4.0 out of 5 stars An amazing craft, 12 Mar. 2014
This review is from: The Viking Ship (Paperback)
This title covers what I believe to be the heart and soul of the touring exhibition that is Vikings: life legend and is currently on show at The British Museum (where I got my copy), this ancient Viking war ship is over 37 metres, and is the longest Viking ship ever discovered, to see it in situ is truly amazing. This tome is a great accompaniment to the exhibition at The British Museum; there is plenty of detailed information about this long boat that was actually discovered beneath the Roskilde Museum and is part of between 5 to 6 vessels discovered there. Without these long boats would there have been any Viking era to speak of and how different would Britain and other countries look today? The book contains rather good pictorials/diagrams showing some amazing features and form of this vessel and you get good overviews and understanding which is very reader friendly, and not just a dry academic treatment. This not just not guide book, it is also stand alone tome that gives over a wealth of information in its own right. That said this book does add additional level information while you are visiting the exhibition. This is a very good title that is highly recommended.
