The Celts were also in America as my recent visit to Ontario, Quebec, Nova 
Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Connecticut established.  I found 
burial grounds, dolmens and ogham inscriptions everywhere.  History is 
under our feet.
It is in the faces of the people we meet.  It is in the language we 
speak.  The written word
is suspect because Church and State alike have fed us with misinformation 
for thousands
of years.

The Celts were great sailors.  The Vikings learned their sea-faring skills 
from the
Celts whose arrival on the American Continent pre-dated the Vikings.

I shall leave it to the Clan Douglas to write to the Washington  Post.  It 
would have
more authority coming from 'the horse's mouth'

Kind regards,
