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.

Update on Tucson Lead Artifacts

Those who read my novel Powdered Gold will recall the controversy over the Tucson lead artifacts discovered in the 1920s. Scott Wolter and other geologists have examined them and concluded that, based on the geology, the artifacts are at least many hundreds of years old, validating their 8th Century AD dating. But some Latin scholars have analyzed the inscriptions and concluded they were lifted from modern Latin textbooks by a hoaxer. Recently an expert on medieval Latin studied the artifacts and has declared them to be genuine:

In my mind, this pretty much resolves this issue, making these artifacts some of the most important pieces of evidence of early exploration of America.

Mr. Brody,
I am reading your Templar novels and recently read Zena Halpern’s book on Oak Island. Fascinating info and I look forward to reading more.

It would certainly help me, and others I think, if a timeline could be created that outlines Templar activities over the centuries. I have found a few but they do not include any North America activities. Certainly, a timeline on just the North America treks, missions, and voyages would be very helpful.

One other item, that i have thought about is DNA testing of North American Native Americans that might show mixed marriages with Europeans as have been inferred in your novels and in Zena’s book. Do you know of anything in this area?

Thanks

Zack O’Donnell

Hi Zack. Good idea on a timeline. I've never seen one. 1179--Cremona Document voyage. 1398--Prince Henry Sinclair. Those are the only 2 that I know of, though the Diana Muir journals speak of a series of voyages in the 1350s and later. As for DNA testing, I know that some testing was done with the Mi'kmaq and the Sinclair clan but nothing conclusive was learned. Hopefully as the science progresses, we'll learn more. Thanks for reading and for reaching out!
