Possible Viking Settlement in Canada Revealed in Satellite Images

A lot of disparate cultures & ethnic groups are believed to have shaped the ” New World ” : Chinese anchor stones have been found in California, an obscure item called ” The Bat Creek Stone ” in Eastern TN – inscribed with paleo Hebrew script, pottery not too dissimilar to Japanese Jomon ware, for example, & the controversial 9,000 year – old ” Spirit Cave Man ” & Kennewick Man with Caucasian bone structures. But Vikings & early Mediterranean seafarers seem to be the favorite of scholars almost globally.

As I’m 1 / 4th Cherokee, I wonder if the early Native Americans met & mingled with other travelers & traders ( & by ” mingled “, I mean intermarried, intercourse, reproduction, family groups, family trees….. 🙂 ). It would certainly mean revising a LOT of history & getting used to new perspectives, challenging & puncturing many preconceived ideas & concepts.

But that’s what discovery & exploration are ABOUT !
