      As a sub for school district here, the -20 w/-35 degree wind chill
      closed schools up to the Upper Michigan border. Thus looked at more
      details of this web site.

      Thanks to designer and main host of this site (MinnesotaStan) for the
      Home Page maps showing two-way PreColumbian movement both sides of
      the N. American continent.

      Also on the Home Page, click "Links" to note four sub-categories set
      up for our use:

      Ancient Traders in Metals
      Evidence of Ancient Voyages
      Mound Builders Sites
      Vikings

      Not sure yet how subdivisions are created, but more could be added in
      the future. A Tennessee link is one possibility once it is revealed
      where current investigations in are, what area of the Highland Rim,
      and which Mississippi River tributary(ies) run along or near the
      sites.

      In lieu of the previous American Antiquities article I sent to this
      site about 5000+ years ago pre-historic copper mining deeplu within
      Tennessee and Kentucky caves, that article could be placed in the
      Ancient Traders in Metals category.

      Marquette, Michigan historian, author on ancient copper culture,
      Fred Rydholm this morning said he had never heard of copper mining in
      that part of the country at such an early date. Will likely contact
      AAAPF member/researcher Lee Pennington of Tennessee to consider
      cooperative research and writing. Could ancient copper miners and
      traders of Upper Michigan and Tennessee-Kentucky be among a trade
      network of the same peoples? Ancient Great Lakes-Mississippi River/
      tributaries to and from each of the mining regions listed above make
      this a real possibility. Great potential for an earthshaking book.

      More later about some of your fine Profiles and links...
