  • Vikings were not spurred to Greenland by warm weather. Dr Astrid Ogilvie, Stefansson Arctic Institute, gave several media interviews in regard to a recent study by Young et al. (2015) which suggested that the Norse settlement of Greenland around AD 985 were advanced, and that they continued in this phase for the entire period that the Norse remained (to ca. 1450) and her comments were quoted in both the Independent and Guardian newspapers (e.g. SEE HERE). Dr Ogilvie’s conclusions in the interviews were that the new study undermined the climate deterministic theory that the Norse went to Greenland during a period of favourable climate in the North Atlantic, and died out when it became colder.
