Gokstadfæring to the Irish National Heritage Park

Reconstruction of a ship's boat from the Gokstad ship in Norway, 895

The original boat was found together with the Gokstad ship in 1880 and presumably served as a kind of tender for the 24-metre oceangoing ship.

It is not clear whether the boat carried a sail.
