Gungnir, Odi's spear. The Valknut, the symbol for creation, preservation, and destruction. Hugin, and Munin, Odin's Ravens... Surrounded by the runes, which Odin received by sacrificing himself to himself. Great Design!
The great sea expeditions of the Viking Age - The basis of the great sea expeditions undertaken by the Vikings was ship technology. The Viking ship was a piece of high technology based upon hundreds of years of development and experience. It was distinguished by its narrow keel and shallow draught. This made even the largest ocean-going warships suitable for sailing onto beaches and up rivers. Such tactics enabled, for example, the siege of Paris to be carried out in the year 885.
