Storyboard Text

  • The Life of Erik the Red 
  • I was a Norwegian Viking known for discovering and colonising Greenland. 
  • Halló! Hi! I'm Erik Thorvaldsson, but you can call me Erik the Red for short.
  • My nickname is 'Erik the Red' because of my red hair and beard.
  • When I was ten years old, my family and I moved from Norway to Iceland. 
  • I was born in 950 and lived here, in Rogaland, Western Norway.
  • I married Thjodhild Jörundsdóttir and had four children, one of them being Leif the Lucky.
  • After many years, I decided to go off on my own and start a family.
  • Halló! Hi! I'm Thjodhild Jörundsdóttir, Erik's wife.
  • In 982, I heard of an unexplored land to the west of Iceland, and decided to leave in search of finding the land.
  • I got a knarr (ship) and started sailing west. 
  • I left Iceland with a small crew of explorers and sailed the open ocean.
  • I was unable to reach the coast due to significant amounts of drift ice, so I had to settle around the bottom edge of the land.
