Did the "long ships" actually make it to Vancouver Island...???
Or did an adventurous Viking somehow make his way from Lake Winnipeg to the Pacific coast...???
It’s been a while since I first read all of this website, maybe the answer is there in part. There’s a fascinating section on Easter Island also, it shows structures that are remeniscent of structures on the island of St Kilda, in the Atlantic, off the New Hebredes. I’m inclined to think the Vikings (I think of them as Norwegan sailors) owned the oceans in the Northern hemisphere.
It's on the island of St Kilda, not shown on the map, that one finds undated structures such as this, named cleits, supposedly constructed for storage of goodness knows what:
Which appear in similar appearance to structures found on Easter Island, described as chicken coops!
