      Interesting. Would like to read the actual archaeological papers on this. I don't doubt the possibility at all, we know the Vikings were in N. America. I do question whether the pics in the article are the articles actually found.

            Yeah, here in RI, we have the Narragansett Stone, also alleged Norse. I happen to have taken the first published photos of this rock. It was stolen in 2012. All several tons. It was returned and will be installed in a public park in Wickford, RI very soon. Probably in October. It has the infamous hooked X, also featured on the Kensington Stone. Who knows, it eroded onto the shoreline after 1939. These are the first photos taken of the rock. As far as we know. Spring, 1985. My team, that's me in the last photo. Barnacles filled the characters the day we located it. I make no claims for it or the other NA runestones.

              Way cool discovery SD - looks like a major find. Apparently the site was untouched until ground was broken by the landscapers, so lots of good tools and weapons quickly left to tell the story. Seems as though the vikings always got the natives bristles (a.k.a. arrows) up wherever they traveled - boat envy perhaps?

              Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.

                Guys, the report is a joke! Please read the disclaimer from the website itself. I posted it. One of the headlines scrolling above the Viking story reads:

                "Paleontologists discover human remains in dinosaur feces".

                World News Daily is a satirical news site. There is no such site in the Hudson Valley.....

                  Crap, Don't tell Roger. Thanks for cluing me in. Thanks for sharing those photos Charlie. I should have looked closer at the other articles they had on that site. Would have figured it out.

                  That's it, I'm not posting anymore Viking stuff.

                    Well, here's the earlier one. In this instance, the photos were taken from a discovery somewhere in Scandinavia. The photos on the NY article are probably legit as well, and lifted from somewhere. I knew a guy from Iceland who flipped out over this one from the Great Lakes. I had to find the disclaimer before he believed me.
                    But they're written to fool. Another involved finding a Norse ship in the Mississippi River.



                    At least they are more believable then some of the stuff on the History Channel these days!

                      Yes, that website is a real pain because it has a habit of scattering some factual news in with the crap that it invents. Other news agencies also pick up on the stories without checking the source. As Charlie says, the last "Vikings in America" story they ran used pictures of genuine Viking artefacts from the Trondhein museum in Norway:

                      Ho boy. This is the only article I can find on this alleged discovery. If anyone finds out more, please post. Sounds quite dubious at the moment.....


                      Whenever you see these kinds of stories (Vikings, giants, aliens etc), it always pays to run a Google search with the word "hoax", "spoof" or "fake" in the search parameters.

                          I don’t know where the “Lenape arrowheads” came from, but the first picture is an authentic Viking burial excavated at Islandbridge near Dublin in Ireland… one of about 60 in the general region.

                          The second picture of the “Norse Smithy” is in fact another authentic Viking grave which is believed to be the cremation burial of a blacksmith together with the tools of his trade. A guy called Leif Arne Nordheim uncovered it beneath some flagstones in the back yard of his home in Sogndalsdalen, Norway last year.

                            A viking blacksmith buried with his tools

                            More than a thousand years ago a blacksmith died. His tools were buried with him. Now they give us insight into the work and status of a blacksmith in the viking society
