Co-sponsored by the Office of the Provost, the Department of Classical Studies and the New Orleans Society of the Archaeological Institute of America

“Vikings: the North Atlantic Saga" explores the little-known story of the dramatic Viking/Norse expansion across the North Atlantic from 850-1000, and their explorations and settlement in Greenland and Northeastern North America. Special emphasis is on fads and fallacies in popular beliefs about "Vikings" in North America as contrasted with new archaeological evidence from Arctic and Subarctic regions where Norse contacts occurred with Native Americans--both Inuit and Indian. Finally, the lecture addresses the likely cases of failure of the western Norse colonies and implications for future human arctic endeavors.
