Have you heard of the Mn Rune Stone? Nor have I, but check out this video
wcco.com...

I sure wish they could translate it or even partial. Couldn't a good cryptologist or crpyto program pull some variables?

Partial translation:
(We are) 8 Goths and 22 Norwegians on (an) exploration-journey from Vinland over the West. We had camp by 2 skerries, one days-journey north from this stone. We were (out) and fished one day. After we come home (we) found 10 (of our) men red with blood and dead. AV(e) M(aria) Save us from evil. (We) have 10 of our party by the sea to look after our ship(s?) 14 days-journey from this island. Year 1362.

Many people have debated this but the following seems to make it very likely;
In 1354 King Magnus Erikson of Sweden and Norway issued a letter of protection (or passport) to Paul Knutson for a voyage to the Norwegian dependency of Greenland. The Western Settlement of Greenland had been found abandoned (but for some cattle) a few years earlier and it was believed the population had rejected the Church (and its ownership of the local farms, which had been gradually acquired in payment of various fees), reverted to paganism and gone to what is now known as North America.

In 1887 historian Gustav Storm mentioned the journey, suggesting it returned in 1363 or 1364. This appears to be the first published work that documents a voyage to North America matching the date on the stone. It has since been confirmed by a 1577 letter from Gerard Mercator to John Dee, which excerpts an earlier work by Jacobus Cnoyen (now lost) describing a voyage beyond Greenland that returned with 8 men in 1364. Cnoyen also mentions that a priest accompanied the voyage and wrote an account of it in a book called the Inventio Fortunate which is cited in a number of medieval and Renaissance documents, although no copy remains. That Ivar Bardson had returned either in 1363 or early 1364 is documented from a Norwegian Diploma dated 25 June 1364 where 'Ivarus Barderij' is confirmed by Bishop Botolv in Stavanger to have delivered collected tithes.

The Inventio is cited on some 16th century maps as a source for their depiction of the Arctic. It is not known if the voyage went as far as Hudson Bay but some maps are claimed to have depicted the bay at least a century before its first known exploration and this reportedly influenced Columbus in planning his own voyage west across the Atlantic. So while a clever forger could have deduced the correct date to put on the Runestone from information available at the time of its discovery, an expedition does seem to have taken place as inscribed on the stone.

Kensington is near a portage between the Hudson Bay and Mississippi watersheds. A natural north-south navigation route extends from Hudson Bay up Nelson River through Lake Winnipeg, then up the Red River of the North through a canyon carved by the outflow from the glacial Lake Agassiz. It abruptly ends at the bottom of what may be an old riverbed (a location characterized by the ground rising due to isostatic rebound) west of Cormorant Lake. It has been speculated that explorers entering North America from the north and looking for a route south (perhaps aided by local native American knowledge of waterways) would have naturally been drawn into the Kensington area.

Interesting. Here is a good history of the stone:

This post belongs in the "Ancient & Lost Civilizations" forum rather than Secret Societies, IMHO.
