The traces of the Vikings are easy to find. We stop at many well-preserved stone ruins from farms, stables and storehouses. After a couple of hundred metres we reach the reconstruction of Tjodhilde’s Church, which was the first Christian church to be built on the American continent.
Tjodhilde was Erik the Red’s wife, and she converted her warlike husband to Christianity. Adjacent to the church is the reconstruction of Erik the Red’s longhouse, and obviously we take the chance to go in and look. We sit down on reindeer hide and wonder what Tjodhilde put in the cooking kettle: Mutton, seal meat, or perhaps both?
