DISIR – Building a Viking Longship – This is a large scale, as in multi-year, project. We are building a slightly smaller scale version of a viking longship based on the Gottstad. As feasible it will be an authentic reproduction using the same tools and methods as how the Vikings made them. We have been working with, and will continue to consult and work with, museums and longship recreation ship builders in Denmark, Iceland, and Norway. Their knowledge and experience is extensive and vital to this project.
Part of this project is allowing foundation members and members of the general public to participate in the construction of the longship along with holding training sessions and creating educational material about Viking Longships.
