The Sea Stallion from Glendalough is a full-scale replica of the 30m long warship, Skuldelev 2, built in Dublin in the 1040s. In the late 11th century, the ship was used as part of a blockade in Roskilde Fjord, and in 1962, five ships from there were excavated. Today the Skuldelev 2 is on display in The Viking Ship Hall (Roskilde), where it bears witness to the historical connection between Denmark and Ireland. Building and testing reconstructions of the ships is an important part of the Viking Ship Museum's research. The journey of the Sea Stallion from Glendalough covered 1200 nautical miles, from Roskilde to Dublin. This full-colour book of photographs magnificently documents this extraordinary voyage, allowing the reader to participate in every aspect of the journey.
