At the time of this migration (due to the devastation of Britain caused by a comet strike that had its final impact in South America
, recently proven to have taken place at the right time, and its trajectory would have put it over Britain prior to the final impact in South America), when ship builders were approached to build the fleet, they said animal skin boats were not suitable for such a journey, and that the journey needed wooden ships. As they knew where to go(!), they offered to accompany the fleet to guide them.
Might go some way towards explaining why this inscription is inside the Washington
"Fy iaith, fy ngwlad, fy nghenedl Cymru — Cymru am byth" (My language, my land, my nation of Wales — Wales for ever).
Oh and apparently, Lewis & Clark did
find descendant tribes from that early migration.
It would certainly explain some of the untypical 'Celtic type' historic sites in the East of the USA I suppose.
There's some mind boggling stuff only recently been translated from the Coelbren alphabet (the old Bard's alphabet). Historians are very keen to pretend that the Coelbren alphabet was only created in 1791, by Edward Williams, but reading them in Welsh from inscriptions up to 2,000 BC or more, are perfectly legible.
I think knowledge of America was very widespread, a very long time ago.
