History of Medieval Greenland
And associated places, like Iceland and Vinland.

Sources should be listed with each entry.  A complete listing of sources is a the end.  It should be mentioned that, although I did not note it in each case, much of the preliminary work was strongly influenced by Kristen Seaver's history of Greenland, The Frozen Echo (in fact, although it has expanded beyond that, I developed this originally as an exercise in backtracking her work, which for the record, has held up quite well).  If something is listed without a notation, you may assume it can be found in Seaver's work.

I placed this online really as a quick reference source, which is why it's so informal.  Since it has begun to receive more serious attention, I figure I should clean it up a bit.  If this page somehow manages to offend anyone, please let me know, and we can see what can be done about it.
