The Vikings Explore the North Atlantic
The Vikings started in Scandinavia. There wasn't good farmland. Since there was not a lot of farmland the Vikings raided the Lindisfarne monastery, and villages throughout Ireland and England.
The Vikings took over villages and farmland of England. While looking for other land a Viking named Naddod got pushed of course in his boat by a terrible storm and he saw land in the distance. Later a Viking named Floki returned to that land and spent winter there with his men. News spread that Iceland had good farmland so a large number of Vikings moved there.
Erik safety led 14 ships to Greenland filled with children, woman, and men. Life in Greenland was not what they expected. It was very difficult to grow crops. A Viking named Bjarni was looking for his family and discovered another plot of land. Erik's son went out to explore the discovered land.
Erik's son Leif and his crew sailed west of Greenland and eventually found a place to stop in North America.They spent the whole winter in Vinland. In the spring they loaded the ship with wood, grapes, and plants and sailed back to Greenland.Back at Greenland Leif found out that Erik died. Leifs brother then packed up and went to Vinland. Thorvald and his crew spent two years there. Then the natives showed up and Thorvald's crew attacked them. Thorvald got hit with an arrow and died. Then they all went back to Greenland.
After Thorvald's death Thorfinn and other men and women traveled to Vinland. Thorfinn's wife had a baby and the land had rich soil and good grass to graze livestock. Eventually problems began to arise and the natives became angry at the vikings and attacked the settlement. After the battle the vikings decided to pack up and leave Vinland.
