Vinland

Ab etwa besiedeln die Wikinger erst Island, dann Grönland. Im Jahr schließlich entdeckt der Kapitän Leif Eriksson eine Küste, die er Vinland nennt. Thorvald Eireffon schifft von Grönlanp nade Vinland. Er untersucht von da aus die Küsten in Süden: von Vinland. Er will auch die Küsten in. In diesem Milieu siedelt Makoto Yukimura sein packendes Wikinger-Epos VINLAND SAGA an. Thorfinn ist der Sohn eines der größten Krieger, den die Wikinger.

The sagas report that a considerable number of Vikings were in parties that visited Vinland. Thorfinn Karlsefni 's crew consisted of or people according to the Saga of Eric the Red , 60 according to the Saga of the Greenlanders.

Still according to the latter, Leif Ericson led a company of 35, Thorvald Eiriksson a company of 30, and Helgi and Finnbogi had 30 crew members.

However, after several years away from Greenland, they chose to turn back to their homes when they realized that they would otherwise face an indefinite conflict with the natives.

This saga references the place-name Vinland in four ways. First, it is identified as the land found by Leif Ericson.

Later, the tale locates Vinland to the south of Markland, with the headland of Kjalarnes at its northern extreme.

However, it also mentions that while at Straumfjord, some of the explorers wished to go in search for Vinland west of Kjalarnes.

When he managed to reach Greenland, making land at Herjolfsness , the site of his father's farm, he remained there for the rest of his father's life and didn't return to Norway until about CE.

There, he told his overlord the Earl, also named Eric about the new land and was criticized for his long delay in reporting this.

On his return to Greenland he retold the story and inspired Leif Ericsson to organize an expedition, which retraced in reverse the route Bjarni had followed, past a land of flat stones Helluland and a land of forests Markland.

After having sailed another two days across open sea, the expedition found a headland with an island just off the shore, with a nearby pool, accessible to ships at high tide, in an area where the sea was shallow with sandbanks.

Here the explorers landed and established a base which can plausibly be matched to L'Anse aux Meadows; except that the winter was described as mild, not freezing.

One day an old family servant, Tyrker , went missing and was found mumbling to himself. On the way home, he spotted another ship aground on the rocks, rescued the crew and later salvaged the cargo.

After the exploration party returnd to base, the Greenlanders decided to return home the following spring. Thorstein, Leif's brother, married Gudrid, widow of the captain rescued by Leif, then lead a third expedition to bring home Thorvald's body, but drifted off course and spent the whole summer sailing the Atlantic.

Spending the winter as a guest at a farm on Greenland with Gudrid, Thorstein died of disease, reviving just long enough to make a prophecy about her future as a Christian.

The next winter, Gudrid married a visiting Icelander named Thorfinn Karlsefni, who agreed to undertake a major expedition to Vinland, taking livestock.

On arrival, they soon found a beached whale which sustained them until spring. In the summer, they were visited by some of the local inhabitants who were scared by the Greenlanders' bull, but happy to trade goods for milk and other products.

In autumn, Gudrid gave birth to a son, Snorri. Shortly after this, one of the local people tried to take a weapon and was killed.

The explorers were then attacked in force, but managed to survive with only minor casualties by retreating to a well-chosen defensive position, a short distance from their base.

One of the local people picked up an iron axe, tried it, and threw it away. Shortly thereafter, a ship captained by two Icelanders arrived in Greenland, and Freydis , daughter of Eric the Red, persuaded them to join her in an expedition to Vinland.

When they arrived to Vinland, the brothers stored their belongings in Leif Eiriksson's houses, which angers Freydis and she banished them. She then visited them during the winter and asked for their ship, claiming that she wanted to go back to Greenland, which the brothers happily agreed to.

However, Freydis went back and told her husband the exact opposite, which lead to the killing, at Freydis' order, of all the Icelanders, including five women, as they lay sleeping.

