  1. Why was the land “worn out “?
    The land to crowded with animals, cows, got and hogs. The season too short to get crops (grass) to grow fast enough or resettle. Trying to feed to many people.

  2. Two more reasons the land was worn out could be that the Norse, when they first arrived in Greenland, cleared the woodlands, not realising that it might take hundreds of years for them to grow back, because of the climate. Once the woodlands were cleared, the land would have silted up in the allies and the topsoil would have been washed away in the uplands, greatly reducing the amount of good agricultural land available. This would have been compounded by the gradually increasing cold weather, shortening the summer growing season. Finally, the Norse practice of digging up the farmland on the edge of their farms for the repair of their turf cottages (called "flogging the outfields,") would have further reduced the amount of available farmland.
