The Finnsburg encounter. [Matthew T Dickerson] -- In the midst of growing powers that threaten his people stands Finn, the Prince of Friesland. Marriage to a beautiful Danish princess, subversion by ambitious nobles, and the coming of a simple monk. The Battle of Finnsburg (or Finnsburh) was a conflict in the Germanic heroic age between Frisians with a possible Jutish contingent, and a primarily Danish party.

Described only in later Anglo-Saxon poetry, if the conflict had an historical basis it most likely occurred around AD. In the story, the young prince Hnæf, described as a Hocing, Half-Dane, and Scylding, was staying as Location: Finnsburg, Frisia.

When Christopher Columbus landed on the island of San Salvador inwhat he discovered were the Taino Indians.

Told from a young Taino boy's point of view, this is a story of how the boy tried to warn his people against welcoming the strangers, who seemed more interested in golden ornaments than friendship. Years later the boy, now an old man, looks back at the destruction 4/5(1).
