Newport tower carbon dating

The tower has received attention due to speculation that it is actually several centuries older and would thus represent evidence of pre-Columbian trans-oceanic contact. Carbon dating shows this belief to be incorrect. The Newport Tower is located in Touro Park at the top of Mill Street, surrounded by a historical residential neighborhood on the hill above the waterfront tourist district. Eighteenth-century paintings show that the hill itself once furnished a view of the harbor and would have been visible to passing mariners in Narragansett Bay, but recent tree growth now obscures the view.

Newport Tower as it appears in an 18th century painting. The Mysterious Tower at Newport. In the center of one of the most popular and ritzy seashore resorts on the eastern shore of the United States stands a small tower. At only 28 feet in height and about 24 feet across, most visitors to Newport, Rhode Island don't give it much notice. It stands quietly in a little park behind a protective fence, a vertical cylinder of rough stone supported by eight arches sitting upon eight columns.

Physical evidence and historical evidence gradually come to light and interpretations of the evidence are constantly challenged and new theories develop concerning the origins of the Newport Tower. Some claim the tower was once a windmill, a church, a watchtower or a personal garden folly. Depending of the theory, the builders were Nordic Vikings, Dutch or English settlers, 15thcentury Chinese sailors stranded in America or another group of people.
