Viking Ship Museum, Roskilde, Zealand, Denmark, Europe
The Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde is Denmark's national museum for ships, seafaring and boatbuilding in the prehistoric and medieval period. The main focus of the museum is a permanent exhibition of five original Viking ships excavated nearby in 1962. The Viking Ship Museum also conducts research and educates researchers in the fields of maritime history, marine archaeology and experimental archaeology. Various academic conferences are held here and there is a research library in association with the museum. Around the year 1070, five Viking ships were deliberately sunk at Skuldelev in Roskilde Fjord in order to block the most important fairway and to protect Roskilde from an enemy attack from the sea. These ships, later known as the Skuldelev ships, were excavated in 1962. They turned out to be five different types of ships ranging from cargo ships to ships of war.
The Viking Ship Museum overlooking the inlet of Roskilde Fjord was built in 1969 with the main purpose of exhibiting the five newly discovered Skuldelev ships. In the late 1990s, excavations for the shipyard expansion of the museum uncovered a further 9 ships from the Viking Age and early medieval period. It is the largest discovery of prehistoric ships in Northern Europe and includes the longest Viking warship ever found; the Roskilde 6 at 36 metres. The excavations are not yet completed. The original Skuldelev Viking ships are the main focus of the museum, but a small exhibition about the Roskilde ships and various temporary exhibitions with a broader scope can also be experienced here. The Viking Ship Museum has a long tradition of Viking ship reconstructions and boat building and also collects boats of interest from all over Scandinavia. The boat collection at the museum now comprise more than 40 vessels and the associated ship building yard is constantly building new ships by original methods as part an experimental archaeology learning process. It is possible to follow or engage in the ship building process here. The shipyard is located on a small isle known as Museumsøen (Museum Island), connected to the main museum exhibition buildings by a drawbridge. Every summer, a handful of boats are launched for extended seavoyages to accumulate more knowledge about the seafaring techniques and conditions of the Vikings.

Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde, Denmark - Viking Ship Museum - Photos & Reviews .The ship Rom discovered became known as the Oseberg Ship, and it is the centerpiece of the Viking Museum in Oslo. The Oseberg Ship is 21.5 meter long oak “karv” type ship, a slightly smaller than average, early ship style. The bow and stern are richly decorated with carvings of interlocking beasts.Almost as exciting as the discovery of such a complete and beautiful ship, the grave goods contained some very mysterious items. The so-called “Buddha Bucket” is the most famous mystery. Decorating the base of the handles on this otherwise unremarkable bucket, two small brass figures seated in the Lotus position look like nothing more than tiny, completely out of place, Buddhas. Although it is possible that Vikings did have contact with Asian cultures (and in fact another Buddha figure is on display at the Swedish Museum of National Antiquities in Stockholm) researchers consider it more likely a result of coincidental hodge-podge of styles from their many Northern European contacts.In 1904, at the time of the excavation of this remarkable find, there was no room to house it in the existing historical museum. In fact, two other ships, the Tune Ship and the Gokstad Ship, were also in need of a home. The first designs for the Viking Museum were drawn up in 1914, but it was not until 1957 that it finally opened its doors.The Oseberg, Tune, and Gokstad Ships are all now housed inside the museum.All of the ships were built between the years 800 and 900, the height of the Viking Age. The first ship discovered was the Tune Ship in 1867, but it is not in as good condition as the Oseberg or the Gokstad. The Gokstad Ship was discovered in 1880 in a burial mound along with two male skeletons, and is displayed with a reconstructed burial chamber. The Gokstad has also had new life in the form of replicas, one of which successfully crossed the Atlantic Ocean in 1893 to be exhibited at the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago.

