Newfoundland Trip #8 - Viking Encounter
July 19, 2012. L'Anse aux Meadows.
While the weather was the pits when we were riding, (rain, wind, cold...did I mention rain?), it cleared up enough on our off-bike days to allow us to explore. We were able to see just about everything we wanted to!
This is the scene approaching the entrance to L'Anse aux Meadows National Historic site.
"The reconstructions of three Norse buildings are the focal point of this archaeological site, the earliest known European settlement in the New World. The archaeological remains at the site were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1978. Exhibits highlight the Viking lifestyle, artifacts, and the archaeological discovery of the site."
