The community has arrived and established itself about Glastonbury in England and is now reconstructing itself. It is plausible that this took place around 1000 AD during the height of the Viking Age. Plenty of sea traffic was available and this locale is a natural settlement prospect on the sea routes. It is the right place for a former Bronze Age Community abandoning a city near the copper fields in Lake superior to end up.
We now have the first mention of a horse no less.
The rest is material useful to such a community. We also get some material explaining the spiritual aspects of this community. But scant.
What we do pick up here is that the library was actively maintained in the Americas until as recently as 1000 AD. This is unexpected. similar material is purported to have existed during roman times coming out of Egypt, but this particular community and the Jewish community are the only two that appears to have sustained what are libraries around the roman world..

Those are my pledges, my hand and my token.
"If anyone poison an animal belonging to another, that person shall pay compensation to no less three times the value."
"I know there is a path of evil. It is the way of weakness and cowardice, which leads to self-destruction. I will fight all forms of wickedness and evil wherever I find them and I know I carmot go manfully through life without opposition and struggle".
"I promise to obey the code of manliness and to follow the paths of wisdom. My tongue will ever speak true and my hand do good. I know that just to do good is not sufficient, but I must attack evil. My duty is to oppose wicked men and their ways, and I will abide in peace with my brothers".
'The faith I hold shall not be something imprisoned within my thoughts, but something lived and expressed in deeds. I give thanks for the knowledge that I am a living soul, but I know fiill well the grave responsibility I bear towards my ftiture being. I will not be a disgrace to Earth when I pass to the greater realm beyond."
"When I become a father of children I. shall accept responsibility for their wrongdoing, even as credit is claimed for their goodness. I shall not seek to blame others for my own failures. I shall be ever mindful of the good things of life and grateful for them. I shall suffer adversity and affliction with fortitude, rising above them like a man and not cringing before them like a dog under the stick of his master. Doubts, fears, unnatural desires and unmanly urges may lurk along my path, like forest demons which waylay those who travel, but I shall overcome them."
"I recognise that my soul and body compete for the satisfaction of their separate desires. I know that each day the body dies a little, that every day it draws nearer to the dark shore. Therefore, I will follow the precepts of prudence and each and every day will be a step forward in the awakening of my soul. I shall not punish my trueself for the sake of satisfying a decaying body".
Yet even this great god is no more than a faint, far off reflection embodying the ray carrying power from The Supreme Spirit. How then could you hope to look upon the source of power itself?"
Man seeks unity and communion with The Supreme Spirit only for his own benefit. Man has a destiny founded in something greater than himself, and hence his need for that something.
Does the potter keep the pot useless for its purpose, or the smith keep unwrought metal? Only things which serve the purpose for which they were intended are kept and cherished.
The threat of the barbarian king is something upon which you shall be counselled. If you are threatened with the alternatives of death or transgressing our laws, you may transgress them within reason and the bounds of conscience. If, however, you are required to deny all that you hold to be good and true, to betray all that we hold sacred, then you must accept death for the sake of your soul. You will be informed about these things by Kuin of Abalon who comes later, so only the things you enquire about are answered.
This will solve some difficulties, and if the barbarians think themselves superior because they contain Him within a name, let it be so and hold yourself in peace.
The rest of this letter is missing, but on a small recovered scrap dealing with buildings, it refers to Galheda.
