Description: L’Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site is located at the tip of the Great Northern Peninsula of the island of Newfoundland. In the form of 11th-century Viking settlement remains, the site testifies to the first European presence in North America. The wood-framed peat-turf building remains that were excavated on the site are reminiscent of those found in Norse Greenland and Iceland. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
