My Review for History Channel's Holy Grain in America

My ratings: 4/5 stars

The first run of this show, I had a very hard time paying attention. After the first half hour I was distracted by just about everything else: the internet, my mobile device, daydreams, etc. But worry not, on the second run of the show the same night, I gave it my undivided attention. Why did I take 1 star away? Well, it was the usual conclusion for these TV documentaries: no conclusion. But I gave it 4 stars because I learned a lot about the Kensington Runestone which I knew nothing a bout. Now I am very intrigued. And the fact that the show was able to do that deserves at least 3 stars. I liked the twists and turns the show took. First you think: Oh, this is a hoax. This guy made this thing for sure! And then using scientific and circumstantial evidence you see that it is more likely not the case. But really an old runestone that was left around the 1300s!

I am all for the theory that the Scandinavians were here before Columbus. I've always thought that theory that Christopher Columbus was the the true discoverer of America, which we were spoon-fed in elementary through high school school, was bunk.

If you missed it, I would definitely recommend watching it. I will post it here when it becomes available online!

  1. Thanks so much for mentioning this. I've never seen it and am excited to see it. I'm Scandinavian and my father (from Norway) always taught us as children that the Northern people had been here long before Columbus. The stories of the lands from Newfoundland down were passed down through generations among the people. They didn't think it was extraordinary, just part of their adventures.

  2. You're welcome. I checked History Channel's site and it seems like it won't be on in the coming fortnight

    But I would keep checking. It's a new special so they should be rerunning it quite a bit.
