Runestone Man Movie Project

$1,250 of $5,000 goal

This is the story of a human skull fragment that was found one day's journey north of Kensington Minnesota that could be one of the Vikings that was killed back in 1362.

We are raising funds to do the DNA test and Carbon 13 test, each test is around $2,000. I also need funds for making the Runestone Man Movie. I need a good video camera and a drone for aerial shots. I also need some computer equipment and software.  The amount of money raised will determine the quality of the video. I am going to make the video regardless of how the tests come out because it is a great story either way.

We will do the DNA test so as soon as we reach the $2,000 level.

Anything will help, thanks for your support.

Good News! The DNA lab was able to extract Nuclear DNA which enables them to perform sex identification and Y-chromosome analysis, if male. This next phase will cost more money so any help would be greatly appreciated.
