The Farfarers: Before The Norse
by Farley Mowat
ISBN-10: 1883642566

A note of caution around the works of this author…

It is my understanding that Mr. Mowat has been challenged on his statements in his books — to which he has replied something to the effect that he doesn’t let facts stand in the way of truth.
Uhhhhh …. come again???

I understand that statement and I understand its fallacies.
If you read this as his thoughts based on what he’s seen, and providing these locations, artifacts, and references exist, then what he is presenting is theory — and I did find it very thought provoking.

So … yeah … from the time that I originally made this … I’m not entirely sure this links to the book I was trying to refer to.
