It became a world sensation when archaeologists discovered a new Viking ship on the farm Jellestad near Halden in Østfold last year. Prior to this, no buried Viking ship had been discovered in Norway for more than 100 years. On Monday 26th of August, the Museum of Cultural History (UiO) and the Cultural heritage section in Østfold County Council started to examine the sensational Gjellestad site in Halden Municipality. The Directorate of Cultural Heritage is providing the project with financial support. Now it is time to find out what the area holds and the state of any artefacts that are found there. Is there anything left of the ship itself?
