A possible new Viking site has been discovered in Canada, which would be the farthest south the Vikings have ever been known to settle.
According to the New York Times, the new site in Newfoundland was picked up last summer by infrared satellite images, which saw manmade shapes under vegetation. The Washington Post describes the historic finds as “a fire-cracked stone and some mangled scraps of iron.”
