Westward Viking - Dr Birgitta Wallace

"The Historic Sites Association of Newfoundland and Labrador is very pleased to announce the recent publication of Westward Vikings The Saga of L'Anse aux Meadows, by Birgitta Linderoth Wallace. The book was edited by Shannon Lewis Simpson, and the design was by Vis a Vis Graphics. This publication is 128 pages long, with an extensive bibliography, and full colour throughout. It is designed to give the general public and visitors to L'Anse aux Meadows a background on the site and its position in the Norse/Viking settlement of the North Atlantic in an accessible manner. The book contains many photographs and pictures, and has a soft cover."

The official launch date for Dr Wallace's latest book is November 23 (at St John's NFLD). At present she is working on another book on the same topic, but this a more academic treatment. She is also working on the "Where Is Vinland?" segment of the GREAT UNSOLVED MYSTERIES IN CANADIAN HISTORY web site.

Birgitta is an old friend and mentor. She is a close advisor for the Norse Encampment living history program at L'Anse aux Meadows.
