...in Tennessee (Marilyn, have you heard about this?)

Memphis| A group of volunteers cleaning up the shores of the Mississippi river near the biggest city in Tennessee, have stumbled upon the remains of an ancient boat encrusted in mud. A team of archeologists from the University of Memphis that was rapidly called to the site, confirmed that the ship is most certainly a Viking knarr, suggesting the Norse would have pushed their exploration of America a lot further than historians previously thought.

I'm not sure about the source yet so still to be taken with a grain of salt. But pretty exciting, no?

Yes exciting indeed. I've looked for some other reputable links but didn't find any. Will be interesting to keep an eye out for.

It is possible. The Vikings left various artifacts around the Great Lakes. So it could be that some of them did paddle down the Mississippi.

Don't forget the early Chinese. lsol

Then again, maybe the early peoples in the Americas sailed all over the World too.

This might appeal... it discusses aboriginal peoples from Australia and environs traveling, perhaps being swept up in storms etc, and evidence of their colonization in unexpected parts of the world. By the BBC.

There is no evidence that the early Chinese crossed the Pacific Ocean. They did travel all the way around Sth. East Asia and had maps of the northern coast of Australia.

The pre-European natives of the Americas crossed the Baring Strait or island hopped through the Aleutian Islands or both.

Sorry Kaere, but worldnewsdaily is a satirical site that posts hoax news as real news.........they are sort of like The Daily Currant (that I've mentioned before that posted about the 'message from God found in DNA'.)

I'd love it if all their news were real!!!!
