Vikings were in North America 1,000 years ago, study finds

NEWFOUNDLAND, Canada - Scientists have known for many years that Vikings ó the first Europeans to arrive in North America ó settled on Canadaís northern tip of Newfoundland.

However, it has thus far not been possible to determine when this activity took place until recently.

Now, researchers believe the site, known as LíAnse aux Meadows, was occupied by Vikings exactly 1,000 years ago, according to a new study published Wednesday.

The study, published in Nature, is new evidence that the Vikings were present in Newfoundland in AD 1021.

"Our new date lays down a marker for European cognisance of the Americas, and represents the first known point at which humans encircled the globe," the study authors wrote.

Researchers analyzed transversal and radial sections of wood for tree-ring samples, which indicated a spike in a naturally radioactive form of carbon detected in ancient pieces of wood from the site.

This became the scientific key to the exact date that the Norse were.

"This date offers a secure juncture for late Viking chronology," the study authors continued. "Together with other cosmic-ray events, this distinctive feature will allow for the exact dating of many other archaeological and environmental contexts."

Itís uncertain whether the 1021 date is near the beginning or end of the Viking occupation, but further research of other wood samples could help identify more dates.

Carbon dating is a method that provides objective age estimates for carbon-based materials that originated from living organisms. Researchers use data from tree rings, sediment layers and other samples to calibrate the carbon dating process.

The latest study also overcome the imprecision of previous age estimates by making use of the cosmic-ray-induced upsurge in atmospheric radiocarbon concentrations.

They have no problems telling us over and over that Vikings were some of the first migrants to visit this land. But when are they going to come out and publicly admit that Africans were migrating to North America and that many of the people they saw on this land were of dark/black skin and that there were people were here that could be classified as Negroid?

They're always hesitant when it comes to telling the real history involving (us) black people, while doing what they can to Europeanize or whiten up everything as best as possible.

has not been known for years, it's in the first two paragraphs

yes, they had a general idea, article is about them being able to accurately pinpoint it to a place in time

Came in to post this. Thank you. Mfs been saying for the last 500 years it was impossible before Colombus. Oh NOW it ain’t…. because Vikings did it? “Oh no no no, Egypt and Nubia could NEVER. It just wasn’t possible for that time” even though they were wayyy beyond in every other facet of life. History is bullsh*t with the goal post moving. I do believe Vikings did it. But I know that they wasn’t the only or the first. Just sayin.

Olmecs were not black, there is no scientific evidence that backs that claim, the fact you're using wide noses as evidence is appalling

Talking before you even read the book. Going by pictures. Ivan Van Sertima says the Africans meet the Olmec and traded with them not that they are African. And the counter point is they don’t believe that Africans at that time had the technology to get to the Americas and back during that time.

There you have it folks.

Have to remind them that the White Man was here first.

It actually makes sense when you think about it...

White people were the actual Natives, the real rulers of Egypt (despite them wearing African clothing that Africans still wear today), and were brought to a foreign land, most of which died just from the journey, and forced into slavery.

Thanks Fox News!
