Longships

Longships were invented and used by the Norsemen for trade, commerce, exploration, and warfare during the Viking Age. They were designed for speed and agility, and to travel unexplored waters. The ships were perhaps the greatest technical and artistic achievement during its time.

The particular skills and methods employed in making longships are still used worldwide.
