Barabil, The Odtoni Viking !
“O Lord save us from the fury of the Northmen.”
A sword age, a wind age, a wolf age,
no longer is there mercy among men.
The Sybil's Prophecy,
circa 1000 AD
The Nowegian Viking explorer, Leif Eriksson, is reputed to have sailed to North America about A.D.1000 and landed at a place called Vinland. Suggested locations for Vinland include Newfoundland in Canada and New England in the USA.
In 1004, Vikings settled in Newfoundland, but after two years they abandoned their attempt to colonise America. Although Ericsson was possibly the first European to discover America, his travels were not as well documented as Columbus.
The Story of the Minnesota Vikings:
It seems that Vikings could well have reached Minnesota, long before any other Europeans. The story was based on the discovery of a 'Runestone' weighing about 200-pound, by a farmer near Kensington, Minnesota in 1898.
The stone was inscribed in 'runic', which was the alphabet used by the ancient Norse-men. The inscription tells of 8 Swede and 22 Norwegian explorers travelling through Minnesota. It also tells of the murder of 10 of them, by Indians, at a camp on what may have been Cormorant lake. The date inscribed in the stone was 1362. If this was true, it meant that the Vikings were in Minnesota 130 years before Columbus 'discovered' America in 1492.
Historians have recently come to believe that Vikings landed on the east coast of America, more than 400 years before Columbus. For various reasons however, historians refuse to accept the runestone as being authentic, yet none have been able to prove it a forgery, or explain how it came to be found in Douglas County, Minnesota.

scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and came
to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone
network more than 100 years ago.
Not to be outdone by the Danes, in the weeks that followed, Swedish
scientists dug to a depth of 20 meters, and shortly after, headlines
in the Swedish newspapers read: Swedish archaeologists have found
traces of 200 year old copper wire and have concluded that their ancestors
already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred
years earlier than the Danes.
One week later, The Klub, a Sunburg, Minnesota newspaper reported
the following: After digging as deep as 30 meters in corn fields
near Games Lake, Ole Johnson, a self taught archeologist, reported
that he found absolutely nothing. Ole has therefore concluded that
300 years ago Norwegians were already using wireless.
