      >
      > Everyone loves a mystery and Yarmouth has one that may be over a thousand years old. This one has clues etched in stone, four hundred pounds of stone to be exact, and its secrets lay in the Yarmouth County Museum for all the world to see. And eyes from around the world will in fact me riveted on Yarmouth Counties, Fletcher runic stone as an international symposium gathers to attempt to unravel its secrets.
      >
      > The Yarmouth County Museum will host an all day symposium of international scholars on September fourth, and the public is invited to participate as these stone detectives examine clues, challenge theories and maybe even finger the stone carving ancient visitors that left us a millennium old message. Who were these people, when were they here, why did they come and what did they want to tell us? Or is it all a hoax?
      >
      > The exhibits at the Yarmouth County Museum speak to us. Stories are handed down in diaries, oral history or in photographs and paintings. We know who the historical figures of Yarmouth were, we know how they lived and how they died, that is all except one: The runic stone is silent.
      >
      > The international team organized by Nova Scotia authority and Yarmouthonian afficionado, Terry Deveau, have prepared the symposium. While the Fletcher Stone, discovered by Dr. Richard Fletcher in 1812 on his property on Yarmouth Harbour will be the focus of the symposium, Deveau's group will also discuss other Yarmouth runic mysteries, including the Bayview stone, Lent's Island Stones, and the Tusket cellars; these controversies will be considered in the greater context of early explorations in North America.
      >
      > The public is invited to join the international sleuths beginning at 8:30AM on September 4th at the Yarmouth County Museum located at 22 Collins St. Yarmouth. Speaker and program information can be found on the Museum's website at www.yarmouthcountymuseum.ednet.ns.ca ADMISSION IS FREE!
