Is this based on something you are curently reading ? --Marc Pasquin 09:14, 10 April 2007 (PDT)

We talked about runestones in my Swedish 202 class earlier this year and I've kind of thought of writing something to this effect. With a stronger scandinavian influence *there*, I thought this might be something of more *there* than *here*. BoArthur 11:54, 10 April 2007 (PDT)

Note that in IB English, henges are called tawells. See Rationalism for a description of the "American Stonetawell". Not to worry -- it's entirely modern so shouldn't affect your idea at all. In fact, the Rationalists might have taken some inspiration from these earlier Viking tawells.

Re: "A minor settlement was found at the northernmost tip of the island, the only verified Viking settlement in North America to present." I suppose that should read "...outside of Greenland"! as Greenland is a part of North America. Elemtilas 17:41, 10 April 2007 (PDT)


Expound on the inscription in Cherokee, in the article, even if you assign it to some university faculty somewhere in the NAL. BoArthur 18:17, 27 August 2015 (PDT)

Consider it done. Sorry about that, it was based on the real-life finding that it was just a faked inscription based on a Masonic illustration. It was originally thought to be Cherokee, which is why I decided that *there* it could be a Cherokee inscription from the early 1800s or so. Juan Martin Velez Linares 9:00, 28 August 2015 (CDT)
I liked the idea. I figured you could flesh out a bit more with what you'd come up with. (^.^) BoArthur 13:23, 28 August 2015 (PDT)
