Prior to the year 1000, Europeans hadn't yet reached North America, and the farthest feat of sea travel was the Vikings' invasion of Britain. But how, then, to explain the presence of blond-haired people in Maya murals at Chichén Itzá, Mexico? Could Vikings had found their way to the Americas during the height of the Maya empire?
