Herjolfsnes, Greenland 360 Panorama

Herjolfsnes, Greenland

The settlement at Herjolfsnes was founded c. 985 by emigrants from Iceland, under the leadership of Erik the Red. The settlement was named for Herjolf Baardsen who took the area of land for himself thus forming Herjolfsnes, which became a major settlement and trade port with Europe. The settlement lasted approximately 500 years. A dig at the church site in 1921 revealed a large graveyard.