Roskilde 6 Assembled
Watch as five specialists from the National Museum of Denmark assemble and install the Roskilde 6, the world’s longest Viking ship ever discovered. Of the original 122-foot ship, only 25% of the wood remains, but the frame of the ship is recreated using a steel structure that, with the original wood, weighs over 2.8 tons. The assembly took the crew two weeks. The Roskilde 6 makes its North American debut as part of the Vikings: Beyond the Legend exhibit, open till April 2017! #VikingsSailCincy cincymuseum.org/content/now-open-vikings-beyond-legend

Viking ship, Ellingåskibet, Bangsbo Museum & Arkiv, Frederikshavn, North Denmark, Denmark, Europe
Bangsbo Museum resides on a manor whose oldest buildings date back to the 16th century and are beautifully surrounded by forest, river valley and hills, only two kilometres from the centre of Frederikshavn. In the manor house, which is surrounded by a moat, visitors can experience the town history, textile exhibits and a one of a kind collection of jewellery made of human hair. In the stables, a unique ship from Ellingå - dated 1163 - is on display together with a maritime exhibit with figure heads and model ships, an exhibit about the resistance movement in Jutland during the German occupation of Denmark in 1940-45, and - in the 16th century barn - a large collection of horse-drawn carriages. In connection with the museum lies Bangsbo Botanical Gardens, a herb garden and a deer park with a playground made from nature materials. Ellingå built in the eastern area around 1163 oak - it shows a dendrochronological dating. It is a medieval ship belonging to the Nordic clinker building tradition, this is also known from the Viking ships. For the construction of these ships was the stern blacksmith, who led the work, where several shipwrights, blacksmiths etc. was involved. Stem smith went into the forest with his men and found suitable timber for construction. For the ship's keel and planks should be retvokset oak, which was then cleaved along with wedges until the appropriate plank thickness was found - up to 16 planks of an oak trunk. For competition and frames it was curved grown wood that was used, for example, where the branches grew out of egestammen. When the ship was finished, it was smeared with tar and painted to protect the wood. In Viking and Medieval ships were built near forest and beach - maybe a grocery store, which would have transported their goods to and from Vendsyssel. Mast and rig was set up, and the ship was ready to sail. The sail was woven of wool and treated with animal fat, so it was water resistant. A ship which Ellingå could shoot a sizable speed - up to 10 knots under favorable weather conditions. To steer the ship was fitted with a rudder - virtually identical to Voersåroret. The rudder was fitted in the ship right side, starboard side, where styrismanden then you could move the ship while sailing. Ellingå probably had a crew of 4-5 men who have ordained navigation in the Kattegat-Skagerrak area and the other Danish waters. The voyage has taken place mainly in spring, summer and autumn, in winter, the vessels were probably laid up. There have been no oars to row the ship with. Presumably there have been a couple of pole rods for maneuvering on water during during approach. In the starboard side are two branch forks where these pole rods have been placed in service. In Denmark in the 1100s only a few port facilities. They were found only in major cities. Ellingå is a cargo ship that has been able to load some. 15 tons. Fully loaded, the ship had a depth of approx. 80 cm. The ship has been able to enter the shallow water into the creeks and up the rivers for loading and unloading of goods. It was necessary when there was traded outside the cities. Transportation of goods in large quantities by land was slow and almost impossible. Therefore, shipping very important when having traded and product clean transported. As Ellingå is found in an area where there has been an even very large agricultural production in the Middle Ages, it has been agricultural products such as cereals, fatty items, animals, etc. - but also salted herring that have been shipped. From Sweden and Norway have been downloaded soapstone cut, grindstones and fur. From Eastern Europe, tar, hemp etc. The area between the current Frederikshavn and Strandbygaard is today meadow through which Ellingå flows into the Kattegat. Ellingå was found and excavated in the area, which has been a natural harbor in the Viking Age and Middle Ages. There was probably a water depth of 1-1 ½ m then. The country has risen a bit - but it is more likely that natural harbor are jammed with drifting sand over of the 15-1600s. As the ships became larger in the late Middle Ages, they went farther south to Fladstrand, which was also natural harbor - but with much greater depth. That there has been a small community in the area, then Ellingå was sailing, witnesses complex story of. Elling church has recently been dated to the early 1200s, and the main farm Elling Farm and Lerbæk was also established in the area at this time. Not far away are two major manors, Knivholt and Bangsbo, which is also established in the early Middle Ages.
