In 2007 a crew of 65 brave men and women set sail on a journey from Roskilde back to Dublin in a 30m (100ft) Viking longship named "Havhingsten fra Glendalough" ("Sea Stallion from Glendalough"), a Danish reconstruction of the Skuldelev 2 ship on display in the Roskilde Viking Ship Museum and originally built around 1040 near Dublin. BBC TimeWatch follows this amazing journey of experimental maritime archaeology.

Sea Stallion from Glendalough (Havhingsten fra Glendalough) The Viking Longship arrived at Custom House Quay, Dublin at 1.35 p.m. on Tuesday 14th August 2007, to be greeted by the Lord Mayor of Dublin Councillor Paddy Bourke and Minister of State at the Department of Finance Mr Noel Ahern, T.D.. Thousands of people lined the quaysides and official boats led by the Irish Naval Service and Dublin Port tugs led the flotilla of welcome. The Bells of Christ Church Cathedral and other churches rang in welcome and the ships horns of visiting ships in the Port joined the fanfare. A Guard of Honour and the Band of 4 Western Brigade gave the salute to the Danish Party. Over two days large crowds visited the Viking Age Craft Village set up alongside the Ship moored at CHQ and got to see the Longship. The Sea Stallion Ship was moved to the National Museum of Ireland at Collins Barracks and will form part of a special exhibition until June 2008.

Every summer I sail the mighty Sea Stallion, a faithful replica of a viking warship. The three-week raid is packed with adventure, camaraderie, exhaustion, and tons upon tons of fun. These are just a few moments of the awe inspiring trip, and they relay only a fraction of the experience, but there you go. If you want the whole package, you'll just have to come along!

Sometimes it is hard to imagine that this was just a couple of months ago. Draken and her crew have been through storms on the North Atlantic Ocean. What an achievement, sailing from Norway, to Shetland Islands, Faroe Islands, Iceland, Greenland, Newfoundland - just like the Vikings did a 1000 years ago, and into the St Lawrence Seaway, trough the locks and into the Great Lakes. She made it, it is a real modern Viking voyage.

History Documentary hosted by Michael Praed and published by BBC broadcasted as part of BBC Timewatch series in 2008 From Denmark to Dublin - the Viking Ship's Voyage On 1 July 2007, 65 volunteers are setting off on an extraordinary voyage. After ten years of meticulous preparation, a crew of intrepid volunteers will sail a reconstructed Viking warship, the 'Sea Stallion' from Glendalough (the Irish location where she originated), from Denmark to Dublin - a journey of over 1,000 miles through some of the most challenging waters in the world. The project is not just a thrilling adventure on the high seas, it is one of the largest experimental archaeology projects ever conducted. The team behind the boat's construction hope to gain a unique understanding of Viking technology, and the men who made these ships one of the most feared sights of the Dark Ages. This is experimental archaeology pushed to its limit - the crew will be crossing the same waters in the same type of vessel as the Vikings. They will gain an insight into the hardships, risks and realities that those intrepid warriors would have faced a millennium ago. Each member of crew has less than one square metre where they must live, sleep and eat. Privacy is impossible. The ship has no shelter from the weather, no cleaning facilities and no lavatories. They will be living virtually on top of each other for six weeks and this will test their camaraderie to the limit. It will also be a challenging test for the boat itself. No one knows whether the structure they've built will be able to withstand the rigours of the open sea. If a mistake has been made in the reconstruction, the ship could be destroyed by the forces of the waves and wind. Every crew member knows there's a risk of shipwreck in the North Sea.

Dragon ships were large longships that had carved heads of dragons and other magical beings mounted on their bow. This video shows some glances from the construction of such a ship: Dragon Harald Fairhair. We are using the best of the old Norwegian clinker-building tradition and combining this with knowledge obtained from archaeological material, Norse literature etc. Our aim is to recreate a ship with superb seaworthiness - as described in the Old Norse sagas.

