Replica Craftsmanship of 1000 Years Ago

Please click on photo to see details of craftsmanship

Detail of craftsmanship as practiced 1000 years ago in the Norse culture. This 6.5 meter long boat, called a "Gokstadfaering", was used by Norsemen for many purposes during the Viking age.
The boat was on display at the Danish Museum in Dickson, West Central Alberta, on the weekend of August 22/23. It was built with the tools of its time by craftsmen at the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde, Denmark, and had just completed a tour across Canada
