ABOUT THIS VIDEO: This is the first of a series of six (+1) strange-but-true compilations about the Vinland Map, which was revealed to the world by Yale University on 11 October 1965.
Part 1, "Spain to the New World," looks at the early known history of the Vinland Map, from 1957 when it was dismissed as a fake by the British Museum, to 1964, when it was donated to Yale University Library by the then-anonymous Paul Mellon, at a valuation believed to be over $700,000. VINLAND MAP SYMPOSIUM SPECIAL MESSAGE! I've put a few thoughts inspired by the 2018 Vinland Map Symposium on my website http://www.vinlandmap.info (labelled as part seven-and-a-half of this series!).
