Contest #417 L’Anse aux Meadows, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada

Located at the northern tip of the island of Newfoundland in Canada is the site of the best known Viking settlement in North America. It was established around 1000 AD by Vikings going west from Scandanavia, Iceland and Greenland – and about 500 years before Columbus “discovered” North Anerica while he was searching for Asia.

It was determined to be a Viking settlement by two Norwegians in the 1960’s and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
