Enormous, Rare Viking Ship Burial Discovered By Radar

Archaeologists have found the outlines of a Viking ship buried not far from the Norwegian capital of Oslo. The 65-foot-long ship was covered over more than 1,000 years ago to serve as the final resting place of a prominent Viking king or queen. That makes it one of the largest Viking ship graves ever found.

Fascinating, thanks for the link :P

I will have to keep an eye on this not only for the ship itself but what other advances may be discovered! We have only scratched the surface of what we know about these remarkable people and their culture! :mrgreen:
A heartening sight by Day or Night, Dwarven warriors bold! To add their Might to any Fight, Precious more than Gold! A Dwarven friend is to the end, Never shall they fail! Their word does not bend, wherever they wend,
through Cavern, Hill or Dale!"
