Borreparken Viking Ship

Viking ship drawing

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.
