Thomas McGovern for Smithsonian Magazine

February 15, 2017 10:10 am

Thomas McGovern is an archaeologist who has spent the last 40 years studying the history of the Vikings and their short time in Greenland. Last month Smithsonian Magazine sent me to photograph him at his home in outside of Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Check out the story in the March issue.

Many thanks to Photo Editor Brendan McCabe.

These artifacts are mostly bone and bits of wood charcoal from the midden (garbage heap) that his team excavated back in 2006.
