The Gislinge-boat sent for filming in Ireland

Published 25th Aug 2020

One of the Viking Ship Museum's reconstructions - the Gislinge-boat Langø, was sent to Ireland on Monday. There it will stay for the coming weeks acting as a rowing boat in a new film production.

The production is an international film production and we do not know much about the history of the film, only that it takes place in the Viking Age and we are waiting in excitement to see the results.

The Gislinge-boat is one of two reconstructions that were built at the Viking Ship Museum in 2015-2016 under an Open Source dogma, where all information about the building was available on the internet and made it possible for those interested to build their own version of the boat.