In the spring, the Greenlanders returned home with a good cargo, but Leif found out the truth about the Icelanders.

That was the last Vinland expedition recorded in the saga. The next spring, Thorstein, Leif's brother, lead an expedition to the new land, but drifted off course and spent the whole summer sailing the Atlantic.

On his return, he met and married Gudrid, one of the survivors from a ship which made land at Herjolfsnes after a difficult voyage from Iceland.

Spending the winter as a guest at a farm on Greenland with Gudrid, Thorstein died of disease, reviving just long enough to make a prophecy about her future as a far-traveling Christian.

The next winter, Gudrid married a visiting Icelander named Thorfinn Karlsefni, who, with his business partner Snorri Thorbrandsson, agreed to undertake a major expedition to the new land, taking livestock with them.

Also contributing ships for this expedition were another pair of visiting Icelanders, Bjarni Grimolfsson and Thorhall Gamlason, and Leif's brother and sister Thorvald and Freydis, with her husband Thorvard.

Sailing past landscapes of flat stones Helluland and forests Markland they rounded a cape where they saw the keel of a boat Kjalarnes , then continued past some extraordinarily long beaches Furthustrandir before they landed and sent out two runners to explore inland.

The winter months were harsh, and food was in short supply. One day an old family servant, Thorhall the Hunter who had not become Christian , went missing and was found mumbling to himself.

Shortly afterwards, a beached whale was found, which Thorhall claimed had been provided in answer to his praise of the pagan gods. The explorers found that eating it made them ill, so they prayed to the Christian God, and shortly afterwards the weather improved.

When spring arrived, Thorhall Gamlason, the Icelander, wanted to sail north around Kjalarnes to seek Vinland, while Thorfinn Karlsefni preferred to sail southward down the east coast.

Thorhall took only nine men, and his vessel is swept out into the ocean by contrary winds; he and his crew never returned. Thorfinn and Snorri, with Freydis plus possibly Bjarni , sailed down the east coast with 40 men or more and established a settlement on the shore of a seaside lake, protected by barrier islands and connected to the open ocean by a river which was navigable by ships only at high tide.

The teller of this saga was uncertain whether the explorers remained here over the next winter said to be very mild or for only a few weeks of summer.

One morning they saw nine hide boats; the local people Skraelings examined the Norse ships and departed in peace. Later a much larger flotilla of boats arrived, and trade commenced Karlsefni forbad the sale of weapons.

One day, the local traders were frightened by the sudden arrival of the Greenlanders' bull, and they stayed away for three weeks. They then attacked in force, but the explorers managed to survive with only minor casualties, by retreating inland to a defensive position, a short distance from their camp.

Pregnancy slowed Freydis down, so she picked up the sword of a fallen companion and brandished it against her bare breast, scaring the attackers into withdrawal.

One of the local people picked up an iron axe, tried using it, but threw it away. The explorers subsequently abandoned the southern camp and sailed back to Straumsfjord, killing five natives they encountered on the way, lying asleep in hide sacks.

Karlsefni, accompanied by Thorvald Eriksson and others, sailed around Kjalarnes and then south, keeping land on their left side, hoping to find Thorhall.

After sailing for a long time, while moored on the south side of a west-flowing river, they were shot at by a one-footed man , and Thorvald died from an arrow-wound.

Once they reached Markland, the men encountered five natives, of whom they kidnapped two boys, baptizing them and teaching them their own language.

On the way home, the ship of Bjarni the Icelander was swept into the Sea of Worms Madkasjo by contrary winds.

The marine worms destroyed the hull, and only those who escaped in the ship's worm-proofed boat survived. This was the last Vinland expedition recorded in the saga.

The oldest commonly acknowledged surviving written record of Vinland appears in Descriptio insularum Aquilonis , by Adam of Bremen , a German Saxon geographer and historian, written in about To write it he visited the Danish king Svend Estridsen , who had knowledge of the northern lands and told him of the "islands" discovered by Norse sailors far out in the Atlantic, of which Vinland was the most remote.

