Borreparken Viking Ship

A new discovery in 2019.

Viking Age Relevance

This ship was found with georadar detection in March 2019 in Borreparken, Norway. No excavations are planned for the near future, only non-invasive research.1

Because of this is only a recent find, not much is known about the age or contents of this ship, other than that it seems to be a boat burial.
