Vikings


The Viking ship museum contains three Viking vessels, two of them remarkably well-preserved.

They sailed in the ninth century, and were eventually used as tombs and buried -- human remains and grave goods were found with the ships.

The Oseberg ship (left) in particular is remarkably beautiful; it's amazing that these detailed carvings have survived for more than a thousand years.
