Here, however, an opportunity presents itself of calling in question the correctness of the assertion, that in the Vinland of the Scandinavians no remains are to he found of stone buildings from the Ante-Columbian period. The ancient structure in Newport, respecting which Dr. Webb has given us the preceding account, merits a more atten- tive consideration. There is no mistaking in this instance the style in which the more ancient stone edifices of the North were constructed, the style which belongs to the Roman or Ante-Gothic architecture, and which, especially after the time of Charlemagne, diffused itself from Italy over the whole of the West and North of Europe, where it con- tinued to predominate until the close of the 12th century; that style which some authors have from one of its most striking characteristics called flic round arch style, the same which in England is denominated Saxon and some times Norman architecture. On the ancient structure in Newport there are no ornaments remaining, which might possibly have served to guide us in assigning the probable date of its erection. That no vestige whatever is found of the pointed arch, nor any approximation to it, is indicative of an earlier rather than of a later period.
