Archeologists have made a discovery that could change our understanding of the history of Vikings migrating to North America. To date, L'Anse Aux Meadows - located at Newfoundland's northernmost tip - near to Quirpon Lighthouse Inn - has been considered the only site offering authenticated evidence of a Norse presence on the North American continent. However, satellite imaging has led archeologist to Point Rosee - on the southwestern tip of Newfoundland, near to Cape Anguille Lighthouse Inn - to conduct a dig that may alter our understanding of the Vikings' historic movements. Initial evidence, while yet to be validated, suggests the Vikings may have spent a short and ultimately unsuccessful period attempting to settle in Newfoundland.
