Both corn/maize and potatoes origionated in America. How and when did they
get to Europe. I believe the Norse ivory-hunters transported it. I would
also like to know just what fruits, vegetables and grains grow in Ireland
or were there in the 10th century. It's for a novel. Anything you can ad
would be appreciated.
