    1. Michael Smith says:

      Half a century ago, in They All Discovered America, Michael Boland identified what he called the NEBC Principle No Europeans Before Columbus This is the general attitude of most professional academic historians and they tend to condemn any contrary discussion without even considering the alternatives Boland went somewhat overboard, but since the discovery and excavation of L Anse aux Meadows in Newfoundland by Helge Ingstad in the early 1960s, there has been no question that the Norse were prese [...]

    2. Aaron Meyer says:

      An excellent look at the history of the Greenland Vikings and the possible evidence of their presence in America There is alot of newer finds that I was not aware of in the High Arctic which he talks about, which is exciting because if we are able someday to get archaeological digs up there we may find alot evidence of their being there His explanation of the Kensington Runestone is interesting and linking it to an expedition that was sent out at the same time from Europe I think gives an aura [...]

      If you think Columbus was first you re absolutely wrong If you though that one little trip to Newfoundland was the extent of the Viking visitations to North America you re going to be quite surprised as this book outlines the true scope of Viking exploration in the new world.

      I had thought I was Irish growing up and was surprised to find out I was Norse last name Rhyason is typical of this culture According to this book, Dublin was controlled by the Norse Although this was a research book, I found it a fascinating wealth of information My ancestors were called Norsemen because they were from the north, but they were also called Vikings, since their farm homes for about 30 extended family was called a Vik and those that traveled from it were called Vikings.The creatio [...]

      An interesting book shedding new light on the Viking presence in Greenland and North America Unfortunately it is marred by Davis refusal to provide than the barest minimum of sources for many of his claims Davis provides the weak excuse that this book meant for a general audience, but even so he asks us to take his word for far too much This becomes especially problematic when the first sources that can independently be found for some of Davis claims flat out contradict what he says For example [...]

    7. Birgitta Hoffmann says:

      interesting and thought provoking read on the possibilities of finding Viking evidence in Scotland First published in 2009, it does not mention the new possible possible contact site on Baffin Island, as excavated by Patricia Sutherland and the occasionally sensationalist style can be distracting Still, an interesting book on the state of the research.

    8. Nadia Land-Greene says:

      Read over several months between other books Well researched look at a part of history often neglected Interesting part about how the Vatican helped spread and support the myth that Columbus discovered America
