Vinland Longships
Vinland Longships is a Viking reenactment group that owns a 22 foot Viking Faering (four oared) boat. The Skogar √ěrostur (SKO-gar THROW-stur) which means "Blackbird" in Old Norse, is based on the faering boat buried with the Gokstad ship in Norway in the 9th century. The reenactors who founded Vinland Longships have organized educational demonstrations on Viking ships and Viking life, crafts and culture for the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, the Norwegian Embassy and the American Swedish Museum, among many others. They taught docents at the American Museum of Natural History in New York and have travelled to L'Anse aux Meadows, Canada, St. Petersberg, Russia and up and down the east coast educating people about Viking ship construction, navigation and history. The Adventures of the Skogar √ěrostur are documented at http://vinlandlongship.livejournal.com/.
