The Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde is the Danish museum for ships and shipping in prehistoric and medieval times. The museum collection is based on the five viking ships which were excavated at Skuldelev in 1962 and through reconstructions of those and other vessels, the museum aims to bring life to the archaeological finds. The boat collection continues to grow and reveals how the wooden vessels of today still show visible evidence of having viking forefathers – it has not been necessary to change the basic principles of boat construction in a thousand years! The book provides an overview of the various boat types in the collection. Leveringstid kan forekomme.
