What is THAT?

Allen C. Guelzo, in the Great Course “Making History” wrote,

“History wants to use the kind of evidence that can be verified.”

He wrote the historians should ask two questions.

Q1 What is that?

Q2 Where did THAT come from.)?

Prof. Guelzo may be naive.  He does NOT describe Historian behavior.

My experience is that Historians teach what they were taught.  That may be one reason that the "first" historians could profoundly distort History.

I have two decades of trying, multiple times, to encourge historians to “Look at THAT.”  

I have many posts of evidence to show that nearly all Historians do NOT ask or answer Prof Guelzso’s first question.

Here is a single example of a “THAT,” which has not been questioned by most historians.

Why  do we have (6) Niorse names of Gods on our calendars and only one name of a Roman God?

Calendar  Norse                 Meaning
 Day          God    
 Sun          Sol (Sól, Sunna)   Goddess,
                                                of the sun
Mon            Mani                    Moon
Tues            Tyr (Týr …Teu)  war, justice in
Wednes    Othinn, Votan, …   Goddess  Æsir
                 Woden, Wodin     wisdom, war,
                                                magic, poetry,
                                                 and death
Thurs         Thor (þórr...)         protection,
Fri             Fria, Frige,              'to love'

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday (Six days) are named for Norse Gods.

Saturday is named for a Romn God, Saturn.

What (why) is THAT?

"THAT" is somehow the calendar on every wall honors the names of six Norse Gods.

Do you know any Historian, who has asked the FIRST Question?


Every day Historians look at, and speak about, "evidence that can be verified."




Lenape Lands
I began my quest for the LENAPE History by a process that I now call “serendipity.”  “Making pleasant and unexpected discoveries entirely by chance.” 
At Oklahoma State University about 1971 I was given an assignment to help State Extension Agents in ten prairie states deal with “Feedlot Waste Management.” 
As I traveled into each state I would buy and read a book about the state.   When I visited in Nebraska, I had little spare time throughout most of the visit.  As my wife and I departed the University of Nebraska bookstore, I saw a book entitled
Ancient Pioneers, Early Early Connections.  I thought the book was about the pioneer couple, who were featured as the mascots of the Nebrasa sport teams.

A string of decisions led to my being in the University of Nebraska bookstore.  But those decisions were, each one, “entirely by chance.”  They had no relation to the “Ancient Pioneers” book, which I bought.
Astri A. Stromsted wrote a book about ancient Norse pioneers.
I was reading the book as my wife drove.
I came across another discovery.  Four thousand Norse oeople vanished from Greenland.  No one knew where they went. 
I remember exclaiming. “I am 52 years old.   I read history books all my life.  Why is it that I never heard of the 4.000 people, who vanished from Greenland?”
At home I told my family about the 4,000 people, who  varnished.  I told them that, when I retire, I would find out where the 4000 people went.  4,000 people cannot vanish with out leaving a record.”

But I still had thirteen years to make a living.  I put the book references into my Commodore 64 computer.  I added references to the VIKING and the RED MAN.
Then I forgot the Ancient Pioneers.
Then I, a man who should have been settled  for the rest og hid life, moved at least eight  times into four states. I changed computer systems three times.
Afer a year into retirement, I told my daughter, “I do not know what to do with myself.”  She said, “Dad, remember that book you were going to write?”

I searched my computer’s memory for “Ancient Pioneers”.
The Ancient Pioneers data was an unexpected find.

Today I am reflecting on two decades of research about places I call LENAPE LANDS.
Recently I summarized what I think are facts about the LENAPE LANDS.  Here are those facts:
We learned a colonial history, which is not accurate.
We should teach a more accurate paradigm.
1. There was a Pan-North Atlantic Culture, which spoke Old Norse, 4,500  ya.
2. In the 11 to the 15th centuries, the Lenape composed a history, which still exists.
3. The Catholic religion came to North America during the 12th century.
4. The Catholics in America called themselves Lenape, which means “Abide with the pure.”
5.  The Lenape History tells about a migration from Greenland to New Jersey, via the Dakotas
6. When the English invaded, most people in eastern North America spoke Old Norse.
7. Colonial leaders knew the LENAPE spoke Old Norse and had archaic Christian traditions.
8. The Protestants, who came to America, suppressed Lenape by omitting them from the printing presses.
I am writing this history to encourage educators to challenge their students to verify the fact that when the English invaded, most Americans were Catholics, who spoke Old Norse.  If educators do nothing, early history in America will remain suppressed.
This will be a story about my research about the Lenape history.  The LENAPE HISTORY appears to have been compiled about the time of the Little Ice Age.  But the LENAPE HISTORIANS, who compiled the LENAPE History,  appear to have started the LENAPE History about “the lands we left behind,” Which is Greenland.
