Fourth Viking Ship Unearthed in Norway

Norwegian researchers are excited by the latest find of an intact ship near the spot where the famous Gokstad ship was discovered in 1880. Norwegian archaeologists have hit the mother lode in the form of a mound near Toensberg, Norway. Near where the Gokstad ship, now on display in the Viking Ship Museum in Oslo, was found in 1880, the mound has now delivered four Viking ships.

"If we're lucky, we'll find some woodwork," said archaeologist Trude Aga Brun of Vestfold County.
