For anyone interested in the Viking Era and especially Viking ships, I am lucky to have a brother who lives only a ten minute walk away from the harbor in Tønsberg, where a detailed replica of the original Oseberg ship is anchored most of each summer. In the last few years (since they started to build the Saga Oseberg), I have had the chance to visit my brother and add some more photos to my existing collection (featured in the blog post titled Building a Viking Ship).
Late one night in July this year, I was able to go down and have the ship all to myself for as long as I wanted. It gave me the chance to pay more attention to the craftsmanship and all the amazing detail that went into to re-building this historic viking ship. I may not know the name of each detail, but the photos should give you a pretty good idea. So here is part-two of the original blog post called Building a Viking Ship-Part I.
