        Explorers: Vikings | Google Earth Voyager Stories

        Around the year 1000, five hundred years before Christopher Columbus crossed the Atlantic, Eric the Red and his son Leif Ericson founded settlements in Greenland and North America. Historians now recognize them as two of the greatest explorers of all time, and consider Leif Ericson to be the first European to reach the New World. Retrace the expedition that changed our understanding of the continent in this interactive Google Earth Voyager story.

        Learn more about the lives and journeys of some of history's greatest explorers with our PBS World Explorers collection.
