That seems even less likely, you know -- surviving a long voyage to the Americas where they manage to not end up dying of the local diseases or at the hands of anyone who found them -- then coming to a king's court, unable to speak the local language and then inventing a new way to make brick, which they then manage to teach the construction crews AND convince the king that this is the best way to build things... ala A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court?
