Picking up where we left off yesterday, here are some of the replica tools found with the body of Nuvumiutaq.
Change would come, however. The first confirmed contact with outsiders in the New World would be a thousand years ago, and the Norse. Archaeology has confirmed that the site at L'Anse aux Meadows in Newfoundland was a Viking settlement, and there are hints of their presence elsewhere along the Atlantic and into the Canadian North. The Museum begins to examine this period in depth here.
Small figures in a display case from the period by Inuit carvers strongly suggest Norse travelers. We'll pick up here again tomorrow.
