Archaeologists believe they may have discovered a second Viking settlement
in North America. The site at Point Rosee in southwestern Newfoundland was
first identified using satellite imagery. Subsequent excavation uncovered
what is tentatively identified as a Norse settlement dated somewhere between
800 AD and 1300 AD. The new site is more than 400 miles southwest of L’Anse
aux Meadows in northern Newfoundland, the only other Viking site in North
America.

Did you think that someone else would have naturally landed in North
America from a different contintent, PYKERLOON?

Be stupid to believe Asia would have landed on the west coast and
traversed the contintent to "establish a settlement" on the east
coast.

Does that deflate your racist pride, BYKERLOON?

Look like you got it bass-ackwards there. Some Dene seem to have
crossed from ?Labrador? *to* Yurp, likely sometime in the Younger
DDryas. See Dúnedain, from Tolkien (he left out the part about
the "Kings of Men" being brownies ;)

maybe the locals weren't quite as passive about it as the europeans.
Fortunately for the "skraelings" the Vikings didn't introduce any European
diseases like smallpox, measles, plague, cholera, diphtheria, influenza,
scarlet fever, typhus, tuberculosis, and whooping cough. Had that happened,
the Pilgrims 600 years later may well have landed on a near-depopulated
continent...
