The whole history of farming in the Arctic started right there and many of the places where the Norse settled are today the exact same places for modern sheep farmers.
The Norse had their episcopal in present days village Igaliku, which they called Gardar. Because Igaliku is in the bottom of the Igaliku fjord and surrounded by beautiful mountains this place usually gets a bit warmer in the summer, which is why it has the Greenlandic name Igaliku – “The place like a pot”.
