Re: Second Potential Viking Site Found in Newfoundland

There is now a local guy claiming a third site very near the second. Says he has been trying to get interest for years. No real info at this moment.

Many historians and archeologists today seriously consider these folk tales/tribal history to have a total comprehensive view of historic events and without these clues, the discoveries in Newfoundland may never have occurred. And, there is something now that Science has accepted as fact--Ancestral/Genetic Memory which is knowledge that has been encoded in our familial DNA and passed from one generation to the next. Thanks for the great insight. Rognvald
This is also how knowledge to navigate the Pacific was passed down & recently resurrected on cruising canoes, this despite years of anthropologists proclaiming it could not be done. Somehow its OK if the hand-me-down is your religious icon but not for anybody else. We would do well to bay close attention to the oral history of all of these native peoples. Somehow the PHD behind the desk is the anointed one while a preponderance of data is ignored. "not invented here?"
