Built around the year 817, the Oseberg
ship was found in 1904 in a burial mound located on a farm
70 miles south of Oslo, Norway. Thousands of wood fragments were removed, treated with
creosote, and then reassembled. The ship is now located at The Viking Ship Hall at Bygdoy,
Oslo, Norway.Viking Links:The World of the Vikings.
