Description

Image of a recreation Viking ship built by Royce Carrig of Perth. The wooden ship was built from plans of an excavated Viking ship, and can usually be found anchored in the Swan River at the 1st Pelican Point Sea Scout Group base in Crawley. It is based on one of the five eleventh-century ships deliberately sunk near Skuldelev in Denmark to create an underwater barrier protecting Roskilde. The originals and exact replicas are kept at the Viking Ship Museum, Roskilde: http://vikingeskibsmuseet.dk.
