World News Daily Report made some time ago another fake news story about Vikings in North America. This time they concocted a story about a Viking settlement near the town of Cheboygan, on the coast of Lake Huron. You can see the fake story here: USA: Viking Artifacts discovered near Great Lakes
This story was published by World News Daily Report, which is a homepage with intentional fake news. They write in their disclaimer: “WNDR assumes, however all responsibility for the satirical nature of its articles and for the fictional nature of their content. All characters appearing in the articles in this website – even those based on real people – are entirely fictional and any resemblance between them and any persons, living, dead, or undead is purely a miracle.”.
There isn’t much information in the fake story. I days that 194 artifacts have been found by an amateur archeologist and that the Department of Archaeology of the University of Michigan is going to take over the site. The other information in the article are some of the artifacts. As in the fake story, they made about the Mississippi Viking Ship, they have borrowed the picture from a real archeological excavation. The artifacts in the article were found in the area near Trondheim in Norway. Source
