Viking Tower in Newport, Rhode Island

New update to the Boston-area Viking Monument page. This one just happens to be an old stone tower. Back in the day folks thought Vikings erected it. Vikings definitely erected a very many things, especially when they got a little too excited with the pillaging and there happened to be some fine ladies around, but this, alas, was not among them. But still, it’s cool, or at least somewhat interesting, I think. Check out the placard that discusses its Norse history below. It’s a close up of the relevant text from the site itself; very authentic.
