Nordic Spirit Symposium
Vikings in America and First Contact

Samuelson Chapel

The Icelandic sagas tell of Norse voyages to Vinland around 1000 CE. A site at the northern tip of Newfoundland was confirmed in the 1960s by archaeologist Anne Stine and her explorer husband Helge Ingstad as a Norse site occupied around that year. Birgitta Wallace later collaborated in and extended the research. This symposium discusses the Newfoundland site, the location of Vinland, the Norse in Greenland, the prehistory/history of eastern Canada from 7000 BCE and the natives the Norse likely encountered.
