We felt really comfortable in the Viking house after having been exposed to the cold outside.
I discovered also a Viking helmet. It did not have horns on it. They must have been a later invention by none Vikings.

Preparing delicious flat bread
The Viking women were all busy - either cooking or doing handiwork. Having immigrated to Vineland meant they had to make their own clothing. The two sheep we had seen could certainly not provide all the required wool. Maybe trading with the native people was the solution.
Where did the milk come from? We had not seen any cattle. Also not before we arrived here. I wanted to ask one lady, but she started to tell me her story while Elizabeth chatted with a whole group.
Her husband had left her and she was looking for a replacement.
Naturally all this was faked and story telling is part of the program to entertain visitors and we were the only ones!
However, the hospitality was not faked - it was what we experienced everywhere in Newfoundland-Labrador.

She told me her story when Elizabeth was chatting with some of the others
