Other evidence for Vinland





Regardless of whether or not the map is genuine, it has been independently proven to general satisfaction that Greenland was settled by Vikings around 970, a settlement which lasted until the fifteenth century.

In regards to the Americas, the archaeological finds in L'Anse aux Meadows in present day Newfoundland, Canada, show that there was a Viking settlement which predates Christopher Columbus and his finding of the New World in 1492.

The "Skalholt" map (marked 1570) depicts what can only be northern Newfoundland and calls it "Promontorium Winlandia", at the exact position of the L'Anse aux Meadows Norse site and parallel to England.

Also note how the "finger" of Newfoundland (on a modern map) "points" in the direction of southern Greenland and is so depicted on the Skalholt map.
