Viking LongshipsBook - 2002
Viking longships were wonders of shipbuilding. They could travel down shallow rivers or across the open sea. They could sail close to a beach and land anywhere. Unlike other ships of the time, longships could change the sails position and sail easily in another direction. The Viking people felt very strongly about their ships. They sometimes sank their ships as gifts to their gods.
