Re: Narragansett Bay Runestone Vanishes

No, sorry, I don't believe in censorship. [...] Who is going to make such a determination to publish or not at the publishing house? Editing is not censoring. It's therefore the position is called "Editor" and not "Censor". The question is not necessarily "to publish or not to publish". There are d...

Re: Narragansett Bay Runestone Vanishes

One must hone discrimination of intellect to a fine degree to see through as baseless so many claims made in the marketplace of popular opinion. Many people are unable to do so. Isn't that where responsibility kicks in? Publishers and program directors should be able to do so or to have it done at ...

Re: Narragansett Bay Runestone Vanishes

I believe it was the height of irresponsibility to disclose the exact location of this feature. I would even take it one step further up the line: The height of irresponsibility begins with publishing books and documentaries like "The Holy Grail in America". Let alone the shaky grounds pseudoscient...

Re: Narragansett Bay Runestone Vanishes

... glacial rebound did cause the land to rise. [...] The shoreline was further out the further back in time. That's what I was after with my question. A situation comparable with the coastlines of Scandinavia where the land-rise displaced the rock-carvings of Bohuslän, originally carved on bedrock...

Re: Narragansett Bay Runestone Vanishes

Thanks for the clarification about the place! But, sea level has risen considerably in the last 700 or so years. Has it really? Or was it rather a change in shoreline and ground level due to geological processes? Because the hooked X is present, and because its' presence on the Kensington stone had ...

That is not an argument in either direction. Why would a non-hoaxer put it there? Runestones were made to be seen and read!

Re: A technical question

..the formatting and text make it a challenge to read..but worth it I think. I'm quite endurable with reading challenges after working with students at a university for some years...

Re: A technical question

Thanks for the link, Ernie! There are certainly secondary traditions connected to cupmarks, at least in Sweden and Denmark. Werner Brast mentions so called "pocket-cupmark-stones" (danish "lommeskålstene") which may have been used as portable "drug stores" for grinding powder (Source: Werner Brast (...

Re: A technical question

Thanks for the infos, George! Now we're getting a bit of the thread's main track but I'm too curious not to ask: There are cup marks much earlier than Gobleki Tepe in Europe , La Ferassie cave cups are dated approx 50, 000 BC whilst in India Auditorium cave and Daraki Chattan have cups dating from 2...

Re: A technical question

Hi E.P., no experience with 3D impressions here. In recent years we had some students at the documentation week who did/do their theses about the use of scanning devices in rock art documentation. Might be an interesting future perspective. Picture stones and runestones were certainly painted. As fo...

Re: A technical question

Hi E.P., Hypothetically, they're "pictoglyph"s, not a "petroglyph" or "petrograph", with glyphs about the sized of Linear A or Linear B glyphs. Generally the frottage method is applicable for almost all kinds of glyphs on stone surfaces, as long as the surface is not too irregular and crooked. Small...

Re: A technical question

What is the "grass" used for fixing the image? Hi E.P., it's just that: Grass. The grass' acids are fixing the carbon on the paper. Some prefer sour grass (Cyperaceae), others prefer sweet grass (Poaceae). Sometimes it's just a pragmatic question, you take what you can find in the vicinity of the r...
