"predates the Vikings by several hundred years" was the phrase in the article that seemed strange. Sounds like a claim of pre-Viking contact to me.

comment Why did East India Company accept Government of India Act 1858?
This is a great question. A good answer to it would help illuminate the difference between a country and a company that sometimes acts like one.

@TylerDurden, I'm trying to find out about what people believed before they learned what we know now. I think historical beliefs are on topic here, but we'll see what the community thinks.
