Whoa! The views on my site are exploding today! Must have something to do with the start of the Gjellestad ship excavation… see NKU.no.
Updated the Gjellestad ship article with an absolutely stunning visual reconstruction of the archaeological site. I wish they did this of each and every archaeological project out there (and my wishful thinking continues…)!
Good news about the Gjellestad ship. It was indeed made during the Viking Age. For more information, see The Gjellestad Viking Ship article, it is updated with a new link.
Flashback to 16 October 2018: I reported the find of a new Viking ship in Norway. See Headlines & Grapevines: Oct-Dec 2018. The Gjellestad ship, as it has been dubbed, will be excavated in the next two weeks. So, watch The Viking Age Archive for more news, or check out the NIKU site!
