The Westford Knight and Henry Sinclair
The Westford Knight is a
controversial stone feature in Massachusetts. Some believe it is an effigy
of a 14th century knight, evidence carved into stone of an early European
visit to the New World by Henry Sinclair, the Earl of Orkney and Lord of
Roslin. In 1954, an archaeologist encountered the mysterious stone carving,
long known to locals and ascribed a variety of origin stories, and proposed
it to be a remnant of the Sinclair expedition.

The Mystery Hill Story
America's Stonehenge sits atop Mystery Hill in
North Salem, New Hampshire. It is an acre of stone structures surrounded by
a 12-acre calendar. Alignments and carbon dating indicate the site was built
4000 years ago. In this book the authors explore the historical and
prehistoric clues left behind at the archaeology site once described as a
'mystery wrapped in an enigma'.
