hoax[edit]

(Unsure why "hoax" was added here. It says Wetman added it, but when I asked, he said he'd never seen the page) wiegee 05:29, Jan 6, 2005 (UTC)

Doctorates[edit]

I've added "dr." in front of Anne Stine Ingstad. She was a Dr. Philos., University of Oslo, 1978, on the L'Anse aux Meadows excavations. In addition, both Anne Stine and Helge Ingstad held several honorary doctorates.

I'm also OK with dropping both "dr." titles. What's the custom on Wikipedia?

Would it not be an idea to put academic (and other) titles under a separate heading? Also, please sign your edits --Grumpy444grumpy 10:51, 7 March 2006 (UTC)
I heard Helge Ingstad speak on several occasions and he always laughed when someone in the audience addressed him as "Dr. Ingstad," protesting that he had earned only a law degree, and that the only "Dr. Ingstad" in his home was his wife. When it came to academic archaeology, he thought of himself only as an experienced amateur. --Michael K. Smith 16:48, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

Just dating[edit]

Stine's page says discovery was 1960. So does L'Anse aux Meadows. Ingstad's says '61. Which is it? Trekphiler (talk) 08:33, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

There is a New York Times article from November 1963, published the day after Ingstad and Stine publicly reported their discovery. The article says that digging at the L'Anse site began in 1960. I suppose the appropriate date depends on one's definition of "discovery." The ruins were discovered in 1960. Solid evidence that it was a Norse Greenlander settlement may have been determined in subsequent years. Jrgilb (talk) 16:46, 27 November 2009 (UTC)
