About This Project
Where did the Vikings explore in North America? Where did they first make contact with the peoples of the New World? Around AD 1000 Vikings from Iceland and Greenland established an exploration base at L'Anse aux Meadows, Newfoundland. With your help, we'll examine how far they traveled from that base and how well they knew the region's resources by analyzing trace elements in the tools they used to make fires at this farthest west Viking site.
