Miniature version of the Longship, also called Viking ship. Is a type of sail-and-oar vessel that predominated in northern European waters for more than 1,500 years. It played an important role in history. Ranging from 45 to 75 feet (14 to 23 metres) in length. Clinker-built and carrying a single square sail, the longship was exceptionally sturdy in heavy seas. Fully developed examples have been found dating from 300 BCE. It carried the Vikings on their piratical raids of the 9th century and bore Leif Eriksson to America in 1000. It was also used by Dutch, French, English, and German merchants.
