The Norse Discovery of America free pdf Excerpt from The Norse Discovery of America The Norse discovery of America is not what we would call a popular question, though it has attracted the attention of many nations. Books and treatises on this subject have appeared in English, French and German. As might be expected, the question has especially interested the people in the Scandinavian countries whence the adventurous navigators drew their origin. After the complete disappearance of the Greenlanders, who in all likelihood were the leaders in the enterprise, their kinsmen in Iceland, Norway, Denmark and Sweden took up their cause and defended their honor. It is only natural that the kinsmen of the explorers should take a lively interest in the achievements of their ancestors. A long list of prominent names testify to the interest that they take in their forefathers. In America the interest in this subject springs from two causes. In the first place there is a general desire to learn and understand the history of the country. Most historians now allow some place to the early Norse discoveries. In the second place the descendants of the old Norsemen have settled in large numbers in this country, and like the Dutch and the French they still cherish a love for the land of their origin and take pride in the achievements of their kinsmen. To the modern Norseman who has had a part in the development of his adopted country it is a feeling of pride to know that his kinsmen were the first white men to set foot on American soil. But the fact that so much is written on this question is not altogether due to national pride or vanity. The main reason why people study the Vinland question is a scientific one.
