Roskilde, Copenhagen: 9 reviews and 22 photos
At the end of the 10th century, a number of naval barricades were built in Roskilde Fiord, in order to protect the important trading center Roskilde from attacks. In examinations made in the years 1957-59, done by the National Museum, it became clear that viking ships had been sunk at the barriers, and constituted the main body of the Peberrenden blockade. In 1962 the excavation of the ships commenced, and in 1969 a museum, dedicated to these ships and their story, was opened in Roskilde, a town app. 30 kilometers (20 miles) West of Copenhagen.
