precisely as in Vinland, 66 years before. From Bayeaux Tapestry. Beaching a ship of this size is far more than a process of simply driving ashore; it is more science and skill than the landsman might imagine. Note sail "luffing", anchor man, lookout, oarsmen "backwatering,", sounding" pole" or, perhaps, a weighted line. The designer of this famous tapestry must have been intimately familiar with day to day seamanship and quite possibly an eyewitness to this event on the coast of France.
Seekers of history, truth, and mystery of humankind have been enlightened by our book, rewritten, smoothed, and edited by Diane Holloway, Ph.D.
The new book, "Rediscovering Vinland, Evidence of Ancient Viking Presence in America" and this program presents :
The Vinland Sagas in a
form, (removed from the website). This structured mode, seldom or never attempted
before, has been in the public domain for over 20 years with no refutations
so far offered. It has been accepted as reasonably valid in the National
Library of Iceland. It is a dramatic and enthralling sea story – now far
removed from "myth" - but found essentially true.
insights from this narrative enable finer delineation not only landfalls and
environs of “greater” .
. See: <The Sagas >
A narrowly circumscribed geographic site has been discovered and matched to Saga descriptions with numerous positive analogies. Another page (Viking Landfalls) enables the reader to access this terrain through Google Earth®. Now see it for yourself in a way that has heretofore been impossible! In the same manner you can trace landfalls of the coastline as well as numerous New England Artifacts discovered from colonial times.
in early colonial literature is that this area of recent discovery has
actually been thought to be the target site by educated early European
settlers. Quantitatively, well over half of all
survey of the watercourse actually declares an incursion, said to be by “---an
advanced culture” to the site, and establishes by scientific
methods its date, “---about a thousand years ago”,
precisely the period that the
of search for a “proof” have succeeded in discoveries within unrelated
but reputable scholastic papers. Read the result below -- a premise
describing a genetic factor within the aboriginal human population –
something even more astounding yet more positive a proof than any material artifact.
This determinant is far from an unlikely or unusual cultural
factor by either of the two contributing “races”.
It is difficult to rationally overturn prior established opinion that
Vinland Vikings had been driven away and

research into the native Narragansett Indian culture and finds in their
mores, language, and culture - just as the original settlers of Rhode Island
had - numerous indications that their parentage had originated in icy
Northlands. Roger Williams, prominent settler and founder of the city of
Providence in Rhode Island, was an educated Englishman, from youth familiar
with the halls of England’s Parliament, graduate of Cambridge University,
friend and champion of the Narragansett Indians who had saved his life and
granted his colony to him, in 1643 published thus: “Wise
and Judicious men, with whom I have discoursed, maintaine
their Originall to be from the Northward
-------- to draw their line from Iceland, because ------ etc.“
Plain talk on the genetic theme. For a more readable discourse on the matter, an essay of explanation pertaining to immunology evolution -- without using the word "evolution." It includes even more Bibliography.
Visiting Vinland landfalls from outer space. An exercise with Google Earth® which replaces map pages and two others. Download Google Earth free from web and follow the Vinland Voyagers along the coast to their destination. Locate landings within meters. The exercise coordinates Saga descriptions with real places and you can observe these yourself through modern space photography. This --- is adventure !!

Advancemnts in research and supporting material make this book a more interesting read and reference for the historian. It is particularly improved with more specific local historical anomalies in close support of the theme of this program.

Frederick N. Brown at a presentation of the rare and generally overlooked "Norroena"
set of 1906 by Dr. Rasmus B. Anderson, linguist and former Ambassador from the
United States to Denmark. Wide ranging, in 15 volumes, it covers much N.
European folklore and legend. Vol. 15 is invaluable for Vinland material
