This statue is placed outside of the Viking Ship Museum, which you can see in the second picture in yesterday's post.
Helge Ingstad was a Norwegian explorer. His wife Anne Stine was an archaeologist. In 1961 they found remnants of a Viking settlement on Newfoundland and were the first to prove that Islandic/Norwegian vikings had found a way across the Atlantic ocean to North America about 500 years before Christopher Columbus.
The sign says: "They discovered the America of the vikings."
We have run this blog for quite a while, and feel like we need a break to do other things. We will still post photos, but not as often as before. Hopefully you will continue to visit us from time to time. :-)
