On September 20th, Richie Williams (WHFC) presented an invited lecture on "Iceland: Magical Land of Ice and Fire" to the Connecticut Academy of Arts and Sciences at the Kline Geology Laboratory, Yale University in New Haven, CT. The lecture was part of Iceland's Millennium Celebration and the program associated with the 4-day visit of the Islendingur to New Haven during its 3-month voyage from Reykjavik, Iceland, to Greenland, eastern Canada, New England, and New York. The Islendingur is a replica of the Gokstad, a Viking ship exhumed from a burial site in Norway and on display, with another burial ship, the Oseburg, in the Viking Ship Museum in Oslo, Norway. Iceland's Millennium Celebration honors the Norse discovery of North America in ca. A.D. 1000, the ephemeral settlement at L'Anse aux Meadows, northern Newfoundland, and the conversion of Icelanders to Christianity at the annual meeting of the Althing at Thingvellir, Iceland, in A.D. 1000.
