In prehistoric times, Greenland was home to several successive Paleo-Eskimo cultures known today primarily through archaeological finds.
The earliest entry of the Paleo-Eskimo into Greenland is thought to have occurred about 2500 BC.
However, in a referendum in 1982, a majority of the population voted for Greenland to withdraw from the EEC, which was effected in 1985.
Greenland contains the world's largest and most northernly national park, Northeast Greenland National Park (Kalaallit Nunaanni nuna eqqissisimatitaq).
Towns, including Deltaterrasserne, started to appear. Around 800 BC, the Saqqaq culture disappeared and the Early Dorset culture emerged in western Greenland and the Independence II culture in northern Greenland.
The Dorset culture was the first culture to extend throughout the Greenlandic coastal areas, both on the west and east coasts.
In the early 18th century, Scandinavian explorers reached Greenland again.
Established in 1974 and expanded to its present size in 1988, it protects 972,001 square kilometres (375,292 sq mi) of the interior and northeastern coast of Greenland and is bigger than all but twenty-nine countries in the world.
Greenland is divided into four municipalities – Sermersooq, Kujalleq, Qaasuitsup, and Qeqqata.
Along with his extended family and his thralls (i.e.
slaves or serfs), he set out in ships to explore an icy land known to lie to the northwest.
It also retains control of monetary policy, providing an initial annual subsidy of DKK 3.4 billion, which is planned to diminish gradually over time.
