This book was a fun to read, though Blegen shows from the very beginning, that the issue is more complicated than everybody might think, by providing the reader with an insight how difficult the search for the truth can be. All participant`s accounts of discovery vary, all research results vary. Even if it was a hoax, its deeper purpose, the proof for the early arrival of North Europeans in America before Columbus, the truth has long been established for the creators to turn in their graves either by laughter of by joy: the finds of Lens aux Meadows, the Viking settlements in Newfoundland prove the early arrival of Northn Europeans in America!

6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Schmerguls VINE VOICE on October 18, 2004
Format: Hardcover
The Kensington Stone was found in 1898 three miles north of Kensington, Minn. That stone was in runic writing and said:

8 Swedes and 22 Norwegians on an expedition from Vinland westward. We had our camp by 2 rocky islets one day's journey north of this stone. We were out fishing one day. When we came home we found 10 men red with blood and dead. AVM save us from evil. We have 10 men from the sea to look after our ships, 14 days' journey from this island. Year 1362

This book pretty conclusively demonstates the inscription was made in the 19th century, even tho it is not by a rune specialist. But the book is a very, very fascinating story and I found reading the book most enjoyable.
