Dagens citat

"Vinland is portrayed in a very realistic manner in these two sagas (The Saga of the Greenlanders and The Saga of Eric the Red) as the most southerly land that they reached on those voyages that they most certainly went on in the year 1000."

Gísli Sigurðsson, forskningsprofessor vid Háskóli Íslands, i The Guardian om islänningasagornas Vinland och dess motsvarighet i verkligheten.
