The Viking Settlement at L'Anse aux Meadows

THE VIKING SETTLEMENT (L'Anse aux Meadows, Newfoundland, Canada)

L'Anse aux Meadows is the site of the only authenticated Viking settlement in North America. Settled about 1,000 years ago, it is located in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. It is evidence of voyages like those of Leif Erikson, written down in the Icelandic sagas in the 1200s. It has remains of buildings and some reconstructions.
