But, in Viking times, the compass had not yet reached Western Europe from the Orient.
The Vikings drew significant meaning from the look of cloud formations, from changes in winds and wave patterns, from ocean currents and ground swells, from sea fogs, water colors, and temperatures. But, in Viking times, the compass had not yet reached Western Europe from the Orient. As for computing speed, the only way the Vikings might have managed that would have been to toss a chip of wood into the sea and count how long it took to travel the vessel’s length to the stern or by watching bubbles float by.

Perhaps the most legendary of the Vikings, Erik the Red founded a settlement in Greenland that would survive for nearly five centuries. His son Leif burned with the same desire to reach westward beyond their Scandinavian homeland. That hungering took him to the apogee of Norse explorations: America, which Christopher Columbus was not to encounter for another half millennium.
