Archeologists can now prove the Vikings made landfall in the Americas hundreds of years before Columbus reached the Bahamas.
The ship, which dates back to the Viking Period or the earlier Merovingian period, was found with the help of a high-resolution, ground-penetrating georadar.
The metal detector enthusiasts, along with two coin dealers who assisted in selling the concealed find, have all been sentenced to up to 10 years in jail. The collection is worth an estimated $15.4 million.
There is something very troubling about what the Viking “Allah” story reveals about the relationship between news media and experts.
