The original Sea Stallion, called Skuldelev 2, was built by Vikings in 1042 near Dublin, Ireland. “Sea Stallion from Glendalough” is a reconstruction of this ship, excavated as a wreck from the bottom of the Roskilde Fjord in 1962. Painstakingly built by the Roskilde Museum in Denmark from original lines reconstructed from actual intentionally scuttled ships in Roskilde harbor, the 98 foot replica ship is the largest of five reconstructed by the Museum. The ship is currently completing the second leg of a journey begun last summer from Roskilde, Denmark to Dublin, Ireland. For the rest of the story CLICK HERE.
