Nancy Marie Brown presents: The Far Traveler – Voyages of a Viking Woman
According to the medieval Icelanding sagas, a Viking woman came to the New World 500 years before Columbus. Gudrid the Far-Traveler, sister-in-law of the explorer Leif Eiriksson, tried to set up a colony on the shores of the Gulf of St. Lawrence around the year 1000. While this story was long thought to be a myth, author Nancy Marie Brown tells how more and more of Gudrid’s story is being proven true by recent archaeological digs in Newfoundland, Greenland, and Iceland.
Tea and Refreshments will be served.
