  13. The Vikings were first to “discover” the American continent! This picture shows an aerial view of L’Anse aux Meadows, UNESCO World Heritage Site and Canadian National Heritage Site and archaeological site on the island of New Foundland, Canada.

Erikson was the first European who landed in America (excluding Greenland).
