In this history less, Rich explains one of history’s most enduring mysteries: what happened to the Norse Greenlanders? The Norse community lived on Greenland for over 500 years, and they disappeared without a trace. No one knows what happened to them – did they migrate? Starve? Were they raided and wiped out? We will never know, but Rich gives us a masterful history lesson on this little-known topic.
