Did the Vikings come south to Atlantic Canada and Maine? the Skalholt map seems to suggest this. What do you think?

    Pat Sutherland presented her findings October 7 at a meeting of the Council for Northeast Historical Archaeology in St. Johns, NFLD, Canada.

    I was in attendance for that. It was a great presentation.

    When she opened up the floor for questions, I asked whether it would be reasonable to expect that similar evidence might be found on the shores of Hudson Bay. She said, yes, that would be a reasonable expectation.
