The Tune ship was found in a large burial mound on the Haugen farm in Ostfold, and excavated in 1867. the Tune ship dates from about the same time as the Gokstad ship (ca 900 AD), and also contains the remains of a man of high rank. This chieftain had been placed in a wooden burial chamber built on board the ship, but his grave gifts have not survived due to poor preservation conditions. The ship itself is severely damaged.
