Arguably one of America's first european settlers, who came to the North American continent long before it was commonly thought europeans visited.
Peter was known and buried under his nickname by unknown associate(s) who thought highly enough of him to chisel his burial 'Anglo-Saxon rune stone' marker and place it at the entrance to an Arizona registered archaelogical cave dwelling site, first recorded in the Arizona records in 1984, in the Mustang Mountains in southeastern Arizona, where it is presumed he was in search of mineral ore sources. As Peter's aparent grave marker was not recorded in the 1984 records by the surveying archealogists, it is surmised that later relic hunters dug at the site revealing Peter's 'coffee table' sized marker which in part has been translated to read:
'THE BODY IN CONTRAST WITH THE SOUL FITS/LAYS,
ROUGH HURECH HERE,
HE ENJOYED (ENTERTAINMENT, JOY, MERRIMENT, MAYBE MEANS) A GOOD LIFE,
ROUGH HURECH'S BODY - FAME AND GLORY,
DUST BEYOUND EDEN - EDEN'S TEMPLE'
Peter was aparently the last of his surname from the Staffordshire area of England where his ancestors owned a dwelling which in later centuries among other things was and to this day is a 'public house' which still stands, now known as Whittington House.
Peter 'Rough' Hurech would not yet be known to the general public if not for the Season 1, Episode 2 of 'America Unearthed', subtitled: 'Mideaval Desert Mystery' first broadcast 29 Decenber 2012, hosted by the show's creator, Scott Wolter, noted Archeogeoligist, more commonly known for his work in researching the 'Kensington Rune Stone' in the 1990s.
* Please note: the added photograph of an 'area cave dwelling' is only 'loosely representative' of the true cave specifically investigated, which is devoid of any such man made internal structures, is far smaller with a human capacity of possibly 1 or 2 dozen people at most, and seems to have dimensions roughly 6-10 feet wide and high, and possibly 20-30 feet deep with a smaller crawl space at the rear.
