    L'Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site L'Anse aux Meadows National Historical Site Newfoundland, Canada
    L'Anse aux Meadows mean Jellyfish Cove in French and contains the most significant archaeological site in North America that is located on the northernmost edge of the island of Newfoundland that had been discovered in 1960 as the only known site of a Norse village in Canada and North America, outside of Greenland. This site is the only widely accepted settlement of pre-Columbian trans-oceanic contact that happened in North America and is famous for its possible link with the attempted colony of Vinland that had been established by Leif Ericson during the year 1000, or when the Vikings explored the Americas. These important remains would be discovered in 1960 by the Norwegian explorer, Helge Ingstad, and archaeologists have concluded that the site if of Norse origin since there are many similarities between the characteristics and relics uncovered there and at sites discovered in Greenland and Iceland from about 1000 AD. The meadows is the only known site of Norsemen found in the continent outside of Greenland and represents the farthest known extent of European exploration and settlement of the new world before the voyages of Columbus some half a millennia later, and in 1978, would be named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The archaeological excavations would be conducted by an international team in the 1960s, led by archaeologist, Anne Stine Ingstad, Helge's wife, under the direction of Parks Canada and each time the excavations would be completed in a perspective area, it would be then reburied to protect and conserve the cultural resources that remained. This site would be dated to about 1000 years after Christ appeared, which seems to corroborate the dating of relics discovered and the kinds of structures found. The group discovered eight buildings that they believe were merely sod houses, or sod laid over wooden frames, and eventually identified as either dwellings or workshops, the biggest being 94 by 51 feet and housing numerous rooms. The workshops would be identified as an iron smithy that housed a forge and iron slag, a specialized boat repair area that had worn rivets, a carpentry workshop filled with wooden debris, with many miscellaneous items like a whetstone, stone oil lamp, bone knitting needle, bronze fastening pin and part of a spindle. Since those relics, like spindle and needle were found, the archaeologists believe that women had been included in the trip. Norse sagas are written words of older oral traditions, with two such special Icelandic sagas called the Saga of the Greenlanders and the Saga of Eric the Red, were two such written oral stories about the experiences of Norse Greenlanders that discovered and tried to settle lands that lay west of Greenland, which they would describe as Vinland.

    Basilica of St. John the Baptist Basilica of St. John the Baptist St. John's Newfoundland, Canada
    This basilica is the metropolitan cathedral of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of St. John's Newfoundland, Canada, the mother church and symbol of Roman Catholicism in the country, as well as the biggest construction project and structure found in the province, that started in 1839 and finished in 1855, one of the biggest churches in North America at the time it was completed. It sits on the highest ridge of the city, overlooking the city of St. John's, and faces the narrows that form the entrance to the harbor, constructed in the shape of a Latin cross, in the Lombard Romanesque style of a Roman basilica. The church has many outstanding architectural features that showcase the talents and ingenuity of earlier craftsmen, that used tools by hand, and usually made by hand. It is constructed of grey limestone and white granite that had been quarried in Dublin and Galway, Ireland, with grey sandstone coming from St. John's and Kelly's Island, Conception Bay, Newfoundland. The exterior is 260 feet long and 22o feet wide, with two rising towers and room for some 2500 congregationists. The Altar of Sacrifice, standing at the front to greet you, contains one of the most revered and priceless statuary works in the basilica, called the "Dead Christ", which is a sculpted Carrara marble created by famed Irish sculptor, John Hogan in 1854. It also showcases works by Irish sculptor, John Edward Carew, while the east bell tower houses nine bells that include the biggest, called the St. John bell, that weighs two tons and was bought in 1850, struck by James Murphy of Dublin, that had been the biggest bell ever cast in that country up to that time. The basilica has 28 beautiful stained glass windows that adorn the upper walls and were created by French, English and Irish craftsmen that date to the 1850s and 1870s, with a magnificent pipe organ from world famous Casavant Freres of Quebec, as a memorial to parishioners that died in WWI and WWII. It is the biggest in the province, with 66 stops and 4050 pipes.

    Grenfell House Museum Grenfell House Museum Newfoundland, Canada
    The Grenfell House museum is about the well known medical missionary and philanthropist, Sir Wilfred Grenfell, and his fiancé, Anne Elizabeth MacClanahan, that arrived in Newfoundland in 1892, and began designing this marvelous house, using local carpenters to construct it from 1909 to 1910. Grenfell came to the island as part of a National Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen, to investigate their living conditions that were happening at the Labrador fishery. The shocking state of poverty that these fishermen and their families endured was appalling to the team, and Grenfell would come back the next year with two more doctors and two nurses; thus starting a lifetime of service to the inhabitants of Newfoundland and Labrador, who would eventually gain help from the local governments, and establish the first hospital on the Labrador coast of Battle Harbor. He would return each summer to alleviate the state of these folks' health, and began to consider that much of their problems brought to light their dependence on the local merchants. In 1893, he would help them organize a fishermen's coop at Red Bay, and by 1909, there were eight such coops in operation. Grenfell would continue to return and help the fishermen and their families with anything that would improve their living conditions. He would be knighted in 1927 for his outstanding work, and in 1938, his wife passed on and within two years, he would join her. Their house is now the property of the historical society that was formed to honor his excellent work, and in 1986, the house would be made a Registered Heritage Structure by the Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador.
