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

I know! they were skilled seafarers, traders, farmers, merchants, mercenaries, explorers - explorers that in all likelihood explored the vast majority of the eastern US/Canada/Canadian arctic, travelled from the norse lands far into central asia, north africa, and all throughout europe.

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

i've always been of the mind that early people travelled far more then we give them credit for. there have always been young men(and women too) who want to know what's over the horizon :D

This just probes that Columbus was simply a tourist

A tourist who (recently appears to have) had spent time in Iceland - literally only a decade or two after greenland settlement vanished. An iceland who would have still had survivors who had journeyed from Greenland to North America. Minor details though :whistle:

I would love to see a game based off Viking and Norse Mythology. It could be like the Oblivion and Skyrim style game play, but with the shape of the world back when Vikings and Norse people roamed the world. Settlements and petty wars could definitely make the game extremely fun!

Didn't Barry Fell already suggest this? And most if not all of what Fell claimed to be ancient European and Mediterranean script (Celtic, Celt-Iberian, Libyan, Phoenician), has been disproved by science, as far as I know.

It would be interesting to see how these visits correlated with extreme climate change. Were these explorers hugging the coastlines of polar ice floe in colder years allowing them to travel further eastward. If so, it really seems possible they could have traveled much further south along the Atlantic coast and established settlements to weather the winters.
