Narragansett Bay Runestone Stolen
Not too far from the stone anchors I recently posted(see "Stone Anchors?" thread), this rock was located:
Based on a tip from a shellfisherman, a collegue and I located this inscription in April, 1985. I took the first published photos and wrote a short article for the Journal of the New England Antiquities Research Association(NEARA). Below are poor copies of those 1985 photos, with the characters filled with barnacles, followed by a rendition of the inscription.
