Viking ships were marine vessels of unique structure, built by the Vikings during the Viking Age.
The boat-types were quite varied, depending on what the ship was intended for, but they were generally characterized as being slender and flexible boats, with symmetrical ends with true keel. They were clinker built, which is the overlapping of planks riveted together. Some might have had a Dragon's head or other circular object protruding from the bow and stern for design, although this is only inferred from historical sources. Viking ships were not just used for their military prowess but for long-distance trade, exploration and colonization.
In the literature, Viking ships are usually seen divided into two broad categories: merchant ships and warships. These categories are overlapping; some kinds of merchant ships, built for transporting cargo specifically, could also be used as warships. The majority of Viking ships were designed for sailing rivers, fjords and coastal waters, while a few types, such as the knarr, could navigate the open sea and even the ocean. The Viking ships ranged from the Baltic Sea to far from the Scandinavian homelands, to Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Greenland, Newfoundland, the Mediterranean, the Black Sea and Africa.

FAQ- Design, Source, & Delivery Process
Are Heimdallsworkshop items made in the U.S.A? Depending on the piece you order we have a team that works on your item in Texas, North Carolina, Ukraine, & Surat, India. The vast majority of our items are prepared in the U.S.A but we are currently working on hospitality projects with expert carvers in Ukraine and India.
Who designs the pieces? All of the designs are made by our team here in the U.S.A, however we take our inspiration from Norse and Viking mythology so the characters are not unique to us & are well known within the Nordic Mythology spectrum. We take their depiction from our research from various sources and then we sketch our own design and create a time-less piece that can fit into any modern or even ancient themed home!
Can I customize a product? We are currently limited on customization, however if you really need an item customized, we would suggest reaching our team well before the date that you would need it (At-least 2 months) as we would need to go through the entire process of design, fabrication, quotation and delivery for your specific piece.
