When Leif Met Bigfoot: The Myth of the Norse Discovery of Sasquatch

A session at SkeptiCamp Chicago 2014

Saturday 5th April, 2014

12:20pm to 12:20pm (CST)

"In an attempt to extend the history of Bigfoot sightings, many proponents have sought evidence of earlier encounters in myth, folklore, and literature. Some claim
that Leif Eiriksson and the Norse explorers of the New World encountered Bigfoot, thus providing Sasquatch with a provenance that reaches back to the first European visits to the Americas. Is there any justification for these claims, and, if not, where did they come from?"
