Vikings in Sodus Bay: Evidence Behind the Legend

Vikings in Sodus Bay: Evidence Behind the Legend

For many years, people believed that Christopher Columbus was the first European to set foot in the "New World." However, in 1960, the remains of a Norse settlement were discovered at L'Anse aux Meadows in Newfoundland, Canada, by two Norwegians, husband and wife team of Helge Ingstad and Anne StineIngstad. This discovery changed what we knew about the European exploration of America. Joe O'Toole, Director of the Sodus Bay Lighthouse Museum, will discuss this possibility while presenting a short history outlining the Norse "discovery" of the New World.
