Iceland, June 2014, Overseas Adventure Travel (OAT) trip.
Eririksstadir Museum. Me dressed as a Viking, ready to do battle.
Most evidence suggest that Eirik the Red´s son, Leif Ericsson "Leif the Lucky", was born at Eirkisstadir. His family occupied the farmstead until Lief was six years old, at which time they were exiled and went to Greenland. Leif became the first European to set foot in North America, which he named Vinland, in the year 1000.
