The Sea Stallion in Lowestoft en route for Roskilde
The sea Stallion is a reconstruction of 30 metre long warship The original ship is exhibited in the Viking Ship Hall. It was built in the vicinity of Dublin, Ireland.
In 2007, the reconstruction of Skuldelev 2 will leave Roskilde and sail to Dublin where the original ship was built in 1042. The objective is to test and document the seaworthiness and manoeuvrability of the ship on the open sea and in coastal waters. At the same time, we will investigate the organisation, skills and practical arrangements necessary for the function of the ship and crew while rowing, under sail and ashore.
