About this book

Excerpt:

Isn’t it something of a commentary on our historical outlook at this late date that the suggestion of a Norse exploration and settlement of the Great Lakes region of America almost 1000 years ago is received with reserve? Superficially the notion that the Vinland of the Vikings lay on the Atlantic coast is perhaps allowable. But only by ignoring the records and the relics of our first white visitors is it justifiable. For almost two generations the plow and the spade have been offering evidence that has been received with scant respect. Within the last few years the Ken- sington rune stone has been denounced as a “forgery” by historical writers. This is a measure of the view taken by the modern world. The impressive Dodd find at Beardmore has only made a dent in the wall of un- belief.
