MALÅ MIRA DISCOVERS VIKING SHIP
The archaeologists of NIKU (Norwegian Institute for Cultural Heritage Research) has made a sensational discovery – a 20 meter Viking ship in Østfold County in Norway.
The viking ship and several burial mounds and longhouses were discovered by using the MALÅ MIRA Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) solution. The ship is located at a shallow depth, only 50 cm. The discovery is of major historical significance – Only three well-preserved Viking ships have been excavated in Norway.
