Description

A close-up digital photograph of a Viking dragon boat in the Balingup Medieval Carnivale. The warriors in the boat, possibly setting out on a raid, are quite accurately attired. The three warriors at the back of the boat are wearing helmets similar to those known from excavations of Vendal era (the period immediately preceding the Viking Age) sites in Sweden. The lack of body armour is also realistic for all but the most wealthy of warriors.
