Model of a Viking single-masted, clinker plank hull ship with 32 oars. This model is based on a viking burial ship which was excavated at Gokstad in Norway in 1880. The ship is believed to date from around 850 AD. This model was made by S.F. Anderson and was entered in the Science Museum of Victoria's 1970 centenary model-making competition. It was later purchased by the Museum in 1971.
