This is almost common knowledge now in regards to the Vikings. I think there has been more travel across the oceans than we want to admit for some reason.

T - Bob posted an article from a legitimate anthropology source that was a huge puzzle. In a cave in Brazil they found the remains of an ancient people who had the DNA of people from Australia. And/or the surrounding Islands .
It predates the Bering Straits land bridge theory. Those people could not have come to South America that way , that early.
The takeaway is its throws off the timeline.
Must have had some very good boats to cross the Pacific. And then have been just as lucky to have traversed the continent of South America.

I recall reading that a cave somewhere in the states had oriental artifacts that were acient. There’s been intercontinental travel long before we thought.

So, Columbus Day should be changed to Viking Day
