Gudridur, Snaefellsjoekull  (or Guðríður) was born around 980AD in Iceland, and from the great Icelandic sagas. From Iceland she was to travel over a far greater distance than most other people of the age. Gudridur was taken by her father to the colony on Greenland founded by Erik the Red, and married Thorstein, Erik’s son. Together with her husband she joined the expedition west of Greenland to a place called Vinland, now known to be North America, to recover Thorstein’s brother’s body.
