April 21st Viking Ship.
NK 1956
The Tune Viking Ship.

NK 1956: 150 years have passed since the first Viking ship was excavated in Norway. The ship is made from clinkered oak planks, a style that was common to the Nordics. Its mast was placed just behind midship and both stern posts were raised. A special chamber had been built for the man interred in the ship and all of his burial gi­fts and weaponry.
