Leif Erikson Day


photo of a viking shipOctober 9th is Leif Erikson Day.

What has that got to do with surveying? Ummmm……. Leif Erikson was a surveyor?

Actually, no. Leif was not a surveyor. In fact he made no maps of his journey.

Leif landed in several places along the coast of Newfoundland (which he called Vinland), around the year of 1002.

Congress declared October 9th as Leif Erikson Day in the year of 1964.
