Norse people reached Greenland in 985 A.D., settling two main areas known as the Eastern and the Western Settlements. Despite a relatively poor wooded environment, well preserved archaeological collections shows timbers were often used, suggesting Norse people found multiple ways to acquire the wood they needed. The analysis of everyday life containers combining xylology and dendrometry with typology and technology, provides renewed information regarding timber resources management in Norse Greenland. Results show that Norse craftsmen used at least five species from both local and imported sources, which they carefully selected in accordance with the type of container and their needs.
