Hvalsey 2010

"The Hvalsey ruins, located at the head of the Hvalsey Fjord, are the most extensive and best-preserved Norse ruins in Greenland. The area was first inhabited in the late 10th century and first mentioned around 1390 in Icelandic annals. Itís church; one of the last built during the Norse era, was constructed of granite and lime mortar and is famous for being the last place of reference to the Greenland Norse colony before it vanished. It is recorded that in 1408 a prominent Icelander married a Greenland colonist in a wedding ceremony that lasted over three Sundays with two priests officiating."
