Oseberg Viking Ship

I’ve been in and out of Norway almost weekly just lately – it’s a beautiful country, though it does rain a lot.

Recently we were in Tonsberg, and outside the hotel along the quayside we met a lady who showed us around a boatyard where volunteers were building replica Viking ships using original techniques & tools – no saws, only axes, chisels etc. They had a forge on site where they were making rivets & nails… She spent about an hour walking us around the site one evening – it was fabulous – right up my street.
