  • The vikings got here first

    Around the year 1000 A.D. Leif Erickson discovered a place that he called "Vinland" which is now the province Newfoundland in Canada. They only stayed a few years before sailing back to Greenland, though. The proof that they actually went was ruins of a viking settlement in newfoundland that was found in 1960. In conclusion, even though Christopher Columbus was known for discovering the new word, the viking found it 500 years before he did.
