L’Anse aux Meadows
We were very interested to visit and see the history of the VIKINGS. A little research in advance was a good idea. The site is very isolated on the edge of the ocean, but there’s a beautiful and easy way to maneuver walking on the boardwalk around the whole site. First you walk through the (covered) site of the original “dig”, then on to visit the 4 buildings that were reconstructed following the original plans. Parks Canada staff in period costume explain what you’re seeing and how the buildings were used by the Vikings. Very very interesting and a real step back in time.
You go away smelling like wood smoke–just like the Vikings. In spring we could have seen icebergs.
The recreated Viking huts where people are dressed in old Norse clothing. People telling stories and a woman demonstrating finger knitting
A feel a bit sad seeing the Seal Skin hanging on the shed.
