Draken Harald Hårfagre Viking Ship

The Draken Harald Hårfagre visited the Great Lakes in 2016. The Vikings were accomplished navigators, artisans, traders and storytellers, but their greatest contribution was seafaring and the the ships they built. The ship has a traditional dragon’s head and tail and is richly ornamented with patterns found in excavations. It’s the largest ocean going Viking ship in modern times. Here are some key shots from Bay City visit.
