sometimes referred to as "nails in a coffin"...the post is "self-ex·plan·a·to·ry " (easily understood; not needing explanation)

self explanatory - Google Search

is shows the fairy tale of American isolation is just that - a fairy tale. You visualize all the books and history that have been destroyed by the wars of Europe (Napoleon, WW1, WW2., the list is endless), it is easy for historians to say "you have no proof" and go their merry way with a smile. BUT some have survived..and made it into a publication from 1970....enjoy.

NEWFOUNDLAND-NOVA SCOTIA PRIME MERIDIAN
Another Historical Citation
Spirit Pond Rune Stones

Lawrence C. Wroth’s 1970 book, The Voyages of Giovanni da Verrazzano 1524-1528, arrived on the doorstep yesterday. It was a cast-off from the library of the University of California, San Diego. On the inside cover it had three ink stamps on the checkout slip with dates of 11 Mar 1997, 18 Mar 1997, and 26 Nov 2002. Not much circulation by any stretch of the imagination. The piggy-bank lost $46.72 for the book and associated shipping costs.

The book has already paid for itself.

Just a few minutes after the reading began, we ran across this passage, and footnote, on pp. 20-21, in the background discussion on the late 15th/early 16th century explorations of the North American continent. Wroth writes:

“If It was through common report and manuscript maps that matters of this kind first came to be known, it was by means of the printed book that they were given verification, record, and wide dissemination. The earliest reference in a printed book to the English association with American discoveries is found in the second, or 1508, issue of the Claudius Ptolemy Geographia of Rome, 1507.[4] This issue of the noble work of the Alexandrian contains the world map of Johannes Ruysch (12) and a geographical commentary by Marcus Beneventanus, a Celestine monk. Simply for the bibliographical record it may be said here that the Beneventanus commentary does not appear in any known copy of the first edition of 1507, the Ruysch map is found in several copies of that edition in American and foreign libraries.[5] Beneventanus informs us in his commentary that in a letter to the editors of the Geographia covering the transmittal of the drawing from which his map was to be engraved, Johannes Ruysch wrote that he himself once sailed from the southern part of England so far that when his ship reached the parallel of 53° from the equator toward the pole it had thereafter followed that parallel to the shores of the East “PER ANGULUM NOCTIS.”[6] There is good reason to believe, with Harrisse, that the original drawing of the Ruysch map and the letter of its maker which accompanied it to Rome were productions anterior to July 1506.[7] In that case, of course, the voyage would have been of an even earlier year and could not have been the exploration under English auspices that Sebastian Cabot carried out in the far northwestern waters in 1508-1509.[8] It seems to be generally agreed, furthermore, that Ruysch did not accompany the John Cabot voyages of 1497 or 1498. These eliminations leave us with the probability that he was a member of one of those expeditions sent out from 1501 to 1505 by the Bristol syndicates. Unfortunately, there is little correspondence between what might have been learned by Ruysch in the course of his voyage to the Newfoundland area and the representation he made of that area upon his celebrated map.[9]” (Wroth 1970: 20-21)

What is “ANGULUM NOCTIS?” We checked out the footnote:

“6. Marci Benevantani orbis nova description” in Ptolemy, Geographiae (1508), leaf a 3, recto. The translation of the Beneventanus phrase “per angulum noctis” as “by a hidden gulf” as suggested in Williamson I, p. 221, n. 3, has not been universally accepted. The point is discussed by R. A. Skelton in Williamson II, p. 305, n. 4, on the basis of information received by him from E. G. R. Taylor to the effect THAT “PER ANGULUM NOCTIS” IS AN ASTROLOGICAL TERM WHICH IN THIS EMPLOYMENT SEEMS TO MEAN THAT IN HIS VOYAGE RUYSCH GOT BEYOND 90°W AND REACHED ASIA” [caps are present-author’s emphasis]. (Wroth 1970: 21)
-----------
Asia, ante 1508, was understood to lie to the WEST of Europe. This thought was entrenched in the understanding of the world.

The geographic coordinate set of Claudius Clavus which accompanied his First Map of the North are referenced to a Prime Meridian lying to the WEST of the western edge of Greenland. We have geo-located this Prime Meridian as slicing down between Newfoundland and Nova Scotia.

