Legends and Paranormal Activity
On the anniversary of the landings which has been calculated as June 23 (20 days after the Vikings left Iceland) the site becomes paranormally active. At 2 am a longboat can be seen in the ocean and a viking horn can be heard. Sometime between 4 – 5 am screams are heard in the forest to the rear of the site; these are thought to be natives. The site then goes quiet again until the anniversary comes around again. This phenomena has been witnessed and described since the 16th century.
