Pedantically, Vinland is somewhere the Vikings said that they'd landed, beyond Greenland, where it was warm enough for vines to grow (hence the name -- unless we are talking 'Vin the Viking').

Generally nowadays reckoned to be a small area on the Atlantic coast of Canada, where one archaeological team say they have found traces of Viking-age settlement, of a Viking pattern, as opposed to those of the Native Americans.
