Still searching for the link to the academc study, but I thought I'd post this if for no other reason than as a reminder to look into it:

RUINS OF VIKING SETTLEMENT DISCOVERED NEAR HUDSON RIVER

A team of lanscaping workers, proceeding to an excavation near the banks of the Hudson river, has discovered the archeological remains of a Norse village dating from the 9th or 10th Century AD.

The workers were digging with a mechanical shovel near the shores of Minisceongo creek, when they stumbled upon the ruins of an ancient building. A team of archaeologists linked to Columbia University, was called to the site to inspect the findings, and they rapidly identified the site as a possible Viking settlement. They proceeded to extend the excavation, and have finally discovered the remains of six buildings.


Certainly seems legit, as Viking settlers were already documented to have settled in the general area around that period.
