Intrigued by the landscape and the Norse settlement of Greenland, I followed in their footsteps exploring the Eastern Settlement area, the nexus of their presence here. Experiencing that landscape goes hand in hand with discovering traces of their settlements, of a history gone and almost forgotten. The remoteness of Greenland, with its harsh climate and sometimes desolate landscapes, vividly contrasts with the greater significance, centrality and reach of the Vikings in European history. Featuring an essay, “The Norse In Greenland”, from renowned climate scientist, Astrid E.J. Ogilvie.
