I AM A Viking at L’Anse Aux Meadows World UNESCO Heritage Site
L’Anse Aux Meadows World UNESCO Heritage Site attracts some 30,000 people annually! More than 1,000 years ago, the Vikings were the first Europeans to re-discover North America. They established a settlement and the mounds where their dwellings and outer buildings were placed still remain today.
I had the opportunity to watch a viking make a nail with a new apprentice from Germany! This little chap was quite the helper and was rewarded with the handmade nail for all his efforts as a memento.
L’Anse Aux Meadows World UNESCO Heritage Site is managed by Parks Canada, offering a quality experience. Be sure to visit the newly renovated interpretation centre and find out more about living like a Viking.
