The Viking Voyage To America - History Documentary

Erik the Red: Bold Scandinavian Explorer

From there they explored the west and north for two years, bestowing place-names everywhere a form of establishing personal control. He named the country Greenland in the belief that a good name would attract settlers. Erik returned to Iceland in or His descriptions of the new territory persuaded many people to follow him to found a new colony in Greenland. Initially there were to settlers in the colony, which never grew to more than 2, to 3, inhabitants.

The Early Life of Erik the Red

Leif Erikson discovers America // 999 AD // The Saga of Erik the Red

As a child, Erik the Red left his native Norway for western Iceland with his father. When Erik was exiled from Iceland circa , he decided to explore the land to the west Greenland. He sailed in but was unable to approach the coast because of drift ice. Erik returned to Iceland in and formed a colony. One of Erik the Red's four children was Leif Eriksson.

Thanks to their superior shipbuilding skills, the Viking Age from the late 8th to the late 11th century saw Scandinavians expanding their military, trade, and cultural presence into the Mediterranean, Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia. As a result, the Vikings left an indelible imprint on early medieval history, and in turn brought outside cultural influences back to their native lands. Few Vikings are more well-known today—over 1, years after his death—than Erik the Red. As referenced in the ancient Icelandic sagas about his adventures, Erik the Red was famous for his fiery temper. If history is any indication, he may very well have inherited that trait from his father. There they joined an established colony of Vikings who had fled Norway due to overcrowding and the iron-fisted rule of King Harald Fairhair a. Harald I, the first king of Norway.
