Winter at Eiríksstaðir

The archaeological evidence for the stories of Eirík and Leif isn't specific, but ruins dated to the 10th century AD were excavated here in 1895, 1938, and 1997-2000. The information panel reads, "The tentative conclusion reached by archaeologists is that if Eirikur the Red did really exist, then no other site has a stronger claim to having been his first home."
