History teachers take note! Here is one Volume 1 of my favourite resources for teaching Canadian History.

Dr. C. W. Jefferys was one of Canada's foremost historical artists and his three-volume "Picture Gallery of Canadian History" is probably his best-known achievement. His hundreds of carefully researched pictures of artifacts, people, places and episodes from Canadian history provide a "treasure house of information about this country's past."

Vol.1 - Discovery to 1900
Vol.2 - 1763 to 1830
Vol.3 - 1839 to 1900

Their routes and the locality of the places they reached are uncertain, and the attempt to identify them has caused much discussion. The general opinion was that the territory visited by the Vikings was somewhere on the Atlantic coast between Labrador a nd New England. \Vithin the last few years, the discovery of some Viking weapons in Northern Ontario has led archaeologists to consider the probability that some of them reached Hudson Bay through Hudson Strait and thence journeyed inland to the south and west.
