The Vinland Phenomenon: Vinland Spots & Stories

11 illustrated short stories

The map shows places in Newfoundland related to Vinland: by archaeological facts, research-based theories of local residents and foreigners alike, the fiction of filmmakers, or my own investigative phantasy. Some of the places I had already identified beforehand, based on literature research or earlier visits to Newfoundland; to others I was directed by people I met during my field studies; others again I found by following promising place names.
