In Social Studies we have just begun studying European exploration of North America. Last week we learned about the Vikings. In particular, we learned that Leif Ericsson was likely the first European to set foot on North American soil when he arrived at L'Anse aux Meadows (in what is now Newfoundland) around the year 1000. Below are a couple of videos about the Vikings historic arrival. The second shows the L'Anse aux Meadows site today. It is now run as a historic site open to the public, much like Fort Langley, when people can go to learn more about the Vikings.
