Incredible Roseau Stone Reveals 200,000-Year-Old Writing
 – The incredible Roseau Stone discovered in Minnesota, US could easily re-write our history.


The stone does not only reveal that several ancient civilizations from across the sea visited North America in prehistoric times, but also that our ancestors were familiar with writing 200,000 years ago!


The story of this incredible stone is shrouded in mystery.


Putting together the pieces is almost like solving a detective story.


Now, let us try and unravel the mystery and learn more about this fascinating object.


The small stone, not more than perhaps two inches was discovered in 1927 in Roseau, Minnesota by Mr. Jake Nelson. While digging in his garden, he accidentally came across several stone hammers, arrowheads, ceramic shards, animal bones and this precious stone. One of the reasons he was able to uncover so many artifacts was because his home was on the site of an ancient Indian settlement.


The stone was given to John Jager, a famous American anthropologist and expert on ancient texts. Jager was a remarkable scientist. He was a genius interested in world-wide anthropology and epigraphy. He was also one of the first pioneers to put forth the idea of cultural diffusion and global travel, to North America, by the ancient mariners.


When Jager compared the engravings on the Roseau stone with other ancient inscription samples collected from around the world, he made a stunning discovery. “This inscription was made by ancient Greek and Egyptian civilizations. There are even Sumerian signs. Sumer is considered to be the first civilization on Earth and it is older than the Cathay Hüyük (Katal-huyuk) in Anatolia (Turkey),” he wrote in his diary.


Roseau famous stone, found in America. once decrypted. As it turned out, even before the Sumerians Russian words were written in the same way as now. In the tape-rim stone hidden words, and above shows the face of the ancient goddess of Yara: a pair of dark eyes, beads and canine, sticking out of the closed mouth. From above it is clear that the stone is oval, very reminiscent of a lion’s face from the front, which is most characteristic of the zoomorphic face Yar. On the circumference is an intricate decorative pattern — a belt. His signs are clearly visible, but the style of writing very similar ligature — writing style, which is usually written section titles (chapters) manuscripts.

Jager examined the stone for two years. In his notes he wrote that the runes on the Roseau Stone were sometimes in two rows, one on top of each other. Some of them were small while others were larger.


After some time, Jager identified the runes not as Scandinavian as some would believe, but as medieval, southern European and therefore with a root origin from the Balkans and Slavic regions.


The runes Jager identified on the Roseau Stone are ancestors to scripts used later in Russia.This was without doubt a sensational discovery.

It would mean that people of ancient Russia visited North America 200 000 years ago! Furthermore it would also imply that an ancient Russian civilization develop writing long before Sumerians.

Jager’s discovery was astonishing and dangerous to the scientific establishment.

What happened next is a disaster.


Jager created the “Ribbon”, you see below using the old photographic methods of the time. In those days people did not have the same camera equipment and computer software we have today. He did what he could with the tools he possessed.

After he took the photographs, he gave the Roseau stone to Anthropology Professor Jenks and Geology Professor Stauffer at the University of Minnesota. These scientists destroyed the artifact by “cleaning it” in an acid bath, which reportedly ate away most of the evidence on the pebble.


The artifact was considered a threat to the conventional history of North America. A pre-Columbian artifact must not exist!


Jager was absolutely devastated and furious when he learned about what happened to his precious stone.


Fortunately, photos taken by Jager survived in a library file that was located a few years ago. After his death, most all other private works of John Jager (outside of his public architect career) such as his complete notes, photos, and conclusions about the Stone, were burned when his widow died and could not protect them anymore.

Now comes yet another intriguing part of this story. Was the Roseau stone really destroyed? Was Jager deliberately told that the artifact was ruined in order to stop him from investigating it further?


Investigation reveals that the Roseau stone was in possession of a certain Mike Holm who lived a little longer than Jager. After Holm’s death the stone was stored with his other belongings at the State Historical Society in St. Paul, Minnesota. Then the Roseau stone vanished and was missing from 1952 to 2011, when it was found again.
