    Hello all Figureteers!

    There are claims in the Sagas of Northmen encountering native Americans/Canadians in their settlements at Lanse aux Meadows, New Foundland. This is also somewhat confirmed in local tales that is still around in modern day. Some also claim that the two cultures mingled and the Northmen where absorbed by local tribe.

    Im looking for references how these natives may have looked like during this era. Dress and equipment. Especially for warriors.

    I know that theres a lot of knowledge out there among you. I have been helped so many times before. Perhaps someone can post a picture or two for inspiration or point me to reliable sources.

    Cheers

    Janne it's probably worth copying this to General Figure Talk so it gets as much exposure as possible to the membership.
    I'm really interested in what comes up.
    By the way don't you think it's about time you got your ass over to HvB in Ingolstadt ;)
    Cheers

    I give it a try. I have longed for Ingolstadt for a long time. Hopefully next year, but its also World Expo next year and Im making myself busy with another project.

    Cheers
