For the past 50 years—since the discovery of a thousand-year-old Viking way station in Newfoundland—archaeologists and amateur historians have combed North America's east coast searching for traces of Viking visitors.

It has been a long, fruitless quest, littered with bizarre claims and embarrassing failures. But at a conference in Canada earlier this month, archaeologist Patricia Sutherland announced new evidence that points strongly to the discovery of the second Viking outpost ever discovered in the Americas.

It was a help too :tu:
I have a growing collection of Norse/New-world articles and finds, etc. I keep adding to them. Lol, it's like an addiction :w00t: And it's a whole chapter of human history most people don't want to exist.

Whats even more interesting is Eskimo crossing from Siberia into America in 10/11 century and soon they fight with Vikings.

They attack Constantinople, trade in Baghdad, Khazars and Mongols. Sailed to Marocco. Sicily.

Didn't Leif Erickson actually discover the Americas before Columbus?

Though technically "discovering america" is a pretty eurocentric viewpoint.  Its not really possible to "discover" a place that is already populated by humans.  Just sayin...

Technically it was a merchant sailer named Bjarni Herjolfsson. Who was blown off course on his way to Greenland and sighted Markland (ie, Newfoundland/Labrador) and returned to tell his tale. He was most likely the first european in an age to step foot in the Americas.

I found this article today.
Further investigation to be done.  It could predate Viking visits to Canada by a long time!

At the heart of science is an essential balance between two seemingly contradictory attitudes--an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counterintuitive they may be, and the most ruthless skeptical scrutiny of all ideas, old and new.
This is how deep truths are winnowed from deep nonsense. -- Carl Sagan

How fascinating were those Vikings .. They were much much more than mere barbarians ..

Ok, if this makes you feel better. Between Erickson and Columbus who was first to land in the Americas. Just sayin...

It's good to have some skepticism so you won't be gullible & naïve. But to much skepticism
can make you narrow minded to all possibilities no matter how unconventional.
