This power came forth out of the Atlantic Ocean, for in those days the Atlantic was navigable, and there was an island situated in front of the straits which are by you called the Pillars of Heracles.
The island was larger than Libya and Asia put together, and was the way to other islands, and from these you might pass to the whole of the opposite continent which surrounded the true ocean, for this sea which is within the Straits of Heracles is only a harbor, having a narrow entrance, but the other is a real sea, and the land surrounding it on every side may be most truly called a boundless continent.

2/ First we learned that the Mayaimi Indians of Florida were once related to the Mayan culture in Middle America by way of nautical travel.
3/ Second, this nautical travel of the Mayaimi extended into the Mississippian and Ohio Valleys - through which the Algonquin and Iroquoian tribes of North America, and even the aquatic oriented Creek tribe of the southeastern seaboard were apparently capable of crude but effective oceanic voyages across the North Atlantic.
4/ And thirdly, these voyages can be verified by a prehistoric alphanumerical format of communication known as Ogam - which can be found along the shores on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.
5/ Therefore, the greater Miami natives of North America could be related to both the Mayan culture of Middle America and the ancient inhabitants of Brittany by way of tribal migrations in sea-going sailboats.
