Abstract:

In 1898, a Minnesota farmer unearthed a 200-pound carved stone covered with runes while chopping down a tree. Dubbed the Kensington Rune Stone, supporters claimed that it proved that by the 14th century, Scandinavian explorers had reached not just Newfoundland (as widely accepted) but also the middle of North America. Widely suspected to be a hoax, the author takes up the contrary position--defending the authenticity of the rune stone.
