The Oseberg Ship

This ship is in an excellent state of preservation, just like the Gokstad ship. Unlike the ocean-going Gokstad, the Oseberg is more of an inshore vessel, not built for voyages on the high seas. She is more in the nature of a royal yacht for pleasure cruising. The richly decorated panels on bow and stern are also indications of this.
