Paper given at the 46th International Congress on Medieval Studies (2011)

Arnott’s paper dealt with the public’s perceptions of the Vikings/Norse and their settlement in North America, using both her experience as a worker at the L’Anse aux Meadows site in Newfoundland, and research into the vast literature about this topic.
