    Yeah? So? Like I said, it is old news to people who study history. There is also some pretty good evidence that there was a Celtic colony here in the new world that existed for hundreds of years, over one thousand years before Christ. Like I said, if you actually study history it becomes quite plain that man has always traveled a lot. And the weather we have today is mild compared to what they had to endure.

    Vikings were unrepentant in their hostility and brutality towards Christianized Europeans. Nothing to celebrate there.

    That said, this is really interesting. I've been to the Maritime provinces in Canada on several occasions- this will be a nice point of reference/interest to be inclined for another trip haha.
