Viking museum

Oooooops, here's some pictures from the Viking museum.
They found 5 or 6 of these longboats buried in clay and VERY
well preserved. These were burial boats circa 850-900 AD. They
found the sleds and wagon with them and even clothes were well
preserved in the clay! Notice the inticate carving. Imagine how long
that took with primitive tools!
