Vikings in North America - Reconstructed Viking Home

Vikings in North America Reconstructed Viking Home at L'Anse aux Meadows on Newfoundland

Scholars working at L'Anse aux Meadows, on Newfoundland, have reconstructed Viking homes and dwellings based on archaeological evidence at the area.  This view, of a reconstructed Viking longhouse, is of Icelandic design.  It incorporates a centralized fireplace (which is how Norse longhouses were heated).  Smoke exits the house through roof vents.
