Viking Lecture Series: How to build a Viking Ship with professional boat builder Thomas Finderup.

Thomas Søes Finderup is a Danish boat builder who has worked as such for the last 32 years. For 18 years he has worked on building Viking ships 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 latest Viking ship he was 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 having such a great influence on their time - both in trade and war.

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