Peggy is off to a Viking site in North America where she unearths the remains of a brave young warrior.
It's a dream come true for Peggy Henderson when her friend, Dr. Edwina McKay, lets her tag along to the Viking settlement at L'Anse aux Meadows National Park in Newfoundland, where Dr. McKay will be teaching archaeology field school for the summer. Peggy already knows a lot about archaeology—having been on three previous excavations—but does she need to brag about it so much? After alienating herself from the other students with her know-it-all attitude, Peggy accidentally discovers a Viking burial cairn. The students and archaeologists are ecstatic. But when it comes time to excavate, she's banned from participating in the dig. Will Peggy's trip to Newfoundland end just as badly as the Vikings' did? She's afraid it will—that is until she learns an unexpected lesson from a Viking warrior.
