Viking ship models.

Viking ship models. Krampmacken in the lower right with the sail, length 8 m. Skuldelev 1 and 3 from Denmark, 13,5 m and 16,3 m. In top is Oseberg from Norway, length 21,6 m. Krampmacken's predecessors were intended to be sailed and rowed in the Baltic Sea and on the rivers, and hauled on land. Therefore the size couldn't be very much larger. The other ships were intended to cross larger waters and not to travel the rivers.
