Excerpt from Did the Phoenicians Discover America?
The problem of the original discovery Of America is no new one. Ever since indisputable traces Of the presence of the early Scandinavian Rovers or Vikings were noted on the north-east coast Of the great western continent, speculation has been busy as to the character, habits, and race Of these primal colonists. One fact soon emerged that the Scandi navians were far from being the first to land on and colonise portions Of the vast territory. Traces were discovered of earlier visits that throw the date back upwards of 2500 years or even 3000 years to about the epoch Of the Trojan War while other theories cast it still further into the deep backward and abysm of time.
