Format: Paperback
The first definitive linguistic volume on the authenticity of the artifact. A MUST-READ for scholars and researchers of Pre-Columbian North American history. Get this book to find out the facts about the Kensington Runestone, the carved rock left by a group of Norse explorers in 1362 A.D. in what is now western Minnesota. This was the first book published (by a professional scholar) to seriously challenge the notion that the runestone was a fraud, based upon the actual runes in evidence AND scholarly research of European languages. Since publication, a number of studies have been done which support the assertion, and add additional evidence that the carvings were authentic to the time. Dr. Hall was severely denounced by a number of critics, who continued to maintain an older, and poorly substantiated notion, concerning the characteristics of the runes and the use of the language of the rune-carver. It is interesting to note that an additional thirty years of research have added to, not subtracted from, the veracity of Dr. Hall's book.
