why was the voyage undertaken?
the voyage was taken because Leif wanted to find new land with rich land for the vikings. After Leif Erickson left no viking went back.
Leif had returned to greenland after his first voyage. he grew restless so he decided to to find the land west of what Bjarni had spoken about.
while sailing the wind was fair but it later slowed to a gentle breeze, they sailed for many days and almost ran out of food. they saw some small islands and found they had sailed too far south. the day they landed a storm came in and didnt let them leave for about a month.
evicence of persistence and risk taking
results of exploration
While on the mainland he grew wild grapes in abundance.Columbus 500 year later found this land and labeled it as his own and got credit for founding it.
