Westviking published in 1965 contains a remarkable amount of distortion and fabrication of fact even by the appalling standards of the Canadian publishing industry.Mowat begins with theGwyn Jones translation of the two fourteenth century sagas that talk of the existence of North American Viking colony called Vinland:
- EPUB1-Erí download; ks saga rauða or the Saga of Erik the Red and
-2- the Grænlendinga saga or the Saga of the Greenlander
Mowat then takes his boat to the departure point in Greenland of Leif Erikson Vinland's founder and then follows the route described in the sagas.Please hold your laughter. This is essentially the method used by Heinrich Schliemann to discover Mycennae.
The big problem is that Mowat locates Vinland on the West of Newfounland despite the fact that archeologists had discovered it five years earlier in 1960 in at a location on the East Side of Newfoundland some 972 kilometres from the location proposed by Mowat.
