El dios humeante

El Dios Humeante, o un Viaje al interior de la Tierra es el relato de un marinero noruego que navegó a través de una entrada al interior de la Tierra en el Polo Norte. Willis George Emerson recibe aviso urgente de Olaf Jansen al que conocía desde hacía dos años: "Era apenas las dos de la mañana cuando el sonido vigoroso de mi timbre me despertó de un sueño apacible. El intempestivo perturbador resultó ser un mensajero que llevaba una nota, garabateada y casi ilegible, de un viejo vikingo llamado Olaf Jansen. Después de mucho interpretar, descifré la escritura que decía simplemente: “Enfermedad de muerte.  ¡Ven!.” La llamada era imperativa, y no perdí ningún momento en hacer preparativos para cumplirla". El viejo marino escandinavo, Olaf Jansen, deposita en Emerson su confianza y su historia: "Finalmente puso en mis manos ciertos datos, dibujos y mapas toscos. “Éstos,” dijo como epílogo, “lo dejo en tus manos. Si puedo obtener t…

Danish teen makes rare Viking-era find with metal detector

COPENHAGEN, Denmark -- Danish museum officials say that an archaeological dig last year has revealed 365 items from the Viking era, including 60 rare coins. Danish National Museum spokesman Jens Christian Moesgaard says the coins have a distinctive cross motif attributed to Norse King Harald Bluetooth, who is believed to have brought Christianity to Norway and Denmark. Sixteen-year-old Michael Stokbro Larsen found the coins and other items with a metal detector in a field in northern Denmark. Stokbro Larsen, who often explores with his detector, said he is often laughed at because friends find him "a bit nerdy." Moesgaard said Thursday that it was the first time since 1939 that so many Viking-era coins have been found, calling them "another important piece in the puzzle" of history.

Leicester University announced that DNA tests had established “beyond reasonable doubt” that they had found the body of the last of the Plantagenets, the 15th-century king killed at the Battle of Bosworth Field.

"Forbidden Archaeology"

18 Giant Skeletons And Pyramids Found In Wisconsin Posted by Charleston Voice
Here's one for your "Forbidden Archaeology" file.Scientists are remaining stubbornly silent about a lost race of giants found in burial mounds near Lake Delavan, Wisconsin, in May 1912. The dig site at Lake Delavan was overseen by Beloit Collegeand it included more than 200 effigy mounds that proved to be classic examples of 8th century Woodland Culture. But the enormous size of the skeletons and elongated skulls found in May 1912 did not fit very neatly into anyone's concept of a textbook standard. They were enormous. These were not average human beings. Their heights ranged between 7.6ft and 10 feet and their skulls "presumably those of men, are much larger than the heads of any race which inhabit America to-day." They tend to have a double row of teeth, 6 fingers, 6 toes and like humans came in differant races. The teeth in the front of the jaw are regular molars. Heads usu…

The Vikings Sagas

Hundreds of years ago in faraway Iceland the Vikings began to write down dozens of stories called sagas - sweeping narratives based on real people and real events.

I do not own any rights to this but I do feel the need to share it with the people that likes history of Iceland, since this (and similar) is hard to find and never on tv.
