WEEK 13, NO ONE TURNED BACK. AD1351

THE LENAPE HISTORY OF AMERICA,
AD 1351
King Magnus appointed Paul Knutson to captain a rescue mission, which 
would row beyond Greenland to recover the Christians that abandoned Greenland.  Magnus gave Knudson full authority to choose his crews.

No one turned back
from here to there.
No DESERTER
 went off yonder

What do the curved lines on the top of the circle represent?

What do the two mounds and lines from each mound to the circle represent?

This pictograph may identify the episode where Paul Knudson and his rescue crews found the LENAPE People and offered to rescue them.  

If so, what does the stanza say about the  LANAPE answer?

         1352
          
Most, but not all, 
survived a boat wreck
on the rocks.

What does the triangle with a line near the top represent?

What does the circle with curved lines below the line represent?

Do we have any evidence of the “wreck on the rocks?”

IF we DO have the evidence of the boat wreck in about AD 1352, why are school kids taught that Columbus, who sailed the ocean blue in 1492—a century and a half later—was the first person from the east side of the Atlantic to discover America?
