Continuing on with where we left off yesterday, the Norse presence in North America, however temporary, shows itself in archaeological sites of Inuit places, where Norse materials were found among Inuit materials. Some are displayed here.
Archaeological evidence left behind at L'Anse aux Meadows, a national historic site and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, include wood chips and metal fragments.
While the Norse would depart from these lands, centuries later others would come seeking out new routes to the Orient. Others would be seeking fishing opportunities and would find them in the New World.
Two very different first impressions are copied in text: what Europeans looked like to the Indigenous peoples, and what the Indigenous looked like to the Europeans.
To close out today, this is a model of the San Juan, a galleon that sank in Red Bay in the 1500s.
