Long before Columbus, northern Europe had a tradition of mythic lands to the west. This film explores the correlation between the latest archaeological discoveries in the Far North and the descriptions of Viking explorations and settlements detailed in the Icelandic sagas. What emerges is a fascinating story of Norse settlements in Newfoundland and elsewhere along the North Atlantic coast, and of trading and occasional battles with Eskimo peoples migrating east in this period of global warming.
