Ancient Iron Bronze Trade Ice Age Walrus Tusk Ivory Hunters Valutas Voyages North Atlantic Ocean Albans Vikings England Greenland Labrador National Museum Canada Deliberate Ignorance Censorship Longhouses Boat Shelters Ungava Bay Shetland Island Tradition

Little known is that just as elephant ivory was a valuable commodity in ancient times, so too was the ivory from walrus tusks,  huge pods of that creature according to ancient annuls having populated the North Atlantic from the North Sea to Iceland and Greenland to Labrador across the North Atlantic.  In Farley Mowat’s great book The Farfarers, he documents that ancient Albans from north England and the Shetland islands voyaged and hunted all the way across the Atlantic to Canada over two thousand years before Christopher Colombus  “discovered the New World.”

The seafaring Albans learned that the civilizations to their south happily traded bronze for the ivory of walrus tusks harvested in the North Atlantic circa 1000 b.c., so trading emporiums in southern England sprung up prompting the gruesome wholesale slaughter of the walrus population in the centuries thereafter, that ivory by weight of the same market value as bronze, very valuable, and so they ventured progressively westward pursuing the huge swimming creature.

The inch-thick walrus skins which were used for shields during the bronze and iron ages because of their strength were also applied to the skeletons of wooden ship hull frames, why today navy guys call the the sheet metal of the hulls of their huge ships “the skins” of the vessels.  Undoubtedly those ancient vessels were also used for the roofs of homestead buildings, that building tradition still practiced in the Shetland islands off the north coast of England today.

Across the Atlantic along the coasts of Ungava Bay, just east of Hudson Bay, are the ruins of great stone longhouses with but with no sign of the building material of the roofs.  The longhouse ruins are up to 80 feet long and shaped like a boat, the roofs certainly having sailed away when those sites were abandoned, no doubt when the walrus population had been decimated by perhaps 500 a.d., those sites having been used for many centuries leading up to that time.

The National Museum of Canada refuses to analyze the implications of these longhouses built by seafarers from Europe during the iron age, because such transoceanic navigation thousands of years ago is deemed anathema by the darwinian establishment, but when you realize how they navigated according to the wobble rate of the earth’s axis explained here http://genesisveracityfoundation.com/earth-measure-geometry, it all comes into focus, so wake up National Museum of Canada!
