Re: Have mainstream scholars studied New England's megaliths

I do not doubt that there were numerous cases of pre-Columbian “contact” with the Americas. On both coasts of both continents. There are just too many “out of place artifacts” to explain away otherwise. I am very very very skeptical of out of place pre-Columbian artifacts in the Americas coming fro...

Re: Have mainstream scholars studied New England's megaliths

As I understand it, the agreement between Spain and Portugal over the division of the Americas was arrived at before Columbus. Pre-columbian contact with the Americas is real, because we know that the vikings came via Greenland to Canada in the 11th c. and Amerindians came via Sibera to Alaska c. 1...

Re: Have mainstream scholars studied New England's megaliths

Dear EP Grondine, If you find any indication of impact phenomena, be sure let me know. What do you think of the claim that there was a Vela Supernova that brightened the sky of Mesopotamia in 10,000-8,000 BC about the time that settlement agriculture began and it made an impact on their cultural de...

Re: Have mainstream scholars studied New England's megaliths

"Atlantis?" Really?? "Atlantis???" That's for a different thread. How about gremlins? Can we get a defense of gremlins too? Or Leprechauns???

Re: Have mainstream scholars studied New England's megaliths

@ Rako: A heads up for you... You won't be making any converts & you won't be gaining any advocates. Just sayin'... The only thing I wish to make people advocates for is the assessment of the main megalithic sites. Surely such analyses by mainstream researchers is something everyone, including skep...

Re: Have mainstream scholars studied New England's megaliths

That said, at Gungywomp(?sp) they have found "...Native American artifacts include arrowheads, stone flakes and pottery fragments." No statement as to the types of the "arrowheads", nor as to their chert sources, The same for the pottery fragments. No carbon 14 dates for the hearths. David Barron, ...

Re: Have mainstream scholars studied New England's megaliths

Hi Rako I enjoyed the map of the distribution of nations which you posted, but it is post contact. The map is not having a post contact R1-M173 population in the Americas http://i.imgur.com/E7YUG9A.png One reason is the question why there is so much more R1 DNA in north central canada than in Misso...

Re: Have mainstream scholars studied New England's megaliths

There is no shortage of genuine Amerindian petroglyphs . Note how there is nothing like these at Gungywump . The stone piles at Gungwamp are something like Amerindian stone piles elsewhere like at Queen's Fort, ie. piles of rocks in stone or circle formation. This is more reason for a real study to...

Re: Have mainstream scholars studied New England's megaliths

But none of the "facts " are evidence for Amerindians having built the the structures or provides a date for them . This is why I think a mainstream team of archaeologists should investigate the site - we know it is a mix of Amerindian and colonial settlement and we don't know who built which struc...

Re: Have mainstream scholars studied New England's megaliths

How about these "facts": FACT: Indians in New England in both pre- and post-contact New England did indeed use sacred sites featuring structures built of field stones. FACT: In Rhode Island there exists what has been called by some historians the Narragansett stony fort complexes. Queen's Fort, Wolf...

Re: Have mainstream scholars studied New England's megaliths

The line of stones with a meander / stone "row" has not been dated and looks like it could have been erected any time This is why I'd like to have professionals examine this site. If it has lots of Amerindian artifacts, pillars from a loghouse, and then we find the stone row, it should be worth a r...

Re: Have mainstream scholars studied New England's megaliths

If the site near Pequot was English made in the period 1635 or later when the English came, it seems the English should have known the settlement in 1654 as one of their own. The letter about what its author considered to be a strange stone fort in the region is just one of several clues about the s...

Re: Have mainstream scholars studied New England's megaliths

The more I look at these sites the more they look like relatively recent i.e. a few hundred years at most . And those wishing them to be much older seem to be grasping at at anything that will convince , geomancy , astronomy etc . whilst ignoring the more likely mundane explanations . This is from ...
