stepping stones of maritime history


Some ship timbers found by chance on the left bank of the River Scheldt in Antwerp. Built in Nordic tradition and with medieval-style wrought iron nails, may belong to a Viking vessel, but C14 dating suggests that they postdate the Viking age.


Type of vessel comparable to Norwegion 'Gokstad snek', largest ship type of early Viking era. C14 dating suggest it dates from post Viking era. Source:
