Photo: Viking History

Women interpreters dressed in Viking costumes gather in a replica of an old viking hut with earthen floors to depict the history of vikings. This room was where woman gathered for sewing, weaving, and spinning as well as for socializing.

It is estimated that the Viking age in Newfoundland was approximately 1000 years ago when Leif Ericson attempted to establish a Norse village and trading port site in what is now known as L'Anse-aux-Meadows.

Today all that remains of this era are a few building foundations and artifacts. Across the road, the Norstead Viking Site is a replica of a viking village and port of trade which features replicas of buildings, a viking ship and costumed interpreters which bring the site to life by demonstrating and explaining the history of life as a viking in L'Anse-aux-Meadows.

Norstead Viking Site, L'Anse-aux Meadows, Viking Trail, Northern Peninsula, Newfoundland, Canada.
