L’Anse aux Meadows
Come for the Vikings, stay for a feast. The story of the Vikings is told at the L’Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site. A model illustrates how the site may have looked at the time of the Norse; there are remains of the Norse buildings, and three full-scale replicas of sod huts. Norstead: A Viking Village and Port of Trade was created to place the experience in the hands of visitors. Join costumed interpreters in the dim light of the Viking-style Chieftain’s Hall and listen to mysterious Viking tales. Watch the blacksmith forging iron. Step aboard the full-scale Viking ship Snorri. Use a simple notched stick to measure distance by the stars. Shape clay into pottery. Spin sheep fleece into yarn. Engage in a feast fit for a Viking.
