This is the facsimile edition of the original 1934 volume describing the process and findings of the archaeological expedition carried out over three months, from June till September, in 1932 to the old Viking settlement of Brattahlid (<i>Brattahlíð</i> or ‘steep slope’ in Old Norse) in the southwest of Greenland, at the mouth of Eriksfjord about 60 miles from the ocean. The settlement was established by Erik the Red in the 10th century and several ruins from the site remained until well into the 20th century. The 1932 expedition to document and study the site was led by the two authors of this book who here detail their findings in their own words.
