The frozen echo: Greenland and the exploration of North America, ca. A.D. 1000-1500 / Kirsten A. Seaver.

Title: The frozen echo: Greenland and the exploration of North America, ca. A.D. 1000-1500 / Kirsten A. Seaver.
Author(s): Seaver, Kirsten A.
Date: 1996.
Publisher: Stanford, CA: Stanford University Press
Abstract: Author aims to clarify many details of trade with settlements on Greenland and life in them, including Christian Church, particularly in 14th and 15th Cents. By analysing maps of period of great explorations and fishing voyages, trading and legal records, archaeological remains and legitimate speculation, author concludes that Greenland settlements may have died out as result of young men's emigration to settle North American coast. They had own competence in local conditions and populations of nations of Europe most likely to try settling were small. Also, emphasizes role of English in exploration of North Atlantic, particularly Bristol.
