Longships

Here's where I'd still love to visit. I've read a lot about the way the longships were built, sails protected and so on but there's nothing like actually sailing in one. So I've relied on standing aboard the large boat already reproduced here in the Shed and making comparisons with all the sailing I've done on various types of vessel.

Anyone know of a longship in Britain?

Thanks Kim! I'll look it up. I'm thinking of reading an excerpt or generally chatting to supporters in an interesting place, as a small thank you.

That's great! And I see it was in Doctor Who as The Time Meddler, with 4 seconds removed by the censor as they were deemed too violent. It was of two Viking dummies being run through by Saxon swords. Thanks again, Kim!
