Great Viking ship Crystal Sculpture
Large Red and Hand painted
The Vikings are best remembered as fearsome warriors. Their long lasting legacy owes just as much to their seafaring aptitude. Both the Vikings’ ships and the skill with which they utilised them were key to the success of many of their exploits. From fishing and exploring the oceans to raiding.
Viking boats came in many shapes and sizes. The most iconic and effective Viking vessel was undoubtedly the longship. Long narrow and flat Longships were fast and durable. Capable of navigating both choppy seas and shallow rivers. They were also light enough to be carried over land.
The Vikings were characterised as bloodthirsty across Europe. Their craft and innovation of the shipbuilding that enabled their conquests deserves recognition.
Leif Erikson led a Viking crew to North America in around 1,000 AD. 500 years before Christopher Columbus set foot on the New World. It makes clear the Vikings remarkable maritime prowess. It also showcases the robustness of their boats.
