The Sea-wolf

This is the longest viking ship ever found, currently on display at the British Museum in a special Vikings exhibition. In is over 37 m long and probably had about 40 pairs of oars. It was built in about 1025 in southern Norway.

 

About 20 per cent of the wood survives and is being displayed in this elegant frame to show how big it would have been.
