In the ships the dead were placed in a burial chamber which was erected in the stern of the ship. They were buried with a good supply of food and drink, horses and dogs, and both useful and decorative objects. When the ship were excavated, the graves were found to have been robbed, and the jewelry, weapons, gold and silver were no longer there. The objects made of wood and cloth were well preserved, because the ships had been buried in blue clay and covered with stones, clay and turf.
