You will find numerous useful links to additional pages
of this Viking Ship site in the Contents section. Particularly revealing is the detailed analysis of the viking shipbuilding methods used by the vikings on the Gokstad.
If you are interested in purchasing a complete set of building
plans for this 9th century viking ship visit the Gokstad Plans page for details. These plans were drawn by members of the University of Oldsaksamling in Oslo, Norway. These plans are on a scale of 20/1 and could be used to build a model of the Gokstad as well as a full sized reproduction.
The designated pilot project for Merisol Services, Inc., a nonprofit public benefit corporation founded in Oregon in 1997, was the
construction of a full sized replica of the Gokstad.
