Saga Oseberg

The Oseberg ship is considered to be the world's most important Viking Age find and was excavated at Oseberghaugen in Tønsberg. The ship was sent to Oslo, where it is now on display at the Viking Ship Museum. There are probably many people in Tønsberg who think the ship should be returned to the city. That's probably why a local foundation built a full-size replica of the ship, using tools and craft techniques from the Viking Age. Many of the materials used to build the ship did not come from far away. It's interesting to think that the keel, cut from a 150-year-old oak, was felled on Jarlsberg's main farm. And the 90 square metre sail was made from wool from free-range sheep in Westfold and woven in Tønsberg. The ship has been christened "Saga Oseberg", and can be admired down by the harbour in Tønsberg.
