Sea Stallion from Glendalough


A fascinating, detailed and intelligent article from the Smithsonian Magazine on one of the most elaborate re-creations of a Viking ship.

    Good article, but it shows the persistence of some conventional images. It explains that the Vikings exchanged goods for Muslim silver coins, which were accepted everywhere as a medium of exchange.... and then refers to this trade as "barter" !
