    “SYNOPSIS should be: Evidence of Viking presence in North America has challenged archaeologists and historians for years. The Vikings came to northern Canada nearly 1,000 years ago. They rowed into Hudson Bay to follow the Viking Waterway. The Viking Waterway was the water route from Hudson Bay to the Gulf of Mexico. Wynland of West was the northern terminal of the Viking Waterway passage over the Horst (table land of western Minnesota.) Wynland of West was located at Ulen Minnesota. This film explores the Viking visits to North America, which are recorded in the oldest American History, the Maalan Aarum. The first 38 stanzas of the Maalan Aarum are Online as LENAPE LAND, which is formatted for mobile devices.” — MyronDavid, 6 Jun 2013
