The Helluland Archaeology Project
is an ongoing research initiative at the Canadian Museum of
Civilization. Helluland was the name given by the Norse to a
barren land of rocks and glaciers to the west of Greenland, and
likely refers to Baffin Island and adjacent regions of the
eastern Canadian Arctic. The project is aimed at investigating
relationships between the aboriginal peoples and early Europeans
who met in the eastern Arctic in the centuries around A.D.
