Viking ships geekery!

Galloping along on the story (actually going back and forth on it a lot, present to past to future, as I tend to do).

I have a little problem — I’m writing about Vikings and don’t know a damn thing about ships, or ocean stuff, or any of the important stuff that you need to know about maritime warfare or even maritime day-to-day action.

Fortunately the internet has cool websites like this one, where you can read all about a modern-day Viking ship that has been built and is gorgeous and is currently sailing the waves.

Here’s the website and it has these amazing pics.

Also reading good stuff on Quora about what it was like to travel on a Viking ship.

Also a few Viking tropes to avoid.

Better start writing!
