“Viking Longships: Wolves of the Sea”
John Hale
AIA Joukowsky Lecturer), University of Louisville

Viking ships are among the most remarkable artifacts in the entire realm of archaeological discovery, dominating European history for the three centuries between 800 and 1100 A.D. As warships, they terrorized coasts from Scotland to the Mediterranean; as trading craft they ventured down the rivers of Russia to Byzantium, and as vessels of exploration and colonization they crossed the open Atlantic to Ireland, Iceland, Greenland and ultimately America. Yet all these amazing achievements were accomplished by open, un-decked ships with a few oars and a single square sail.