‘90° WEST’ was a meridian (longitude). In the early 16th century, and ante, lines of longitude and latitude were interchangeably referred to as parallels.

“90°W” became the Line of Demarcation (LoD) of the 1494 Treaty of Tordesillas. It was referred to as the already-existing WESTERN PARALLEL in Jaime Ferrar’s 1495 letter to the Sovereigns of Spain explaining the geodetic positioning of the LoD.

This is the “90°W” (“per angulum noctis”) of the Beneventanus’ commentary found in the 1508 Geographia. (cf. Wroth 1970)

“90°W” is illustrated as the 360°/0° meridian on the late-16th century map folio within the Skalholt maps.

We have termed this longitude meridian the Newfoundland-Nova Scotia Prime Meridian (NF-NS PM).
-----------
The geographical coordinates on the Map Stone and Inscription Stone of the 1401/1402 Golden Year-dated Spirit Pond Rune Stones are referenced (longitude) to…the Newfoundland-Nova Scotia Prime Meridian (NF-NS PM).

Those rune stones found by Walter Elliot are absolutely authentic to the date which is written in a Golden Year dating code on the artifact(s).

might be an exciting weekend with the "information" dumps I think are coming. Speaking of information dumps, the "wild" rumor flying all around the "net" is that our favorite guy is back. that would be Scott Wolter of the "Hooked X' fame. You know, that "Hooked X" that is found in the LATIN language, found on all those "LATIN" medieval documents and from the VATICAN, no less.....

so lets get started with the "excuse" of "professional" historians that the "Hooked X' is the invention of a "farmer" who outsmarted ALL of the world with his little rock that was carved before he moved across the "OCRONUS OCCID[N]IALIS". I'm really trying very hard to honor my New Years resolution to stop being sarcastic......:oops:

And so, here we are with a little (really alot more information), about our favorite of all people (not really the most favorite, but then --- whose counting). The historians, being the linear people they are, have pegged the end of the Vikings at midnight on the night of Dec. 31, 999 A.D. The next second is now Medieval history and the age of ??????. ANYWAY, a most notable of people has posted a narrative of a Viking saga and its here for your viewing and comment pleasure.....enjoy.

this first narrative is very interesting as it illustrates the "story telling" as the historical and al·le·gor·i·cal (adjective - constituting or containing allegory) method of "navigation"......the story is dated to "The Norse in Laval, Quebec circa 1010-1020 AD." (notice the dates --- make note of the dates....please).

"We have thus been able to demonstrate that the earliest megaliths originated in northwest France and spread along the sea routes of the Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts in three successive principal phases (Fig. 5). Their expansion coincided with other social and economic changes of Neolithic and Copper Age societies beyond the scope of this article. The older generation of archaeologists were correct concerning a maritime diffusion of the megalithic concept. They were wrong regarding the region of origin and the direction of the megalithic diffusion. The megalithic movements must have been powerful to spread with such rapidity at the different phases, and the maritime skills, knowledge, and technology of these societies must have been much more developed than hitherto presumed. This prompts a radical reassessment of the megalithic horizons and invites the opening of a new scientific debate regarding the maritime mobility and organization of Neolithic societies, the nature of these interactions through time, and the rise of seafaring."
An excellent report by P. Schultz Paulsson.
Given the conclusion written of in the report, I have to ask a simple question - What is the basis for the North American Megalithic monuments?
One hypothesis, typically given in response to claims that the North American monuments represent a diffusion across the Atlantic from Europe, is that the societal impulse that created the N.A. monuments arose spontaneously, and entirely disconnected, from any influence external to North America. In other words, there was no cultural contact between Europe and North America.
It is interesting that the conclusion of the report is very explicit in saying that the Megalithic monument impulse found in the Med and continental Europe was a DIFFUSION event, in part through maritime transmission routes. In other words, the data shows the rise of monuments in Europe were not geographically isolated, spontaneous events. The monuments were a DIFFUSION event.
Europe was diffusion, but the Megalithic monuments in North America were independent and spontaneous.
A head-scratcher...

