The Westford Knight and Henry Sinclair
The Westford Knight is a controversial stone feature in Massachusetts. Some
believe it is an effigy of a 14th century knight, evidence carved into stone
of an early European visit to the New World by Henry Sinclair, the Earl of
Orkney and Lord of Roslin.
In 1954, an
archaeologist encountered the mysterious stone carving, long known to locals
and ascribed a variety of origin stories, and proposed it to be a remnant of
the Sinclair expedition.
