And Leeuwarden wasn't 'moved', it has been on the east coast of the Middle Sea for many ages.
Now this was my point when I started about Leeuwarden:
We are supposed to believe that several generations of "Ocke"'s family copied the OLB in Leeuwarden. Last copy: 1256 AD. Those who copied it may have done so while looking out over the Middel Sea. Don't you think it is strange that they 'may' have talked about the Mediterranean, called it 'Middel Sea' instead, and all the time never gave the Middel Sea in front of their noses a second thought??
This is the seal of Leeuwarden, btw:
Hi Abe. Not so strange to me at least. As I said, I prefer Wilkens theory to any other I have come across. One of the things he mentions and I'm sure you have read about too is this business of calling area's and so on by familiar names back home. However as with Britain and Holland there's very little left on the ground to back it up using finds and so on. This imo in no small part down to the weather and the Druids, (perhaps).
When you compare Odysseus traveling in the Atlantic , North sea then try to fit the story into the Mediterranean it looks a mess. I still think overall I give Wilkens over the OLB but both stories have been as is indicated, tampered with in the past.
There are two ways of doing things from our point of view. Carry on digging around or like others wait for confirmation from the Professionals. I'd rather not wait since it could be long after I'm gone that they find out.
