The Vinland Map, originally found in 1957, has miffed and mystified scholars by challenging one of the most sacred dates of history. Was 1492 the first time America was discovered?
This old parchment was deemed original and untampered by the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. Carbon dating assigned 1440 A.D. to this map making for some interesting discussion because New Foundland is clearly plotted in 500 year old ink. That's 50 years before Christopher Columbus "discovered" America.
