Europeans in Pre-Columbian Baffin Island?

53 posts in this topic

though to be fair, while the finds at this site are from no later than 1000, there are other "norse" finds throughout the arctic up until the 15th century or so.

Yes, but I started this thread with that figurine that was dated to max 1000 CE. So it can't represent some Templar knight.

The problem with the Knights Templar is that they came into existence in the first part of the 12th century (1129 CE), and those finds date from no later than 1000 CE.

So that's why I liked that story of Adam von Bremen who mentioned East Frisians setting out on a journey to the far North East around 1040 CE.

OK didn't see the 1000 CE part but to go back to the Vikings living in Normandy starting in 8th century, they quickly became Christian and wouldn't have gone anywhere without a Benedictine monk, so your statuette might well be a that.

Correction: the East Frisians set out on a journey to the North West.

It could have been a Normandian, but is there any record telling us about the Normandians sailing to what may have been Baffiin Island or to the far north-west?
