Settlement

Viking settlers built new homes in Scotland, Ireland, eastern England and northern France. In AD 870, they reached Iceland. From there, they sailed further west to Greenland in AD 985. Archaeologists have also found the remains of a Viking settlement in Newfoundland. Viking merchants made long journeys to trade with people from many different lands. They arrived up to Constantinople.
