THE LENAPE HISTORY OF AMERICA,
AD  1344
Those of the north agreed.
Those of the east agreed.
Over the waters, over the frozen sea
They went to enjoy it

       _________PART B _______
The Waiting Ground

Most LENAPE had hoped to get to Milwaukee.  

But a few of the hunters knew there was a much better place.

At that better place there was a river there that ran with fresh water all winter long.
[The LENAPE called “fresh” water, “White” water.] 

At that better place there were woods, berries, fish, birds and animals to eat.  Even in the coldest sunny day, a person could rest in the shelter of a warm hillside.

DISCUSSION

The Wikipedia site lists four Rune stones, HEAVNER, POTEAU, SHAWNEE, and PAWNEE.

 The Wikipedia author also wrote that all of them, except a 20% chance of the HEAVER stone being older, are “modern,” which is another way of writing “Hoax.”


Make a brief list of arguements against the statements of the Wikipedia author.  

Describe a possible scenario that could explain the four rune stones, which were found where they were in the condition they were.

  1. Author also wrote that all of them, except a 20% chance of the HEAVER stone being older.

    HEAVER stone arguments:

    1. The 20% is like weather forecast, if it rains it is 100%, if it isn’t rain it is 0 %. If it is old, what I believe, is how old.?
    2. That Swedish railroad worker should have made the rune stone is hard to believe.
    3. Weather condition looked for me, like the famous Danish rune stone “Jelling stone” there are more than 1000 years old.
    4. The argument that there don’t have been Vikings in that area, cut be true or false he doesn’t know either.
    5. No Old Norse approach to translate fits this stone, false. Why does the think that a Swede have done it?
    6. I think that new investigating is needed.


    POTEAU stone arguments:

    1 I don’t think that the weather argue is holding.
    2 If it is Elder Futhark, I think a good argument for Vikings/Norse.
    3 In Scandinavia, from the late 8th century, the script was simplified to the Younger Futhark, while the Anglo-Saxons and Frisians extended the Futhark which eventually became the Anglo-Saxon futhorc. Unlike the Anglo-Saxon and Younger Futharks, which remained in use during the Early and High Middle Ages, respectively, knowledge of how to read the Elder Futhark was forgotten until 1865, when it was deciphered by Norwegian scholar Sophus Bugge.
    4 No Scandinavian/German emigrants know how to write Futhark in the 18 or 19 century.

    Shawnee and Pawnee stone arguments:

    1 I don’t think that the weather argue is holding.
    2 If it is Elder Futhark, a good argument for Viking/Norse.
    3 NW Germany was Viking land and trade center Bremen, Hamburg etc. and many more (Hansestadt).
