The Viking Ship, Paperback / softback Book

The Viking Ship Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


The Viking ship is one of the most iconic images of the Viking Age.

As well as including well-known vessels such as the spectacular ship-burials from Gokstad and Oseberg in southern Norway, Viking Ships introduces the newly-conserved Roskilde 6 ship from Denmark.

Measuring at over 37 metres, this is the longest Viking ship ever discovered and will form the core of the touring exhibition Vikings: life and legend.

The Vikings used their shipbuilding skills to command the sea; their famous ships permitted the exploration, colonization and the raids for which they are best known.

This book will explore the evolution of their sea-going vessels and celebrate this outstanding feature of the Viking Age.
