How to build a Viking Ship 

w/ professional boat builder Thomas Finderup

2pm

Danish boat builder Thomas Søes Finderup has worked as such for the past 32 years. He’s devoted 18 years to building Viking and medieval ships, imitating the ships from these eras down to the smallest detail. The work has been done with exact copies of the Vikings' tools and with Viking working methods.

The most recent Viking ship he has been involved in building was the Saga Oseberg: a reconstruction of the most spectacular Viking ship ever found. The Oseberg ship is dated to 830 and was found in a burial mound in Norway, in 1903. Ships like these contributed to the Vikings’ strong influence on their time - both in trade and war.

Thomas Finderup’s talk will be based on the work with the Saga Oseberg, and will include how the Vikings built their ships and what working methods and tools they used. 

Cost: $10 for Members, $15 general admission
