusts and blasts. Her home was near
a most ancient riddle. She knew this.
You undoubtedly are at work on book 5! Truly she needs a looking into!

The New Ross site in Nova Scotia has always intrigued me. I will begin digging around--I like your suggestion of incorporating it into book #5!

David- I have been researching historical investigations for a docu-series I am working on, and wanted to get in touch. I couldn't find your contact info anywhere on here, so sorry to leave a comment. If you could email me at I can explain a bit more. Thank you for your time.
