The Kensington Runestone: True or False?
Discovered near Kensington, Minnesota, by Olof Ohman in 1898, the Kensington Runestone, a 200lb slab of grey rock covered on one side of runes, has been the subject of scholarly debate for over a century. If real, the Kensington Runestone would change history and suggest Scandinavian explorers reached the middle of North America earlier then scientists think---as early as the 14th century. This lecture is presented by Dr. Henrik Williams on 9/23/2010 in the Rose Room of the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History.
