In this episode, we talk about Eric Thorvaldsson and Leif Erickson. Better known as Eric the Red, this remarkable man was a Norse explorer, who, according to the medieval sagas of Iceland and Greenland, was the founder of the first settlement of Greenland. His son, Leif Erickson, took after his father, and sailed westward, all the way to North America, to the land he named Vinland, which is today interpreted as being coastal Nova Scotia in Canada.


This week, we tell their tales. These are their stories, as written down in the Icelandic saga. It is recounted by Jennie Hall in her book “The Viking Tales”. Details below:
