An example is one about Lief Erikson where he travels to modern day Canada. This viking saga describes the discovery and settlement of Canada where the vikings had stayed for a little while. The saga clearly shows the events of the journey to Canada and the way they had found the land. The viking settlement described is considered to be the earliest european to get to the new world and settle. With this saga it helps to prove that the vikings were the earliest to get to North and South America. This is a primary source because it is a story made by the Vikings describing viking events and history.
