Medieval Map showing North America is verified as real

In the 1960s a Medieval map surfaced showing parts of North America. The map, 1440 over fifty years before Columbus' voyage, is believed to have proven Vikings discovered portions of North America and that it was well known outside of the Scandinavian society. Cartographer Rene Larsen of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts stated at a recent conference that he believed the map to be real and authentic based on various tests over the last five years. An important piece of history which changes some perspectives of the time and of the influence of the Viking culture.
