On July 11

On this day in ...
... 1980, a plaque was unveiled by which Newfoundland's L'Anse aux Meadows was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. At this windswept location may be found the ruins of a circa-11th C. Viking settlement; it's said to be where Europeans 1st landed in North America, around the year 950. (photo credit)
