What was already an extraordinarily broad reader has in its second edition become even more useful through the inclusion of additional texts illuminating Viking life, notably those depicting childhood and Edition: 2nd Edition. Israelites were in America before Columbus Many of you will have learned as schoolchildren the little rhyme: "In fourteen hundred and ninety two Columbus sailed the ocean blue." The five hundredth anniversary of his voyage in was certainly exploited to emphasise the Hispanic as opposed to the Anglo-Saxon element in American culture and.

    About one hundred years later the descendants of these Iceland settlers set out in search of yet other countries. Thorvald and his son Eirik the Red were the first Norsemen to discover Greenland. Being banished from Iceland, Thorvald sailed westward until he found a new land, where he settled with his men. The history of Greenland is a history of life under extreme Arctic conditions: currently, an ice cap covers about 80 percent of the island, restricting human activity largely to the coasts.

The history of Greenland is a history of life under extreme Arctic conditions: currently, an ice cap covers about 80 percent of the island, restricting human activity largely to the coasts.

The first humans are thought to have arrived in Greenland around BC. Their descendants apparently died out and were succeeded by several other groups migrating from continental North America.
