DNA Proves European In America
Seven Centuries Before Columbus
As if other evidence I've offered in my book "Iron Age America," in my web site "America's Mysterious Furnaces" and this blog isn't enough to convince skeptics, I'm now adding laboratory proof of the presence of Europeans in pre-Columbian America.
In the book, I begin with Shawnee Indians telling a representative of the governor of Colonial Virgina that they could not give Virginians permission to settle in Kentucky because the region was "haunted by the ghosts of the Az Gens, a people "from the Eastern Sea (Atlantic Ocean).
I could have also mentioned that mitrochonial DNA and C14 dating confirmed a date of about 710 A.D. for the remains of a man found in one of the many cave shelters in the Bluegrass State. Kentucky rock shelters have long been studied by folks who are interested in evidence of the presence of Europeans in pre-Columbian North America. More information about this discovery can be found in the web site "Prehistoric West Virginia." Some of my fellow members of the Midwestern Epigraphic Society have made a number of visits to these caves to examine inscriptions on cave walls they believe were written in Ogam, ancient Old World Irish alphabet.
So here is proof of the Shawnee Indians telling the truth about the Az Gens, who certianly qualify as the probable Iron Age people who once lived in Ohio and who left behind evidence of their presence at the pit iron furnace sites and who also could have once resided at Spruce Hill in prehistoric Ross County.
