Terrorizing coastlines, dominating rivers, and exploring the oceans, the Vikings achieved remarkable feats in open ships with a single sail. A dramatic find of a 30-meter long warship lead to a four year building process and a trial voyage from Denmark to Ireland and back in the world's biggest reconstructed Viking longship. Set sail with Louise Henrikson, Curator of the Viking Ship Museum, Roskilde, Denmark, as she and her fellow sailers recreate the journey of the Sea Stallion, from wreck to archaeological experiment, from dream to reality.
