The Vikings in the Americas

The Vikings are the first Eurasians to have “discovered” the Americas.

The Vikings, these fierce sailors, had set foot on the East coast of the Americas well before Christopher Columbus did. Regularly, we hear stories that others before them did it such as the Arabs or the Chinese via the west coast. At Sci&Fi, we only believe what we see, and in this case only the Vikings left an indisputable archeological proof of their visits: l’Anse aux Meadows. From their tales (named the Sagas), we also know how they named this land, the Vinland (the land where vines grow). The most amazing part in all of this is that these events happened more than a thousand years ago! See for yourself
