Whilst we are in the negotiating stage, it would be somewhat premature to
likelihood of Sean Connery's involvement.
Leave the disclaimers to Tim. His book will give the lie to people like
Brigitta Wallace and others. There is already a mountain of evidence about
discoveries in America. No scholar worthy of the name believes that
Columbus was first.
To be fair, Columbus, who never set foot on the Continent of North America,
to have done so. He went to his grave still believing that he had reached
the Indies which
is why we call a place the "West Indies" which has nothing to with the
Indies and why call
people "Indians" who are not Indians.
Similarily, Henry Sinclair never claimed to have discovered America because
he was aware
that his Viking forebears had been making the voyage for centuries and,
before that, the
Phoenicians, the Romans, the Celts, the Basques etc.
There was nothing extraordinary about Henry Sinclair's voyage. The only
thing is the prevailing ignorance which most Americans have about their own
and about the diverse people who have inhabited it for, at least, 25,000 years.
There are none so blind as those who will not see the evidence beneath
