A new look at Viking and English explorations

Eminent British naval historian Geoffrey Marcus gives us a new look at pre Columbian Viking and British exploration in the North Atlantic area. He provides us much additional information on the Viking discoveries and settlements in Iceland and Greenland. Also, he adds useful data on early Irish and Viking ship construction. Marcus provides evidence that the first European to sight, though not land on, the North American continent was Bjarni Herjolfsson, not Leif Eiriksson. Readers interested in this little discussed period of history should not miss this important study.
