2015 (English)In: Small Things – Wide Horizons: Studies in Honour of Birgitta Hårdh / [ed] Lars Larsson, Fredrik Ekengren, Bertil Helgesson, Bengt Söderberg, Oxford: Archaeopress, 2015, 1, 275-280 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This text is about the ship replica Viking, built as a copy of the Norwegian Gokstad ship and sailed from Bergen, Norway, to the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893. It is argued that the ship started off as a replica that aroused a lot of enthusiasm among people on its voyage across the Atlantic, then fell into oblivion for some time, and has recently been reawakened and put on display as a historic relic in its own right. The Viking is transformed into an original testimony of modern Vikings conquering the West.
