re: Bat Creek Stone
>this gives a bit more information about the articles found with this stone in the grave......lady jA Harvard Professor, Dr. Barry Fell, in his book of 1976 titled "America B.C." has uncovered evidence that Celts from Spain and Semitic people from Carthage, Libya, and Egypt were visitors to North America as far back as 800 B.C. Also the book, "In Plain Sight" by author Gloria Farley will substantiate this information. So to the people that hold the erroneous belief that Columbus "discovered America", there is plenty of evidence to debunk this hoax. As far as the Cherokee are concerned, we have to look no farther than their own backyard in Loudon County, Tennessee on Bat Creek. Not only has the Bat Creek Stone been documented in the fore mentioned books, but also has been extensively documented in a video production by Dr. Arnold Murray of Shepherds Chapel Productions. In 1889, William Emmert of the Smithsonian Institution excavated a small, unrifled mound at Bat Creek. With the stone were found nine skeletons, two copper bracelets and wooden ear spools. Dr. Murray places the date on this site as between 45 B.C. and 100 A.D. On the stone was found an ancient Hebrew inscription that was translated, as "The Lion of Judah-May the voice of God, be the poker that gathers these firebrands". Dr. Murray concluded that a Hebrew priest must have written the inscription. The copper bracelets were analyzed to be brass that was of an alloy that dated to around 45 B.C. from the Asia Minor region.
