##minty's message didn't make it to my computer. So this one for him/her. I
have presented and will continue to present background knowledge and none in
this group has up to now presented so many references both to Archaeologists
works(of course mostly Swedish ones) and to other works where the background
for findings and reports from Hudson Bay to the Black Sea has been linked
with existing documents contemporary with the datings. IF there are people
here who are incapable of seing the picture, I can't help them. Others here
and elsewhere do. IF there are naysayers here who wants to abuse because
they believe that all important information from background up to edited
peer-viewed articles must have been edited in English, then it say more of
their lack of skill in the field they discuss than about me and mine! IF
there are people here who doesn't wan't to do the needed background reading
and only want to lean to other scholars opinions/conclusions/assumptions
etc, then they are the one who have problems.
Having many bolls in the air doesn't mean what ##minty believes, but that's
ok I will show what I mean in the combined case Ivar Bardson - lawman Paul
Knutson and lawman Hauk Erlandson from later period and the Leif
Eriksson -Vinland - Newfoundland and the rest of NA on the other. What's
been sadly forgotten also by scholars of archaeology is the fact that there
aren't one but many tellings about the Vinland voyages. Some in Sagas, some
in Annals, some in Diplomas, some in religious documents. That they missed
what most scholars of History missed, the fact that the earliest mentioning
of Vinland in west doesn't origin from Norse nor from Adam of Bremen, well
that's an other story which I am not will reveal before I print it.
