L'Anse aux Meadows

A UNESCO World Heritage Site: the first authenticated European presence in North America 1000 A.D.

Artifacts of Norse origin included a soapstone spindle whorl, bronze ring-headed pin and iron rivets. Relax in the sod hut of the Viking chief, experience the life of a Viking through stories and demonstrations by costumed re-enactors.
