More on the Vinland Map Controversy
Debate about the authenticity of the Vinland Map continues to rage (as subscribers to MapHist will readily attest). A brief summary is now on About.com (via Matt). That summary points to this site on the controversy, which is still under development (and incomplete in a couple of areas).
I’ve been planning to delve into this subject myself. I have copies of Kirsten Seaver’s Maps, Myths, and Men and the Nova documentary on the map, The Viking Deception; with any luck, I’ll be able to report back to you about them soon.
