Analysing the Vinland Map: A Critical Review of a Critical Review

Analysing the Vinland Map: A Critical Review of a Critical Review

By Kenneth M. Towe, R.J.H Clark and K.A. Seaver

Archaeometry, Vol.50:5 (2008)

Abstract: In an attempt to validate the Vinland Map as a genuine 15th century work, Garman Harbottle (2008) claims to review critically, and thereby discredit, the archaeometric research undertaken on the Map’s ink by Walter McCrone (1974-1999) and Brown and Clark (2002). In this paper we outline and discuss the numerous arguments that are presented by Harbottle, all of which we find to be misleading or at best highly questionable.
