I actually didn't notice that. I think they're just being really cautious before jumping to conclusions.
The archaeologist lady is pretty cool. I've seen a documentary about her discoveries in Egypt with this new satellite technology. So it's neat that they're using it over this side of the ocean now.

It is a viking period site, there is evidence of iron ore processing, as well as turf construction, not a settlement, but still exciting.
