There's a really nice map article on the BBC magazine site today:

I'd never heard of this map until reading the article. Definitely worth a read.

Very interesting. Especially so since I am very interested in history.

Many thanks!

Looks like the Vinland Map might be older, if it's authentic.

Still, neat article.


Cheers,
