Sleds from the Oseberg Ship Burial

Title

Sleds from the Oseberg Ship Burial

Subject

Archaeological artefacts

Description

The Oseberg ship burial include four sleds or sleighs, all decorated with wooden carving. When they were found, traces of red, reddish brown, black, yellow, and grey white paint were found on some of the artefacts, and the sleds were among the most colourful items. One of the photographs shows a reconstruction of how the colour on one sled would have looked. Unfortunately, the need to preserve the timber resulted in the loss of the paint.
