      The Vikings did return to North America, but only for trading. He opened up America to Europe, which was the expansionist power at the time. If a ship left the coast of Europe, sailed west.   W. B. Bartlett has worked across the globe in over thirty countries and has spent time in over seventy. He is the author of many history books including titles on the Titanic, Medieval History, King Cnut and the Dam Busters. Vikings, A History of the Northmen is his most recent work and will be published on 15 November, by Amberley : W. B. Bartlett.
