Amazing discovery of another Viking ship
Only one year after the major discovery of the Gjellerstad Viking ship, the archaeologists from NIKU (Norwegian Institute for Cultural Heritage Research) have made yet another amazing discovery. By performing a large-scale archaeology survey, using Guideline Geo’s advanced MIRA (Malå Imaging Radar Array), another Viking ship has been discovered in Edøy, Norway.
The Edøy ship was, just as the Gjellerstad ship, discovered just below the surface, in the remains of what used to be an old burial mound. The outline of a 13m long keel is clearly visible in the radar data and according to initial estimations the ship measured 16-17m.
The radar instrument was developed by Guideline Geo and the survey approach and technological solutions around the radar (including post processing software) was developed by NIKU in collaboration with the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Archaeological Prospection and Virtual Archaeology (LBI ArchPro), and its many international partners.
