BEFORE COLUMBUS, by Dr. Samuel Marble, 1980, A.S. Barnes and Co., Inc., Cranbury, NJ 08512 and Thomas Yoseloff Ltd, Magdalen House, 136-148 Tooley Street, London SE1 2TT, England, ISBN 0-498-02370-2. The subtitle is “The New History of Celtic, Egyptian, Phoenician, Viking, Black African, and Asian Contacts and Impacts in the Americas before 1492”. Be sure to read my short bio of Dr. Marble at the end of this article.

A number of “Before Columbus” books have been written since the cultural ice-breaking books by Barry Fell and others in the sixties and seventies. Each surveyed the then known repositories of pre-Columbian evidence and added the evidence privy to the author, plus their opinion and insight on it all. Dr. Marble’s wonderful book is no less than these others but stands out with his extensive knowledge of Celtic and Christian influences in the new world, especially in the Incan society, and some little known but revealing details of the Columbus voyages and influences of the Egyptians and the Vikings.

Is Metamora Logo An Ancient Keltic Face ?

by, John J White, III & Beverley H Moseley, Jr

Originally published in The Midwestern Epigraphic Society Newsletter

 

Many of the advertisements for the Metamora Museum of Ethnographic Art feature a photograph of the sculptured stone face shown below. The Museum Director Paul J Hendricks represents this artifact conservatively to be American-made colonial art (< 1840), and he displays it after years of collecting as his favorite find. The authors, on the other hand, had no trouble agreeing that there is a significant probability that scientific investigation will conclude that this artifact can be added to the hypothetical Dr Barry Fell collection of ancient Keltic evidence found in North America, especially the New England region.

Let us explain that the Metamora Museum of Ethnographic Art is a private institution (donations requested) located in the Odd Fellows Hall of Historic Metamora, an 1838 Canal Town {www.metamoraindiana.com} in southeast Indiana. It is operated as a tourist attraction with a canal, railroad train, grist mill, and 50-60 shops selling food, handicrafts, and related domestic products.

West Africans Traded in the Caribbean Basin Before Columbus According to Van Sertima

By, John J White, III

Originally Published in The Midwestern Epigraphic Society Newsletter Volume 25

 

Ivan Van Sertima and Barry Fell made major impacts on the ancient history establishment in 1976 when they published their famous books. The MES joined forces with Barry Fell in 1983 and soon acquired the eastern Kentucky Ogham sites as a primary interest. The question of looking into the findings of Ivan Van Sertima, Thor Heyerdahl, George Carter, Clyde Keeler, or many others could not be given a large share of the precious energy available. With the passing of Victor Moseley before the Kentucky work was finished, the MES was responsive only to new opportunities that were easily acquired. These were Joe Mahan (ISAC), Cyclone Covey, Ethel Stewart, Zena Halpern, and Russell Burrows (Burrows Cave) plus some notable locals like Hu McCulloch, Bill Conner, Victor Kachur, and Ken Zimmerman.

Mahan, Covey, and Stewart had interest in Asia (Native American origins) Fell was the expert on Polynesia and North Africa and there was little American interest in sub-Saharan Africa, except for Van Sertima and his impressive underlying Journal of African Civilizations. Fell gave some attention to Van Sertima, but as fortune would have it, there appeared more dividends to be reaped but responding to South African experts, such as Raymond Dart and Credo Mutwa. The reports of African faces on Burrows Cave artifacts (allegedly Carthaginian sailors) was the first MES contribution to African history. The current author has made additional small efforts in recent years.

Lenape History Suppression

By,

The Evidence indicates that The People of America spoke the SHORE (OLD NORSE) language, from Hudson Bay to the Isthmus of Panama, when the Europeans Invaded.

 The NORSE CATHOLIC HISTORY is still being SUPPRESSED!

 In AD 1346 4,000 Norse vanished from Greenland.

 Where DID they go?

 Dr. Myron Paine wanted to find out.
  He found the Maalan Aarum, the Lenape “Bible.”

 Then he found eight volumes of Reider T. Sherwin’s books, The Viking and the Red Man.  In the forward of volume IV, Sherwin concluded that the Algonquin Indian (a.k.a. Lenape) Language was Old Norse.

