Our World Heritage: By the end of the Viking Age, the residents of Ångermanland had built large farms on the High Coast. Several buried silver treasures have later been found on the area. Iron Age people also continued to hunt seals and just seal hunters were probably also the first people visiting the Kvarken Archipelago. Viking-era jewellery has also been found in the Kvarken Archipelago. 

Other World Heritages: Vikings were the first Europeans in the North America. In 1100s, they set up a village to L’Anse aux Meadows, which nowadays is a World Heritage Site in Newfoundland, Canada.
