    A thousand years ago, fearless Viking explorer Leif Ericson secretly invaded Minnesota and claimed it for King Olaf. Today, it remains the last outpost of that once-mighty empire. But archaeologists say none of this ever happened. They say Minnesota has fallen victim to the greatest practical joke of all time. They say it’s better to get history right than to tell a good story. Well, who cares what they say? Welcome to Minnesota, the Lost Conquest of the Viking Age!
