Erik the Red Norse Viking Settlements - ROBERT SEPEHR

Erik Thorvaldsson, known as Erik the Red, was a Norwegian Viking, remembered in medieval and Icelandic saga sources as having founded the first Norse settlement in Greenland. His son, Leif Erikson was credited as the first known European to have discovered North America. Studies have found that almost all ivory traded throughout Europe in Medieval times came from Greenland walruses, which became extinct due to over hunting, contributing to the abandonment of Viking the settlements.

The Maritime Archaic is a North American cultural complex along the coast of Newfoundland and surrounding area, with at least three settlement episodes by distinct cultural groups, that began in approximately 7000 BC, also known as the Red Paint People because of the use of red ochre on their elaborate burials.
