The Viking boat

The Walrus is a full size waterline replica of a Viking trading ship from Denmark (Skuldelev 3). It was built of oak by a specialist team of Viking boat builders from Roskilde in Denmark. Originally displayed in the National Maritime museum in Falmouth it is now beached beside the Saxon longhall for the purposes of peaceful trade.

A sailing replica of the boat, the Roar Ege, was built in Roskilde and has undertaken many voyages to test its sailing qualities.
