An interesting part of the heritage of this area.had no idea we had a settlement characterizing the visits and lives of the Norsemen who came here to discover this area and set up a temporary site in which to base themselves to discover further afield. They also encountered the native population while living there - and seemed to accommodate each other. The artefacts were interesting as it gave us another dimension into their lives at that time -
Visitor centre was well laid out with many interesting exhibits as well as the film to explain some of the other facets that they faced during their short time here.
I do agree it is a L-O-N-G way to go to see this - but this was on our way to St. Anthony's, as well as we saw quite a few icebergs along our way on that side of the coastline.