The exact phrasing of this, the first mention of Vinland in known written sources, is as follows: [21].

He also told me that in this part of the Ocean many have discovered an island, which is called Vinland because there are grapevines growing wild, which produce the best of wines.

From trustworthy Danes rather than from fantastic tales, I also have heard that there is an abundance of cereal which is self-sown.

Beyond this island, he King Sven of Denmark says, are no more inhabitable islands in the Ocean. Everything farther out is covered by immense masses of ice and perennial fog.

With his ships he recently investigated the extent of the northern Ocean but finally had to turn back when the extreme limit of the world disappeared in fog before his eyes.

He barely escaped the gaping ravine of the abyss. Adam became confused between Helluland and Halagland , the northernmost part of medieval Norway, where the " midnight sun " is visible.

The earliest map of Vinland was drawn by Sigurd Stefansson, a schoolmaster at Skalholt, Iceland, around , which placed Vinland somewhere that can be Chesapeake Bay, St.

Lawrence, or Cape Cod Bay. In the early 14th Century, a geography encyclopedia called Geographica Universalis was compiled at Malmesbury Abbey in England, which was in turn used as a source for one of the most widely circulated medieval English educational works, Polychronicon by Ranulf Higden , a few years later.

Both these works, with Adam of Bremen as a possible source, were confused about the location of what they called Wintland —the Malmesbury monk had it on the ocean east of Norway, while Higden put it west of Denmark but failed to explain the distance.

Copies of Polychronicon commonly included a world map on which Wintland was marked in the Atlantic Ocean near Iceland, but again much closer to the Scandinavian mainland than in reality.

The name was explained in both texts as referring to the savage inhabitants' ability to tie the wind up in knotted cords, which they sold to sailors who could then undo a knot whenever they needed a good wind.

Neither mentioned grapes, and the Malmesbury work specifically states that little grows there but grass and trees, which reflects the saga descriptions of the area round the main Norse expedition base.

More geographically correct were Icelandic texts from about the same time, which presented a clear picture of the northern countries as experienced by Norse explorers: north of Iceland a vast, barren plain which we now know to be the Polar ice-cap extended from Biarmeland northern Russia east of the White Sea , to Greenland, then further west and south were, in succession, Helluland , Markland and Vinland.

The Icelanders had no knowledge of how far south Vinland extended, and they speculated that it might reach as far as Africa. The "Historia Norwegiae" History of Norway compiled around does not refer directly to Vinland and tries to reconcile information from Greenland with mainland European sources; in this text Greenland's territory extends so that it is "almost touching the African islands, where the waters of ocean flood in".

Icelandic chronicles record another attempt to visit Vinland from Greenland, over a century after the saga voyages.

In , Icelandic bishop Eric Gnupsson , who had been based on Greenland since , "went to seek Vinland". Nothing more is reported of him, and three years later another bishop, Arnald, was sent to Greenland.

No written records, other than inscribed stones, have survived in Greenland, so the next reference to a voyage also comes from Icelandic chronicles.

In , a ship arrived in Iceland, after being blown off course on its way home from Markland to Greenland with a load of timber. The implication is that the Greenlanders had continued to use Markland as a source of timber over several centuries.

The definition of Vinland is somewhat elusive. The study of the early Norse voyages to North America is a field of research characterized by controversy and conflicting, often irreconcilable, opinions and conclusions.

These circumstances result from the fact that details of the voyages exist only in two Icelandic sagas which contradict each other on basic issues and internally are vague and contain nonhistorical passages.

This leads him to conclude that "there is not a Vinland, there are many Vinlands". According to a reply by Matti Kaups in the same journal, [30].

Certainly there is a symbolic Vinland as described and located in the Groenlandinga saga ; what seems to be a variant of this Vinland is narrated in Erik the Red's Saga.

There are, on the other hand, numerous more recent derivative Vinlands, each of which actually is but a suppositional spatial entity.

