The year is 1853. Seth Eastman, a reknown illustrator of Native American life, poses atop Dighton Rock in Massachusetts. The strange writings adorning the rock have been the subject of speculation since the late 1600s, when it was discovered. The most likely explanation is that the markings were inscribed by Portuguese sailors. Dighton Rock’s markings include the Portuguese Coat of Arms, three crosses, the name of the ship’s captain – Miguel Corte Real, and the date 1511. Mystery solved?
