Reconstructed Viking dwelling from the archaeological site of L'Anse aux Meadows, a Viking settlement in Newfoundland, North America, which was built and occupied around 1000 CE. It could house up to 70-90 people who would use the site while on expeditions lasting a few years. L'Anse aux Meadows likely functioned as a sort of gateway from which Norse work crews undertook trips to other areas such as the Gulf of St Lawrence, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Labrador, and Baffin Island, where they gathered resources to bring back home to Greenland and beyond.
