The Norstead Viking Site, which is a Viking Port of Trade, a living museum in L'Anse aux Meadows along the Viking Trail on the Great Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland, Canada. At this museum visitors can get a real glimpse of what life was like at at Viking port of trade when it was fully operational and functional. People dressed up as Viking figures show visitors different skills and ways of life many centuries ago.
Norstead Viking Site recreates as best as we know how today, how the Vikings may have lived during what was known as the Viking era, from 790 to 1066 AD. The attraction contains a full-sized Viking ship, a chieftain's hall, a church, and a workshop.
Living history museums such as Norstead are some of the best ways to learn about what life was like for the people that came before us, and how they may have lived their lives that have influenced the way that we now live our lives today. A museum like Norstead makes history easier to understand and relate to and allows words on a page to jump up and become living again. This is a very popular tourist attraction in Newfoundland and really gives a glimpse into daily Viking life.
