Brattahlíð, often anglicised as Brattahlid, was Erik the Red's estate in the Eastern Settlement Viking colony he established in south-western Greenland towards the end of the 10th century. At Brattahlíð, stood probably the first church in the New World. The New World is one of the names used for the Western Hemisphere, specifically the Americas and sometimes Oceania (Australasia).
A recent reconstruction of this chapel now stands at a distance from the actual site, along with a replica of a Norse longhouse. This church (not Thjodhild's chapel) measured 12.5 by 4.5 m. and had two entrances, with what was evidently a hearth in the middle. Apparently, fire destroyed it.
The church, possibly a 14th-century structure, may have stood on the ruins of an earlier church. The churchyard has tombstones, with a cross cut on one of them. On another stand engraved the runes for "Ingibjørg's Grave". Today, stones clearly mark the church's outline, though people probably placed them there in recent years; visitors can also see the surrounding graveyard.
