  • Adventure Story

  • Spanish Ruler


Vikings

  • Some of the earliest sagas were told by Vikings.

  • Vikings lived in modern day Norway, Sweden, and Denmark.

  • A specific story was Greenlander’s Saga.


The Greenlander’s Saga

  • About A.D. 1000, a Viking named Leif Eriksson hired a crew and set sail from Greenland heading west.

  • Looking for a land that “not mountainous, well-timbered, and with small knolls”.

  • Knoll- is a small round hill


The First Europeans To Arrive In North America Were The.

  • Spanish

  • French

  • English

  • Vikings


Where Did They End Up?

  • Leif and his crew ended up in what is today Canada.

  • The sailors went ashore and built houses of mud and grass.

  • They called this new land Vinland.


Cause

  • Leif’s brother Thorvald led a trip to Vinland and came upon what he thought to be three knolls.

  • It was really nine native people sleeping.

  • Thorvald attacked the people killing all but one of them.


Effect

  • The peoples returned later in many boats and attacked the Vikings.

  • Thorvald was wounded and later died.


What Is An Encounter?

  • This meeting with the native people was called an encounter.

  • This encounter with the native peoples ended their trips to Vinland (a.k.a. Canada)


A Long Time

  • 500 years passed before Europeans returned to the Americas.

  • During this time Europeans believed that it was dangerous to travel.


Europeans Feared Giant Sea Monsters Would Hurt Them If they Traveled The Atlantic

  • True

  • False


More Problems For Europeans

  • Square sail ships were slow and could sail only with the wind.

  • No maps…Hard to know were to go.

  • Money from European rulers

  • Nobles spent too much time fighting each other to worry about exploration.

  • Exploration-Searching of the unknown


Cartographers

  • A group of people in Germany paid Martin Behaim (today 75$) to make a new kind of map.

  • The map was in the shape of a ball. This is the first globe ever made.

  • Behaim called it his “Earth apple”.

  • Cartographers- Mapmakers


Problems With The Earth Apple

  • Behaim made the earth much smaller than it really was.

  • It made a trip from Europe to Asia appear to be 3,000 miles. (it takes 10,000 miles)

  • Behaim didn’t know about North and South America.


Another Problem

  • Behaim didn’t know about Australia or Antarctica either.


What’s Going To Happen When The Europeans Run Into..

  • The Chinooks

  • The Hopis

  • The Mandans

  • The Iroquois

  • The Cherokees?
