Some details from the drakkar Oseberg currently in Oslo. This particular ship was a burial chamber but believed to have been sailed.

The place is very dark and flash light is not allowed for obvious reasons, so the pictures are a bit on the dark side.

Some monthy ago I was also in this museum in Oslo (business trip with some hours free time) but had only my mobile with me.
It was impressive to see this original boat there, imagine that they shipped over the atlantic and arrived in northern america long time ago in such boats