The Viking Ship Museum in Oslo houses the world's best preserved real viking ships from the Viking Age. The largest of the ships, the Oseberg Ship, is believed to have been the burial site for one or two very wealthy Viking women, perhaps even a queen. The Oseberg ship was found in 1903 and excavated over the two following years. New viking age discoveries and finds of this size are rare so travel to Oslo and learn more about the Vikings and their culture! http://www.visitoslo.com/en/articles/visit-the-vikings

Twenty-five troops escaped with minor injuries after a helicopter carrying US Marines crashed at sea on Monday while attempting to land on an amphibious transport dock. Assigned to the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit, the CH-53E Super Stallion helicopter was carrying 25 people, including 17 Marines and eight Navy Sailors, back to the USS Mesa Verde from a training exercise in Djibouti when the incident occurred. As the chopper was about to land on the ship in the Gulf of Aden, it crashed and ended up in the ocean. The U.S. Naval Forces said the crash was not triggered by hostile attacks. All soldiers on board were rescued and several who suffered minor injuries received medical attention on the ship. The transport dock was deployed to the Persian Gulf in June as militant group Islamic State advanced toward Baghdad. ------------------------------------------------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

'Havhingsten fra Glendalough' the largest yet reconstructed Viking longship arrives in Berlin (Germany) in connection with the Viking exhibition at Martin-Gropius-Bau that starts next week. I followed it from Old Monbijou Bridge (at the Bode-Museum visible to the right) to its anchorage between Friedrichstraße and Marshall Bridge. Unfortunately, I confused zoom and pause during the passage under the railway bridge. The mike switches off when the zoom key is pressed, so it cut off a bit of my comments.

The Sea Stallion is a prototype for an interactive museum exhibit created by Roskilde University Experience Lab in partnership with Roskilde Viking Ship Museum. It is built on a framework consisting of a Kinect Sensor and 6 projectors creating a circular space where any information can be displayed in a continuous view. The content presents itself to the participant, reacting instantly to change in position. Audio, video and photographs are localized to the person in the space. Technology developed by Nikolaj "Dzl" Møbius of GeekPhysical and by Nicolas Padfield of illutron.

Their design was elegant in its simplicity, a long open boat with a single square sail and a row of oars on each side. But decorated with fearsome prows and sternposts resembling dragons and filled with some of the most dreaded warriors of all time, theywere among the most important ships in history. THE VIKING LONGSHIPS traces the saga of exploration and conquest that marked the age of the Norsemen and their fabled ships. Visit world-famous museums in Oslo and Denmark for an up-close look at these ancient boats. Discover how the Vikings used their rugged ships to spread their influence as far away as the New World, and experience the terror of a Viking raid through dramatic re-enactments and period accounts. From the pages of legend to a short trip to sea aboard a modern reconstruction, this is the ultimate look at one of the most fabled vessels of all time. http://www.vikingeskibsmuseet.dk/ http://www.osebergvikingskip.no/

One can see the cliker building technique and the air bubbles show how the strakes are watertight. As the bubbles run along them, it is obvious how the planks/strakes are shaped.

The Sea Stallion of Glendalough is a replica of a longship that sailed from Dublin in Ireland to Roskilde, Denmark in 1042. Last weekend the ship was taken out onto the water in one of it's final testing sessions before it embarks on it's historic journey on July 1. STORYLINE: Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, is a city built on water. The harbour area of Nyhavn dates back to the 12th century, a time when the Vikings raided and explored most parts of Europe. It was the Vikings who placed Denmark firmly on the world map. They pillaged, traded and settled, establishing an image and reputation that has survived to this day. In July Danes will once more celebrate the Viking age when a replica longship sets sail from Denmark to Ireland. Crew member Paul Nyhardt says he can't for the journey to begin. He says they are sailing the ship back along it's original route. The Sea Stallion of Glendalough is a replica of one of the Viking longships found at the bottom of Roskilde Fjord in 1962. Painstakingly rebuilt over the course of four years, the 30 metre (98 foot) long vessel is one of the largest Viking ships ever found and represents the pinnacle of shipbuilding during the Viking age. The quality of Viking ship building is something that is still appreciated today.
