you have interesting information, but a near criminal abuse of the exclamation point.
I am not knocking what you say. I am encouraging you to hone the format used to deliver your information. It will only aid your credibility....because what you have to say is interesting.
Vinland was the name given to an area of North America by Norse Vikings, discovered by Norseman Leif Eirikson, reputedly the first European to see the New World. Archaeology has given support to the long-held theory that old Norse sagas show Vikings reached North America c. 1000, approximately five centuries prior to the voyages of Christopher Columbus in 1492. In 1960 archaeological evidence of the only known Norse settlement in North America (outside Greenland) was found at L'Anse aux Meadows on the northern tip of the island of Newfoundland. This proved conclusively the Vikings' pre-Columbian discovery of North America. Recent archaeological studies suggest that this site is not the Vinland of the Norse accounts in its entirety but was the entrance to a larger region called Vinland by the Norse. Before the archaeologists made their discoveries, Vinland was the subject of many stories, legends and fantasies which date to about 1300 AD. The legends have been analyzed to explore how medieval people conceptualized their world.

The mention of this land indicates it was in the arctic circle since they talk about the sun always shining there, we know the only place there is continuous sunlight for six months of the year is the arctic circle. This resulted in myths that the people in those lands never sleep or dream. Though it was in the extreme north it was said to be a fertile land, apple trees grew there according to Celtic myths, just like Avalon.
The Oak tree is not mentioned as a sacred tree amongst Irish druids, their sacred tree was the rowan or hazel tree.

One major problem with the "Celtic" part of this argument, there were no "Celtic" peoples till around the 6th century BCE. That set of remains is also too old to even be Proto Indo-European (an language just like the various celtic ones are, as there are no "Celtic genes", so its hard to tell where the "caucasian" body came from. Oh and "red headed giants"? Red hair is not exclusive to the Irish (a sub group of the Celts), the Scots (a sub group of the Gaels), or for the guy wanting Vikings, no not them either, and Viking is not an ethnic group, its a profession in an ethnic group.
