The Beardmore Relics

Era: 

  • 1933 - 1968

The ROM purchases several artifacts that had been found in what is now Thunder Bay. They were "found" again in Beardmore and caused much speculation about Norse penetration into North America. Today, you can see the sword with other armour on display. The story is well told at http://nipigonmuseumtheblog.blogspot.ca/2011/08/beardmore-relics-hoax-or-history-part-1.html
