It is not impossible, but have you heard of the legend's of the fomorian, a people from the sea whom raided ireland,.
When columbus reached the island he Renamed Hispaniola there were native ships as large as the nina, pinta and santa maria apparenly made of balsa but
sea going masted vessels so it is also possible given the ruin's around north america that there could have been ancient transatlantic trade and an
exchange of idea's, then of course nearly 500 years before the vikings discovered greenland an irish monk called Brendan may have reached america
Oddly though both the Irish monk and the later viking's were heading for land they seemed to already know was there as if from old tales and there
are many ancient sea farers maps which show land which could not have existed since the end of the last ice age such as "High Brazil" a land to the
west of Ireland which appears on several of these Portolon map's and is in the approximate place were there is a rise in the sea bed and was dry
during the last glacial maximum.
You of course may have heard of the Piri reis map which show's south america and Antarctica (Intriguingly it shows antarctica in more accurate detail
without the ice covering and with rivers and mountains which were only REDISCOVERED by the british antarctic survey of 1956.
There are however many possabillity's and As for Kenewik man they are now trying to say he was Asiatic and more like the Ainu whom are the Japanese
aboriginal people which were driven to the margins of japanese culture as it came into the Japanese islands from the Korean penninsular (Most Japanese
are ethnically related to the Korean's).
Genetic analysis however suggests that many north american people actually came from europe during the last ice age as hunter gatherers and the
Bearing Strait's was not the only place that migration entered north america, but of note during the Ice age as people came into america over the
Bearing strait land bridge from Asia they would have encountered the most fearsom species of bear that we know of, a species known as the flat faced
bear, larger than a polar bear and faster than a horse these pure predators would most likely have hunted the early migrant's for food and what if
they had red fur, they like other bears would have reared up on there hind leg's.
Still it is possible but more likely there was stone age trade, after all what level of wood skill did they have as there wooden structures and ships
would long ago have disappeared but only there stone tool's and later bronze age tools' remain but in ireland some exceptionaly well made wooden
find's have come to light such as a piece of wood which has key hole shaped cut out's and was found in an irish bog, dated at over 3000 years old this
puzzled the archaeologists but one person suggesed as it is also blade shaped it may have been the front of a cart or wheel barrow like contraption
which would be pushed through a field of wheat and strip the grain from the stalk as they would be bunched by the teeth into the circular section then
pull the grain off as the forward motion pulled the wheat down and let the grain fall behind into the hopper, but that was hypothetical, still a
bronze age combine harvester, later people used sickles and back breaking work which lasted until the industrial revolution so it may be that they
where very clever indeed.
Around europe among celtic ruin's some remnant's of wooden road's have been found, now in celtic europe wood was very plentiful so why not but is
does mean they were building roads before the roman's.
There culture was the victim of roman propeganda but we now know it was incredibly sophisticated and there were no real bars on how high woman in
there culture could ascend unlike the Romano greek culture, there sphere of influence spread form annatolia in the east to ireland in the west as they
would conquer a society or tribe only to place there warrior elite as its rulers but the locals could under there system prove themselves worthy and
ascend among the rank's, in many celtic villages they had a ring of wood, if a warrior was too fat to pass it over his shoulders and waist he would be
sent home in disgrace until he lost weight ( which would rule me out ), it is believed the celtic culture as a conglomeration of traditions but
originated in southern germany south of the rheine.
Now I actually do believe in the giant's as a very large people whom once lived widely around the globe as all cultures pass traditions of them but
did they go extinct or were they merely another branch of humanity and could be actually be there descendant's.
