There were several 'false' Viking settlements, hoaxs perpretrated in the late 19th/early 20th centuries in Canada and North America.
Eric the Red founded the first settlements in Greenland. His son, Lief Erikson explored and settled in Vinland/North America. L'Anse Aux Meadows is the only know/discovered settlement, but the sagas describe more than one settlement. Other than a single coin found in a Native American trash heap in Maine, little to no evidence exists other than Meadows.

I was wondering about that myself. What part of the Viking era is OOP?
Are these modern Norse or other Scandinavians, or a very old
reenactment group? Or did they just get lost for a really long time?
Is it possible to earn a living in modern Minnesota going a-Viking? Or
do they work at WalMart in that long off-season?
