Viking history is recreated under O.B.Wiik protection

For four years, the Oseberg vikingrav foundation will build a replica of the world’s largest preserved Viking ship, the Gokstad ship. There will be many hours with ax and mallet as the ship will be built in the traditional way. But one thing is different from when the Vikings built their ship: a custom-made canvas from O.B.Wiik. With it above their heads, they can recreate history, without getting historical weather conditions in their heads.
