Product Description
The title of first European to reach North America belongs more correctly to the Viking Leif Erikson, than to Christopher Columbus. The son of Erik the Red who settled Greenland, Leif Erikson led several expeditions along the coast of Labrador and Newfoundland.

The Vikings even built houses and spent some winters in North America, as archaeology continues to reveal to us, supporting the stories from the ancient Scandinavian Sagas.

This resource examines the current knowledge for the life and achievements of this Viking explorer.
