February’s Lodge of Instruction will be a presentation by David S. Brodie, on the Exploration of America before Columbus. Numerous artifacts and sites around New England offer evidence of exploration of North America before xColumbus. Specifically, the artifacts seem to confirm the legend of a group of Scottish explorers, with ties to the outlawed Knights Templar, island-hopping their way across the North Atlantic in the late 1300s. Who were they, and why did they come? Well, that’s where the fun begins.
