Get a picture of what life – and death- was like around 950 AD, the middle of the Viking Age in Denmark.  The Ladbyskibet Viking Chieftain Burial site is the only Viking burial site in the country.  Ladbyskiet, the Viking ship, is being reconstructed by skilled ship builders and volunteers, in much the same way the original would have been built centuries before.