 Dr. Paine used the 30,000 Lenape words to decipher the Maalan Aarum.  The first two chapters are the Lenape Bible—Genesis.  The word “Lenape” appears twice in Genesis.

 Dr. Paine recognized that chapter 3 was history.  He used the words in The Viking and the Red Man to decipher chapter 3.  

 Dr. Frank Esposito, Kean University, knew Lenape.  He encouraged students to vet the Maalan Aarum.  Craig Judge deciphered 10 verses of Chapter 4.  

 Judge’s achievement is evidence that The Viking and the Red Man is valid knowledge.  The The Viking and the Red Man can be used by persistent scholars, who want to understand Lenape words from four centuries to four seconds ago.  

 The Viking and the Red Man has over 30,000 Lenape (a.k.a. Algonquin) words with their meanings and the original Old Norse pronunciation. Many place names in eastern North America are Lenape.  Many cities, over 10 U.S. states, and 3 provinces in Canada have Lenape names. Dr. Paine posted the first 37 deciphered stanzas of chapter 3 on the Internet as LENAPE LAND.  The format works with Smart Phones. The Lenape history clearly shows that the 4,000 Norse WALKED to America.

Lenape

by, Myron Paine, Ph.D.
NORSE CATHOLICS
have been in America
for 1,000 years.
     Myron Paine has devoted 14 years of research to Norse Catholics in America.  He started by making a hypothesis:
     During the Little Ice Age ancestors of the Lenape-speaking people walked, en masse, on the ice from Norse Greenland to Merica.
     When the evidence he found became overwhelmingly positive he created a research orientated web site called Frozen Trail to America.  Then he wrote a pair of books by the same name.  Unlike many other books, these books have a high resale value.
     During his research Paine recognized the oldest history in America.  The Lenape history tells of a 4,000 mile migration that took 150 years.  Paine created a blog, The LENAPE EPIC,  to tell the migration story.
     As he deciphered the LENAPE HISTORY, Paine realized that the history shared episodes with the VIKING WATERWAY in western Minnesota.  He created a research blog about the waterway.  
     During that research Steve Hilgren made a hypothesis that the “Vinland of west” on the Kensington rune stone was really western Minnesota.  The LENAPE word “Wynland” describes land in western Minnesota. So Paine created another educational Blog, WYNLAND of WEST.  On September 28, 1213, he and Karl Hoenke took a bus load of people to look at the evidence.  When they knew the story, two people on the bus recognized other evidence of Norse presence in western Minnesota.
     As the research evidence became more convincing Paine created yet another blog: the PARADIGM SHIFT.  He advocates that the paradigm shift has already begun.  When viewers look at the evidence on his web site and the five blogs, they, too, will realize that the Norse Catholics have been trying to live in peace in North America for a thousand years.  
     The “Columbus was first” paradigm, along with “pagan savages“paradigm, were employed by the 17th century English to cover up and erase their horrendous acts against humanity.  The 17th century English profoundly distorted the American history, which is taught in our schools to this day.

The Oklahoma Runestone

by Cyclone Covey, Ph.D.

 

Originally published in Ancient American Magazine March/April 1994.

 

In the 1830’s, soon after the forced removal of aboriginal tribes into Indian Territory, Chocktaw hunters roaming vast, vacant, forested hills came upon the mammoth runestone in an idyllic vale of Poteau, Mt.  It had stood immemorially hidden in its remote ravine.  Gloria Farley first hiked to it in 1928 when no path yet led the two miles uphill from her home town, Heavener, Oklahoma.  A precocious little girl, she realized c.1930 that the large characters carved on “Indian Rock” were runes; but not until 1951, on moving back to Heavener from Ohio, did she clear away the gray lichen and begin serious study of this “billboard” (her word).  She measured the protective semicircle of overhanging cliffs at 40′ high.  The huge stone below was an upright gray slab of very hard, fine-grained Pennsylvania Savanna sandstone 12′ high, 10′ wide, and 16″ thick.  Geologists told her it once projected the cliff above and fell to its present position in a primeval time.  The large runes, 6 1/2 to 9 1/2″ high, stretch horizontally nearly two yards (69″) across the west face 3/4 to 1″ wide.  Tool marks, 1/4 to 3/16″ deep, were detectable but the sharp-chiseled edges had weather-rounded despite the natural shelter (Westville Symposium Papers #17).
