It seems I`m not the only one who is fascinated with the Viking age. Viking ship are still being built so many places in Scandinavia. One project I find especially interesting is this one in Tønsberg, Norway. They are building a copy of the Oseberg ship.
The last time they tried to do that the ship sunk. The reason was that it was an exact copy of the Oseberg ship. Unfortunately the Oseberg ship was found in a gazillion little pieces and wasn`t put together entirely right so when they made a copy of a ship that wasn`t exactly the way it should have been, things went wrong.
Now, with new calculations, they are trying again.
