Archaeologists think they have discovered the second-known Viking settlement in North America.
Using satellite images, scientists identified changes in the landscape that suggested there might be something beneath the surface.
The only other known Viking settlement in North America is in Newfoundland, Canada. This one at Point Rosee is on the southern coast, about 300 miles from the first site.
