Discover the evidence that Vikings walked on American soil—centuries before Columbus.
When Columbus claimed to have discovered America in 1492 and the Borgia pope declared it a New World for Catholic Spain, the Vatican started a five-hundred-year conspiracy to conceal the true story of Viking America.
In this groundbreaking new work by the author of The Early English Settlement of Orkney and Shetland, the true extent of the Viking discovery and colonization of the eastern seaboard of North America is fully examined, taking into account the new archaeological, linguistic, and DNA evidence that supplements the historic account. For four centuries or more, from their first visits around AD 1000 to the eve of the Columbus voyages, the Vikings explored and settled thousands of miles of the coasts and rivers of North America. From New York’s Long Island to the Canadian High Arctic, the New World was a playground for Viking adventurers. And, he argues, the name the Vikings gave to this New World was America.
