LifeLeif Ericson was the second son of Eric the Red who established the first settlement in Greenland. His family sailed to Southern Greenland about 985 and his father founded settelment along Eriksford in a place called Brattahlid. Later on the story of Hejolfsson inspired Leif and he wanted to explore and see if there were more places than Greenland. Thats when his voyage to a "New World" began.

On his voyage he discovered many places. One was a place he called Helluland ("Land of Flat Stone") which is thought to be on the southern end of Baffin Island in the Caadian Artic. Another place he discovered Markland ("Forest Land") which is founded on the coast of Labrador. The last thing on his voyage he discovered is Vinland ("WineLand" or "PastureLand") which is found in North America in the year 1001.
