Here is a link to something very amazing! The Ansteorran Longship Company has been building a Viking Longship! Talk about an AWESOME project. I am impressed, totally impressed.

Being Byzantine, my persona would be familiar with the Scandanavians because so many made up the Varangian Guard, and also were part of the Rus. So anything that relates, like this Viking ship, is very exciting to me!
The website is not working at the moment, but when it is, it is here. I hope when you read this it will be back working, so you can see the pictures.
This project has been going on for TWENTY years! They had to build the building to house the project, then get the right kind of wood and tools, and they had to do some smaller projects to develop the skills to build this ship from scratch. They recently turned it!! Which is a major milestone in the building of a ship. Talk about incredible!
So, go there, enjoy, have fun dreaming. Can you imaging how amazing it would be to be ON this thing?
