EXPLORATION (985 AD to 1909) ERA

Some interesting facts:

  • Vikings: DNA testing has proved that the ancestors of some of the Grants were Vikings. As we now know, the Vikings visited North America probably as early as 985. Possibly some of these early Viking visitors were at least distantly related to the Grants. (See Hurstwic for interesting accounts of Vikings in North America.)
