Colette, Violet, Pamela, Nicky, and Paulina are working on a historical restoration when they learn about an ancient Viking vessel that sank off the shore of Whale Island. Rumor has it that the ship is full of treasure, and what's worse, some shadowy figure is plotting to steal it!

The Viking ship is one of the most iconic images of the Viking Age. As well as including well-known vessels such as the spectacular ship-burials from Gokstad and Oseberg in southern Norway, Viking Ships introduces the newly-conserved Roskilde 6 ship from Denmark. Measuring at over 37 metres, this is the longest Viking ship ever discovered and will form the core of the touring exhibition Vikings: life and legend. The Vikings used their shipbuilding skills to command the sea; their famous ships permitted the exploration, colonization and the raids for which they are best known. This book will explore the evolution of their sea-going vessels and celebrate this outstanding feature of the Viking Age.

A Short Guide for the Use of Visitors to the Viking-Ship From Gokstad (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from A Short Guide for the Use of Visitors to the Viking-Ship From Gokstad The ship had been made both for sailing and rowing. About midship is placed a keelson for the mast to rest upon. Above this, on the beams, is a large block af oak, cut out at both ends in the shape of a fish's tail. Hence the name of mastefisk, which is still used of the part of the-deck round the mast. Through a large opening made in this mastefisk, the mast was lowered and let into the keelson. When the mast had been raised, the after part of the ope ning was filled up with a large piece of oak, which at the same time served to steady the mast. When this piece was removed, there was an opening large enough to allow the mast to be lowered. The plain capstan in the fore hold no doubt served to raise and lower the mast. The mast was probably fitted with a yard and a large sail. Right in front of the mast, and, also further fore and aft are vertical beams with a gaff, on which to place the spars. A few spars were found on them, of which one no doubt is the vessel's yard; another the top part of the mast. That the ship was propelled by oars as well is proved by the existing oars, and, likewise, by the openings for them made in the third strake from above. There are 16 such openings on each side; the strake in which they are made, is the fourteenth from the keel and is somewhat thicker than the rest. This is, also, the case with the tenth, against which the upper part of the frames and the ends of the beams are resting. There is, as will be seen an incision in the after part of the openings, for the blades to pass through, when the oars were to be used. In the fore part of the ship it is especially seen how the bottom was covered with boards resting on the beams.

The Sagas of Icelanders are enduring stories from Viking-Age Iceland filled with love and romance, battles and feuds, tragedy and comedy. Yet these tales are little read today, even by lovers of literature. The culture and history of the people depicted in the Sagas are often unfamiliar to the modern reader, though the audience for whom the tales were intended would have had an intimate understanding of the material. This text introduces the modern reader to the daily lives and material culture of the Vikings. Topics covered include Icelandic religion, social customs, the settlement of disputes, and major milestones in life of Viking-Age Icelanders. Issues of dispute among scholars, such as the nature of settlement and the division of land, are addressed in the text.

This book, the first in our Companions to Medieval Studies series, is a brief introduction to the history, culture, and religion of the Viking Age and provides an essential foundation for study of the period. The companion begins by defining the Viking Age and explores topics such as Viking society and religion. Viking biographies provide students with information on important figures in Viking lore such as Harald Bluetooth, Eirik the Red, Leif Eiriksson, and Gudrid Thorbjarnardaughter, a female Viking traveler. A compelling chapter entitled "How Do We Know About the Vikings?" and a case study on the wandering monks of St. Philibert introduce students to the process of historical inquiry. The book concludes with a discussion of the impact of the Vikings and their legacy. Pedagogical resources include a detailed chronology, study questions, a glossary, 4 maps, and 14 images. Text boxes provide information on outsider perceptions of the Vikings, a detailed account of a Viking raid, and a description of a chieftain's dwelling in Arctic Norway. This study also benefits from a multi-disciplinary approach including insights and evidence from such diverse disciplines as archaeology, philology, religion, linguistics, and genetics.
