Visitor Tips and News About Mysterious Viking Tower

A quick recap of who built the Tower, according to various theories: Vikings (1120 AD), Knights Templar (1398), Chinese (1421), Portuguese (1501), English (1583), colonists (1600s). The last time we visited the Tower it was besieged by trench-digging archeologists, so there may be more theories to come!
