More: An ancient site spotted from space could rewrite the history of Vikings in North America (1. April 2016)To date, the sagas have only led archaeologists to one actual, verified Norse historical site in the New World — the 1000-year-old seaside settlement L’Anse aux Meadows on the northernmost tip of Newfoundland.
It would take 55 years and a view from space to track down a possible second one.
The new archaeological find, announced Thursday, offers tantalizing evidence of a Viking presence 300 miles from the only place in Canada they’d ever been seen before.
This is no April Fool's joke (I think)!
