L'Anse aux Meadows National Historic site was where Viking Leif Erickson founded the first European settlement in North America 1,000
years ago. Steve took this photo of a Viking building. The site was discovered in 1960 by George Decker, a local fisherman and was uncovered by archaelogist's
Helge and Anne Ingstad. Uncovered were the remains of three dwellings, four workshops, and an iron working smithy and artifacts of Norse origin. Guides entertained them with
demonstrations and stories of life at this location. A mile from the site is Norstead Village, a living history attraction that represents a Viking port of trade.
