[RESCHEDULED] Historic Newton presents: Bayman in the Bay State – Viking Myths
September 24 @ 5:00 pm
On September 17th, explore the origins of the myths surrounding the Vikings and Leif Erikson’s alleged exploration and settlement of Massachusetts. Learn about how negligent scholarship and forged maps and transcriptions have led to a statue of Erikson on Boston’s Commonwealth Avenue. Several other monuments to the Vikings remain in our state today after their fabrication during the 19th century, including Norumbega Tower on the Charles River.
