Salem, N.H.’s America’s Stonehenge is one of the most famous locations offering itself as proof of pre-Columbian explorers, but Haverhill native David Goudsward says it is far from the only one.

He adds, Massachusetts in particular has many other sites claiming to be proof of these early trips, and they are more interesting as historical notes than as proof of ancient tourists. There’s a reason why Boston not only has a Leif Erikson statue, but it faces the wrong direction.

Goudsward presents “Myth & Megalith,” Monday, April 6, at 7 p.m., at Nevins Memorial Library, 305 Broadway, Methuen.

This program is a brief overview of some of the better-known locations such as Dighton Rock, Westford Knight, Lynn Dolmen and Newport Tower.

There is no charge to attend.
