The archaeological narrative for Greenland in the 1st Millennium is essentially one long hiatus [aka lacuna aka void] that is only disturbed by the error bars of radiocarbon dating.
The mainstream historical narrative only begins after the Heinsohn Horizon with the arrival of Erik the Red in 986 AD.
From 986, Greenland’s west coast was settled by Icelanders and Norwegians, through a contingent of 14 boats led by Erik the Red.

The Great Greenland Gap in the 1st Millennium was simply buried under the “One Thousand Centuries” of snow and ice that was unleashed by Willi Dansgaard in 1969.
A correlation of time with depth has been evaluated for the Camp Century, Greenland, 1390 meter deep ice core.
Oxygen isotopes in approximately 1600 samples throughout the core have been analyzed.
Long-term variations in the isotopic composition of the ice reflect the climatic changes during the past nearly 100,000 years.
Climatic oscillations with periods of 120, 940, and 13,000 years are observed.
One Thousand Centuries of Climatic Record from Camp Century on the Greenland Ice Sheet

Willi Dansgaard’s Great Greenland Snow Job is solely based upon a hypothetical Flow Model [for ice sheets that suddenly appear fully formed] that mathematically manages to squeeze 80,000 imaginary years worth of snow down into the final 100 metres of the 1,360 metres long Camp Century Ice Core i.e. 80% of the years into 7.35% of the ice.

An effort to deceive, overwhelm, or persuade with insincere talk, especially flattery.
Digitising Willi Dansgaard’s Holocene Hockey Stick successfully recreates the graph.
But the digitising process failed to capture the quasi-exponential Years BP axis because it was manipulated to emphasise the imaginary Dansgaard–Oeschger Events.
Dansgaard–Oeschger events (often abbreviated D–O events) are rapid climate fluctuations that occurred 25 times during the last glacial period.
Some scientists (see below) claim that the events occur quasi-periodically with a recurrence time being a multiple of 1,470 years, but this is debated.
The comparable climate cyclicity during the Holocene is referred to as Bond events.
The best evidence for Dansgaard–Oeschger events remains in the Greenland ice cores, which only go back to the end of the last interglacial, the Eemian interglacial.
However, the d18O trace from the Camp Century Ice Core can be successfully matched with my trusty digitised Japanese Cedar Isotopic Tree Thermometer by simply working backwards and aligning the graphs around the 1st Millennium Minimum at 654 AD.
It’s breathtaking how almost 99,998.5 years of imaginary snow and ice can be vaporised simply by correctly calibrating the Camp Century Ice Core with my trusty digitised Japanese Cedar Isotopic Tree Thermometer.
The initial deluge of rain and snow associated with the 1st Millennium Minimum [at 654 AD] may explain why the Farm Beneath the Sand [settled centuries before the official arrival of Erik the Red in 986 AD] was found under “1.5m-thick layers of sand and gravel”.
The…“Middle Settlement”… is the smallest and least well known of the three, and no written records of its residents survive, for which reasons it is believed to have been established last (and abandoned first) of the three.
The mainstream eventually stumbled upon the aptly named Farm Beneath the Sand [aka GUS – Gården Under Sandet] in the Western Settlement under “1.5m-thick layers of sand and gravel”.
Furthermore, the calibrated Camp Century Ice Core suggests that the northward advance of the glaciers in Greenland across the silty lake lands of central Greenland [following the 1st Millennium Minimum] continued for nearly 300 years before the domed Greenland Ice Sheet evolved upon its base of silty glacial ice.
