    "Counting tree rings reveals that wooden objects previously found at an archaeological site on Newfoundland’s northern peninsula were made from trees felled in the year 1021."

    L'Anse aux Meadow was settled by the Vikings around the year 1021, over 400 years before Columbus, and settled as a possible trading post and voyage refilling stop for ships.
