    'America Discovered!', But By Whom?

    From an article entitled "The Discovery of America by the Northmen"

    "Thorfinn with the rest of the company, in all one hundred and thirty-one men, sailed southward and arrived at a place where a river falls into the sea from a lake. Opposite to the mouth of the river were large islands. They steered into the lake and called the place Hop. On the low grounds they found fields covered with wheat growing wild, and on the rising grounds vines. Here they were visited by great numbers of the natives in canoes. These people are described as sallow-colored, ill looking, with unsightly heads of hair, large eyes, and broad cheeks. Thorfinn and his company erected their houses a little above the bay and passed the winter there. No snow fell and the cattle found their food in the open field. In the following spring, 1008, the natives began to assemble in numbers and opened a trade with the strangers. The articles exchanged were furs on the one side, and strips of cloth on the other. In the course of a season, Gudrida, the wife of Thorfinn, gave birth to a son who was called Snorre, and who was the first child of Europeon descent born in America..."

    Turman found a copy of The Graduate, and thought highly enough of the story that he made a movie he considered to be 90-percent faithful to the book.

    But Turman and director Mike Nichols made one key adaptation, changing the Braddocks from WASP-y blonde characters into a dark-haired, more ethnic-looking family.

    Could very well be. This description sounds like Niagra Falls.

    Correction, that sounds like the Bay of Islands, Corner Brook and Deer Lake, Newfoundland.

    Post 'America Discovered!', But By Whom?

    In your opinion, who discovered America? Who was the first person, or group of people from the Old World to set foot on the New World (excluding the native inhabitants)?

    I wouls suggest various paleolithic migrations into the Americas, that included at least two racial types, and probably more.

    Post AW: 'AMERICA DISCOVERED!', But By Who?

    The Vikings, if I'm not completely mistaken.

    They tried to establish a colony but failed. That's all I know.

    Well put. What racial types did these involve? Mongoloid and possibly Caucasoid peoples, according to skull finds. Of course, can we apply the term "discovery" if there is no larger world forum for the paleolithics to report to? The first recorded discovery would have been in the 10th century AD by Biarni Herjulfsson, the accidental discovery which led eventually to Eiriksson's 1000 AD "discovery".
