Re: America's Stonehenge


     I have some additional information about "Mystery Hill" In Salem, New 
Hampshire or "America's Stonehenge", about which a television program called 
"History's Mysteries" will be shown on the History Channel television channel 
on July 3.  
     Barry Fell, the Harvard-educated epigrapher and excavator of sunken 
Spanish galleons, wrote an excellent book on the Celtic (Irish) exploration 
of America.  This book is called America B.C. It was published by 
Quadrangle/New York Times Book Co., NY, NY in 1976.  Barry Fell is deceased.  
The book is out of print and available in libraries.  I have read this book.  
Mr. Fell states that Mystery Hill was settled from 800 BC - 600 BC by people 
from Ireland who worshipped a sun god named "Bel."
     Charles Michael Boland wrote in his book They All Discovered America, 
published by Doubleday, NY, NY in 1961 that Mystery Hill was settled by Irish 
monks who were fleeing the Vikings who were raiding Ireland.  Mr. Boland said 
the Irish monks settled Mystery Hill in the Tenth Century A.D.  This book is 
out of print and available in libraries.  Mr. Boland is deceased.  I own this 
book.  I think it is the best book I ever read about everyone who discovered 
    Someone asked about James Whittal.  He died in Rowley, Massachusetts in 
November 1998.  I own a book that has his picture and a short biography of 
him in it.  This book tells all about the investigations carried out by Mr. 
Whittal and others of pre-Columbian (before Christopher Columbus came to 
America in 1492) settlements in New England.  This book is called New 
England's Ancient Mysteries by Robert Ellis Cahill.  It was published in 1993 
by the Old Salt Box Publishing House in Salem, Massachusetts.  As far as I 
know it is out of print, but it may be in libraries or you may be able to buy 
it from the publisher.  It goes into great detail about many places in New 
England that were settled by people from Europe before Christopher Columbus.
     Ever since I was a child, I have been interested in who discovered 
America.  I only learned about my Sinclair heritage in 1995 (Prince Henry 
Sinclair discovered North America in 1398 AD.) so now I know why I have 
always been interested in this subject.
