Searching for the Vikings: 3 Sites Possibly Found in Canada

Archaeologists are investigating three sites in Canada that may have been used by the Vikings. Two are located in Newfoundland - at Sop's Arm & Point Rosee - while a third is on Baffin Island.

The map below shows Sops' Arm, Point Rosee and the Nanook site on Baffin Island. It also shows L'Anse aux Meadows, the only confirmed Viking site in the New World. Credit: map by Schuyler Erle, modified by Owen Jarus, CC Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported
