According To Recently Discovered Artifacts From Ohio And West Virginia, The Roman Army Hit America In 71 AD

ROME, Jan. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- David Xavier Kenney, owner of the online jewelry company RomanOfficer.com and an independent researcher of ancient artifacts who has been pioneering the study of ancient miniature art, claims he has solid evidence of a Roman Army naval expedition to North America from 71 AD to 75 AD. According to Kenney, inscriptions on a Native American clay ball artifact from Ohio (which he named "The Thunderball"), suggest that the Roman Emperor Vespasian and the Roman General Cerialis planned the expedition in secret upon the defeat of Batavian rebel leader Civilis in 70 AD. Indications are that the expedition's primary objective was to gain the favor of the gods for Vespasian as a Roman world savior and peacemaker, as it appears that the expedition was connected to the opening of Vespasian's Temple of Peace in 75 AD.

Interestingly, Kenney also suggests that at least part of the expedition's purpose was to seek out archaeological sites of legendary metalsmiths of West Virginia that Civilis likely gained knowledge of from the prophetess Veleda. Kenney says that he can further validate his claim with various metal artifacts discovered by Michael Ellis, an artifact hunter and independent researcher from West Virginia. Kenney states:  "Mike has discovered hundreds of ancient American metal artifacts. It appears that many are from the Roman expedition, but there are others from an earlier period. Some even show animals that went extinct prior to the end of the last Ice Age, indicating that they are the earliest man-made metal objects known." 

Kenney believes that the Romans knew exactly what they were looking for in North America based on specific artifacts that he has studied from; the city of Rome itself, Italy, the Balkans, and now North America. His research shows that Roman archaeological societies who were associated with or part of the Roman Army and under the watchful eye of the Praetorian Guard produced superb archaeologists, even by modern standards, but who were also the chief propagandists for the cult of the emperor. Kenney is convinced that once his evidence of an official expedition to North America in 71 AD is further validated, that it will have immense historical implications.
