Chegoggin, Nova Scotia
In 2000, Swedish archaeologist Mats Larsson of Lund University put forward a claim that Chegoggin is his prime candidate for the location of Leif Erikson's Vinland. Having explored up and down the coasts of Atlantic Canada, Larsson believes that Chegoggin best fits the description of Vinland as given in the Norse sagas.
