  • The Viking explorer Eric the Red-haired leaves Norway, to survey west of Iceland. He finds land and calls it Greenland. Hundreds of land-starved Vikings board longships, and head west for this so-called "Greenland".
  • The de facto ruler of Al-Andalus, al-Mansur, conquers and razes to the ground the city of Zamora, as part of his effort to seize the Christian-dominated north of the Iberian Peninsula.
