Norse people reached Greenland in 985 A.D., settling two main areas known as the Eastern and the Western Settlements. Despite a relatively poor wooded environment, well preserved archaeological collections shows timbers were often used, suggesting Norse people found multiple ways to acquire the wood they needed. The analysis of everyday life containers combining xylology and dendrometry with typology and technology, provides renewed information regarding timber resources management in Norse Greenland. Results show that Norse craftsmen used at least five species from both local and imported sources, which they carefully selected in accordance with the type of container and their needs.

The story of the Greenland Expedition Society resulted in the discovery and recovery of a World War II P-38 fighter that had been buried 265 feet below the Greenland ice cap for 50 years. Three Georgia adventurers and aviators will be guest speakers at the Commemorative Air Force Dixie Wing on Aug. 20 to discuss their remarkable feat over 11 years, beginning in 1981. Georgia aviation legend Pat Epps set forth in 1981 on his first adventure to the Greenland ice cap in search of the Lost Squadron – two WWII Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress bombers and six Lockheed P-38 Lightnings. The squadron, running low on fuel, had been forced to land on the Greenland ice cap July 15, 1942, after hours of flying in bad weather.
