Who discovered America? Now before you answer, “Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492,” stop and think about it a while.
It is so nice to live in a truly informed world! Yes, archaeologists have discovered Norse-type settlements in the northern part of Newfoundland that have led them to believe that Leif Erickson and his Vikings discovered America in 1000A.D. But before we get too conclusive with our investigation, let us not forget the Indians. No, not the Cleveland Indians or the Atlanta Braves! The Indians! Native Americans! When did Native Americans discover the northern continent? In reality, no one will ever truly know who was the earliest to come here.
