The Linear Mounds and the Manitoba Burial Mounds may have been created during the Bronze Age. The people in those mounds may have harvested the food supply for the 3,400 men that passed Norway House each year. The expedition will try to determine if the mounds were related to the Bronze Age copper haulers. The Linear Mounds appear to be a buffalo trap and mass killing structure.
[NOTE: the Linear Mounds and the Manitoba mounds are an excellent example of suppression of knowledge by omission. How could both sets of mounds make it onto the National register of Parks and the knowledge of the mounfd still be suppressed from the schoolkids?
PRIMARY GOAL: The expedition will generate maximum publicity about the Big Event, the Copper Haulers of the Bronze Age and the Norse Christians. These three paradigms are not included in the school curriculum. The public will become aware that these paradigms are suppressed by the institutionalized omission of evidence not included in the 17th century, when WASPs created a biased history, which is still taught.
|WATERS AROUND CROSS LAKE|
The waters around Cross Lake all appear to be at the same elevation. But the terrain is not. There appear to be locations where the earth was modified to enable the waters to have the same evecation.
A change in elevation occurs at the draw where Norway House is located. Thia location may have seen where the boats were lifted from one water level to the higher level.
WINNIPEG WATER LEVEL
LAKE WINNIPEG LEVEL WATERSWinnipeg Water Level is maintained in a canyon lake that connects to the Norway House on the upper side of the dam. The 25.6 elevation between Lake Winnipeg and the Cross Lake water levels was within the capabilities of men using primitive hand tools to move earth. When compared to the 30 foot deep mines in rock around Lake Superior, this terrain modification would have been warm up practice.
Joseph Smith was sent in 1756, from York Factory, to explore the area. He ascended the Nelson River seeking Lake Winnipeg. He reached Little Playgreen Lake on September 21 that year.
In 1816 Lord Selkirk sent out a band of Norwegians, apparently ex-convicts, to build a road fromYork Factory to Lake Winnipeg and a series of supply posts. They built Norway House at Mossy Point (west side of outflow) in 1817 replacing the former Jack River post at that location.
Jack River, the connection between the Winnipeg Level water and the Cross Lake waters has been the key link from the Nelson River to Lake Winnipeg ever since Europeans invaded America.
