In 1960, the discovery of a Norse settlement in Canada proved that Vikings had settled here in the year 1000 CE, changing what historians previously believed. But did Viking explorers stay in Newfoundland, or did they travel farther south–perhaps all the way to Lake Ontario? Library Director Joe O’Toole will discuss this possibility by presenting a history of Viking culture and the Norse “discovery” of the “New World.” Open to teens and adults. Registration is required.
