Viking Boat Museum II

Viking Boat Museum IIObtained this in Oslo, Norway, May 13, 2015, at the Viking Ship Museum. This is similiar to a slightly smaller pin I have, but on this one the bow faces left instead of right. On the Gokstad farm in Sandefjord, there was a large burial mound. It was said that there was a ship within it. In the autumn of 1879, the two teenage sons on the farm were bored. They began to dig into the mound, to see if they could find anything interesting. And they certainly did.
