                                    The Vinland Mystery
| 29 min

This short documentary depicts the search, discovery and authentication of the only known Norse settlement in North America - Vinland the Good. Mentioned in Icelandic manuscripts and speculated about for over two centuries, Vinland is known as "the place where the wild grapes grow" and was thought to be on the eastern coast between Virginia and Newfoundland. In 1960 a curious group of house mounds was uncovered at l'Anse aux Meadows in northern Newfoundland by Drs. Helge Ingstad and Anne Stine Ingstad of Norway. Added to the United Nations World Heritage List, l'Anse aux Meadows is considered one of the most important archaeological sites in the world.

    This is great, lots of the pix that I figured must exist, but that aren't in Under the Pole Star or Westward to Vinland (recommended reads!). And very nice to see Helge and Anne-Stine speaking. Thanks for posting this!
