The great sea expeditions of the Viking Age - The basis of the great sea expeditions undertaken by the Vikings was ship technology. The Viking ship was a piece of high technology based upon hundreds of years of development and experience. It was distinguished by its narrow keel and shallow draught. This made even the largest ocean-going warships suitable for sailing onto beaches and up rivers. Such tactics enabled, for example, the siege of Paris to be carried out in the year 885.
Viking Ship, Oslo. Great craftmanship... The vikingboats were the really fast race boats of the past! And they could even cross against the wind. We have many fine replicas under sail and it is sometimes possible to go for a trip. Roskilde and the one in Oslo in Norge are the best museums to go, If you are into vikingships and their history.
