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, The Viking Ship 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, colonisation 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.

About the author:

Gareth Williams is Curator of Early Medieval Coins at the British Museum. He has worked extensively on warfare, coinage, wealth and exchange, towns in the Viking Age and historical re-enactment as a tool for both academic and public interpretation.
