Holand collected thirteen (13) 14th century artifacts.   Ten of them are shown below.  He found similar artifacts in the museums of Norway.  These artifacts appear to be ignored by Social Scientists, who write textbooks for early American History.
The Halberts might have come from King Magnus' court, 1355.

There has been little written for kids to read about these Norse artifacts.  
Social Scientists, who ignore Holand, state that these 14th century tools were probably carried to America by 19th century immigrants. 
Holand had already written about evidence that made this statement  invalid.  
There are a few modern American communities with higher density of modern Scandinavians, which have not yielded 14th century artifacts. Wausau, Wisconsin is one example.
.Also one of the halberds could not be found in Scandinavia.  How could 19th century immigrants carry a halberd to America, when that Halberd does not exist in Norway museums?
This evidence contributes to the understanding that the Norse were in Wynland of West in the 14th century.  Yet Social Scientists, who do not do their homework, continue to pedal the myth that the poor Scandinavian immigrants, who were lured to America by the railroads, had enough spare luggage room so they could salt the earth of western Minnesota with the best steel tools of the 14th century. 
Then there is the whetstone with the steel core, which Steve Hilgren found near Fish Lake in Minnesota in AD 2009.
So who do you believe. Holand or most social scientists, who teach Early American History?
If your kids, or grandkids, answer that the Norse were first Europeans to come to America, will their SAT scores earn tthem a scholarship?
If you believe in the evidence you see, how would you convince thousands of Social Scientists to show the pictures to the kids?
[Remember most textbook publishers will rewrite textbooks primarily to sell more.  If the teacher rejects a textbook for any reason, publishers will try to remove the reason.]

Archaeologists, who do research on ancient sites, know that if they find a whetstone, they can be positive that Norse were in the neighborhood.
This Whetstone, was found by Steve Hilgren south east of Wynland.
.The whetstone shows that Norse were in western Minnesota.  This artifact is evidence that the Norse skulls found by Thomas E. Lee are valid.

The skulls were carbon dated to AD 1040.

Thus whetstones found in America may indicate Norse settlements in America dating back one thousand years. 
A whetstone, similar to the one Hilgrenn found, was the only artifact found near to the Kensington Rune Stone.

A Whetstone similar to this was found near the Kensington Rune Stone. It had a metal rod inside.

A comparable whetstone has been found in the Museums in Greenland.

The major Copper Haulers route was south, out of the Christian Sea, up the Nelson River and across Lake Winnipeg.

At the south end of Lake Winnipeg the route went three ways. 

One way was to Thunder Bay, north of Lake Superior.
The second way was south, going up the Red River.
The third way was west toward Minot, ND then south to reach the northern bend of the Missouri.
If Norse had followed the Copper Route into North America, there should have been whetstones found along the routes.

Were there any whetstones found in the Dakotas?
The answer is, “None that we know about.”  
But South Dakota does have two Whetstone waterways.

The overview shows where they are.  The Whetstone River near Big Stone Lake (north east corner).
The Big Stone Lake area would have been a place where Norse may have lived for extended periods.  It is a site with woods, water, and a large body of water near-by.

The Whetstone Creek near Geddes, SD, has similar terrain adjacent to a major water source.
Both Whetstone areas may have been the location of Norse people. 

From this location Norse people may  have “discreetly slipped away” and populated eastern North America during the two hundred years before the Little Ice Age.

Compare the 200 year span to the 240 years the United States has existed.  There was adequate time for the Norse to populate eastern Norse America.  The evidence shows that they did.

When “No one turned back,” the LENAPE may have known their relatives were living in better conditions in areas to the west.
