Viking troop transport to go on display at the British Museum

The Roskilde 6, the largest Viking long ship ever found, is traveling to England, not to loot and pillage, but to educate, 1,000 years after it carried troops for King Canute of Denmark. The warship wil be displayed by the British Museum in 2014.

The 118 ft. long ship was discovered in 1996 at Roskilde, Denmark. It is being slowly restored to go on display at the Danish National Museum in June, 2013, and later at the British Museum.
