Having heard from another Viking Greenlander, Bjarni Herjolfsson, that he had sighted land even further west, Leif went to see for himself.
In around he and his crew found themselves sailing somewhere along the coast of North America. They found a glacial, mountainous coast, then a wooded one, and finally a country of fertile pastures that they named Vinland.
Although they resolved to start a new colony there, it was — unlike either Iceland or Greenland — already settled and hostility from native Americans and their own small numbers Greenland at the time probably had about 3, Viking inhabitants meant that it was soon abandoned. They had, though, become the first Europeans to land in and settle in the Americas, almost five centuries before Christopher Columbus. The location of Vinland, despite attempts to work out where it lay from information contained in the sagas, remained elusive.
It was even unclear if the Vikings really had reached North America. Fragments of worked iron many of them nails, probably from a ship , which the native population did not possess the technology to produce, meant that it was soon clear this was a Viking settlement. Although perhaps too small to be the main Vinland colony, it was still astonishing confirmation of what the sagas had said. Quick wit, bravery and action were among the key attributes for a Viking warrior, but to be remembered for great deeds was the most important of all.
