My own comments 
about the Runestone are:

"While the Runestone did not fall from the sky, the Runestone did fall from the limestone rim rock at “HEAVNER,” (Old Norse for “High point”)  when the soil beneath the limestone eroded away.

The runes were carved on the surface of the limestone rim rock BEFORE the year AD 1,000.  (The rune set changed about AD 1,000.  This rune set was the older set.)  The old runes clearly say “GROW VALLEY”

Sometime BEFORE AD 1,000, during the “hunterss went everywhere" period, a Scandinavian man stood on the rim rock, looked over the fertile valley below, and thought, “I must tell those, who will follow, where they can grow food.”

Can the class reach a consensus opinion?

  1. What episode does Dr. Woodard advocate?

    Rene Robert Cavelier de La Salle's nearby March 19, 1687, grisly, brain-blasted, murder location-scene, which also involved bloody gore of night-time hatchet murders of three others (Nephew of La Salle, Crevel Moranget, and La Salle's two longtime Native American assistants Saget, and Nika);

    Do you think the episode happened? Cut have happened but have nothing to do with the “Heavner” Runestone.

    My own comments about the Runestone are? I believe the Runestone from the limestone rim rock at “Heavner” is a Norse/Viking runestone . The old rune clerly say “Grow Valley”. It is found on a natural place for hunters to have a camp for hunting at the Ozarks.

  3. I believe the Heavner Runestone is Norse. There may have been a convention amongst Norse travellers and hunters that they look for the runes "Grow Valley"
    on a rock rim. Once found, they would have known they had found the right valley.
