The reading material thinks that the silver coin was not taken by Norse, the European explorer, it is just a historical fake, and then give three different opinion. First of all, the passage said that the distance between the Maine site and the Norse settlements in Canada is more than a thousand kilometers, so it is impossible for Norse to have a real connection with the American settlements. However, the lecturer hold an opposite agreement which is about American prefer to travel a long trip to obtain the subject which they want, therefore, it is also convenience that the coin would be acquired by their long traveling. Secondly, the author asserts that they are no more available coins have been found at the Canadian sites in which Norse live, thus it means that Norse have never bring silver coins for American settlements. On the contrary, the professor refutes the opinion that just proposed in passage. He asserts that it could be possible when Norse wanted to back to Europe and he packed up all coin return to Europe. So, in that case, there could have no more coin in America. Lastly, the reading material considers that the silver coins cannot influent in America, so Norse recognized that native Americans did not know silver coins as money.
