Is Cape Cod the real Vinland?

In this critical challenge, students review background information (accessed online) about Vinland and the theory that identifies Cape Cod as the likely site of this place where the Vikings travelled. Students then examine primary and secondary source documents to find evidence that supports or contradicts the theory and use the evidence to determine the extent to which the theory is credible.