Radiocarbon dates and Bayesian modeling support maritime diffusion model for megaliths in Europe

FOLKTON & LAVANT DRUMS
There is a nice paper whose link is floating around the different Facebook sites that I monitor. This morning I grabbed the link, opened the paper, and ran the numerical values in the 7920 PARTICULA SYSTEM MODEL that we have been working from the early 1300s Icelandic manuscript Gks 1812, 4to. You all are well aware of us hammering that 7920 particula model as being Megalithic.

Of course, Megalithic is NEOLITHIC, so we are talking about the same thing. However, I am “fringe” – according to the debunkers and skeptics – because my research is focused on the North American rune stones and the Newport Tower, so be forewarned.

The authors of the paper did a nice job. It was a very interesting read.

The 7920 PARTICULA SYSTEM MODEL showed a hit on the largest drum. Its circumference value, when extrapolated against the 1440 minutes in a 24-hour day, returned the Ancient value of Pi. The circumference value of the largest drum is the absolute value that corresponds to diameter value within the 7920 system. A final extrapolation shows that the values are latitude-matched to the latitude of Folkton.

Folkton 1 has a diameter value, which expands into a circumference measure and then converts into other values, that all lie nestled within the 7920 PARTICULA SYSTEM.

Interesting results.

The 600-year mystery of the final destination of Zheng He is just as puzzling as the development of the Americas. This book focuses on Kunyu Wanguo Quantu, a Chinese world map attributed to Matteo Ricci presenting to Emperor Wanli in 1602. However, by analyzing the original historical documents and etymology of place names, geography and the colophons, the map is incompatible with the authorship of European cartographers or Ricci. The information is consistent with the voyages by Zheng He 160 years before Ricci. This leads to the shocking conclusion that the map was done on surveys during Zheng He's voyages, crediting China as the pioneer of world discovery and globalization. The European world maps of the 15th and 16th century are to some extent derived from Chinese information scattered along the routes. Using forensic logic, the author questions the three doctrines in history: Zheng He only reached East Africa; Columbus discovered America; and Ricci brought western cartography to China.

the beat goes on...and on....and on...someday the "historians" are going to look back and say "damn, ...........". (no they won't - the group has them in a corner....). Boy, did the builders of the NT (Newport Tower) ever get so lucky with the grist mill !!!!!. AND the worst part of this is the "experts" have yet to provide ONE NAME OF ANYBODY who worked on the NT and this is KNOWN HISTORY....yea baby, go for it... JUST ONE NAME..and proof it.

NEWPORT TOWER
White Quartz Cobbles
Megalithic Spacing

If you ever visit the NT you will notice that there are four prominent, white quartz cobbles laid into the structure’s exterior. You can’t miss them. Things being what they are, windmill enthusiasts scoff at any notion that the azimuthal-placement of the cobbles represents anything OTHER than random coincidence. We non-windmill enthusiasts think, otherwise.

Therefore, we non-windmill enthusiasts have to render a plausible scenario that the cobble placement has MEANING. The meaning has to be coherent, there has to be a pattern that connects all four of the cobbles together, and the pattern has to reinforce the overall design scheme.

One cobble is at Due North. The significance of this marker is readily apparent.

A second cobble is situated at the rising point azimuth of the Sun on the Summer Solstice. Additionally, this cobble is displaced from the EGG by 132° of rotation.

A third cobble is situated at 228° azimuth. This represents a displacement from Due North, in a CCW direction, of 132°.

The fourth cobble is situated at 84°. This azimuth is achieved by starting at Due South (180°) and then moving 2X 132° in a clockwise direction. Your end point is 444°, which when re-scaled to a 360° circumference, drops at 84°. This is the Fireplace.

The NT is all about the CIRCLE – and the Sun. The Sun rises on the eastern horizon at some point (depends on the day of the year) and then DAYLIGHT-travels along the horizon clockwise to its setting point. After the Sun sets on the western horizon, it conceptually continues to move around the circle of the NT. This DARKNESS-travel carries it past the Due North Point (midnight) until it arrives at its next DAYLIGHT-rising point. Throughout the year, as the Earth’s axial tilt adjusts, the LENGTH OF DAY and LENGTH of NIGHT ADJUSTS, as well (which means that the rising and setting points are moving, an expansion and contraction).

The quartz cobbles are situated on the (exterior) circle of the NT. They all have a direct, or an iterative, spacing of 132°.

132° is a MEGALITHIC SPACING.
