Five Viking ships were scuttled in Roskilde Fjord, Denmark, in the 11th century, to protect the city from attack. The ships were discovered during dredging activities in the 1960s, and have been salvaged and restored for display in the beautiful Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde. The museum sits right on the fjord, with huge windows overlooking the greenish water. The displays are stark and simple, which lets one see just how beautifully these ships were put together. The Danes are rightfully proud of their Viking connections!
