Vinland the Good

Vinland the Good. Shows the scope of the Norse voyages to the New World. It offers information on Viking ships and navigation as well as Leif Eriksson.

From the site:

About 1000 years ago a bold Norse explorer reached North America. He was not the first Norseman to do so, but we remember his achievement today because his was the first recorded effort to explore part of the New World. His incredible journey took him to three distinct places. The southernmost of these, he named Vinland the Good because of its mild climate and abundant natural resources.