In geographical terms, Vinland is sometimes used to refer generally to all areas in North America beyond Greenland that were explored by the Norse.

In the sagas, however, Vinland is sometimes indicated to not include the territories of Helluland and Markland , which appear to also be located in North America beyond Greenland.

The Old Norse and Icelandic languages were, and are, very flexible in forming compound words. Sixteenth century Icelanders realized that the "New World" which European geographers were calling "America" was the land described in their Vinland Sagas.

The scales of degrees in the map margins are inaccurate. This effective identification of northern Newfoundland with the northern tip of Vinland was taken up by later Scandinavian scholars such as bishop Hans Resen.

Although it is generally agreed, based on the saga descriptions, that Helluland includes Baffin Island , and Markland represents at least the southern part of the modern Labrador, there has been considerable controversy over the location of the actual Norse landings and settlement.

Comparison of the sagas, as summarized below, shows that they give similar descriptions and names to different places. One of the few reasonably consistent pieces of information is that exploration voyages from the main base sailed down both the east and west coasts of the land; this was one of the factors which helped archaeologists locate the site at L'Anse aux Meadows , at the tip of Newfoundland's long northern peninsula.

Charting the overlap of the limits of wild vine and wild salmon habitats, Wahlgren indicates a location near New York. Other clues appear to place the main settlement farther south, such as the mention of a winter with no snow and the reports in both sagas of grapes being found.

A very specific indication in the Greenlanders' Saga of the latitude of the base has also been subject to misinterpretation.

This passage states that in the shortest days of midwinter, the sun was still above the horizon at "dagmal" and "eykt", two specific times in the Norse day.

Carl Christian Rafn , in the first detailed study of the Norse exploration of the New World, "Antiquitates Americanae" , interpreted these times as equivalent to am and 4.

However, an Icelandic law text gives a very specific explanation of "eykt", with reference to Norse navigation techniques.

The eight major divisions of the compass were subdivided into three hours each, to make a total of 24, and "eykt" was the end of the second hour of the south-west division, which in modern terms would be pm.

Newfoundland marine insurance agent and historian William A. It is most likely this was the main settlement of the sagas, a "gateway" for the Norse Greenlanders to the rich lands farther south.

Many wooden objects were found at L'Anse aux Meadows, and radiocarbon dating confirms the site's occupation as being confined to a short period around CE.

In addition, a number of small pieces of jasper , known to have been used in the Norse world as fire-strikers , were found in and around the different buildings.

When these were analyzed and compared with samples from jasper sources around the north Atlantic area, it was found that two buildings contained only Icelandic jasper pieces, while another contained some from Greenland; also a single piece from the east coast of Newfoundland was found.

These finds appear to confirm the saga claim that some of the Vinland exploration ships came from Iceland and that they ventured down the east coast of the new land.

Based on such interpretations and archaeological evidence, it is now generally accepted that L'Anse aux Meadows was the main base of the Norse explorers, [36] but the southernmost limit of the Norse exploration remains a subject of intense speculation.

L'Anse Aux Meadows was a small and short-lived encampment; [7] perhaps it was primarily used as timber-gathering forays and boat repair, rather than permanent settlements like Greenland.

The main resources that the people of Vinland relied on were wheat, berries, wine and fish. However, the wheat in the Vinlandic context is sandwort and not traditional wheat, and the grapes mentioned are native North American grapes, because the European grape vitis vinifera and wheat triticum existing in the New World before the Viking arrival in the tenth century is highly unlikely.

Point Rosee , on the southwest coast of Newfoundland, was thought to be the location of a possible Norse settlement.

The site was discovered through satellite imagery in by Sarah Parcak. John's, Newfoundland, [49] Sarah Parcak and Gregory "Greg" Mumford wrote that they "found no evidence whatsoever for either a Norse presence or human activity at Point Rosee prior to the historic period" [50] and that "None of the team members, including the Norse specialists, deemed this area as having any traces of human activity.
