Current data for Description

The Tune ship has not survived as well as the Gokstad and Oseberg ships, with which it shares the Vikingskipshuset. However, it appears to have been a faster, sea-going vessel that could have outsailed both. It is not a cargo ship, because it does not have much room for cargo, so the Kulturhistorisk museum suggests that it may have been a dedicated warship with a minimum crew of around 24.

It was built c.910 and is made of oak. It was dug up in 1867 at Nedre Haugen, Rolvsøy, near Fredrikstad, in circumstances that were not ideal and rather too hasty.

The mound at Nedre Haugen appears to have been the last resting place for a high status man, who was buried with weapons, three horses, and other grave goods.
