Some researchers have theorized that possibly the Rock Lake Wisconsin area became a winter base camp below the heavy snow line for the foreign miners who call their site TYRANENA 1 perhaps based from the native American languages or of their own creation. From TYRANENA 1 the traders travel down the Rock River to the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico and to distribute the copper cargo and some may possibly sail across the Atlantic back to North Africa and Europe with their rough copper ingots. The TYRANENIANS' build rock pyramidal structures and tombs for their dead on the banks of a small lake in a valley where a river runs through.
From elsewhere they got many other materials, perhaps the most important being tin and silver from Spain, which together with copper (from Cyprus) was used to make bronze. Strabo states that there was a highly lucrative Phoenician trade with Britain for tin. Trade routes from Asia converged on the Phoenician coast as well, enabling the Phoenicians to govern trade between Mesopotamia on the one side, and Egypt and Arabia on the other.
There are claims that Phoenician coins can be found as far inland of the United States of America as Nebraska and Oklahoma. These claims have not been published in any scientific journals, and there is no widespread acceptance of the validity of this work in the scientific community.
Further more additional claims had been made in 1976 that a site in New Hampshire, called Mystery Hill, was also grounds for Phoenician and Celtic coin finds and is still the site for a 2700 years old sacrificial altar.  There is a scientific consensus about the stone slab being used as a butcher block or altar but no proof of it being Punic or Phoenician.
originally posted by PrplHrt, Tyranena has nothing to do with Tyre.Wisconsin was settled by a variety of Germanic types, which is the source of the name.
The legend of Tyranena (pronounced Tie·rah·nee·nah) began long ago, in a time before history was written. Legend tells of a foreign tribe that built a series of stone structures and effigy mounds on the edge of a lake they called Tyranena.
Today, these structures lie preserved deep under the waters of Rock Lake. No one knows for sure who built them, the purposes they served, how and why they are now submerged, or even the meaning of the word Tyranena.

originally posted by TheWalkingFox What is it with people on this site? Is the idea that Native people are able to stack rocks so offensive to the collective psyche of ATS that every mysterious edifice in North America had to have been created by a mysterious and long-vanished group of white people?
Strangely, both Aztalan's and Cahokia's inhabitants cleared out around 1200 AD. Some people still speculate that the Mississippians migrated south to become the Aztec population of Mexico. Readers Digest Mysteries of the Americas says, "The Aztec were latecomers to the Valley of Mexico, settling there in the 12th or 13th century AD, following a long and arduous migration from the north." Their new home was named Mexico-Tenochtitlan, "place of the Mexica and Tenochca," after the two populations who made the journey. Could the two factions have been the Aztalaners and Cahokians? Few anthropologists think so, but according to Schuler, some tribal members he's talked to believe it's true.
